HLA TYPING for A B C DR & DQ using NGS High Resolution Test

HLA Typing is done to check compatibility between potential donor and patient for organ transplants. The test is conducted on the most significant histocompatibility complex in human cells, which are responsible for tissue typing. A tissue type is defined as a group of individuals who have similar histocompatibility antigens at cell surface level.

What is HLA Typing?

Human leukocyte antigen (HLA) typing is a method to determine how closely the tissues of a transplant recipient match the tissues of their potential donor.
Human leukocyte antigen (HLA) typing is used to match patients and donors for bone marrow or cord blood transplants.
HLA typing is a medical test used to assess whether organ and blood marrow donors are suitably and safely matched to a transplant recipient.

What is an HLA match?

Human leukocyte antigens are proteins you inherit from your parents. Together, your HLA proteins, or markers, make up your HLA type.
Your immune system uses HLA markers to recognize which cells belong in your body and which do not.
An HLA match is the number of HLA markers that any two people have in common. HLA matching is usually based on either eight or 10 HLA markers.

Who is likely to be an HLA match?

The most likely place to find an HLA match is among siblings who have the same mother and father.
You have a 25-per cent chance of inheriting the same HLA markers as your sibling (an HLA-identical match). You have a 25-per cent chance of inheriting none of the HLA markers your sibling inherited.
You have a 50-per cent chance of inheriting half of the same HLA markers as your sibling (a haploidentical match).

How do we find the best HLA match?

When a doctor recommends a bone marrow transplant, the patient, their siblings and sometimes their parents will have samples collected for HLA Typing
If a relative is an identical match, the lab will do further testing to be absolutely sure that they are the best match possible
If no sibling is a good match, the doctor may ask to test other family members. Your parents and children have the next best chance of being closely matched with you.

What is the cost of the HLA Typing Test?

The cost of the HLA Typing Test is Rs.24000

How many days does it take for reports?

Reports take 12-15 working days

Is HLA Typing the Same as Blood Typing?

No. HLA typing is much more complicated than blood typing because there are many more HLA markers that make a person's cells unique.
There are only eight basic blood types, and many people can safely receive more than one type of blood.
To receive only blood from a person, you do not need to be an HLA match, because HLA is not present on red blood cells.

How Is It Performed?

Allele-level resolution data at primary HLA typing is ideal for most histocompatibility testing laboratories.
Many high-throughput molecular HLA typing approaches are unable to determine the phase of observed DNA sequence polymorphisms, leading to ambiguous results.
The clinical impact of achieving this level of resolution HLA typing data is likely to consider, particularly in applications such as organ and blood stem cell transplantation

The HLA system refers to a group of related genes that play an important role in the immune system. Together, the proteins made from these genes form something called the major histocompatibility complex (MHC). These proteins are attached to almost all of the cells of your body (excluding red blood cells).
HLA typing is a genetic test. For the test, you'll need to give some sort of tissue sample. This is usually from a swab from inside your cheek or from a blood sample drawn from a vein in your arm. Usually, no preparation for the test is necessary.
HLA matching is used to match patients and donors for blood or marrow transplants. If 2 people share the same HLA type, they are considered a 'match'. It's much more complicated than blood typing.
Ideally, the donor and recipient would be perfectly HLA matched. However, this is not always possible. The details of this depend on the specific type of transplant and on other medical circumstances.
You and potential donors will have blood drawn or will have the inside of your cheek swabbed.

The blood or cheek swab is tested in a lab to figure out your HLA type.

Your HLA type will be compared to potential donors to see if there is a match. Your doctor will decide which donor has the best HLA match for you.
There are many HLA markers. Each HLA marker has a name. The names are letters or combinations of letters and numbers. Each of your brothers and sisters who has the same mom and dad as you have a 1 in 4 chance (25%) of being a complete, or full, match.
Reports take 12-15 working days
