Serological Testing of the HLA Antigens
In recent years, the demand for HLA testing has increased greatly, to the extent that it has outpaced the capacity of HLA-typing laboratories to adequately fulfill this need. This is due, in part, to an increasing application of HLA typing not only to organ and tissue transplantation, but also to granulocyte and platelet transfusion (Mittal et al., 1976). To provide optimally HLA-matched platelets to various thrombocytopenic patients, it is necessary that large numbers of potential donors be HLA-phenotyped prospectively.
