Histocompatibility testing guidelines for hematopoietic stem cell transplantation using volunteer donors: report from The World Marrow Donor Association

Abstract

The World Marrow Donor Association has formulated guidelines for establishing the extent and quality of histocompatibility testing for unrelated donor registries, umbilical cord blood banks, and transplant centers involved in international exchange of hematopoietic stem cells for allogeneic transplantation. The ability to identify unrelated stem cell donors in one country for patients in another country requires cooperation and standardization in many areas. The adoption of guidelines for histocompatibility testing, such as those summarized in this report, will facilitate these opportunities and rapidly provide accurately typed donors for patients in need.
