Reagents, Immunoassay, Immunology, Tissue Typing

Definition : Immunoassay reagents used for quantitative or qualitative analysis to characterize tissues according to the histocompatibility of their antigens. These reagents are mostly used in tests (lymphocytotoxicity tests) to determine either total class I human leukocyte antigens (HLA) or total class II HLA. Some reagents for tissue typing are used to determine the degree of immune cellular stimulation of the recipient's T lymphocytes by donor cells (mixed lymphocyte reaction tests) in a culture that includes blood from both the donor and the recipient. Tests for tissue typing are mostly used to match donor and recipient tissues before transplants. Certain HLA types are associated to specific diseases (e.g., ankylosing spondylitis).

One Lambda Inc

In the early days of histocompatibility, the United States government offered grants that provided research laboratories with typing reagents for HLA studies. UCLA professor Paul Terasaki utilized this funding to develop a tissue typing tray that consistently and accurately assigned HLA antigens. Terasaki trays quickly became an important tool in the HLA laboratory, and UCLA began making them available through the government grants. The distribution of this standardized tissue typing tray helped advance the early identification of HLA antigens and ensured that the relationship between HLA and transplantation would be further examined.
