A session of the 14 International Histocompatibility Workshop brought together experts representing the major clinical protocols, clinical research, and basic research dealing with overcoming the barrier of alloantibody in transplantation and in understanding the mechanisms by which those antibodies exert their effect on a transplanted organ. This report is an integration of the presentations of those scientists.
