Abstract

Unrelated donor registries use a variety of strategies for human leukocyte antigen typing newly recruited volunteers and for prospective typing and file maintenance projects. The approaches change over time with respect to the level of resolution and loci tested based on costs, advances in technologies and emerging clinical outcome data from matching studies.
