Abstract

Immune response genes (IRG) play an important role in inflammation and control of infection after allogeneic transplantation. The International Histocompatibility Working Group (IHWG) in hematopoietic cell transplantation took a candidate gene approach to define the risks associated with genetic variation for a panel of well-characterized IRG.
