What is HLA typing?

HLA stands for human leucocyte antigen. HLA typing is a kind of genetic test used to identify certain individual variations in a person’s immune system. Tissue typing is a procedure in which the tissues of a prospective donor and recipient are tested for compatibility prior to transplantation. Mismatched donor and recipient tissues can lead to rejection of the tissues.
