Descriptor English: Histocompatibility Testing
Descriptor Spanish: Prueba de Histocompatibilidad
Descriptor pruebas de histocompatibilidad
Entry term(s) pruebas cruzadas tisulares
tests de histocompatibilidad
tipificación de tejidos
tipificación del HLA
Scope note: Identificación de los antígenos principales de histocompatibilidad de los donantes de órganos y de los receptores potenciales, generalmente con pruebas serológicas. La pareja donante-receptor debe tener grupos sanguíneos ABO idénticos y ser lo más idéntica posible con respecto a los ANTÍGENOS DE HISTOCOMPATIBILIDAD a fin de minimizar la probabilidad de rechazo del injerto.

Scope note: Identification of the major histocompatibility antigens of transplant DONORS and potential recipients, usually by serological tests. Donor and recipient pairs should be of identical ABO blood group, and in addition should be matched as closely as possible for HISTOCOMPATIBILITY ANTIGENS in order to minimize the likelihood of allograft rejection.
