The Histocompatibility Lab at UAB Medicine

Show: (August 6, 2018)

UAB’s Histocompatibility Lab is one of approximately 200 such laboratories in the United States, and the only one in Alabama. The lab tests and monitors every solid organ, bone marrow and stem cell transplant patient from Children’s of Alabama, the Birmingham VA Medical Center and UAB. The lab performs testing on every recipient after transplant to monitor for rejection. Prior to transplant, the technologists in the lab run pre-transplant risk assessment for patients and donors to test for compatibility and make sure there are no problems with early rejection.

In this fascinating segment, Vera Hauptfeld PhD, and Zhuo Tao MD, discuss the exciting work being done at the Histocompatability Lab at UAB and when to refer to this specialized Lab.
