Presentation title: A Proposed Update for the Definition of HLA Serologic Specificities Considering Structural Features that Determine Serologic Epitopes

Presentation description: This User Group Meeting presentation shared how an updated nomenclature system could enable any HLA allele to be delineated into newly designated serotypes.

 

Recorded at: Our 2022 User Group Meeting: Evolving Perspectives on Epitopes: Debating the
Emerging Research

Many aspects of eplet binding remain a mystery. Gaining a deeper grasp of how this mechanism works may require varied perspectives and cooperative effort from the transplant diagnostics community. At our User Group Meeting 2022, a global panel of speakers shared data and research from recent studies, including current collaborations, that are expanding our knowledge of eplet binding. They also deliberated whether an improved understanding of epitopes could enhance compatibility predictions.
