Abstract

A newly developed, reliable, DNA-based method for typing for alleles of the HLA-C locus has been applied in the context of unrelated, volunteer donors for bone marrow transplantation. Some donors matched for HLA-A, -B, -DR, and -DQ have been found to generate in vitro high frequencies of CTL reactive with the recipient's cells. Here we demonstrate that there is a highly significant correlation of the frequencies of CTL precursors and incompatibility at the HLA-C locus. These data indicate that HLA-C locus incompatibility should be avoided in unrelated donor bone marrow transplantation.
