In addition, high cost of performing HLA matching using Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) and NGS devices is challenging the growth of the transplant diagnostics market in developing countries.
- US-based immunotherapies developer Cellerant Therapeutics, Inc has presented additional results from its randomised controlled Phase 2 clinical trial of romyelocel-L (human myeloid progenitor cells, formerly referred to as CLT-008), an off-the-shelf cell therapy which does not require HLA matching intended to prevent bacterial and fungal infections during neutropenia, the company said.
"We are delighted with these positive clinical findings that confirm our HLA Matching Hypothesis in the Phase I/IIa trial in advanced breast cancer showing significant tumor shrinkage without serious side effects.
Better HLA matching as revealed only by ultra-high resolution HLA typing results in superior overall survival.
According to the company, Romyelocel-L is its universal, off-the-shelf cell therapy that does not require HLA matching. Neutropenia is a major side effect of myelosuppressive chemotherapies including induction therapy and leaves patients at high risk of serious, often life-threatening infections.
The importance of HLA matching and the presence of pretransplant anti-HLA antibodies, on the outcome of renal transplantation, have been studied [5, 6].
In hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT), good clinical outcomes are associated with high-resolution HLA matching [12, 13], with the number of mismatches correlating with the risk of rejection and/or graft versus host disease (GVHD) [14-16].
With respect to allogenic transplant medicine it is important to review HLA matching, and the differences between related versus unrelated stem cell donors.
HLA matching test has an important clinical impact on kidney transplantation; mainly in the selection of suitable recipients for a donor as well as in the graft outcome.
Inaccurate typing could lead to inadequate HLA matching between donors and recipients, which could ultimately increase the chances of graft rejection, GVHD and mortality.
PGD of single-gene disorders combined with HLA matching has emerged as a tool for couples at risk of transmitting a genetic disease to select unaffected embryos of an HLA tissue type compatible with that of an existing affected child (8).
Less stringent HLA matching requirements with easy access to rare haplotypes The main disadvantages however include:
