The matching of donors and renal graft recipients for human leukocyte antigens A, B, and DR has been shown to exert beneficial effects on the outcome of transplantation. Until the advent of polymerase chain reaction amplification-based genotyping, the effect of HLA-DP compatibility on graft survival could not be thoroughly investigated.
