The distribution of organs for renal transplant depends on HLA matching between donor and recipient. This study aimed to characterize the allele and haplotype frequencies of HLA-A, -B, and -DRB1 in a cohort of renal transplant candidates populations in the region of Sao José do Rio Preto (State of São Paulo), to compare the allele frequencies between Caucasian and Black in that region, as well as to compare these frequencies with different Brazilian populations reported. The HLA-A, -B, and -DRB1 allele and haplotypes frequencies were analyzed in a sample of 2. Read More
