Kidney for Life

The Kidney for Life initiative utilizes high resolution tissue typing to assess the epitope mismatch between a donor and a recipient, allowing transplant centers to better select donors for specific recipients.

Research indicates that epitope mismatch risk assessment is a more accurate matching technology than traditional antigen matching. Research also indicates that a better genetic match lowers the probability of graft failure and creates an opportunity to safely reduce immunosuppression.
