94433-0HLA-DP and DQ and DR (class II) IgG with prozone effect [Identifier] in Serum or Plasma by Flow cytometry (FC)Active

Term Description

Sometimes high titer antibody can be associated with low levels of detection (low mean fluorescence intensity, MFI, for the Luminex HLA bead assay), a phenomenon often referred to as the "prozone" effect. This term is intended to report those antibodies that were not detected at significant level with original sample, but became detectable after dilution or assay treatment. Some laboratories refer to these "prozone antigens observed", meaning those antigens for which the patient's antibody exhibited prozone effect.

Part Descriptions

LP417655-0   HLA-DP & DQ & DR (class II) Ab.IgG with prozone effect
HLA antibodies showing the prozone effect represent antibody specificities against HLA antigens that were not apparent in undiluted patient specimen, but became apparent after dilution. This so called prozone effect has been attributed to a number of putative mechanisms, including complement factor, antibody agglutination or competing IgM. Prozone effect can often be reversed with serum dilution or treatment with heat, EDTA, or DTT. Source: Regenstrief LOINC

LP417655-0   HLA-DP & DQ & DR (class II) Ab.IgG with prozone effect
The major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class I (A, B, and C) and II (DP, DM, DOA, DOB, DQ, and DR) in the human leukocyte antigen (HLA) system contains a large number of genes involved in immune system function in humans. The proteins encoded by some genes form antigens. HLA class I and II antigens are widely distributed on all nucleated cells and carried by platelets.

Antibodies specific to HLA class I and II antigens can be acquired through alloimmunization due to pregnancy, transfusion of blood products, or previous transplants. Alloimmunization can lead to production of antibodies in approximately one third of individuals. The presence of antibodies, specifically IgG, can affect the survival of transplant allografts or transfused platelets in sensitized individuals. Various testing methods are used to detect antibodies to HLA antigens. Source: Regenstrief LOINC
