Panel Reactive Antibody (PRA) Identification By Luminex (Class I)

50+ booked in last 3 days


Panel Reactive Antibody (PRA) Identification by Luminex (Class I) is a test that uses Luminex technology to identify and measure the presence of antibodies in a recipient's blood against specific human leukocyte antigens (HLA) Class I. The PRA test helps assess the level of sensitization in transplant recipients by evaluating their immune response to a panel of Class I HLA antigens. By analyzing the fluorescence patterns generated by antibody-antigen interactions, the test provides valuable information about the compatibility between the recipient and potential organ or tissue donors. Higher PRA levels indicate a greater likelihood of pre-existing antibodies that may lead to immune-mediated complications following transplantation. This information aids transplant teams in making informed decisions regarding donor selection, cross-matching, and the development of personalized immunosuppressive strategies to minimize the risk of rejection and improve transplant outcomes.

Frequently Asked Questions

The PRA Identification Test measures the presence of antibodies in a recipient's blood against specific human leukocyte antigens (HLA) Class I.

• To assess compatibility between a transplant recipient and a potential donor • To reduce the risk of rejection after organ transplantation • To guide treatment decisions for individuals requiring organ transplants • To evaluate the effectiveness of immunosuppressive therapy

This test is recommended for individuals who • are candidates for organ transplantation, such as kidney or liver transplant, • have had previous organ transplants and require ongoing monitoring, • require adjustments to immunosuppressive medication, or • are involved in living donor programs to ensure compatibility.

Abnormal results may indicate a higher risk of organ rejection or a lower chance of finding a compatible donor.

A blood sample will be collected from your arm. The sample will be sent to the laboratory for analysis.

• Inform your doctor about any medications or supplements you are taking. Also, tell them if you have any specific requirements. • Follow any additional instructions provided by your healthcare provider regarding discontinuation of immunosuppressive medication before the test.

Crossmatching: This test determines if a potential donor's organ is compatible with the recipient's immune system. HLA Typing: It identifies the specific HLA antigens present in an individual's blood to assess compatibility for transplantation.

Organ transplant rejection occurs when the recipient's immune system recognises the transplanted organ as foreign and attacks it. Rejection can lead to organ failure.
