Panel Reactive Antibody (PRA) Identification Test (Class II)

50+ booked in last 3 days

PRA Test Overview

Panel Reactive Antibody (PRA) Identification by Luminex (Class II) is a laboratory test that utilizes Luminex technology to detect and measure the presence of antibodies in a recipient's blood against specific human leukocyte antigens (HLA) Class II. The PRA test helps assess the level of sensitization in transplant recipients by evaluating their immune response to a panel of Class II 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 higher likelihood of pre-existing antibodies that may lead to immune-mediated complications following transplantation. This information assists 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 optimize transplant outcomes.

Frequently Asked Questions

The PRA Identification test detects the presence of antibodies in a recipient's blood against specific human leukocyte antigens (HLA) Class II.

• To assess the risk of rejection in organ transplant recipients • To identify suitable donors by checking for matching HLA markers for a successful transplant outcome

The PRA Identification test is recommended for • individuals who are undergoing or planning to undergo organ transplantation or • recipients who have previously received a blood transfusion, pregnant women, and patients with a history of multiple pregnancies or previous organ transplants.

Abnormal results from the PRA Identification test indicate a higher likelihood of rejection during organ transplantation.

During the PRA Identification test, a small amount of blood will be drawn from your arm. The sample will then be sent to the laboratory for analysis.

Inform your doctor about any medications you are taking or any medical conditions you have that may affect the test results. Also, tell them if you have any specific requirements.

Other tests that may be ordered alongside the PRA Identification test include HLA subtyping, crossmatch tests, and compatibility testing to further evaluate the compatibility between an organ donor and recipient.

HLA identification test or HLA matching test

Organ transplantation is a surgical procedure where a healthy organ from a donor is transplanted into a recipient's body to replace a damaged or non-functioning organ. It is typically done to treat end-stage organ failure in various organs such as the heart, kidney, liver, or lungs.
