Hla B51 Test Overview

HLA B51 Locus in blood refers to a specific genetic marker associated with autoimmune conditions, such as Behçet's disease. Testing for HLA B51 helps identify genetic predispositions and aids in disease diagnosis and management. By identifying the HLA-B51 status of both parties, medical professionals can increase the likelihood of finding a compatible donor with closely matching HLA antigens, thus reducing the risk of organ rejection.

Frequently Asked Questions

This test detects the presence of specific genes on the HLA B51 Locus in your blood.

  • To assess compatibility for organ and tissue transplants. Identifying a donor with a closely matching HLA-B51 status reduces the risk of organ rejection.
  • To determine the risk of certain autoimmune diseases. A positive HLA-B51 test result indicates an increased predisposition towards Behçet's disease.

This test is recommended for individuals who require:

  • Organ or tissue transplantation
  • Evaluation for certain autoimmune diseases like Behçet's disease

Abnormal results may suggest a decreased likelihood of organ or tissue transplant compatibility. Presence of specific gene variants may indicate a higher risk for certain autoimmune diseases or drug reactions. Abnormal results do not provide a definitive diagnosis and should be discussed with your doctor for further evaluation.

During this test:

  • A sample of your blood will be collected using a needle.
  • The sample will be sent to the laboratory for analysis.
  • The analysis will involve identifying specific genes on the HLA B51 Locus using PCR-SSOP (Luminex) method.
  • Results will be reported on the same day, usually by 6 pm.

Before the test:

  • No specific preparations are required.
  • Inform your doctor about any medications you are taking.
  • Ensure you provide necessary documents, including the requisition form, clinical history, and clinician number.
  • HLA Typing for other loci
  • Cross-matching for organ transplantation
  • Antibody screening for detecting potential risks in transplantation
