Anyone routinely testing donors and recipients for DP?

Not yet, but plan to campaign with the OPO for routine DP on all deceased donors, and with tplt progs for LD’s where the patient has DP antibodies which we now routinely identify with S.A. testing.

I would also be very interested in knowing if others are typing now, or plan to in the near future.

Our lab has been screening transplant candidates for DP antibodies for several years, and when a candidate with DP antibodies is offered a kidney, we DP type the deceased donor. The results are available about the same time as the final crossmatch.

Update:  we have been prospectively DP-typing all our deceased donors since January 2011.
