Current data reveal that, when matching is very good, there is also very good correlation in living related donor results, particularly in the sibling donor source. When there is slight mismatching, correlation is not as good; however, many patients seem to do well in spite of some mismatch. Correlation in the unrelated cadaver group is not as precise or significant. The current status of tissue typing is still not as precise as it should be, in order for us to rely on it as a selection criterion for renal homotransplantation. However, with rapidly advancing knowledge of antigen groups in the HL-A system and a more refined and simplified method of tissue typing, the significance of the correlation between tissue typing and clinical results of the homotransplant should improve.
