Pediatric kidney transplantation part 9

Children

 

MEDICAL TESTS

Blood tests

These include tests to identify your child’s:

  • Blood group (ABO typing)
  • Levels of anti-human leukocyte antigen (HLA) antibodies and how strong they are. HLA antibodies are antibodies that your child has in their body that may attack someone else’s kidney. This testing helps the transplant team determine if your child has a higher risk of rejection. It also helps predict if your child might have to wait longer for a donor kidney because having these antibodies may make it harder to find a suitable matching donor
