HLA Typing in Tanzania
The major histocompatibility complex, a group of genes, codes for proteins found on cell surfaces. For the immune system to identify foreign substances, these proteins are necessary. Human Leukocyte Antigen is what the MHC complex is known as in humans (HLA). HLA information has been and continues to be crucial for matching donors and recipients for organ and bone marrow transplants. The HLA Typing cost in Tanzania is $350. Tanzania has facilities to get HLA Typing tests in Mobile Van clinics, which is an initiation by the government to get maximum HLA Typing tests done. This helps the Tanzanian Hospital find matched HLA typing easily and with no waiting time.
