HLA policy compliance instructions for OPOs and thoracic transplant centers

Policy, Essential Information for Thoracic offers, contains a list of donor information that the Host OPO or donor center must provide to the recipient center with each thoracic organ offer. In June 2011 the OPTN/UNOS Board of Directors voted to add the following statement to that list: Human leukocyte antigen (HLA) type if requested by the transplant center.

OPOs and thoracic transplant programs should read this document for instructions on how to comply with the policy, which is in effect.
