HLA

Human leukocyte antigen complex Immunology A system of genes unique to a person and statistically shared with 1 in 4 siblings; HLA regions are within the major histocompatibility complex–MHC, on the short arm of chromosome 6, 32 centimorgans from the centromere, divided into 3 classes

HLA (human leuckocyte antigen)

A group of protein molecules located on bone marrow cells that can provoke an immune response. A donor's and a recipient's HLA types should match as closely as possible to prevent the recipient's immune system from attacking the donor's marrow as a foreign material that does not belong in the body.
