Meeting schedule:

  1. Changes and recommendations in EPT for Quantitative examination of cell chimerism
  2. Changes and recommendations in EPT for Detection of HLA alleles associated with diseases
  3. Conclusion

Meeting progress:

1. Changes: Determination of reference allele as a non-mandatory part. In the electronic result form will be set a selection of the interpretation of the results (predominance of donor genotype / recipient genotype, detection only donor genotype / recipient genotype, and specific percentage odf recipient genotype) to prevent interpretation problems. In the certificate, the results in each category will be newly marked (excellent, good, acceptable, critical, under the laboratory limit).
Recommendation: no recommendation.

2. Evaluation of results of EPT participants for HLA association with diseases without changes and recommendations.

3. All the EFI terms and recommendations of the steering committee addressed at the meeting in 2017 were fulfilled and their realization will continue, beyond the changes described above, in this year's EPT round. The probable date for a subsequent meeting will be at the EWIC 2019 conference in Zagreb.
