´╗┐American Society of Histocompatibility and Immunology
The American Society for Histocompatibility and Immunogenetics (ASHI) is a leader in the field of human leukocyte antigen (HLA) typing, and over the last 25 years has expanded its educational scope while remaining true to its founding principles. At the 26th Annual Meeting of the ASHI, plenary sessions spotlighted immunologic aspects of relevance to transplantation; a number of workshop sessions also addressed technical aspects of the field, and abstracts were presented on recent technical and clinical advances. This report focuses on dendritic cells (DCs), natural killer (NK) cells, mechanisms of acute and chronic rejection, tolerance, and emerging technologies of relevance to transplantation.
