The firm also has an early-access program for a new amplification strategy that combines 11 HLA genes for typing.

In a retrospective analysis, UK researchers found that long-read sequencing of HLA genes in stem cell transplantation donors and recipients led to better outcomes.

Japanese researchers developed a catalog of HLA alleles that they used to perform a phenome-wide association study of the MHC and about a hundred phenotypes.

The index's 13 percent gain was below the 39 percent surge of 2017 but occurred despite the poor performance of index stocks in December.
