Test Code CPRA PANEL REACTIVE ANTIBODY, CALCULATED

Important Note

The cPRA represents the percentage of the general population to which a potential organ recipient (kidney or pancreas), has HLA antibodies, and therefore, would not be potential donors for this patient.

It is calculated by both the number of HLA antibodies and the frequency each HLA antigen is found in the population for each of the antibodies. The higher the number (percentage), the more difficult it is to find a donor with HLA antigens that the recipient does not have antibodies to. 

This test must be ordered in conjunction with Kidney Patient PRA Screening.
