The results of Human Leukocyte Antigen (HLA) antigen testing in transplant patients are not generally used to predict future adverse events. In this study, free-text HLA screening results of transplant patients were analyzed and stored in a database, and the frequencies of patients with adverse events according to HLA allele were extracted. Approximately 25% of patients had HLA alleles associated with serious drug side effects.
