Hello

I was wondering if you test all of your patients for DQ Alfa/ HLA genes when you do a immune panel workup ? and would this have a affect if you are using donor eggs ?

Yes I do a full HLA screen and yes if there is deemed to be a problem you must look for this even with donor egg as its the sperm matching with the immune system of the mother that is the most critical issue and regardless of donor egg, high matches with a history of immune activation would need treatment.
