If a person is going to use Donor Embryos, do DQ Alpha/HLA matches need to be treated if the embryo is not theirs? Thank you.

If the problem is solely an HLA matching issue, then no , it does not need to be treated. But if there is evidence of an inherent inflammatory (immune) condition in the recipient of the embryo , then yes that would need treatment.
