The role of HLA match in donor-recipient selection has been studied in 271 patients who received cadaver transplants during a 10-year period. This series included 36 four-antigen matches, 181 three-antigen matches and 54 two-antigen matches. Our results support the concept that bettor results can be expected when better matched kidneys are utilized for transplantation.
