Anyone know anything about HLA matching???

I am hoping someone has experience with HLA matching... my father has aml and has a few possible donors but they are all 9/10. Stem Cell Transplant should be happening in Seattle in about 6 weeks.

Seems there is a HLA-C allele mismatch but im not sure what this means.

The little research i've done seems to say HLA-C antigen mismatches are associated with an unfavorable outcome, but HLA-C Allele mismatches don't really have much affect...

i guess im just looking for someone that knows more about this.. and can help explain the difference... or confirm if the information i've found is correct?

Anyone have experience with a 9/10 match for stem cell transplant?

Thanks to anyone taking the time to read....
