Transplantation has been a major breakthrough in medicine during the 20th Century. It has been made possible conceptually due to the discovery of the Major Histocompatibility Complex (MHC), its genetic polymorphism and functionality. Major advances in the management of immunosuppressive drugs allowed the clinical development of these therapies in medicine. However, allogenicity drives. Immunology is a branch of biology that covers the study of immune systems in all organisms. Immunology charts, measures, and contextualizes the physiological functioning of the immune system in states of both health and diseases; malfunctions of the immune system in immunological disorders (such as autoimmune diseases, hypersensitivities, immune deficiency, and transplant rejection); and the Significant diseases: Autoimmune disease, .

Allergy, Immunology & Transplantation. The immune system is composed of networks of specialized cells and organs that act together to defend the body against disease-causing organisms such as viruses, bacteria, parasites, and fungi.
However, abnormal immune responses also can cause disease as well as the rejection of transplanted organs. Advances in transplantation immunology have allowed the exponential growth of organ and tissue transplantation in medicine over the last three decades.
Newer immunosuppressive agents have allowed the control of solid organ and tissue rejection and of graft-versus-host disease even when HLA incompatibility is present. For the treatment of Cited by: Core Curriculum in Nephrology Transplant Immunology and Immunosuppression: Core Curriculum Donald E.
