    immunologic identity or similarity. Histocompatibility testing compares the HLA (also called MHC) "self" antigen markers of a tissue donor and recipient to determine whether a transplant is possible; a close match implies that the donor and recipient share the same MHC genes, reducing the chance that the transplant will be rejected. See also major histocompatibility complex.
