Are you familiar with the concept of epitope matching in solid organ transplantation? More specifically, are you familiar with PIRCHE? PIRCHE stands for Predicted Indirectly Recognizable HLA Epitopes and models the indirect pathway of T-cell mediated allorecognition of mismatched HLA.

In this webinar Dr Eric Spierings, Associate Professor, inventor of the PIRCHE concept, and Matthias Niemann, PIRCHE Director of Technology, will introduce the epitope matching landscape, show how the PIRCHE algorithm integrates into the wider context of existing epitope matching models, and explain what makes it different from other models with which you may already be familiar.

To give you a practical insight into how PIRCHE matching is applied on a case-by-case basis in the solid organ transplantation setting, they will present a case study showing how PIRCHE matching may be applied in kidney transplantation. This session will be concluded with some recent insights into PIRCHE epitope matching.

We look forward to seeing you there and introducing you to the wonderful world of PIRCHE!
