Institute of Traslational Pharmacology (IFT)


The IFT-Unit of Rome S. Camillo Hospital (IFT-SCH) cooperates at the clinical activity of the Regional Transplant Centre - Lazio, Tissue Typing and Transplant Immunology Laboratory. The work was mainly addressed to: i) immunological evaluation of patients on the waiting list for organ transplantation and to post-transplant monitoring of humoral alloreactivity to transplant; ii) assessing the alloreactivity of donor-recipient pairs, as part of the National Crossover Program for living kidney pairs donation; iii) assessing the HLA typing at high resolution level of adult donors and cord blood units, for the National Program of hematopoietic stem cells transplantation from unrelated donors. The Laboratory has the Accreditations by the American Society of Histocompatibility and Immunogenetics (ASHI n. 11-9-IT-03-1) and by the European Federation for Immunogenetics (EFI n. 07-IT-025.975).
The Laboratory of Neurogenetics at IFT-ARTOV has EMQN (European quality control organization for genetic testing) Accreditation for Spinocerebellar Ataxias (SCAs), Huntington Disease (HD) and Friedreich Ataxia (FA). The lab is also reported in ORPHANET and GENETEST portals for rare diseases. DNA referred by neurologists or Neurological centers are tested also for the following molecular diagnoses: HD-like, Episodic Ataxias, , Benign Hereditary Chorea and CADASIL (Cerebral Autosomal Dominant Arteriopathy with Subcortical Infarcts and Leukoencephalopaty).
