Latest HLA-A Stories
A study involving over 5,000 people living with the joint disorder ankylosing spondylitis has identified a series of genetic variants associated with increased susceptibility to the condition as well as providing new clues to how the condition may be treated in the future.
Women who have multiple sclerosis (MS) are more likely to have a gene associated with multiple sclerosis than men with the disease and it is this gene region where environment interacts with the genetics.
The future of organ transplantation could include microscopic beads that create "designer" immune cells to help patients tolerate their new organ, Medical College of Georgia researchers say.
People with the ability to stave off AIDS for years after initial infection by HIV have been called "long-term non-progressors" or "elite controllers."

HLA-B*5701 biomarker indicates risk for severe adverse reactions to Abacavir / Experts expect more tests for similar markers in the future Venlo, The Netherlands - August 19, 2008 - QIAGEN (Nasdaq: QGEN; Frankfurt Prime Standard: QIA) today announced that it has introduced a new molecular diagnostic test to type the HLA-B*5701 allele, a genetic variation in the Human Leucocyte Antigen (HLA) system.
The great physical diversity that evolution has forged in human beings is in evidence wherever we look, but the genes exhibiting the greatest diversity at the DNA level happen to function in a wholly invisible process: immunity.
