HLA-A, B antigens and the ABO group were examined in 184 patients with aplasia of bone marrow and leukaemia and in 373 of their relatives, mostly siblings. A HLA-A, B donor, identical or compatible, was found for 35.87% patients, a HLA-DR identical for 84.21% of 38 patients who had a HLA-A, B identical relative. Bone marrow was transplanted to 16 patients… (More)
In 62 patients with testicular germinative tumours and 301 healthy unrelated subjects, 23 HLA antigens of A and B loci were tested. In the group of 40 seminomas the incidence of HLA-Bw35 antigen and in 22 patients with non-seminomas (embryonal carcinomas, teratocarcinoma and mixed forms) the frequency of HLA-A 10 antigen were significantly higher (27.50 vs.… (More)
In 23 out of 39 patients with various malignancies, treated with hormones (Prednison, Agostiben, Agovirin, separately, or combined; Prednison plus another hormone) modification of HLA antigens was established. Out of 51 patients with hitherto untreated malignancies HLA modification was demonstrated in 12 cases. This variation is statistically significant (P… (More)
Modifications of HLA antigens (transient loss or polyreactivity) were found in thirty-two of fifty-five examined patients with blood diseases (leukaemia, reticulosis, reticulo- and lymphosarcoma, lymphogranuloma, erythroblastoma) and malignant tumours. In two cases of acute myelosis transient alteration of HLA-A 2 antigen in HLA-A 28 was demonstrated. The… (More)
The results concerning the association of HLA antigens with ITP, pernicious anaemia, hemangiomas and Alzheimer's disease are compared with those of other authors and the causes for differences are discussed. The different number of examined patients does not seem to be the main cause of those differences. Selecting of the correct method for statistical… (More)
The 21 HLA-A and -B antigens were typed in 38 patients with the senile form of Alzheimer's disease and 301 healthy individuals. No statistically significant difference was found in the frequency of HLA antigens after correction of P.
