We studied HLA DQB1 allele frequencies and the relative risk (RR) of various genotypes in 72 type 1 diabetic patients and 40 control individuals in Uruguay. This is a tri-racial (Caucasian, Black and Indo-American) mixed population. The products of the polymerase chain reaction amplifications were hybridized with oligonucleotides by allele-specific(More)
Susceptibility to the type 1 diabetes is genetically controlled and there is an increased risk associated with the presence of some specific alleles of the human leukocyte antigens class II loci (DQA1 and DQB1 genes). The purpose of this study is to evaluate the association between type 1 diabetes and HLA DQ alleles using case-parents trios in the admixed(More)
