The present report describes the distribution of histocompatibility antigens in 52 patients with Alzheimer's disease. No significant associations were observed between this illness and particular HLA types before or after statistical correction for multiple comparisons. These findings are discussed in terms of the difficulties inherent in the clinical(More)
A computer program initially written by the Milwaukee Blood Bank has been modified to use a new algorithm for the assignment of HLA specificities to antisera. The assignment is based on the reactions of cells with known specificities. Specificities which are present only on cells which do not react are first ruled out. This step is followed by one or more(More)
Erythema multiforme (EM) is a cutaneous reaction pattern which follows numerous infections, drugs, neoplastic and inflammatory disorders in some individuals. We undertook a prospective study of thirty-eight HLA specificities of the -A, -B, and -C series in 16 Caucasian patients with EM and in 140 local Caucasian controls. Seven of 16 patients (44%) with EM(More)
A situation can arise in D typing in which the HLA (A,B,C,D, or DR) specificities of the responders are known and the specificities of the HTC's are unknown. The most powerful and direct method of detecting association between the unknown stimulator (HTC) and any given HLA specificity is by comparing the observed double normalized values (DNV's) of(More)
As HLA testing is becoming a major vehicle for parentage determination with non-excluded, alleged fathers being compared to their racial peers, it is important to ensure that the population data used accurately reflect the genetic profile of the region from which the alleged fathers are drawn. This paper presents data on the HLA profile of Black and White(More)
Increased histocompatibility antigen sharing has been reported in couples experiencing recurrent infertility problems. Mathematical expressions describing the probability distribution of the number of antigens shared by randomly mating couples are derived for a single locus, two linked loci, and multiple independent systems. These theoretical frequencies(More)
The HLA-A, B, and C antigens of 243 individuals from two Polynesian islands, Maiao and Hiva Oa, have been characterized. 328 haplotypes were defined by family analysis. Most frequent antigens were A2, A11, Aw24, A26 , Aw34 ; Bw38, Bw39 , Bw48 , Bw55 , Bw56 , Bw60 ; Cwl, Cw3, and Cw4. Several other antigens were present at low frequency or were present on(More)
