BACKGROUND The antibody response generated during malaria infections is of particular interest, since the production of specific IgG antibodies is required for acquisition of clinical immunity. However, variations in antibody responses could result from genetic polymorphism of the HLA class II genes. Given the increasing focus on the development of subunit(More)
Human leukocyte antigen (HLA) has been used for several decades as genetic markers for analyzing diversity of gene pool origin, platelet transfusion, tissue transplantation, disease susceptibility or resistance, and forensic and anthropological studies. In the present study, the allele and haplotype frequencies of HLA-A, -B, and -DRB1 were studied in 250(More)
Sarcoidosis is a multisystem granulomatous disorder of unknown etiology. Hereditary etiology has been proposed as a cause of the sarcoidosis, and some Human Leucocyte Antigen (HLA) alleles have been related to the diagnosis or severity of the disease. Löfgren's syndrome has been linked to patients with the DRB1*03 allele, and non-resolving disease has been(More)
BACKGROUND The host immune response is an important indicator of the outcome of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection and disease progression. The aim of this study was to explore cytokine gene polymorphisms as a candidate for susceptibility to persistent HCV infection or HCV spontaneous clearance in a population from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
