The expression of human leukocyte antigen-G (HLA-G) in tumor cells may facilitate the escape of the tumor from immunosurveillance; thus the aim of this study was to evaluate the influence of HLA-G polymorphisms occurrence on nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) susceptibility, severity, and survival. Using the restriction fragment length polymorphism-polymerase(More)
The high prevalence of nasopharyngeal cancer (NPC) in Southern Asia and Mediterranean Northern Africa suggests genetic predisposition among other factors. While Human Leukocyte Antigen (HLA) haplotypes have been conclusively associated with NPC predisposition in Asians, Northern African Maghrebians have been less intensely studied. However, low resolution(More)
Nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC), a cancer with a remarkable geographical and worldwide ethnic distribution, has been strongly associated with human leukocyte antigen (HLA) class I genes. The presence of additional HLA risk factors has been suggested by several reports. In the present study, we analyzed the implication of HLA-E gene polymorphisms in NPC(More)
