INTRODUCTION Despite engraftment and function of graft after hematopoietic stem cell transplantation severe immune suppression is a characteristics of early posttransplant period. Primary parameters contributing to posttransplant immuno-incompetence include: lack of sustained transfer of donor antigen specific immunity, recapitulation of immunological(More)
INTRODUCTION Hepatitis E virus (HEV) infection is rarely reported in industrialized countries, but recent studies have revealed quite variable seroprevalence rates among European populations, including blood donors. In Serbia, very limited data about HEV seroprevalence are available. This study aimed to determine the prevalence of anti-HEV IgG antibodies(More)
INTRODUCTION One of the most fascinating areas of research within the field of histocompatibility at present time concerns an observation that a major human histocompatibility system, HLA, is deeply involved in development of a great number of diseases. MATERIALS AND METHODS HLA class I antigens were investigated in 225 cases with various kinds of(More)
INTRODUCTION Natural Killer cells (NK cells) represent the subset of peripheral lymphocytes that play critical role in the innate immune response to virus-infected and tumor transformed cells. Lysis of NK sensitived target cells could be mediated independently of antigen stimulation, and unlike cytotoxic T-lymphocytes, they do not require peptide(More)
The HLA (Human Leucocyte Antigens) class I and class II polymorphism in a sample population of 250 Vojvodinians using standard microlymphocytotoxicity test was investigated. The antigens with the highest frequencies were: HLA-A2 (50.4%), A1 (24.1%) and A3 (22.7%); B35 (22.7%), B51(5) (16.9%) and B18 (15.6%); DR11 (5) (34.5%), DR7 (20.0%) and DR3 (19.3%);(More)
BACKGROUND Killer cell immunoglobulin-like receptors (KIRs) are glycoproteins regulating the response of natural killer (NK) cells and a few sub-sets of T-cells. The KIR gene frequencies and genotype content vary considerably among different ethnic groups. AIM The aim of this study was to analyse KIR gene polymorphism in the population of Vojvodina and to(More)
There are numerous studies showing the role of human leukocyte antigens (HLAs) related with susceptibility or resistance to certain diseases. The aim of this study was to determine the association of HLA-B27 with ankylosing spondylitis (AS), polyarthralgia, lumboishialgia, acute anterior uveitis (AAU), psoriatic arthritis (PA), synovitis coxae and(More)
INTRODUCTION The distribution of HLA genes and haplotypes in the normal population is of considerable importance in disease susceptability studies, population and genetic studies and tissue and organ transplantation. The HLA phenotype frequencies can be used for the estimation of the probability of finding phenotypically identical unrelated volunteer bone(More)
