Certain human leukocyte antigens, by presenting conserved immunogenic epitopes for T cell recognition, may, in part, account for the observed differences in human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) susceptibility. To determine whether HLA polymorphism influences HIV-1 susceptibility, a longitudinal cohort of highly HIV-1-exposed female sex workers based(More)
The genes of the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) are amongst the most polymorphic loci known in the human population. The population genetics of the MHC encoded HLA loci of sub-Saharan Africa are of major interest because of their particular genetic diversity. Here we report on the HLA-DR 52- and 51-associated determinants of the DRB1 loci observed(More)
