It seems likely that in the genetically different predisposed hosts, the same antigen(s) may cause the development of sarcoid or tuberculous immune response. AIM The aim of this study was to compare the frequency of occurrence of HLA class II alleles in SA, TB and in the healthy individuals. MATERIAL AND… CONTINUE READING
