OBJECTIVES The association of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) with the human leucocyte antigen (HLA) region is well known. In this study, we analysed the involvement of the HLA region in susceptibility for SLE in a stable founder, Caucasian population of SLE patients. METHODS We performed an extensive screen of the entire HLA region on 103 SLE patients and family-based controls. Both single locus association analysis and haplotype sharing analysis were performed. The Additional Disease… CONTINUE READING
