OBJECTIVE Addison's disease is an organ-specific autoimmune disorder with a polygenic background. The aim of the study was to identify non-class II human leukocyte antigen (HLA) susceptibility genes for Addison's disease. DESIGN AND METHODS Addison's disease patients from three European populations were analysed for selected HLA-DR-DQ alleles and for 11 microsatellite markers covering approximately 4 Mb over the HLA region. Subjects were 69 patients with Addison's disease from Estonia (24… CONTINUE READING
