Association of HLA antigens with myasthenia gravis in Chinese on Taiwan.

Abstract

HLA phenotypes were studied in 82 Chinese patients with myasthenia gravis (MG) and 202 healthy controls, using standard microcytotoxicity assay. The patients showed significant increase in HLA-Bw46 (46.3% vs 17.3%, chi 2 = 25.7, p less than 0.001), HLA-DR9 (56.1% vs 15%, chi 2 = 35.7, p less than 0.001) and HLA-DQw3 (89% vs 63.6%, chi 2 = 15.9, p less than… (More)
