Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disease causing chronic inflammation of the joints. Multiple factors, including HLA-DRB1 gene variants, influence the susceptibility to RA. The HLA-DRB1 gene is part of a family of genes called the human leukocyte antigen (HLA) complex. In this study, we compared the inflammatory biomarkers values, including erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) and C-reactive protein (CRP), between patients with RA and healthy control group of females of the Public… Expand
Haematological parameters in patients with rheumatoid arthritis and gene variants HLA-DRB1 * 04 and HLA-DRB1 * 03
In group of RA patients carriers of H LA-DRB1*04 or HLA-DRb1*03 gene variants, the values of HGB and HCT were significantly lower while the valuesof RDW, RDW-SD, MO, BA, MO#, BA#, ESR and CRP were statistically increased from the control group without these variants. Expand
Causal risk and protective factors in rheumatoid arthritis: A genetic update
Although some co-founders of rheumatoid arthritis have been characterized, the direct association with sex-discrepancy, pregnancy, and infections among other factors remains to be better explored. Expand

Association of common polymorphisms in known susceptibility genes with rheumatoid arthritis in a Slovak population using osteoarthritis patients as controls
In the Slovak population, HLA-DRB1 alleles as well as SNPs in STAT4 and PTPN22 genes showed a strong association with RA. Expand
Association of HLA-DR with susceptibility to and clinical expression of rheumatoid arthritis: re-evaluation by means of genomic tissue typing.
DR4 was associated with susceptibility to RA in patients; HLA-DR low-resolution genomic tissue typing did not yield additional information to RF status for the clinical identification of individual patients with a poor prognosis. Expand
HLA‐DRB1 genes and disease severity in rheumatoid arthritis in Turkey
The results suggest that the HLA‐DRB1 alleles, particularly HLA•DRB 1*04 and subtypes, were associated with RA. Expand
Diagnostic performance and predictive value of rheumatoid factor, anti-cyclic-citrullinated peptide antibodies and HLA-DRB1 locus genes in rheumatoid arthritis
It is suggested that anti-CCP2 is superior to RF for the detection of RA and provided predictive information on joint destruction and disease activity. Expand
An association analysis of HLA-DRB1 with systemic lupus erythematosus and rheumatoid arthritis in a Japanese population: effects of *09:01 allele on disease phenotypes.
This work identified HLA-DRB1 alleles associated with SLE and RA in a Japanese population and demonstrated a shared susceptibility of DRB1*09:01 between the diseases as well as its effect on autoantibody production. Expand
HLA haplotype analysis in Finnish patients with rheumatoid arthritis.
Both protection-associated and susceptibility-associated alleles can be found among HLA class II genes, and the results suggest that loci outside DR/DQ may contribute to the pathogenesis of RA. Expand
HLA-DRB1 alleles associated with susceptibility or resistance to rheumatoid arthritis, articular deformities, and disability in Mexican Americans.
HLA-DRB1*08 appears to have a protective influence on RA susceptibility and disease severity in Mexican Americans, and may also be associated with a more rapid development of articular deformities and disability. Expand
Crosslinks Between Human Leukocyte Antigen DRB1*01 and Human Leukocyte Antigen DRB1*13 Allelic Variants and Occurrence of Rheumatoid Arthritis in Patients From Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The most common genotype in RA patients was DRB1-01/DRB1*13, which showed increased frequency and a high relative risk, and may be considered a predisposing factor for the development of RA. Expand
Genome-wide association study meta-analysis identifies seven new rheumatoid arthritis risk loci
Seven new rheumatoid arthritis risk alleles were identified at genome-wide significance (P < 5 × 10−8) in an analysis of all 41,282 samples, and an additional 11 SNPs replicated at P < 0.05, suggesting that most represent genuine rhearatoid arthritisrisk alleles. Expand
