Many immune responses are controlled by genes of the major histocompatibility complex (MHC). In humans these include the loci encoding the HLA-A,-B,-C,-DR,-DQ and-DP antigens, and many diseases have been linked with these. However, little information is available about any connection between malignant tumors and HLA. In this study the possible association of HLA-A,-B,-C and-DR specificities with susceptibilitities to malignant glioma was investigated in 42 patients with malignant glioma and 42… CONTINUE READING
