Abstract

Human leukocyte antigen (HLA) genes are candidates for susceptibility to insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM). The association of IDDM with particular DR and DQ alleles has been reported in all populations studied, but its association with HLA-DP alleles has been controversial. To address this question we analyzed 19 DPB1 and 2 DPA1 alleles and their… (More)
