HLA-DPB1-COL11A2 and three additional xMHC loci are independently associated with RA in a UK cohort

Abstract

The aim of this study was to investigate the complex association pattern of the extended major histocompatibility complex (xMHC) region with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) susceptibility to identify effects independent of HLA-DRB1. A total of 1804 RA cases and 1474 controls were included. High-resolution HLA-DRB1 typing was performed. Subjects were genotyped for… (More)
