HLA-DRB1*04 subtypes are associated with increased inflammatory activity in early rheumatoid arthritis.

Abstract

The sequence polymorphism of HLA-DRB1 molecules in 84 rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients with early RA has been analysed to evaluate whether particular HLA-DR alleles influence disease progression in the early stage of the disease. Clinical data were analysed by grouping the patients according to disease-associated haplotype combinations (DRB1*04,04/DRB1*04… (More)
