HLA and cytokine gene polymorphisms are independently associated with responses to hepatitis B vaccination.

Abstract

Variable immune responses to hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection and recombinant HBV vaccines have been associated with polymorphisms in several genes within the human leukocyte antigen (HLA) complex. Analyses of polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based genotyping data from 164 North American adolescents vaccinated with recombinant HBV products confirmed that… (More)
