The relationship between the incidence of graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) and human leukocyte antigens (HLA) was analyzed in HLA-identical sibling bone marrow transplantation donor/recipient pairs from the two major populations in Israel: Jewish and Arabic. HLA phenotypes were significantly different, in both groups, between patients and healthy controls. Among Jews, a higher incidence of GVHD was found with A28, CW3, CW6 of class I and DR7, DQ2 of class II; a lower incidence was found with A2… CONTINUE READING
