The genes encoding human leukocyte antigens (HLA) have shown to be associated with cervical neoplasia. To obtain reliable data on HLA associations with cervical tumors, the study should be performed within a strictly defined cohort. To investigate the population attributable risk of cervical cancer associated with the HLA class II haplotypes DR15 and DQ6 (DQA1*0102 and DQB1*0602), we performed a nested case-control study of 85 women who developed invasive cervical cancer and 120 healthy women… CONTINUE READING
