HLA-DRB1 alleles in Egyptian rheumatoid arthritis patients: Relations to anti-cyclic citrullinated peptide antibodies, disease activity and severity
Human leukocyte antigen HLA-DRB1 alleles encoding a common amino acid sequence called shared epitope in the third hypervariable region of DRB1 molecule have been identified as risk alleles for rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Aim of the work: The aim was to study HLA-DRB1 01, 04 and 10 alleles in Egyptian RA patients and determine their relation with anticyclic citrullinated peptide (anti-CCP) antibody level, disease activity, clinical and radiological severity. Patients and methods: The studydoi:10.1016/j.ejr.2016.03.007 fatcat:eu2i342kynb5lemailhmb2j63i
