Synopsis: 
A cross-sectional study in which DNA HLA typing methods were used to investigate the associations between HLA and class II alleles and the presence of systemic lupus erythematosus and antinuclear antibodies (ANA) in Jamaicans. The HLA associations with ANA were similar to those found in other ethnic groups, but no significant positive HLA association with SLE was found.

ABSTRACT

Objective: The relationship between human leukocyte antigens class II (HLA) and antinuclear antibodies
was investigated in Jamaican patients with Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE).
