Human leucocyte antigen and insulin dependent diabetes mellitus.J Assoc Physicians India. 1991 Jul; 39(7):540-3.JA
HLA typing was done in 25 cases of insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) and compared with 60 healthy controls. There was a significantly increased frequency of HLA B-8, HLA B-12 and HLA DR-3 in IDDMO. The odds ratio (relative risk) of developing IDDM for HLA B-8 was 4.42 (p less than 0.10), for HLA B-12 was 3.56 (p less than 0.10) and for HLA DR3 9.75 (p less than 0.001). There was no correlation of HLA specificity with complications of diabetes.
