Overview

This book is an edited collection based on a proceeding arraying the most recent research on HLA and the fields of hisompatibility and its medical implications. Since HLA is moving from a major serological technique into oligonucleotide testing, one chapter describes the area of molecular biology. Another chapter is devoted to bone marrow transplantation. While concentrating mainly on the fields of blood transfusion rather than covering every aspect of HLA, one section covers a thorough and intensive set of studies on the antigen frequencies of HLA for Caucasian, Black and Oriental populations. This data can be used for any aspect of study requiring control data for HLA, i.e., disease association studies, paternity testing, and human genetics.

Edited proceedings of the first Red Cross International Histocompatibility Workshop, Beijing, October 1990. The six papers survey both theoretical and functional issues of a closely related group of genes, located on the unfashionable short arm of chromosome 6, which play a major role in regulating immune responses. No index. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
