What is it about?

Some class II alleles and one haplotype is associated with presenting autoantibodies in hypersensitivity pneumonitis patients. Interestingly, these alleles have been described as part of the 8.1 ancestral haplotype. Also, associated with autoimmune diseases.

Why is it important?

These alleles and haplotype have been described previously associated with several autoimmune disorders.


Identify genetic sequences characterizing this particular phenotype could contribute to its understanding.
