205 Possible Causes for HLA-B8

  • Adrenal Insufficiency

    Genetic risk None HLA -B8, -DR3, and -DR4 genes confer risk 2.[aafp.org]

  • Sjogren's Syndrome

    These "histocompatibility antigens" may include HLA-B8 and HLA-DR3.[resources.lupus.org] […] and HLA-B8 are generally found in Caucasian patients, while HLA-DR5 is related to Greek and Israeli patients. [60] Multiple genome-wide association scans may be conducted[en.wikipedia.org] In white persons, for instance, the condition is linked to human leukocyte antigen (HLA)–DR3, HLA-DQ2, and HLA-B8, [10] whereas the linkage is to HLA-DRB1*15 in Spanish persons[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis

    Thus, "A HLA association in PSC was first identified for HLA-B8 (i.e. HLA-B*0801) and DR3 (i.e. DRB1*0301)[24,50].[psc-literature.org] […] the portal circulation and from exposure to toxic bile acids has been postulated. [14] A genetic predisposition has been suggested because of an increased prevalence of HLA-B8[emedicine.medscape.com] HLA-B8, HLA-DR3, and HLA-Drw52a alleles have an increased prevalence in patients with PSC, suggesting a genetic predisposition.[symptoma.com]

  • Myasthenia Gravis

    The early peak shows a female predominance, approximately 3:1, and an association with HLA-B8, HLA-DR3, and HLA-DR1, the latter being more specific for ocular MG.[eyewiki.aao.org] This suggests an association of MG with HLA B8 and DR3. In terms of underlying genetic abnormalities, work is ongoing [ 8 ] .[patient.info] In people 40 there is a higher incidence of HLA A1, B8, and DRW3 in patients with MG, and in those 40 there is a correlation with HLA A3, B7, and DRW2.[medicine.yale.edu]

  • Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

    Factors leading to SLE include: Genetic predisposition, incuding haplotype HLA-B8, -DR 3 Exposure to sunlight Viral infection , particularly Epstein-Barr virus Hormones Toxins[dermnetnz.org] ) reveal that HLA-A1, HLA-B8, and HLA-DR3 are more common in persons with SLE than in the general population.[emedicine.medscape.com] […] however, it was determined that these loci had a lower significance level and a lower contribution to individual risk for SLE. [ 31 ] Studies of human leukocyte antigens (HLAs[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Chronic Active Hepatitis B

    The apparent predisposition of individuals with HLA-B8 and DR3 haplotypes to develop IACAH suggests that genetically conditioned abnormalities may have a role in pathogenesis[hepatitiscentral.com]

  • Herpes Gestationis

    In herpes gestationis, immunofluorescence studies were consistently positive, there was a high frequency of HLA-B8 and an association with autoimmune thyrotoxicosis.[thedoctorsdoctor.com] HLA-A1, B8, DR3 is known to be in linkage disequilibrium with a deletion of C4A (the C4 null allele or C4QO).[dermaamin.com] Immunogenetic studies reveal an increase in HLA antigens DR3 or DR4, and curiously, nearly 50 percent of patients have the simultaneous presence of both. 21 The extended haplotype[dermaamin.com]

  • Autoimmune Hepatitis

    , HLA-B8, HLA-DR3, HLA-DR4) A predominance of T lymphocytes and plasma cells in liver histologic lesions Complex in vitro defects in cellular immunity and immunoregulatory[merckmanuals.com] AIH is associated with the complement allele C4AQO and with the HLA haplotypes B8, B14, DR3, DR4, and Dw3.[patient.info] […] antinuclear antibodies, anti–smooth muscle antibodies, liver-kidney microsomal antibodies) An association with histocompatibility haplotypes common in autoimmune disorders (eg, HLA-B1[merckmanuals.com]
