Reviews what is known about human leukocyte antigen (HLA) and its role in various diseases. An introductory section summarizes current knowledge on the structure, function, genetics, and evolution of the HLA system. This section clarifies the complex nomenclature and discusses the mechanisms underlying disease associations with HLA alleles. A second section deals with the importance of HLA in the context of different clinical specialties. Individual chapters describe the association between HLA polymorphism and each disease. A final section features material on laboratory practice in tissue typing and histocompatibility. This second edition takes into account advances in research since the first edition (titled HLA and Disease) was published in 1994.Table of Contents: Introduction to the HLA System:P.
