Özet

Aim : Chronic hepatitis B (CHB) is a global health problem. Recent genome-wide association studies (GWAS) exposed significant association between the human leukocyte antigen (HLA) class II region, including both DP and DQ loci, and chronic hepatitis B. Previous research also indicated the involvement of adaptive immune system in Hepatitis B seroconversion. The aim of this study is to investigate possible polymorphisms in the HLA-DP locus that can contribute to immune response to Hepatitis B virus (HBV).
