Abstract: Seventy-five unrelated Chinese SLE patients were HLA typed and subdivided into mild and severe disease The HLA-B13 was associated with mild disease Fourteen of 30 (46.7%) mild disease patients had B13 compared to 63/330 (19.1%) normal subjects (p < 0 0005, corrected p < 0 013, RR = 3 7) The HLA-B17 on the other hand was observed in 29% of 45 severe disease patients compared to 13 9% of 330 normal subjects (p < 0 01, RR = 2.5). The frequency of HLA-B17 in 11 patients who died was even higher (45 5%). © 1981.
