ScholarBank@NUS Repository. https://doi.org/10.1038/bjc.1985.52||Abstract:||HLA associations were observed in unrelated Malay patients with nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC). HLA-B18 was observed in 18/45 (40%) Malay NPC patients compared to 22/167 (13%) Malay normals (P = 0.0027, RR = 4.4). The frequency of HLA-B17, one of the antigens associated with Chinese NPC, was also increased among Malay NPC (13/45 29%) compared to controls (18/167 11%; P = 0.003, Pc = 0.07 RR = 3.4). Similar to the findings among Chinese NPC, the frequency of B17 was higher in early onset (≤30 years) Malay NPC resulting in a higher relative risk (RR = 5.0).||Source Title:||British Journal of Cancer||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/133326||ISSN:||00070920||DOI:||10.1038/bjc.1985.52|
