Özet

Genetic susceptibility to insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) has been shown to be associated with MHC in many studies. To extend this data with a population with relatively low IDDM incidence, MHC DRB, DQA, and DQB have been investigated by polymerase chain reaction and sequence specific oligonucleotide probe hybridization (PCR/SSO) in 178 IDDM patients from Turkey and compared to 248 healthy controls. Significant differences are detected between IDDM and control groups in the frequencies of DRB1*0402 DQA1*03 DQB1*0302 (28.1% vs. 5.2%, p < 0.0001, OR: 7.1) and DRB1*0301 DQA1*0501 DQB1*02 (57% vs. 18.1% p < 0.0001, OR: 6.1). Among the negative associations, the most strong ones are with DRB1*1401 DQA1*0101 DQB1*0503 (0.6% vs. 8.9%, p < 0.0001, OR: 0.1), DRB1*1502 DQA1*0103 DQB1*0601 (1.1% vs. 7.7%, p = 0.0023, OR: 0.1), DRB1*1301 DQA1*0103 DQB1*0603 (0.6% vs. 6.9%, p = 0.0039, OR: 0.2) and DRB1*1101 DQA1*0501 DQB1*0301 (3.9% vs. 12.1%, p < 0.0001, OR: 0.2) When the DRB, DQA or DQB genotypes of the susceptible alleles are compared, the most strong susceptibility marker of the disease is found to be DRB1*0301/*04 (31.4% vs. 2.8%, p < 0.0001, OR: 15.8) and among these, heterozygote genotype DRB1*0301/*0401 (4.5%; vs. 0, p = 0.0008, OR: 24.8).
