Association of human leukocyte antigens-DQB2/DPA1/DPB1 polymorphism and pulmonary tuberculosis in the Chinese Uygur population.

ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND:Tuberculosis (TB) is the second-leading cause of death globally. Genetic polymorphisms in human leukocyte antigens (HLA)-DQB2, HLA-DPA1, and HLA-DPB1 may partly explain individual differences in TB susceptibility. METHODS:We performed a hospital-based case-control study to assess the genetic influence of single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the HLA (HLA-DPA, HLA-DPB, and HLA-DQB) on the development of TB. There were 248 TB-infected cases and 340 healthy controls in this study. RESULTS:The HLA-DQB2 rs7453920 genotype GG was applied as the reference group, the GA genotype was related to a considerably magnified risk of TB (GA vs. GG: adjusted OR = 1.547, 95% CI = 1.039-2.304, p = 0.032). Nevertheless, the other two SNPs were not associated with TB risk. Stratified analyses suggested that tobacco was associated with an increased risk of TB in HLA-DQB2 rs7453920 G>A. CONCLUSION:These results suggested that the functional HLA-DQB2 rs7453920 G>A polymorphism may contribute to the genetic susceptibility to TB. Nevertheless, the results were based on a limited sample size, and larger well-designed studies are expected to confirm these preliminary findings.
