Table 5 The frequencies of HLA-DRB1*15, HLA-DRB1*16, HLA-DRB1*03, HLA-DQB1*05, and HLA-DQB1*06 in 202 patients with B leprosy and 478 controls

From: Human leukocyte antigen class I and class II alleles are associated with susceptibility and resistance in borderline leprosy patients from Southeast Brazil
