Association between HLA-DRB1 alleles and tuberculosis: a meta-analysis
“Association between HLA-DRB1 alleles and tuberculosis: a meta-analysis”, vol. 14, pp. 15859-15868, 2015.,
Although a number of studies have reported that human leukocyte antigen (HLA)-DRB1 alleles may be correlated with tuberculosis (TB), most were based on small samples or inconsistent and unclear results. Here, we present a meta-analysis to investigate the relationship between HLA-DRB1 alleles and TB susceptibility. We gathered relevant information from published studies on the association between HLA‑DRB1 alleles and TB susceptibility through a systematic research. Data from eligible fifteen studies were included in the meta-analyses.
