Abstract


Introduction: Sarcoidosis is a multisystem disorder of unknown etiolgy. Pathologic similarities between SA and tuberculosis (TB) suggest M. tuberculosis antigen(s) as causative agents. It seems likely that in the genetically different predisposed hosts, the same antigen(s) may cause the development of sarcoid or tuberculous immune response.
Aim: The aim of this study was to compare the frequency of occurrence of HLA class II alleles in SA, TB and in the healthy individuals.
Material and methods: To test a difference in haplotypes associated with both diseases, we compared the distribution of DQA1 and DQB1 alleles in 45 SA patients, 62 TB patients and in 143 healthy volunteers, using a PCR-SSP "low (DRB1, DQB1) and high (DQA1) resolution" method.
Results: Our results revealed that DRB1*03, DRB1*11, DQB1*02 i DQA1*0501 in Stage I of SA with Löfgren’s syndrom (Ls) and DRB1*15, DQA1*0102, DQA1*0103 in Stage II of SA were more common, whereas DRB1*16, DRB1*04, DRB1*08, DQB1*02, DQB1*03, DQB1*05, DQA1*0102, DQA1*0301 in Ls and DQB1*02, DQB1*03, DQB1*05, DQA1*0102, DQA1*0301 in Stage II were less common than in the controls but after Bonferroni correction occurrence of DRB1*04, DQB1*02, DQB1*03, DQB1*05 and DQA1*0102, DQA1*0301, DQA1*0501 was significantly differ. In TB group, DRB1*16, DRB1*14, DQB1*05 i DQA1*0303 were more frequent and DRB1*11, DQB1*02, DQA1*0201, DQA1*0505 less frequently present as compared to the controls, but after correction DRB1*16, DQB1*02, DQB1*05, DQA1*0303, DQA1*0505 were significantly different. In SA, DRB1*11, DQB1*02 i DQA1*0201, DQA1*0501, DQA1*0505 in Ls and DRB1*15, DRB1*11, DQA1*0102 in Stage II were more common and DRB1*16, DRB1*04, DRB1*14, DQB1*03, DQB1*05, DQB1*06, DQA1*0301, DQA1*0302, DQA1*0303 in Ls and Stage II were less frequent than in the TB group. DQB1*02, DQA1*0501 (Ls) and DRB1*15 (Stage II) were more frequently present in SA than in TB, even after Bonferroni correction.
Conclusions: In summary, we identified associations of HLA class II alleles in SA and TB with expression pattern specific and different for each group. In most cases, in SA patients frequency of HLA class II alleles occurrence is opposite to the frequency in TB patients.
