Abstract:

This laboratory produced numerous advances in the understanding of HLA-D region immunogenetics. A number of new HLA-D specificities has been identified and our understanding of the interaction of HLA-D and HLA-DR has been furthered. Primed lymphocyte typing and methods of lymphocyte cloning are being developed. A new method of analyzing homozygous typing cell data was developed along with additional computer techniques. The effect of interferon on the immune system is being studied as it relates to the major histocompatibility complex mechanisms.
