Specific HLA alleles may be associated with SARS-CoV-2 infection

This study analyzed and proposed the possible association of specific HLA alleles with SARS-CoV-2 infection. Several studies have investigated the association of different HLA alleles with COVID-19. However, most of these studies have shown significant differences or conflicting results regarding clinical relevance between HLA alleles and SARS-CoV-2 infection. Studies have analyzed correlations between specific HLA […]
