HLA Class II DR-DQ and Increased Risk of Cervical Cancer among Senegalese Women

HLA Class II DR-DQ and Increased Risk of Cervical Cancer among Senegalese Women To examine Senegalese women to confirm and extend associations between HLA class II types and cervical cancer previously observed among African-American, Caucasian, Hispanic, and Japanese ethnic populations, 55 Senegalese women with invasive cervical carcinoma were compared with age-matched (human papillomavirus) HPV-positive ( n = 83) and HPV-negative ( n = 107) control women. PCR-based HPV and HLA typing methods were used. Data were analyzed using a global randomization test and conditional logistic regression. Although this study failed to confirm a previously reported association between cervical cancer and DQB1*03 alleles, the DRB1*1101-DQB1*0301 haplotype was detected more frequently among cervical carcinoma cases than among controls (adjusted odds ratio, 2.6; 95% confidence interval, 1.0–7.1). Furthermore, as reported by others, we observed a negative association of borderline statistical significance between DRB1*13 and cervical carcinoma (adjusted odds ratio, 0.5; 95% confidence interval, 0.2–1.1). Observations from this study confirm earlier findings of a negative association between DRB1*13 and cervical cancer and suggest that specific DRB1-DQB1 haplotype combinations, rather than individual DQB1*03 alleles, increase the risk for cervical cancer. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention American Association of Cancer Research
