Abstract

We analyzed HLA-G 3777G > C, HLA-G 14 bp deletion/insertion and HLA-G*0105N polymorphisms in HIV-positive white adult participants, infected through horizontal heterosexual transmission, and unexposed uninfected individuals, all from north eastern Italy. We report a new association between the HLA-G*0105N allele and HIV infection in adult white female participants, being HLA-G*0105N null allele correlated with an augmented risk (odds ratio = 4.35, 95% confidence interval = 1.38-18.07, P = 0.005) for HIV infection.
