Gene context of Takayasu's Arteritis

  • Plasma levels of vWF:Ag in patients with Takayasu's arteritis did not differ significantly from those in normal subjects, and plasma levels of TM were significantly lower than those in normal subjects [12].
  • Because two HLA-B alleles, HLA-B51 and B39.1, which are similar but different at the epitope from HLA-B52 and B39.2, respectively, are not associated with Takayasu arteritis, 63Glu and 67Ser are supposed to be involved in the pathogenesis [23].
  • The distribution of HLA-A, B, C and DR antigens was determined in a cohort of 104 unrelated Indian patients with Takayasu arteritis (TA) belonging to the North Indian states of Punjab, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh and Delhi [24].
  • High TNF-alpha and low IL-2 producing T cells characterize active disease in Takayasu's arteritis [25].
  • Interleukin-8 in Takayasu's arteritis: plasma levels and relationship with disease activity [26].
