What's new?

  • This is the largest study in African Americans with Type 1 diabetes to date and the only study to account for ancestry.
  • This is the only study to date that fine maps the HLA region in African American samples using a dense map of 5147 single nucleotide polymorphisms and the class II genes.
  • We find HLA Type 1 diabetes associations that agree with known associations in Europeans, and novel associations of African ancestry specific alleles, e.g. HLA-DRB1*03:02, which confers protection from Type 1 diabetes.
