Abstract

Data from the Seventh International Histocompatibility Workshop suggested the existence of two alleles subtypic to HLA-B17 [3, 8], and this was confirmed during the Eighth Workshop [4, 5], These alleles are designated HLA-Bw57 and Bw58 and are included in Bw4. During the 72nd International Cell Exchange of Terasaki, another split of B17 was suggested on a cell from a Negro donor (cell 288).
