Allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA) is a hypersensitivity lung disease that affects patients with cystic fibrosis (CF) and asthmatic patients. Indeed, HLA-DRB1 alleles have previously been associated with ABPA-CF susceptibility although HLA-DQB1 allele associations were not clearly established. Our aim was to study HLA class II associations in our ABPA-CF patients and determine their role in susceptibility or protection. Patients with ABPA-CF, CF patients without ABPA, asthmatic patients without ABPA (AST) and healthy controls were included in this study. DNA was extracted by automatic extractor. HLA-DRB1 and -DQB1 genotyping was performed by luminex PCR-SSO method (OneLambda, CA). Allele specific PCR-SSP was also performed by high resolution analysis (OL, CA). Statistical analysis was performed by SSPS and Arlequin softwares. Both HLA-DRB1*15:01 and -DRB1*11:04 alleles showed an increased frequency in ABPA-CF patients with respect to AST, CF and controls, corroborating the data previously published. On the other hand, analysis of haplotypes revealed that almost all patients with ABPA-CF lacking DRB1*15:01 or DRB1*11:04 carry either DRB1*04, DRB1*11:01 or DRB1*07:01 alleles. In the HLA-DQB1 region, HLA-DQB1*06:02 allele was increased in these ABPA-CF patients with respect to AST and CF patients, and healthy controls, whereas HLA-DQB1*02:01 was decreased in ABPA-CF patients. These data confirm that a correlation exists between HLA-DRB1*15:01, -DRB1*11:04, DRB1*11:01, -DRB1*04 and -DRB1*07:01 alleles, and ABPA-CF susceptibility and suggest that HLA-DQB1*02:01 is an ABPA-CF resistance allele.
