OBJECTIVE.: The complication of interstitial lung disease (ILD) is associated with the anti-aminoacyl tRNA synthetase antibody (ARS ab) or the anti-MDA5 antibody (MDA5 ab) in polymyositis (PM)/dermatomyositis (DM). Anti-MDA5 ab is associated with clinically amyopathic DM and fatal outcome due to rapidly progressive ILD in Asia. The association between genetic factors and anti-MDA5 ab-positive DM has remained unclear. We investigated the HLA-DRB1 genotype in anti- MDA5 ab-positive DM. METHODS.: We compared the genetic differences among 17 patients with anti-MDA5 ab-positive DM, 33 patients with anti-ARS ab-positive PM/DM, 33 PM/DM patients without anti-ARS ab or ILD and 265 healthy controls (HCs). RESULTS.: The frequencies of HLA-DRB1*0101 and DRB1*0405 were 29% and 71% in anti-MDA5 ab-positive DM, respectively, which were higher than the frequencies in HCs (10% and 25%, respectively). Among 17 patients with anti-MDA5 ab-positive DM, 16 (94%) patients harbored either the DRB1*0101 or DRB1*0405 allele. The frequency of the DRB1*0101 or 0405 allele was significantly higher in anti-MDA5 ab-positive DM patients compared with PM/DM patients without anti-ARS ab or ILD (P = 1.1e-05, odds ratio 42.7, confidence interval [CI] 4.9-370.2) or anti-ARS ab-positive PM/DM patients (P = 4.5e-03, odds ratio 13.3, CI 1.6-112.6). CONCLUSION.: HLA-DRB1*0101/*0405 is associated with susceptibility to anti-MDA5 ab-positive DM in the Japanese population. © 2012 American College of Rheumatology.
