Abstract

The frequencies of 32 HLA antigens of the A and B series were determined in a previously unstudied population of Mexican‐Americans in South Texas. The phenotype and gene frequencies for this group are presented and are contrasted with those determined in studies of Mexican/Mexican—American populations from two different locales. The statistically significant differences observed emphasize the need for indigenous controls when evaluating racially heterogeneous populations for disease‐associated HLA antigens.
