Table 3 HLA alleles with statistically significant differences in frequency between patients with reversal reactions and those with no reaction

From: Human leukocyte antigen class I and class II alleles are associated with susceptibility and resistance in borderline leprosy patients from Southeast Brazil

HLA allele Reversal reaction (N = 94) No reaction (N = 94) p pc OR IC
  n % n %     
B*15 27 28.72 12 12.76 0.011 0.672 2.75 1.30–5.85
  1. N: number of individuals, n: number of alleles (2n), %: allele frequency, p: Fisher’s exact test (p ≤ 0.05), pc: corrected p value, OR: odds ratio, CI: confidence interval.
