aControls are non-transmitted alleles; bodds ratio of transmission of minor allele versus transmission of major allele as determined in logistic regression; clikelihood ratio test evaluating model including HLA-DRB1 alleles S2 and S3P and MICA-250 versus S2 and S3P only. For the HLA-DRB1 locus, allele L was used as reference. dP value corrected for multiple testing less than 0.05. CI, confidence interval; LD, linkage disequilibrium; TDT, transmission disequilibrium test.
