HLA-DR Haplotype Details



13-6-52B 



13-6-52B - Mold Susceptible
 
With regard to biotoxin susceptibility it is reported that this haplotype is statistically correlated with an increased susceptibility to biotoxins from mold1. Importantly, possessing this haplotype does not signify the presence of mold, mycotoxins or other related elements within the body nor is it an indication of past or present exposure. Rather it has been suggested that the immune system of those with this haplotype may be unable or less able to properly identify and eliminate toxins from mold2.
 

Disease Protection
     Elements of this haplotype are reported to be protective against Systemic Lupus Erythematosus3
     Elements of this haplotype are reported to be protective against Psoriasis3
     Elements of this haplotype are reported to be protective against Rheumatoid Arthritis3
     Elements of this haplotype are reported to be protective against Multiple Sclerosis3
     Research suggests that elements of this haplotype may have a protective effect against many autoimmune diseases3
