Reply to V.S. Sloan
Reply to V.S. Sloan: Dr.Sloan has rightly pointed out the importance of HLA-DM in regulating the immune response in rheumatoid arthritis, kidney transplant rejection, and membranous nephropathy. We did not mention the role of HLA-DM because our review dealt solely with infectious diseases that have well-established HLA associations.
