HLA-DR15 (DR15) is a HLA-DR serotype that recognizes the DRB1*1501 to *1505 and *1507 gene products. DR15 is found at high levels from Ireland to Central Asia. DR15 is part of the older HLA-DR2 serotype group which also contains the similar HLA-DR16 antigens.

Serotypes are unknown for the following alleles: DRB1*1506, *1508 to *1516, *1518 to *1522. DRB1*1517N is a null.


Disease associations[edit]

DR15 is positively associated Goodpasture syndrome,[2] early age onset multiple sclerosis,[3] pernicious anaemia,[4] sarcoidosis,[5] hypocretin deficiency associated narcolepsy[6][7] and a predisposition for postmenopausal osteoporosis.[8]

DRB1*1501 is positively associated with Goodpasture syndrome,[9][10] juvenile rheumatoid arthritis,[11] allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis,[12] multiple sclerosis,[13] systemic lupus erythematosus,[14] cervical cancer (human papillomavirus infection),[15] Sjogren's syndrome associated with systemic lupus erythematosus,[16] and intermediate uveitis.[17]

DRB1*1502 is associated with systemic lupus erythematosus,[18] systemic sclerosis (SSc) & anti-topoisomerase antibodies.[19]

DRB1*1503 is associated with Chaga's cardiomyopathy,[20] allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis,[12] multiple sclerosis,[13] cervical cancer (human papillomavirus infection).[21]

Extended linkage[edit]

DRB1*15:DQA1*0102:DQB1*0602 haplotype us associated with cervical cancer risk in (human papillomavirus infection)[21]

DRB1*1502:DQA1*????:DQB1*0501 haplotype is associated with systemic lupus erythematosus[18]

HLA-DR15 is genetically linked to HLA-DR51 and HLA-DQ6 (HLA-DQ1) serotypes.
