Abstract: Objective: Behcet disease is one of the major etiologies of uveitis causing blindness in Asian countries. A genome-wide association study identified 6 microsatellite markers as disease susceptibility loci for Japanese patients with Behcet disease. To confirm our recent results, these microsatellite markers were examined in a Korean population as a replication study. Methods: Study participants included 119 Behcet patients and 141 controls. All were enrolled in Korea. Association between the 6 reported microsatellite markers (D3S0186i, D6S0014i, D6S0032i, 536G12A, D12S0645i, and D22S0104i) and Behcet disease was analysed. HLA-B was genotyped by sequence-based typing methods. Results: A microsatellite marker located near the HLA-B region demonstrated significant association with Behcet disease (P = 0.028). The genotype and phenotype frequencies of the HLA-B*51 gene were significantly increased in patients (23.1% and 39.5%, respectively) compared with healthy controls (11.2% and 20.1%, respectively; P < 0.001). Conclusions: Microsatellite analysis revealed that the HLA-B*51 gene was strongly associated with Behcet disease in a Korean population.
