Human leukocyte antigen class II in patients with recurrent fetal miscarriage who are positive for anticardiolipin antibody Isao Hataya, M.D., Koichi Takakuwa, M.D., and Kenichi Tanaka, M.D. Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Niigata University School of Medicine, Asahimachi-dori, Niigata, Japan Objective: To elucidate the relationship between human leukocyte antigen (HLA) class II s and patients with recurrent fetal miscarriage who are positive for anticardiolipin antibody. Design: Prospective clinical study. Setting: Institutional practice at the outpatient clinic for infertility, Niigata University Medical Hospital. Patient(s): with recurrent fetal miscarriage who were positive for anticardiolipin antibody and normal fertile women. Intervention(s): Genomic DNA was extracted from peripheral mononuclear cells. Main Outcome Measure(s): Human leukocyte antigen class II was determined using a polymerase chain reaction restriction fragment length polymorphism method. Result(s): The frequencies of DRB1*0403 and DRB1*0410 were significantly higher in the patient group than in the control group. The frequency of DRB1*04 also was significantly higher in the patient group. As for HLA-DQ, the frequency of HLA-DQB1*0501 was significantly lower in the patient group. Conclusion: Human leukocyte antigen systems appear to be involved in the genesis of antiphospholipid syndrome. (Fertil Steril 1998;70: by American Society for Reproductive Medicine.) Key Words: Anticardiolipin antibody, antiphospholipid syndrome,, HLA class II, PCR-RFLP Received March 13, 1998; revised and accepted June 26, Reprint requests: Isao Hataya, M.D., Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Niigata University School of Medicine, 1-757, Asahimachi-dori, Niigata, , Japan (FAX: ) /98/$19.00 PII S (98) It has recently been suggested that autoimmune mechanisms are involved in the genesis of fetal miscarriage, including spontaneous abortion and intrauterine fetal demise. The concept of a new disease, the antiphospholipid syndrome or the reproductive autoimmune failure syndrome, has been proposed (1 4) and has been supported by several clinical reports (5 11), in which patients have diverse reproductive failures. These include recurrent fetal miscarriage, intrauterine fetal growth retardation, and preeclampsia, in connection with positivity for antiphospholipid antibodies. The abnormal generation of autoantibodies, such as those directed against phospholipids, in these patients is thought to suggest aberrations in immune regulation. The immunologic background of this disease entity, however, has not yet been analyzed fully. The human leukocyte antigen (HLA) systems are useful in examining the immunogenetic basis of some diseases because these systems control both the immune response to natural antigens and the susceptibility or resistance to several diseases, especially autoimmune diseases (12). It is also possible that HLA antigen systems are associated with recurrent fetal miscarriage in patients who are positive for antiphospholipid antibodies. Several reports based on serologic HLA typing have pointed out the positive association between patients with recurrent fetal miscarriage who are positive for antiphospholipid antibodies and specific HLA alleles (13, 14). A molecular genetic approach for determining HLA class II genes, however, has not yet been taken to analyze the association between the patients and specific HLA alleles.

In this study, the frequency of s of HLA-DR, HLA-DQ, and HLA-DP antigens was evaluated by means of the PCR- RFLP method. This was done to clarify the role of the HLA class II antigens in patients positive for anticardiolipin antibody who repeatedly have fetal miscarriages. MATERIALS AND METHODS Fifty-six patients who experienced two or more recurrent abortions or fetal deaths and who were positive for anticardiolipin antibodies were enrolled in this study; all patients gave informed consent. with autoimmune disease, such as systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), were excluded from the study. The control group consisted of 76 women who had not had recurrent fetal miscarriage and who had had at least two normal deliveries; these women were examined for HLA class II s after informed consent was obtained. All women in the control group were negative for anticardiolipin antibody. All individuals were Japanese women, and the difference between the mean age of the individuals in the two groups was not statistically significant. Measurement of Anticardiolipin Antibody Levels of anticardiolipin antibody were determined with use of an ELISA according to the modified method of Loizou et al. (18). Details of the method have been described elsewhere (9). GPL units in the test serum were estimated according to the standard curve drawn from the titration of control serum, and the cutoff value was 20 GPL units of the anticardiolipin antibody. Analyses of HLA Class II Genotypes Analyses of HLA-DRB1 s, HLA-DQB1 s, and HLA-DPB1 s were performed with use of the PCR-RFLP method.

3 Genomic DNA extracted from peripheral lymphocytes was amplified by the PCR procedure. The second exon of DRB1 genes for DR2, DR4, DR1, DR7, DR10, DR3, DR5, DR6, and DR8 was amplified using one of six group-specific 5 primers along with the common 3 primer. The second exon of the DRB1 gene for DR9 was amplified using a specific 5 primer and a 3 primer (15). A 241 base pair fragment from the second exon of the HLA-DQB1 gene was amplified by using DQ1 group-specific primers, and a 237 base pair fragment was amplified using DQ2, DQ3, and DQ4 group-specific primers, according to the methods described by Nomura et al. (16). A 299 base pair fragment from the second exon of the HLA- DPB1 gene was amplified with use of PCR primers according to the methods described by Ota et al. (17). After amplification, aliquots of the reaction mixture were digested by allele-specific restriction endonucleases. The samples were subjected to electrophoresis in a minigel apparatus (AE6450; Atto Corporation, Tokyo, Japan). HLA- DRB1 gene, HLA-DQB1 gene, and HLA-DPB1 gene types were determined by comparing the patterns of RFLP obtained in tested individuals with those of amplified DRB1, DQB1, and DPB1 genes, as reported by Ota et al. (15), Nomura et al. (16) and Ota et al. (17), respectively. Institutional review board approval was obtained for this study. Statistical Analysis The relative risk (RR) was calculated with a 95% confidence interval (CI) to analyze whether there was a statistically significant difference between the frequency of a certain HLA in the patient group and that in the control group. RESULTS The frequencies of DRB1*0403 and DRB1*0410 were significantly higher in the patient group than in the control group (RR 4.44, 95% CI ; and RR 8.55, 95% CI , respectively). The frequency of DRB1*04 also was significantly higher in the patient group (RR 2.44, 95% CI ) (Table 3). As for HLA-DQ, the frequency of DQB1*0501 was significantly lower in the patient group (RR 0.21, 95% CI ). The frequencies of other s of HLA-DQ antigens were not significantly different between the groups (Table 4). No statistically significant difference in the frequency of HLA-DP s was observed between the groups (Table 5). DISCUSSION In studying the immunologic background of the patients with recurrent fetal miscarriage who were positive for anticardiolipin antibody, we found that the frequency of certain TABLE 3 Frequency of HLA-DRB1 in patients and DRB1 Percentage of indicated * (no. of loci with indicated ) HLA class II s in the patient group was significantly different from that in the normal fertile female population. It has recently been suggested that autoimmune factors, especially newly defined autoantibodies such as antiphospholipid antibodies, are implicated in such adverse outcomes of pregnancy as spontaneous abortion, fetal death, fetal growth retardation, and preeclampsia. Hughes et al. (1) first described the antiphospholipid syndrome, in which patients had general thrombosis and recurrent fetal miscarriage and showed positivity for antiphospholipid antibodies. Gleicher and colleagues (2 4) postulated a reproductive autoimmune failure syndrome in which autoimmune factors, such as lupus anticoagulant or antiphospholipid antibodies, are implicated in the genesis of unexplained recurrent fetal miscarriage. It has recently been shown that most autoimmune dis- RR 95% CI (1) 6.6 (10) (2) 2.0 (3) (12) 2.6 (4) (1) (10) 8.6 (13) (3) 0.7 (1) (1) (6) 0.7 (1) (2) (1) (2) 5.3 (8) (8) 8.6 (13) (14) 13.2 (20) (1) 0.7 (1) (2) 0.7 (1) (4) 2.6 (4) (1) 2.0 (3) (3) 5.3 (8) (6) 7.9 (12) (6) 2.6 (4) (1) 0.7 (1) (6) (1) (4) 3.9 (6) (1) (8) 5.9 (9) (14) 11.2 (17) (4) (34) 15.1 (23) Note: All values for the RR and 95% CI were not statistically significant, with the exception of those indicated.

For example, Badenhoop et al. (19) noted the association of DQA1*0201/*0301 heterozygotes and Hashimoto s disease. They also demonstrated the involvement of the HLA-DQ gene in the genesis of a typical endocrine autoimmune disease, type I diabetes mellitus, and Graves disease using the PCR and sequence-specific oligonucleotide hybridization method (20).

In this study, we investigated the s of HLA class II antigens HLA-DR, HLA-DQ, and HLA-DP using the PCR-RFLP method in patients with recurrent fetal miscarriage who were positive for anticardiolipin antibody. The frequencies of DRB1*0403 and DRB1*0410 were significantly higher in patients than in the control group. As for HLA-DQ, the frequency of HLA-DQB1*0501 was significantly lower in the patient group. Granados et al. (13) reported that Mexican patients with SLE who were positive for anticardiolipin antibody had significantly increased corrected frequencies of the HLA- DR3, HLA-DR7, and HLA-DQ2 antigens. Sebastiani et al. (14) reported that the antiphospholipid antibody and the lupus anticoagulant occurred in families carrying haplotypes that contain HLA-DR4, HLA-DR7, and HLA-DR53. In this study, the relationship between the HLA-DR3 and HLA-DR7 antigens and patients with the anticardiolipin antibody was not detected because these antigens are rare in the Japanese population. The known higher frequency of HLA-DR4 is reflected in the findings of our study. The finding of a significantly lower frequency of HLA- DQB1*0501 is unique to our study. Although recent investigation has indicated the critical role of specific HLA-DQ polymorphisms in establishing the nature of bound antigens, thereby influencing the potential immune repertoire (21), the mechanisms behind the significantly lower frequency of HLA-DQB1*0501 in patients with this disease have not been understood. The etiologic agent that triggers the generation of the anticardiolipin antibody in susceptible individuals has not been identified. The possibility of direct involvement of the non-hla gene, which is linked strongly to the class II region, cannot be excluded in the generation of the anticardiolipin antibody in these patients. Recent genetic analysis by van Endert et al. (22) demonstrated that the genes in the class II region are involved in the processing of antigenic proteins for presentation by major histocompatibility complex class I molecules. The analysis indicated a strong linkage disequilibrium between TAP (the transporter associated with antigen processing) genes and LMP (the low-molecular-mass polypeptide) genes and class II regions. Their allelic polymorphism should be studied in patients positive for anticardiolipin antibody to determine the primary locus within the class II region that is responsible for genetic susceptibility to disease. There is also the possibility that patients become positive for anticardiolipin antibodies because of amino acid residues in DRB1 molecules. It is also possible that a specially processed epitope on a foreign or self-triggered antigen may have a specific, unusual affinity for the DRB1 molecule with DR4 specificities, leading to the generation of the anticardiolipin antibody in these patients. Examination of amino acid residues from the DRB1 al- 922 Hataya et al. HLA class II and antiphospholipid syndrome Vol. 70, No. 5, November 1998

5 leles has shown that histidine at position 13 is specific to DR4, the frequency of which was increased in our patients. The first hypervariable region (amino acid residues at positions 9 to 13) is located on the beta-strands of the sheet at the bottom of the antigen binding groove described by Brown et al. (23, 24); amino acids residing at positions 9, 11, and 13 display a high degree of polymorphism. Therefore, it seems likely that histidine at position 13 contributed to the predisposition toward production of the anticardiolipin antibody in our patients. References 1.
