    Abstract

    It is assumed that the difference of HLA class I distribution among ethnic populations influences HIV evolution because HLA-restricted immune pressure selects escape mutations. Approximately 50% of HLA class I alleles are shared between Japanese and Caucasians. The analysis of HLA-associated polymorphism (HLA-AP) in both Japanese and Caucasian infected with clade B virus is expected to clarify the difference of HIV-1 evolution between both populations.
