dc.description.abstractExcept for two reports on Lebanese immigrants, there have been no studies on the major histocompatibility [‎MHC]‎ antigens in the Lebanese population. We describe the frequency and distribution of MHC class I antigens present in the A, B and C loci based on data obtained from 200 healthy unrelated individuals from different parts of Lebanon. The highest gene frequencies were as follows: A2 [‎24.8%]‎, B35 [‎17.9%]‎ and Cw4 [‎18.6%]‎, making this haplotype the commonest. Comparison of genetic distances revealed a pattern closer to the Caucasoid population than to the Mongoloid, Oriental or Black populationsEN
