One hundred and two normal, unrelated Japanese were tested for the presence of 5 HL A antigens in the LA and the Four series respectively, employing a microlymphocytotoxicity test. It was found that there is virtually no HL A3, HL A8, and especially HL A1 in this sample. In contrast, there is a high incidence of HL A9 and HL A2. These findings confirm previous reports on HL A antigens present in other noncaucasian populations.
