Hi Netters,
Does anyone here do any HLA-B27 testing for ankylosing spondylitis? I'm curious 
if anyone that does testing for this marker uses Antibodies and FACS or PCR. How
important is it to test for various other HLA specifities, e.g. the cross- 
reactive group (B0701, 0702, 0703, 4201, 5401, 5501, 5502, 5601, 5602)? Any help
would be most appreciated. 
     
Thanks, 
Stephen Scharf.
