    Division of Transplantation and Immunogenetics, Department of Pathology and Clinical Biochemistry, Queen Mary Hospital, Hong Kong SAR, China
    Tissue Antigens 81:237-9. 2013
    ..The new DRB1*11:129 allele differs from the closest matching allele HLA-DRB1*11:06:01 by one nucleotide substitution in exon 3 at position 623 (G→A)...
  2. doi request reprint Detection of HLA-B*58:01, the susceptible allele for allopurinol-induced hypersensitivity, by loop-mediated isothermal amplification
    J Kwok
    Division of Transplantation and Immunogenetics, Department of Pathology and Clinical Biochemistry, Queen Mary Hospital, Hong Kong SAR, China
    Br J Dermatol 168:526-32. 2013
    ..A strong pharmacogenetic association of human leucocyte antigen (HLA)-B*58:01 with allopurinol-induced drug hypersensitivity has been reported, especially in the Han Chinese population...
  3. doi request reprint Loop-mediated isothermal amplification for detection of HLA-B*58:01 allele
    J Kwok
    Division of Transplantation and Immunogenetics, Department of Pathology and Clinical Biochemistry, Queen Mary Hospital, Hong Kong SAR, China
    Tissue Antigens 81:83-92. 2013
    ..The HLA-B*58:01 LAMP assay has compatible sensitivity and specificity to routine genotyping assays, and it is potentially an alternative screening test for the detection of HLA-B*58:01 and ultimately allopurinol-induced hypersensitivity...

    J Kwok
    Clinical Immunology Division, Department of Pathology, Queen Mary Hospital, Pokfulam Road, Hong Kong
    J Clin Pathol 58:457-62. 2005
    ..The waste of technician time and reagents as a result of unnecessary repeat testing is excessive. Many of these tests might be eliminated with the use of interventions such as computerised reminders...
