HLA analysis of the Parsi (Zoroastrian) population in Pakistan


, : HLA analysis of the Parsi (Zoroastrian) population in Pakistan. Tissue Antigens 66(6): 691-695

The Parsis of Pakistan are descendants of Zoroastrians from Iran who fled to Gujarat in India after the Arab invasion in 900 AD. A small group eventually migrated from India to Karachi in Pakistan. In this study, the Parsis from Pakistan were analyzed at the HLA-B, -C, -DRB1 and -DQB1 loci using the polymerase chain reaction with sequence-specific primers (PCR-SSP). The most common alleles at the HLA loci were HLA-B*35 (15.9%), HLA-Cw*0602 (21.4%), HLA-DRB1*11 (23.0%), and HLA-DQB1*02 (24.7%). Data analysis suggests that the Parsis of Pakistan and India descended from the same stock and may have the closest ancestry with Jewish and Italian populations.

Aneurysm of the cystic artery is not common, and it is a rare cause of hemobilia. Most of reported cases are pseudoaneurysms resulting from either an inflammatory process in the abdomen or abdominal trauma. We report a healthy individual who devel...
