Distribution of HLA antigens, haplotypes and phenotypes of the histocompatibility complex was studied and compared in 110 patients with tick borne encephalitis, living in Novosibirsk. The disease patterns and varieties were many and varied. Distribution of HLA antigens in 140 healthy subjects also living in Novosibirsk served as control. Based on the results of the immunogenetic examination of patients with tick borne encephalitis, the methods were elaborated, enabling one to predict with a high accuracy of probability the development of the feverish, meningeal or focal forms of tick borne encephalitis, one- or two-wave disease variety within the first days of disease. Concurrent analysis of the sex of the person bitten by the virulent tick and combination in one genotype of several allelic forms of the main histocompatibility complex genes allows one to raise appreciably the prognostic significance of the immunogenetic examination and to elaborate high-informative individual diagnostic criteria.
