Medical Definition of HLA-b8 antigen

1. Human histocompatibility (HLA) surface antigen encoded by the b locus on chromosome 6. It is in linkage disequilibrium with HLA-a1 and HLA-dr3. This explains the fact that though HLA-b8 was originally associated with several diseases, including coeliac disease, dermatitis herpetiformis, and myasthenia gravis, their association with HLA-dr3 is now considered more significant.
