Ethnicity May Influence Antibody Genes: Immunity-Related DNA Sections Could Vary Depending on Ethnicity, Simon Fraser University Study

Cracking the DNA code for a complex region of the human genome has helped 14 North American scientists, including five at Simon Fraser University, chart new territory in immunity research. They have discovered that a good number of our antibody genes, how well they operate and, potentially, what they fight off, actually vary from person to person. That means even though drugs, treatments and vaccinations are designed to treat whole populations, our response to them could be individualistic.
