HLA-B5 (B51/52) Test for Behcet's Disease

The HLA B5 test is a blood test conducted to help diagnose Behcet's disease, a rare disorder that causes blood vessel inflammation throughout your body. HLA-B5 is of two types: B51 and B52. B51 is a split antigen of the broad antigen B5, and is a sister serotype of B52. The presence of the B51 antigen is often associated with a higher risk of developing Behcet's disease, but it's important to note that not everyone who are positive to HLA-B51 antigen will have the disease.
