"If you are one of two affected siblings with parents OR families with several AA members (at least 2). We are trying to collect AA families and sib pairs for genetic linkage studies. However, we are also interested in whether HLA genes in combination (DRB/DQ) or (DQA/DQB) determine alopecia universalis. We will send you a consent form and have you send us blood samples." To obtain the consent form or for further information write to Dr. Madeleine Duvic, M.D. at the address above or via email at mduvic@mdanderson.org
