427 healthy individuals ranging in age from 16 to 101 years were tested for HLA—A and—B antigens. No significant differences were found for any particular antigen according to the age of the individual. However, a significant trend of increasing frequency with age was found for individuals possessing two detectable HLA—B antigens. An apparent trend of increasing frequencies for individuals possessing four HLA—A and—B antigens was not significant. These results concur with those of some previously published studies.
