We evaluated the possible association of human leukocyte antigen-G (HLA-G) 3777G>C and 14-bp deletion/insertion (D/I) polymorphisms haplotypes and combined genotypes with perinatal HIV transmission in Brazilian children. The 3777G>C polymorphism alone has no effect on HIV vertical transmission but, when linked with the D allele, exerts a positive role in the protection. Indeed, we identified the DC HLA-G haplotype as significantly associated with a protective effect towards HIV vertical transmission.
