The sera of 90 patients with systemic lupus erythematosus were examined to determine the HL A antigen pattern and the presence of lymphocytotoxic antibodies. A significant increase was found in the frequency of HL A 2, 5 and 8 antigens, as compared with that in the normal population. Lymphocytotoxic antibodies were found in 32% of sera at 15°C, and in 18% at 22°C.
