Abstract: The importance of HLA alleles in the process of haematopoietic stem cell transplantation, especially the process of unrelated donor search, is enormous. Macedonian Bone Marrow Donor Registry was established in 2010 and has registered volunteer donors from different nationalities that live in the Republic of Macedonia. The aim of this study was to determine the HLA allele and haplotype frequencies of the volunteer donors from the Macedonian Bone Marrow Donor Registry and to compare this results with the Macedonians from a family study. We analyzed 1,541 donors, with different nationalities, Macedonian, Albanian and Macedonian Muslims that were most numerous in MBMDR, and typed them for HLA-A, -B, -C, -DRB1, whereas Macedonian also for HLA-DQA1 and HLA-DQB1 by SSO method (One Lambda, CA, USA). The most frequent alleles in Macedonians were HLA-A*02, 01, 24; HLA-B*35, 18, 51; HLA-C*07, 04, 12; HLA-DRB1*11, 16, 13; HLA-DQA1*01, 05 and HLA-DQB1*05, 03, 06; in Albanians they were HLA-A*02, 24,01; HLA-B*51, 18, 35; HLA-C*07, 04, 12, HLA-DRB1*11, 13,16; and in Macedonian Muslims they were HLA-A*02, 01, 24; HLA-B*18, 51, 35, HLA-C*07, 04, 02 and HLA-DRB1*11, 16, 14. The most common haplotype in Macedonian was HLA-A*01-B*08-C*07-DRB1*03, whilst in Albanian and Macedonian Muslims HLA-A*02-B*18-C*07-DRB1*11. The comparison of the HLA allele groups between Macedonian from MBMDR and family study showed similar distribution. This study confirmed the close relationship between the populations that live in the Balkan Peninsula.
