More than 40 subtypes of HLA-B27 are known, and some of them (HLA-B2702, B2704, B2705) are related to spondyloarthropathies. The role of antigen modulation, interaction with immunogenic characteristics of the organism, hypothesis of "molecular mimicry"--specific immune tolerance and "cross-reactivity", are only some of the theories attempting to clarify the etiopathogenesis of ReA [3].
