The incidence of HL-A antigens on peripheral lymphocytes of 154 patients with lymphoid tumors has been compared with that of 383 controls. With the use of the simple χ2test and a 5% level of significance, seven different associations appear to be valid. However, when the p value is corrected by multiplying it by the number of factors investigated, only the association of HL-A12 with lymphocytic lymphomas and the 4c antigen with chronic lymphatic leukemia appear to be significant. The previously described increased incidence of W5 and 4c in Hodgkin's disease was not found in the population studied, nor was the HL-A2-12 phenotype found to be increased in acute lymphatic leukemia.
