HLA-B*5701 carrier risk for hypersensitivity to various drugs including abacavir This genotype is associated with an HIV viral load 1 log (10 fold) lower than the most common genotype (rs2395029(T;T)). Possible 2x higher risk for psoriasis See also rs2395029 and HIV. The (G) allele frequency is only 0.05 which means only about 1 in 10 people have this genotype.

I guess because this is an aggregate of science papers online the language can be kind of hard to parse for laymen! on the plus side i am also predisposed to a lack of empathy, greater memory recall and smaller breasts!
