Compared with normal individuals, patients with primary open angle glaucoma have increased prevalences of HLA B12 and B7 antigens and are more responsive to glucocorticoids. Lymphocytes from both ocular normotensive and glaucomatous individuals with the HLA B12 antigen require significantly (P<.02) lower concentrations of prednisolone to inhibit phytohemagglutinin induced transformation.
