Many studies have demonstrated the strong association of Human Leukocyte Antigen (HLA-B*5801) and allopurinol induced Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS) and toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN). Individuals that use DNA tests to determine their HLA genotypes prior to taking these drugs can reduce their risks of developing SJS/TEN significantly.
