    To identify a novel human leukocyte antigen (HLA) A allele.
    A new HLA-A allele was found during routine HLA genotyping by polymerase chain reaction-sequence specific oligonucleotide probes (PCR-SSOP) and sequencing-based typing (SBT).
    The novel HLA-A*30 allele was identical to A*300101 except that a nucleotide C at position 294 of exon 2 is substituted by A, resulting in codon 98 changed from GAC (D) to GAA (E).
    A new HLA allele, HLA-A*3020, was identified, and was named officially by the WHO Nomenclature Committee.
