Abstract
ABSTRACT
The article presents some papers related to genetic susceptibility to lung disease. Several polymorphisms of cytokine genes have been shown to be associated with solid organ allograft rejection. Recent reports suggest that, in a North American population, possession of common high producer alleles of the interleukin-6 and interferon-gamma genes, identified by common single nucleotide polymorphisms in the gene control regions, contribute to the risk of developing bronchiolitis obliterans syndrome.
