    Atopy and asthma are complex genetic diseases resulting from the interactions of a number of genetic and environmental factors. We had previously reported allelic association between the IL9 marker on chromosome 5q31–33 and atopy. In order to further investigate the role of susceptibility...

    Asthma and atopy are complex phenotypes that are influenced by both genetic and environmental factors. A review of nearly 500 papers on disease association studies identified 25 genes that have been associated with an asthma or atopy phenotype in six or more populations. An additional 54 genes...

    There is a need to better define phenotypes of asthma. However, many studies have data available only on asthma and atopy, so they are often used to define 'atopic' and 'non-atopic' asthma. We discuss and illustrate the problems of analyzing such outcomes. We used the 31 year follow-up of the...

    Background: Patterns of wheezing during early childhood may indicate differences in aetiology and prognosis of respiratory illnesses. Improved characterisation of wheezing phenotypes could lead to the identification of environmental influences on the development of asthma and airway...

  • Phenotypes and endotypes of severe asthma in children. Young Yoo // Korean Journal of Pediatrics;May2013, Vol. 56 Issue 5, p191 

    Severe childhood asthma is a complicated and heterogeneous disorder with distinct phenotypes. Children with severe asthma have more persistent symptoms despite receiving treatment, more atopy, greater airway obstruction, and more air trapping than those with mild-to-moderate asthma. They also...

    Asthma, atopy, and related phenotypes are heterogeneous complex traits, with both genetic and environmental risk factors. Extensive research has been conducted and over hundred genes have been associated with asthma and atopy phenotypes, but many of these findings have failed to replicate in...
