Use Cord Blood Single Nucleotide Polymorphism to Predict the Later Development of Atopy and Allergy

2014-08-27 03:39:45 | BioPortfolio


The aim of our study was firstly to detect in cord bloods the polymorphism of genes related to atopy and allergic diseases and to examine their mutual interaction and their associations with cord blood IgE and cytokines. After that, in the prospective follow-up visits, we liked to investigate if the measurement of cord blood SNPs of genes related to atopy and allergic diseases was helpful in predicting the development of atopy and allergic diseases later in life.

AQUA© Questionnaire as prediction tool for atopy in young elite athletes.

Several studies have already identified atopy as a risk factor for the development of exercise-induced bronchoconstriction (EIB) in adult elite athletes (1-3). Skin prick test or serum specific IgE to...

The relationship between atopy and neurological manifestations in HTLV-1 infection.

Human T-cell lymphotropic virus type 1 (HTLV-1)induces exaggerated Th1 responses, whereas atopy is associated with exacerbated Th2 responses.
