Conversely, chromosome 19 was linked to both asthma and bronchial hyper-responsiveness in non-exposed families, with no evidence for linkage in the smoke-exposed families. Comment Significant gene–environment interactions were detected in this study. Indeed, smoke exposure seemed to be crucial for the linkages on chromosome 5q in particular, as there was essentially no relationship between this region and asthma or bronchial hyper-responsiveness phenotypes in the families not exposed to tobacco smoke (Fig.

On the basis of these observations it has been postulated that one set of susceptibility genes may underlie the basic immune dysregulation of allergy, while other genes may determine the target organ in which the immune dysregulation is manifested. Thus, studies that identify and compare susceptibility loci between allergic rhinitis, atopic dermatitis and/or asthma are crucial in advancing our understanding of the allergic disease process. A topic that is of paramount importance in the successful identification of susceptibility loci is the accuracy of the diagnosis or phenotype description.

The role of leukotriene B4 and its receptors, which contribute to neutrophil recruitment and other effector functions of the innate and acquired immune systems, are addressed in two of the articles reviewed. Two important emerging features of asthma and approaches to therapy are also reviewed. Asthma treatment is conventionally guided by targets for normalization of symptom scores, indices of lung function and requirement for bronchodilators |4|. Recently, however, alternative approaches have been proposed, based upon normalization of indices of airway inflammation.
