Identification of genetic polymorphisms associated with asthma and allergies in children in five European countries

The project aimed to identify gene polymorphisms involved in the development of asthma and atopic disease, as well as to investigate gene expression and gene-environment interactions.

Genotyping could be performed in a large number of children, and material for genotyping of their parents could also be obtained. The project offers huge potential for further epidemiological analyses.
