A common haplotype of interleukin-4 gene IL4 is associated with severe respiratory syncytial virus disease in Korean children.
Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is a major health problem in young children, and host response to severe disease favors a Th2 immune response. To investigate the genetic basis for RSV diseaseExpand
