OBJECTIVES To investigate whether susceptibility or resistance to asthma associated with HLA-DRB alleles and analyze the relationship between HLA-DRB genes and clinical phenotype of asthma (TIgE, sIgE, BHR). METHODS Using PCR-SSP(sequence-specific primer polymerase chain reaction), we tested the frequency distribution of HLA-DRB alleles in 50 asthmatic patients and 80 healthy volunteers from Beijing China. All patients had their serum TIgE, IgE antibody specific to house dust mite measured by… CONTINUE READING
