Polymorphisms in the ADAM33 gene have been associated with asthma, but the data are controversial. Therefore, we reviewed the related studies and quantitatively summarized the associations between ADAM33 polymorphisms and asthma risk using meta-analysis. A dominant model (AA+Aa vs. aa), recessive model (AA vs. Aa+aa), additive model (AA vs. aa) and allelic model (A vs. a) were used to estimate the association between ADAM33 polymorphism and asthma risk. A total of 29 case-control studies… CONTINUE READING
