A disintegrin and metalloprotease 33 (ADAM33) gene polymorphisms and the risk of asthma: a meta-analysis.


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… (More)
