BACKGROUND Atopic dermatitis (AD) and other atopic diseases often share some common genetic and pathogenic bases. Recent genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have identified several loci associated with atopic diseases, allergic sensitization and asthma in different populations. The aim of this study was to investigate whether these susceptibility loci were related to AD in Chinese Han population. METHODS Eight single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) from recent atopic diseases and allergic…

Genetics and Epigenetics of Atopic Dermatitis: An Updated Systematic Review

Filaggrin (FLG) polymorphisms are confirmed as key genetic determinants for AD development, but also epigenetic regulation and other genes with functions mainly related to the immune system and extracellular matrix are reinforced, reinforcing the notion of skin homeostasis breakage in AD.

Atopic dermatitis in diverse racial and ethnic groups—Variations in epidemiology, genetics, clinical presentation and treatment

The need for studies evaluating the tissue molecular and cellular phenotypes of AD in non‐White patients, as well as greater inclusion of minority groups in clinical trials, is highlighted to develop targeted treatments for a multi‐ethnic population.

Association Analysis of Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms at Five Loci: Comparison between Atopic Dermatitis and Asthma in the Chinese Han Population

To investigate whether AD relevant genetic variants is identical to asthma and reveal the differences in genetic factors between AD and asthma in Chinese Han population, seven AD associated single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) as well as 3 other SNPs were genotyped.

Genome-wide association study identifies two new susceptibility loci for atopic dermatitis in the Chinese Han population

This study identifies new genetic susceptibility factors and suggests previously unidentified biological pathways in atopic dermatitis, which is a chronic, relapsing form of inflammatory skin disorder that is affected by genetic and environmental factors.

Genome-wide association study identifies three new susceptibility loci for adult asthma in the Japanese population

The most significant association with adult asthma is observed at rs404860 in the major histocompatiblity complex region, which is close to rs2070600, a SNP previously reported for association with FEV1/FVC in genome-wide association studies for lung function.

Meta-analysis identifies seven susceptibility loci involved in the atopic march

It is suggested that eczema may play an important role in the development of asthma after Eczema, and two novel loci specific for the combined ecZema plus asthma phenotype are reported, which are associated with allergic disease for the first time.

Meta-analysis of genome-wide association studies identifies ten loci influencing allergic sensitization

The number of susceptibility loci with genome-wide significant association with allergic sensitization was increased from three to ten, including SNPs in or near TLR6, C11orf30, STAT6, SLC25A46, HLA-DQB1, IL1RL1, LPP, MYC, IL2 and Hla-B, to provide new insights into the etiology of allergic disease.

A genome-wide association study of atopic dermatitis identifies loci with overlapping effects on asthma and psoriasis

It is indicated that the pathogenesis of AD incorporates immune and epidermal barrier defects with combinations of specific and overlapping effects at individual loci, and the genetic relationship between AD, asthma and psoriasis is explored by examining previously identified susceptibility SNPs for these diseases.

Genome-wide association studies of allergic diseases.

Biologic insights revealed by genome-wide association studies improve the understanding of the pathophysiology of human allergic diseases and contribute to the development of better treatment and preventive strategies.

A genome-wide association meta-analysis of self-reported allergy identifies shared and allergy-specific susceptibility loci

A meta-analysis of genome-wide associations with self-reported cat, dust-mite and pollen allergies in 53,862 individuals used generalized estimating equations to model shared and allergy-specific genetic effects and sheds new light on the shared etiology of immune and autoimmune disease.

Association between the functional polymorphism C-159T in the CD14 promoter gene and nasal polyposis: potential role in asthma.

A genetic variation in the CD14 promoter might play a role in the pathogenesis of NP and in the incidence of asthma.

Thymic stromal lymphopoietin (TSLP) is associated with allergic rhinitis in children with asthma

A role for TSLP in the pathogenesis of AR in children with asthma is supported, and the T allele of TLP SNP rs1837253 is associated with reduced odds for AR in boys with asthma.
