OBJECTIVE To investigate whether polymorphisms in forkhead box protein 3 (FOXP3) and EBV-induced gene 3 (EBI3) genes are associated with allergic rhinitis (AR) in Chinese patients. METHODS A population-based case-control association study design was used to assess the risk of AR conferred by single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in FOXP3 and EBI3 gene… CONTINUE READING
