cohort, were genotyped in 451 unrelated Atopic dermatitis patients and 375 non-atopic controls by means of restriction enzyme digestion. Allele, genotype and haplotype frequencies were subsequently compared between cases and controls. Results In this analysis, none of the investigated Single nucleotide polymorphisms or haplotypes in the Claudin-1 gene showed a significant association with Atopic dermatitis. Conclusion Our results do not support a substantial role for Claudin-1 variation in… CONTINUE READING
