OBJECTIVE Asthma is a common childhood disease with strong genetic components. This study compared whole-genome expression differences between asthmatic young children and healthy controls to identify gene signatures of childhood asthma. METHODS Total RNA extracted from peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) was subjected to microarray analysis. QRT… CONTINUE READING
