Editorial: Interleukin-18 in asthma and other allergies

  author={Lydie Izakovicova Holla},
The search for genes that contribute to the aetiology of allergic asthma has included several complete screens of the human genome and a number of association and linkage studies. The study by Higa and colleagues in this issue of Clinical and Experimental Allergy is a further example of such association and extends our present knowledge by investigating interleukin-18 (IL-18)gene polymorphisms in atopic asthma.
