To investigate the association among RANTES (regulated on activation normal T cell expressed and secreted) gene promoter polymorphism, serum RANTES levels, and recurrent wheezing after RSV (respiratory syncytial virus) bronchiolitis in children (1–12 months of age) from Han, Southern china. Three hundred twenty children with RSV bronchiolitis and 272 controls were enrolled in the 3-year follow-up study. The polymerase chain reaction–restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCR-RELP), enzyme… CONTINUE READING
