BACKGROUND Japanese cedar pollinosis is the most common form of hayfever in Japan in spring and has remarkably increased since 1960. OBJECTIVE We sought to clarify the candidate genes for cedar pollinosis using a case-control study. METHODS After diagnosing 351 subjects on the basis of an intradermal test, nasal provocation test, and questionnaire regarding nasal and conjunctival symptoms, we determined the blood-specific IgE values and genotypes of eosinophil peroxidase (EPO) and… CONTINUE READING
