asthma in children

Large genome-wide association study is first to focus on both child and adult asthma

, Is the first large investigation to examine the differences in genetic risk factors for childhood-onset and adult-onset asthma.

This genome-wide association study (GWAS) found that childhood-onset asthma was associated with nearly three times as many genes as adult-onset asthma. Genes associated with adult onset asthma were a subset of those associated with childhood-onset asthma, nearly all with smaller effects on adult-onset asthma than on childhood-onset asthma.

The researchers also found that these childhood-onset genes were highly expressed in epithelial cells (skin). Both childhood-onset and adult-onset asthma genes were highly expressed in blood (immune) cells.

"This was the largest asthma-related GWAS yet attempted," said study co-author Carole Ober, PhD, professor and chair of the Department of Human Genetics at the University of Chicago, and her collaborator Hae Kyung Im, PhD, assistant professor in the Department of Medicine. "We found that the genes involved in adult-onset asthma are largely a subset of genes associated with childhood asthma. At later ages, however, the same genes tend to have smaller effects."

Are the remedies on the Chemist Counter good for the control of catarrh in children asthma?

MY daughter produces lot of catarrh culminating in asthma, are the syrups and medicines in the market good for the prevention and/or formation of catarrah or is it that asthmatic children do not benefit from them at all? I appreciate your help and answers.


...best to see knowledgeable Doctor - phone around - also a very good chiropractor - research shows a benefit when your relieve interference in the nerves which run through the spine. Say a prayer you will find the right team for your child. Intention

Sounds like you could possibly have Asthma also. I would recommend going to see a Doctor for that.
