Pharmacogenomics 9:453-62. 2008..Herein, we review salient differences in the etiologies of asthma by race, ethnicity and social class, and argue for their continued use as variables in asthma research...
- A genome-wide association study of bronchodilator response in Latinos implicates rare variantsKatherine A Drake
Department of Medicine, University of California, San Francisco, Calif
J Allergy Clin Immunol 133:370-8. 2014..Although these differences might be due to environmental factors, there is mounting evidence for a genetic contribution to variability in bronchodilator response (BDR)...
