23andMe presents top 10 most interesting genetic findings of 2010
Date:1/12/2011

eviously reported association between a region on chromosome 17 and asthma was specific to childhood asthma only. When the researchers looked for genetic associations with allergy susceptibility (a condition that is often linked to asthma) they found very little overlap, suggesting that allergy sensitivity may be an effect of asthma rather than its cause.

The two studies' findings could lead eventually to the development of new types of treatments for childhood asthma. Previous research linking genetic variants on chromosome 17 with the risk for childhood asthma in Europeans suggested that these variants have an effect only in children who are exposed to tobacco smoke. More research will be needed to work out the details, but the importance of chromosome 17 in asthma was further supported by both of the current studies, which replicated the previous findings in addition to identifying new variants associated with the disease.
