Asthma management failure in emergency department linked to genetic factors
from Pulmonology Advisor
Management failure in emergency departments in children with asthma has been associated with three single nucleotide polymorphisms, according to a study published in Pediatric Pulmonology. These genetic factors can supplement clinical predictors in assessing emergency cases in pediatric asthma. This prospective study included 491 children with moderate to acute asthma, all of whom were white and whose ages ranged between 1 and 17 years.
