Background Studies that investigated the association between the CC16 A38G polymorphism and the risk of asthma yielded conflicting results. The aim of this study among schoolchildren was to assess the relationships of CC16 A38G polymorphism with aeroallergen sensitization and fractional exhaled nitric oxide (FeNO), two outcomes predicting asthma later in life. Methods The study included 139 children (72 boys), median age of 7.7. Information on each child’s health, lifestyle, and environment was collected through a questionnaire completed by their parents. CC16 genotypes were determ…
