Asthma is the most common chronic childhood disease in developed nations [ 1], affecting more than 155 million individuals. The cost of treating the disease in the USA alone approximates 6 billion dollars per annum [ 2]. Asthma is a complex disease that has proven extremely difficult to dissect genetically [ 3]. Considerable effort is currently being expended in attempts to detect genetic loci contributing to asthma susceptibility [ 4–7], with the ultimate goal of improving preventive strategies, diagnostic tools and therapies. However, no specific major gene exhibiting functional effects has been mapped to date.
