Abstract

Asthmatic families (AFs) and normal families (NFs) were studied to determine the relationship between bronchial hyperresponsiveness and α1-antitrypsin protease inhibitor phenotype. We studied IgE levels, skin test scores, and methacholine sensitivity. In both the AF and NF groups, the subjects with the MS phenotype had significantly greater methacholine-induced bronchial hyperresponsiveness sensitivity than the MM and MZ subjects. These findings suggest that the S allele may be associated with bronchial hyperresponsiveness.
