    Asthma and allergic diseases are believed to be complex genetic diseases which may result from the interaction of multiple genetic factors and environmental stimuli. In past decades, great efforts have been exerted in unraveling their genetic basis. The strategies in discovering genes and genetic variants, confirming their importance in pathogenesis of asthma and allergic diseases, as well as Cited by: cancer-causing genes activated oncogenes can be inherited or acquired when cell that possesses this activated oncogene undergoes transcription, the RNA will carry the defective message of the activated oncogene onto the ribosomes-->the ribosomes, in turn will synthesize defective proteins called oncoproteins-->these defective oncoproteins will direct the cell to undergo uncontrolled.

    Allergic Diseases New Insights. Allergic diseases, are a number of conditions caused by hypersensitivity of the immune system to something in the environment that usually causes little problem in most people. The chapters included in the book Allergic diseases - New Insights addressed a variety of important topics related to distinct aspects.   This large-scale genome-wide association analysis of subjects with asthma, hay fever or eczema provides insights into the shared genetic basis of Cited by:

    Since the first edition of this highly acclaimed text was published in , much new knowledge has been gained about the role of genetic factors in common adult diseases, and we now have a better understanding of the molecular processes involved in genetic susceptibility and diseases mechanisms. The second edition fully incorporates these advances. The entire book has been updated and twelve. Allergies are abnormal immune system reactions to things that are typically harmless to most people. When a person is allergic to something, the immune system mistakenly believes that this substance is harming the body. Substances that cause allergic reactions — such as some foods, dust, plant pollen, or medicines — are known as allergens.

In persons with allergic diasthesis various allergic diseases are often involved. The Immunologic Basis of Allergic Diseases I. The Immune System – Protecting the Host. The human immune system has been designed to protect the integrity of the host by maintaining the healthy “status quo” called homeostasis.

When this homeostatic mechanism is disturbed through challenge by foreign invaders or altered self tissue (e.g. The heritability of allergic disease. InHenry Hyde Salter, in his magnus opus, On Asthma: Its Pathology and Treatment, wrote, “Is asthma hereditary?I think there can be no doubt that it is.” 1 Subsequent to this, many studies have now conclusively shown that susceptibility to asthma and other allergic diseases has a heritable component.
