We determined the prevalence of GSTP1-Ile105 and GSTP1-Val105 alleles in patients with bronchial asthma and atopic dermatitis and healthy children of 2 groups (randomized and nonatopic control). The GSTP1-Ile105/Val105 genotype determines the resistance to atopic dermatitis (odds ratio=0.51; 95% confidence interval: 0.28-0.92; p=0.023). However, both homozygotes are at high risk of developing atopic dermatitis (near-significant differences).
