INTRODUCTION: Aspirin-intolerant asthma (AIA), a major clinical presentation of aspirin hypersensitivity, affects 10% of adult asthmatics. The genetic risk factors involved in the susceptibility to AIA have recently been investigated, but multilocus single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) associated with this susceptibility has not been evaluated.

METHODS: We examined 246 asthmatic patients: 94 having aspirin intolerance and 152 having aspirin tolerance. We selected 23 SNPs of 13 candidate genes and genotyped each SNP using a primer extension method. Multilocus genetic interactions were examined using multifactor dimensionality reduction (MDR) to test all multilocus SNP combinations to identify a useful SNP set for predicting the AIA phenotype.

RESULTS: We identified the best model using the MDR method, which consisted of a four-locus gene-gene interaction with 65.16% balanced accuracy and a cross-validation consistency of 70% in predicting AIA disease risk among asthmatic patients. This model included four SNPs such as B2ADR 46A>G, CCR3-520T>G, CysLTR1-634C>T, and FCER1B-109T>C.

DISCUSSION: These results suggest that a multilocus SNP acts in combination to influence the susceptibility to aspirin intolerance in asthmatics and could be a useful genetic marker for the diagnosis of AIA.
