A recent study has been found that parent with asthma is likely to have a child with the same disease. According to researchers of the study, a child tends to have asthma if his or her same sex parent is also suffering with it.
The lead researchers of the study Professor Hasan Arshad is also specialist in allergy and immunology. Working at Southampton General Hospital, Prof. found that allergies are gender-related. Previously, it was thought that the allergies are passed to generation through hereditary. However, Prof. has overruled the previous belief.
Prof. was reported saying, "We have known for decades that allergy runs in the family. but we have discovered the inheritance is from mother to daughter and father to son". For the study, team of researchers examined as many as 1,456 patients with long term allergies.
During the study, it was found that a father with asthma is more likely to have a son with asthma. A same goes with mothers. However, a mother with asthma has least chances of having a son with asthma. The findings of the researchers have been published in the journal Allergy and Clinical Immunology. The study is one of its kind, which explores the cause behind the allergies in the generation.
