5-lipoxygenase Gene Polymorphisms and Their Use in Classifying Patients: Patented by Jeffrey M. Drazen, Kwang-Ho In, Koichiro Asano, David Beier and James Grobholz on April 29, 1997. Abstract: The present invention provides identification of sequence polymorphisms in the 5-lipoxygenase gene that are present in general and asthmatic populations. The invention provides methods associated with correlating such polymorphisms with asthmatic phenotype and responsiveness to therapy. In particular, the invention demonstrates that individuals with reduced 5-lipoxygenase expression (or activity) are less responsive to treatment with 5-lipoxygenase inhibitors.
