A large study of Caucasian children has identified this SNP in the TBX21 gene (and one other, rs16947078) as defining a haplotype associated with increased risk for allergic asthma. [PMID 17949803]
The odds ratio associated with rs11650354(T;T) homozygotes compared to rs11650354(C;C) homozygotes for allergic asthma is reported to be 8.13 (CI: 2.5-26.9). Heterozygotes may be at slightly higher risk. [PMID 17949803]
