    EDITOR,—M R Hill and colleagues report the association between a variant of the gene for the β chain of the high affinity receptor for IgE (Fc(epsilon)RI-β) with the Leu 181/Leu 183 polymorphism and atopy in an Australian population.1 They suggest that polymorphism in Fc(epsilon)RI-β is one factor …
