Antihistamines are the first-line treatment for chronic urticaria (CU). However, some CU patients are relatively refractory to antihistamines. The mechanism underlying the interindividual variation is still unknown. The α-chain of the high-affinity IgE receptor is crucial to the IgE-mediated allergic response. The present study is to investigate whether FCER1A polymorphisms ...
