We previously demonstrated that the proliferative response to lipopolysaccharide (LPS) in cord blood mononuclear cells (CBMCs) is negatively correlated with the induced expression of interleukin (IL)-4. Our aim, therefore, was to examine whether an impaired cellular response to LPS in infancy is associated with the risk for asthma.
