    Asthma is a severe breathing disorder which effects the bronchial airways and makes it difficult to breath out. Many factors like increase in biochemical markers, environmental factors and genetic polymorphism can be associated with the onset of Asthma. The aim of this study is to determine whether IgE and antioxidant levels are associated with genetic polymorphisms of the ADAM33 gene (V4) in both healthy and asthmatic patients. Materials and methods: The study was conducted in 100 patients (70 asthmatic and 30 normal) at GK labs Srinagar J&K India. Results: In this study, we found that there is a significant correlation between IgE and antioxidant levels in asthma patients compared to controls in population of Jammu and Kashmir where there was an increase in IgE level and decrease in antioxidant level in addition to ADAM33(V4) gene polymorphism.
