Few studies have followed their study population into adulthood. The prevalence rates of any dispensed anti-inflammatory medication or any asthma medication at 15 years of age were 4. Logistic regression was used to test hypotheses, with adjustment for multiple socioeconomic and perinatal indicators. Degree of immaturity, expressed as completed gestational weeks at birth, had an inverse dose-response relationship with ICS use. Another, important public health message from this thesis is that vaccination against pertussis in early childhood can be considered safe with respect to the long-term development of asthma.
It may include eg previous versions that are now no longer available.
The type of vaccine or vaccine schedule did not affect the outcome. Similar ORs were found after per-protocol analysis. Childhood immunization may play a causal role in the development of asthma. Cord blood IgE, however, did not predict the risk of asthma in adults. Braback, Hartmut Vogt and A.
