    BACKGROUND: Recent increases in the prevalence of asthma and atopy emphasise the need for devising effective methods for primary prevention in children at high risk of atopy. METHOD: A birth cohort of genetically at risk infants was recruited in 1990 to a randomised controlled study. Allergen...

    In the present cohort, 85% of infants hospitalized for wheezing outgrew their symptoms until puberty, but 30-40% had asthma, depending on criteria, again in young adulthood. The aim of this study was to determine early predictors for adulthood asthma, bronchial reactivity, and lung function...
