Abstract

Asthma is a heterogeneous disease with different outcomes. For children with asthma at the age of 7 years, 67-75% are symptom-free as adults. Data on the important link between childhood and adult asthma are sparse. We aimed to investigate factors associated with persistence of childhood asthma over three years of follow-up by linking data between Korea childhood Asthma Study (KAS) and their matched claims data from Health Insurance Review and Assessment Service (HIRA). We analyzed data from 450 preadolescent children aged 7 to 10 years and classified them into remission or persistence groups. Baseline clinical characteristics and exposure to air pollution materials including PM2.5 and PM10 during three years of follow-up were compared. The main outcome was asthma persistence which was defined as the presence of asthma episodes with healthcare utilization and prescription of asthma medications within three years after KAS enrollment. At the third year of follow-up, after stepwise regression analysis, lower age at enrollment (adjusted odds ratio (aOR): 0.79; 95% confidence interval (CI): 0.64-0.96), male sex (aOR: 1.66; 95%CI: 1.05-2.63), proximity from an air-polluting facility (aOR: 2.4; 95%CI: 1.34-4.29), higher level outdoor PM2.5 (aOR: 1.1; 95%CI: 1.02-1.20), and higher rate of doctor-diagnosed food allergy (FA) (aOR: 2.33; 95%CI: 1.06-5.12) were significantly associated with persistence. We discovered various independent risk factors for the persistence of childhood asthma. By linking HIRA claims data, we could clarify risk factors for persistence in a well-defined study population.

Attention Score in Context

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 07 January 2024.
All research outputs
#17,302,400
of 25,394,764 outputs
Outputs from Asian Pacific journal of allergy and immunology
#129
of 324 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#174,989
of 333,369 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Asian Pacific journal of allergy and immunology
#3
of 4 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 25,394,764 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 21st percentile – i.e., 21% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 324 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.4. This one is in the 45th percentile – i.e., 45% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 333,369 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 34th percentile – i.e., 34% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 4 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one.
