We studied associations between perinatal risk factors and bacterial richness of the commensal milieu in the neonatal respiratory tract. Methods: Three hundred and twenty-eight children from the Copenhagen Prospective Studies on Asthma in the Childhood2000 (COPSAC2000) at-ri...

Asthma and allergic rhinitis (AR) are frequently associated. The objective of the treatment of asthma and AR should be the control of symptoms and disease progression. Therefore, the combined measurement of disease control is desirable. In this regard, a questionnaire able to together assess asthma and AR control has been validated: the CARAT (Control of Allergic Rhinitis and Asthma Test). A further pediatric version (CARATkids) has been generated. The current real-world study used different dis...

Thus, this study aimed to investigate the relationship of AST with depressive symptoms and its sex as well as age difference among early adolescents from Shanghai urban areas, China. Methods: 6478 adolescents (mean age = 13.6) in urban ...

Additionally, an investigation of stages of change regarding pain characteristics and treatment outcomes was undertaken. In Study 1, the data of adolescents aged 11 to 18 years and their parents were collected prior to intake (N = 501) ...

While great strides have been made in improving childhood mortality, millions of children die each year with significant health-related suffering. More than 98% of these children live in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). Efforts have been made to increase access to pediatric palliative care (PPC) services to address this suffering in LMICs through policy measures, educational initiatives, and access to essential medicines. However, a core component of high-quality PPC that has been relat...

Both allergic and non-allergic asthma phenotypes are thought to vary by specific housing and other indoor environmental conditions. This study evaluated risk factors for allergic asthma phenotypes in First Nation children, an understudied Canadian population with recognized increased respiratory morbidity. We conducted a cross-sectional survey with a clinical component to assess the respiratory health of 351 school-age children living on two rural reserve communities. Asthma was defined as paren...
