Are asymptomatic airway hyperresponsiveness and allergy risk factors for asthma? A longitudinal study
Airway hyperresponsiveness (AHR) is a characteristic feature of asthma, but it is unclear whether asymptomatic AHR is associated with a higher risk of asthma. The present study assessed whether there is an association between asymptomatic AHR in adolescence and asthma in adulthood.
