Abstract

Background: There is no consistent evidence that outdoor air pollutants are involved in the development of asthma. Objective: The aim of this study was to determine whether outdoor air pollutants derived from industrial processes were related to the prevalence of asthma, bronchial hyperresponsiveness, and atopy in exposed children. Methods: A total of 7,511 children from 7 to 12 years of age were recruited in the study. Eight hundred eighty-eight of 1,009 (88%) of the subjects living around industrial factories and 5,998 of 6,502 (92%) living in a lesspolluted neighboring area responded to the ISAAC questionnaire. A total of1,492 subjects 8 to 9 years old underwent skin prick tests for 11 common aeroallergens. A total of 732 of the subjects from 8 to 9 years of age underwent bronchial provocation tests with hypertonic saline (BPT-HS). Results: The prevalence of ever experiencing wheezing and wheeze during the last 12 months was 25.6%, and 18.8% among the children living in the morepolluted area. This was significantly higher than for those living in the less polluted area (14.2% and 9.0%, respectively). The positive rate of BPT-HS (the provocative dose of hypertonic saline causing 20% fall of FEV1 less than or equal to 23 mL) was higher among those in the more polluted area than in children living in the less polluted area (12.2% vs 7.5%). However,the rate of atopy based on the skin tests was the same in the two groups (28.3% vs 30.6%). Conclusions: The prevalence of asthma and bronchial hyperresponsiveness was higher among children living around the heavily industrial area compared with those living in the less polluted area, despite similar atopic sensitization.
