Can We Predict Childhood Asthma Earlier?

Predicting and appropriately diagnosing early childhood asthma is still a challenge, particularly with some "conventional wisdom" that diagnosing under 5 is too early. Can we arrive at a set of criteria where treatment is indicated? Health care providers needs tools to help direct us when early intervention is needed.  Predictive scores like the Pediatric Asthma Risk Score may bring us closer to the mark. Dr. Susarla

A new quantitative personalized tool to predict asthma development in young children predicted asthma development reliably according to results of a study published in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology.
Data from the Cincinnati Childhood Allergy and Air Pollution Study, a birth cohort of infants born to atopic parents between 2001 and 2003 in Cincinnati, Ohio, and Northern Kentucky was used to develop a quantitative personalized tool called The Pediatric Asthma Risk Score to predict asthma development in young children. The sensitivity and specificity of the Pediatric Asthma Risk Score were compared with those of the Asthma Predictive Index in the Isle of Wight study, which was a United Kingdom whole population birth cohort study.
