It has been shown that a reduction of air pollution is associated with a lower prevalence of bronchitis and bronchitic symptoms.
2006) found that the presence of dogs in homes increased the effect of ambient pollutants on bronchitic symptoms in asthmatic children not assessed for specific sensitization.
However, bronchitic symptoms are a sensitive end point for air pollution effects in population- based studies of children (Braun- Fahrlander et al.
The primary outcome of interest was the period prevalence of bronchitic symptoms, defined as having any one of the following: a) a cough first thing in the morning or b) at other times of day that lasted for as much as 3 months in a row during the previous 12 months; c) other than with colds, a child who usually seems congested in the chest or brings up phlegm; or d) a report of bronchitis during the previous 12 months.
We examined the effect of the yearly variability in air pollution levels on bronchitic symptoms, and we examined effect modification by dog and cat ownership and other covariates.
These represent the dog stratum-specific effect on bronchitic symptoms of the yearly variation in air pollutants within communities.
Finally, we previously evaluated the main effects of between-community 4-year average pollutant levels on bronchitic symptoms in these children (McConnell et al.
Among study participants, 184 (39%) had bronchitic symptoms during the first year they contributed to the analysis.
After adjusting for the interaction of dog with the temporal (within-community) variability in each pollutant, there was no modification of the effect of between-community pollutants on bronchitic symptoms (results not tabulated).
We have shown that air pollution is related to bronchitic symptoms and that asthmatics are more likely to be affected than nonasthmatics.
