Chest illness in infancy and chronic respiratory disease in later life : an analysis by month of birth.
Cohorts born at different times to year differ in their risk of exposure to seasonal respiratory infections in early life, but are likely to have similar socioeconomic status and lifestyle thereafter.
We investigated the long-term consequences of acute chest illness in infancy for later development of chronic respiratory disease by analysing variations by month of birth in hospital admissions for respiratory illness (total n=49 866), chronic respiratory symptoms and ventilatory function among British school children (n=11 482) and middle-aged adults (total n=55 829).
