Asthma is a poorly understood disease.
Risk factors are not established, and the natural history of the disease is unknown.
Using subjects of a community-based study, we have prospectively compared young adults destined to develop asthma with control subjects to determine differences between them before diagnosis.
Subjects were participants of the Tucson Epidemiologic Study of Airways Obstructive Disease.
They were studied between the ages of 15 and 19 and subsequently every 1 to 2 years until they were at least 21 years old with questionnaires, spirometry, allergy skin testing, and serum IgE testing.
