IL: interleukin; IFN-γ: interferon-γ; sICAM: soluble Intercellular Adhesion Molecule; CCL-11: Eotaxin; FeNO: Fractional exhaled Nitric Oxide; OR: odds ratio; 95% CI: 95% confidence interval; Ref.: reference category. Analysis adjusted for gender atopy, eczema, previous inhaled corticosteroids use, asthma first relative, smoking exposure, and season of measurement. The transient wheeze group is the reference group. Due to violation of linearity assumption in log transformation, results for total symptom score are split up into three equal categories.
