Exposure to tobacco smoke during pregnancy will contribute to the severity of asthma in their children, according to a study conducted on March 5, 2018.

Recent study reveals that maternal smoking during pregnancy increases the severity of asthma and leads to poor lung function in their children. There were few studies conducted to analyze the contribution of exposure to secondhand smoking during pregnancy or the ongoing exposure to secondhand smoking on children’s lung function. The studies showed that children were exposed to both the conditions.

The connection between lung function and type of secondhand smoke exposure was analyzed by the researchers and for this, 2,070 children between the ages of 6 to 11 were included in the study. As part of the study, spirometry was used to measure their lung function and through levels of cotinine in the blood, exposure to tobacco smoking was also assessed. This analysis helped the researchers to differentiate between exposure to smoking during pregnancy and current secondhand exposure to smoking.

Children with and without asthma showed weak functioning of their lungs. Dr. Whittaker Brown said, “Maternal smoking in pregnancy may set children with asthma on a trajectory of poor lung function in later childhood, and other studies suggest this effect may be lifelong. Repeated studies into this relationship are needed.”  Respiratory symptoms in children are increasing due to tobacco smoke exposure. In general, there is a decrease in the tobacco exposure as regulations are imposed on public smoking. However, tobacco smoke exposure is still observed to be high in children.

This study, which talks about severity of asthma due to tobacco smoke exposure during pregnancy, will increase the growth of allergy diagnostic and treatment market, as detailed in the allergy diagnostic and treatment market report published by Coherent Market Insights.
