Preconception exposure to over-the-counter medications and antibiotics and the risk of childhood asthma in Lebanon: A cross-sectional study.
The findings showed that the intake of paracetamol, vitamin C, and PPIs during pregnancy is strongly correlated with asthma in the offspring and is necessary to raise awareness among healthcare professionals to reduce the prevalence of asthma in children. Expand
Human Comfort in Indoor Environment: A Review on Assessment Criteria, Data Collection and Data Analysis Methods
A literature review on the previous research contributions towards studying various aspects of human comfort with a special focus on the respective assessment criteria, data collection methods and data analysis approaches employed by former studies is presented. Expand
Association between Caregiver Exposure to Toxics during Pregnancy and Childhood-onset Asthma: A Case-control Study.
It is concluded that asthma may originate from the environmental exposure to toxics such as pesticides and tobacco (cigarettes and WP) or to alcohol and prescribed medications during pregnancy and lactation and spreading awareness by health professionals about these preventable causes can help educate the parents and children to prevent asthma and its exacerbation.
