[1] The age at asthma onset is the age defined in years when the participant was told by a physician that he/she has asthma. This was calculated by subtracting the participant’s age at the baseline visit (visit 1) from the number of years the participant reported to have known having asthma.
[2] Asthma duration is the number of years since the participant was told by a physician that he/she has asthma as reported at the baseline visit, visit 1.

BMI is a number calculated from a person’s height and weight that provides a reliable indicator of body fatness for most people. Higher values reflect greater amount of body fat. [1] In adults, a BMI less than 18.5 is underweight; 18.5 to 24.9 is a normal or healthy weight; greater than or equal to 25.0 is overweight. The height and weight was collected at baseline only.

[4] FEV1 is air volume exhaled in 1 second during spirometry. Asthma severity classification for trial: mild--pre-bronchodilator FEV1 ≥ 80% predicted requiring no/ low-moderate dose of inhaled glucocorticoids; moderate--pre-bronchodilator FEV1 <80% predicted requiring no/ low-moderate dose of inhaled glucocorticoids; severe--requiring high-dose inhaled glucocorticoids with/without continuous/near continuous oral glucocorticoids, or uncontrolled despite treatment. FEV1 percent of predicted value is FEV1 converted to a percentage of normal, based on height, weight, and race.
[5] FVC is a lung function test that measures the total amount of air exhaled. The percent of predicted value is FVC converted to a percentage of normal, based on height, weight, and race. Estimates of severity of abnormalities in flow volume measured by FVC: Mild-65-80% of predicted value; Moderate-50-65% of predicted value; Severe-<50% of predicted value.
[6]

The FEV1 (forced expiratory volume 1))/ FVC (forced vital capacity) ratio is used to evaluate airways obstructions since pure restrictive ventilatory defects cause an equal reduction in the FEV1 and the FVC. An FEV1/FVC ratio below 80% indicates airflow obstruction. Normal FEV1/FVC: 8 – 19 years of age=85%; 20-39 years of age=80%; 40- 59 years of age 75%; 60-80 years of age 70% [1]
