Dr Casper Tidemandsen (Copenhagen University Hospital, Denmark) explained that there appears to be a stronger association between early-onset and/or uncontrolled asthma and (repeated) pregnancy loss compared with later-onset cohorts and controlled asthma, respectively. The aim of this nationwide study was to investigate whether increased/repeated pregnancy loss in asthma was associated with the age of onset (early-onset: 6-15 y; adult-onset: 16–39 y; late-onset: 40–45 y); i.e. onset of asthma before or during the fertile age.
