Abstract

Background

The potential for prenatal antibiotic exposure to influence asthma risk is not clear. We aim to determine the effect of timing, dose, and spectrum of prenatal antibiotic exposure on the risk of childhood asthma.

Methods

We conducted a population-based cohort study of 84,214 mother-child dyads to examine the association of prenatal antibiotic exposure and childhood asthma using multivariable logistic regression models.
