  1. The effect estimate was log transformed and presented with a 95% confidence interval.
  2. Subjects using inhaled corticosteroids or oral anti-leukotrienes on a daily basis were excluded from the analysis.
  3. * Adjusted for gender, age, height, FEV1 and smoking history but not adjusted for the variables in the table
  4. ** Adjusted both for the variables in the table and gender, age, height, FEV1 and smoking history
