To our experts: The authors note that one of the study limitations is that the patient population included only young children with mild persistent asthma, and that acetaminophen could still exacerbate asthma in older subjects or those with more severe asthma. What is known about the genetic correlation for pediatric patients in predisposition for asthma? Are there any particular genes related to induction of pain and fever? To our experts, can you speculate on why the study findings might change for older subjects?
