  Abstract BACKGROUND: Children and adults with asthma and impaired lung function have been reported to have low-grade systemic inflammation, but it is unknown whether this inflammation starts before symptoms and in particular whether low-grade inflammation is present in asymptomatic neonates with reduced lung function. OBJECTIVE: We sought to investigate the possible association between neonatal lung function and biomarkers of systemic inflammation. METHODS: Plasma levels of high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP), IL-1beta, IL-6, TNF-alpha, and CXCL8 (IL-8) were measured at age 6 months in 300 children of the Copenhagen Prospective Study on Asthma in Childhood2000 birth cohort who had completed neonatal lung function testing at age 4 weeks. Associations between neonatal lung function indices and inflammatory biomarkers were investigated by conventional statistics and unsupervised principal component analysis. RESULTS: The neonatal forced expiratory volume at 0.5 seconds was inversely associated with hs-CRP (beta-coefficient, -0.12; 95% CI, -0.21 to -0.04; P < .01) and IL-6 (beta-coefficient, -0.10; 95% CI, -0.18 to -0.01; P = .03) levels. The multivariate principal component analysis approach, including hs-CRP, IL-6, TNF-alpha, and CXCL8, confirmed a uniform upregulated inflammatory profile in children with reduced forced expiratory volume at 0.5 seconds (P = .02). Adjusting for body mass index at birth, maternal smoking, older children in the home, neonatal bacterial airway colonization, infections 14 days before, and asthmatic symptoms, as well as virus-induced wheezing, at any time before biomarker assessment at age 6 months did not affect the associations. CONCLUSION: Diminished neonatal lung function is associated with upregulated systemic inflammatory markers, such as hs-CRP.
