Sexually dimorphic risk of obesity-associated asthma is posited to accelerate around puberty. Yet, the role of air pollution on the lean and obese asthmatic children has never been examined. To compare whether a unit exposure to airborne benzo[a]pyrene (B[a]P) is associated with altered risks of asthma across the overweight/obese (OV/OB) control, lean asthmatic, and OV/OB asthmatic children, respectively, compared to the lean controls, before and after adjusting for oxidant stress markers (i.e. 15‑F2t‑IsoP, 8‑oxo‑dG, and Carbonyl). Asthmatic and healthy control children, recruited from polluted urban and rural areas, were matched to ambient concentration of B[a]P. A unit increase in B[a]P and multinomial logistic regression on OV/OB control, lean asthmatic, and OV/OB asthma were compared across the sex- and age-groups. The median B[a]P was associated with a linear increase among the female children, according to OV/OB and asthma, respectively, and together, compared to the lean control girls (p = 0.001). While B[a]P was associated with positive relationship with 15‑F2t‑IsoP level among the OV/OB boys, the same exposure-outcome association was inverse among the OV/OB girls. One natural log-unit increase in ambient B[a]P was associated with 10.5-times greater odds (95% CI, 2.6–39.6; p = 0.001) the adolescent OV/OB boys, compared to the unit odds among the lean controls. In contrast, the adolescent OV/OB girls were associated with highest adjusted odds of the asthma (aOR = 15.4; 95% CI, 2.9–29.1; p < 0.001) compared to the lean control girls. An adjustment for 15‑F2t‑IsoP, and Carbonyls was associated with greater odds of asthma per unit exposure for the adolescent OV/OB girls (aOR = 16.2; 95% CI, 1.4–181.8; p = 0.024). B[a]P exposure was associated with a leap in the odds of asthma among the OV/OB adolescents, particularly the girls, after adjusting for 15‑F2t‑IsoP and Carbonyls.

Current studies of gene × air pollution interaction typically seek to identify unknown heritability of common complex illnesses arising from variability in the host's susceptibility to environmental pollutants of interest. Accordingly, a single component generalized linear models are often used to model the risk posed by an environmental exposure variable of interest in relation to a priori determined DNA variants. However, reducing the phenotypic heterogeneity may further optimize such approach, primarily represented by the modeled DNA variants. Here, we reduce phenotypic heterogeneity of asthma severity, and also identify single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP) associated with phenotype subgroups. Specifically, we first apply an unsupervised learning algorithm method and a non-parametric regression to find a biclustering structure of children according to their allergy and asthma severity. We then identify a set of SNPs most closely correlated with each sub-group. We subsequently fit a logistic regression model for each group against the healthy controls using benzo[a]pyrene (B[a]P) as a representative airborne carcinogen. Application of such approach in a case-control data set shows that SNP clustering may help to partly explain heterogeneity in children's asthma susceptibility in relation to ambient B[a]P concentration with greater efficiency.
