Going forward, the researchers want to learn more about the causative link between secondhand smoke and the worsening of pediatric kidney disease, using this rich data-set, Ng says.

The Dayton Children's-Johns Hopkins study represents a significant contribution to understanding the adverse effects of secondhand smoke on children, says Karen Wilson, M.D., an associate professor of pediatrics at Children's Hospital Colorado and the University of Colorado-Denver. “Many people think that secondhand smoke is only associated with respiratory illness. So it is very helpful to have this data showing a strong association between secondhand smoke and kidney disease. It highlights some of the systemic effects of secondhand smoke exposure in addition to respiratory problems.

“Going forward, it will be important to continue to do research on the medical effects of secondhand smoke in kids because the physiology of all these may be similar,” Dr. Wilson says. Increasing the understanding of these effects “will help us better protect children, both by helping families quit smoking and also by finding treatments for children who have been exposed to secondhand smoke,” Dr. Wilson says.
