Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To recruit and characterize a cohort of subjects with asthma who reside in a high pollution, high asthma risk neighborhood [ Time Frame: five yeARS ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Biospecimen Retention:   Samples With DNA

The total amount of blood drawn is approximately 5 tablespoons (75 ml). The blood sample will be processed to isolate "genetic material" (mainly DNA, RNA and protein). This genetic material will be used to try to identify the "genetic factors" or genes that a person inherits that make him or her more likely to develop asthma. The blood is used to test for allergies to weeds, trees, insects and molds (RAST) and a complete blood count.


Estimated Enrollment: 2000
Study Start Date: April 2002
Estimated Primary Completion Date: January 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   Yes
Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample
Study Population

All individuals approached for participation in the Research Registry shall be able to read or comprehend English. Since participation in the Research Registry does not involve a risk of physical harm, women of childbearing potential will not be queried as to pregnancy status or tested for pregnancy unless they are requested to undergo a methacholine challenge test. There are no additional inclusion/exclusion criteria.

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Ages 18 and above

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Greater than 10 pack year tobacco history
  • Lung diseases other than asthma
