Brief Summary:
The NOVEL Observational longiTudinal studY (NOVELTY) is an observational study of obstructive lung disease and is a multi-country, multi-centre, prospective, longitudinal cohort study which will recruit patients with a diagnosis, or suspected diagnosis, of asthma and/or Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). Patients will undergo clinical assessments and receive standard medical care as determined by their treating physician. Patients enrolled in NOVELTY will be followed up yearly by their treating physician for a total duration of three years. In addition, patients will be followed up remotely every 3 months. The NOVELTY study will collect data currently lacking to allow for multinational data collection to fill regional/local gaps and improve comparability across regions.

Biospecimen Retention:   Samples With DNA
Biomarkers from blood samples including assessment of haematology and collection for storage of serum, plasma, deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA), ribonucleic acid (RNA) and urine samples. Collection of blood and urine samples is optional and will be covered in a separate section of the informed consent form.

Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Sampling Method:   Probability Sample
Study Population
Patients with suspected or primary diagnosis of asthma and with suspected or primary diagnosis of COPD will be enrolled by a diverse set of physicians (e.g. primary care physicians, allergists, pulmonologists) from community and hospital outpatient settings.

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Diagnosis, or suspected diagnosis, of asthma and/or COPD, according to clinician's judgment
  • Age: 12 years or older (note: in most countries it will only be feasible to include patients aged 18 years or older)
  • Willing and able to sign written, informed consent (or having a responsible, legally authorised representative acting on patient's behalf)
  • Enrolment from an active clinical practice

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Patients who participated in any respiratory interventional trial during the 12 months prior to enrolment or at enrolment
  • Patients who, in the opinion of the physician, are unlikely to complete 3 years of follow-up, e.g. poor literacy, substance abuse, life-threatening co-morbidity
  • Patients whose primary respiratory diagnosis (i.e. the condition causing most of their respiratory symptoms) is not asthma or COPD (however, a co-diagnosis of another respiratory disease such as bronchiectasis or interstitial lung disease together with asthma or COPD will be accepted)

In addition, the following are considered criteria for exclusion from the exploratory genetic research (donation of blood for DNA and RNA analysis)

  • Previous allogeneic bone marrow transplant
  • Non-leukocyte depleted whole blood transfusion within 120 days of the date of the genetic sample collection
