Description:

Both heredity and environmental factors influence childrens' risk for developing respiratory and allergy related diseases, but how these factors influence the age of onset and the prognosis is little studied. It is also unknown which factors determine whether these diseases disappear in the childhood years, if they remain mild or worsen. An integrated database where lifestyle and allergic diseases are studied from birth through adolescence is lacking both nationally and internationally.

From 1994 to 1996 a little more than 4,000 children were borne in certain pre-selected areas of Stockholm County. They have been followed repeatedly with questionnaires and surveys (at 0, 1, 2, 4, 8 and 12 years of age) as part of the so-called BAMSE project. In the last follow-up the response rate was 82% compared to baseline.

Now, when the youths have reached the age 16 years, a resource-intensive data collection has started, including studies of weight, height, blood pressure, lung function tests, patch tests and blood tests (complete blood count, allergy levels and genetics, and nasal lavage). A larger da
