Brief description While many children grow out of their asthma a significant number continue to have asthma in later life. The Raine community birth cohort has followed newborn infants from birth and has contributed to our understanding of how asthma develops throughout childhood. The proposed project aims to assess those factors that contribute to the persistence of asthma throughout childhood in into early adult life in the as well as investigate the predictors of adult onset asthma at 23 years of age.
