slide8
DATA – HANDS-ON

Children in Focus – 4m-5y

Whole cohort – Annual clinics 7-15 years

Current status – 17 year clinic running

Multifaceted study of health, development and disease of children

slide9
FOCUS AT 7
  • Eight sessions of 20 min
  • Total clinic 2h 40min
  • Measures based on scientific priority (& cost)
  • 17+ clinic c.£3m
slide10
BIOLOGICAL SAMPLES

DNA maternal, cord & 7y venous blood; transformed cell lines in progress

DNA 10,000 mothers and children

C. 1,000 partners

Aim for 6,000 trios at end of current programme

Blood (most <5 y gone); later fasting blood for metabolic studies

Placentae, hair, teeth, urine (cotinine @ 8y and 15y)

slide11
ENVIRONMENT

Mostly questionnaire based; but dating back to pregnancy

Some small validation studies (NO2, salivary cortisols, etc.)

Modelling pollution exposures

Strengths: Diet (FFQ & diaries); Smoking; Pollution; Activity and body mass (accelerometers & DXA scans @ 9, 11, 13 years)

slide12
ASTHMA & ALLERGY

Questionnaire data on wheezing, asthma, eczema & hay fever from 6m-17y

Skin exam for eczema @ 5y (CiF) & 7y

SPTs and total serum IgE @ 7y

Spiro & BR methacholine @ 8y

Spiro & FeNO & BD reversibility @ 15y

slide13
GWAS – CURRENT STATUS

1,400 samples Illumina 317k (WTCCC)

1,250 asthma case:control Illumina 610k (GABRIEL II)

Expect asthma candidates on c.7,000 (GABRIEL Phase III)

Applying for genome wide typing of whole cohort (?????)
