Prospective study of the impact of behaviour problems on the incidence and course of asthma symptoms (360G-Wellcome-091239_Z_10_Z)

A relationship between psychosocial factors and occurrence of symptoms and severity of asthma has recently been identified. There is still controversy about the relationship between asthma and a child's mental health, since the pathways through which this relationship is established are complex and not well researched. In particular the direction of causality has not been well established. This study aims to analyze the impact of behavior problems on development and course of asthma, comparing the baseline children's behavior profiles and results from an evaluation of asthma in two different later periods. It is a longitudinal study, in a cohort of 1362Brazilian children resident in the low-income urban area, participants of the project SCAALA - Social Changes Asthma and Allergy in Latin America, funded by the Welcome Trust as a Center of Excellence in Latin America.
