SNP Health Association Resource (SHARe) Asthma Resource Project (SHARP)
SNP Health Association Resource (SHARe) Asthma Resource project (SHARP) is conducting a genome-wide analysis in adults and children who have participated in National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute's clinical research trials on asthma. This includes 1041 children with asthma who participated in the Childhood Asthma Management Program (CAMP), 994 children who participated in one or five clinical trials conducted by the Childhood Asthma Research and Education (CARE) network, and 701 adults who participated in one of six clinical trials conducted by the Asthma Clinical Research Network (ACRN).
There are three study types. The longitudinal clinical trials can be subsetted for population-based and/or case-control analyses. Each of the childhood asthma studies has a majority of children participating as part of a parent-child trio. The ACRN (adult) studies are probands alone. Control genotypes will be provided for case-control analyses.
