RSV genetics

The two post-bronchiolitis cohorts from Kuopio have been followed-up until 18-19 and 27-28 years of age, respectively, the post-bronchiolitis cohort from Gothenburg until 17-18 years of age, and in 2014-2015, the post-bronchiolitis cohort from Tampere until 12-13 years of age. In addition, there is a large cohort of children with RSV infection in infancy, and a follow-up study will be arranged in 2014 at 12-13 years of age. Globally, the Finnish population is homogenous. All these cohorts have been well-studied in infancy, including viral studies, and the follow-up time is long. Therefore, the cohorts are optimal to study the genetics of RSV bronchiolitis and post-bronchiolitis.

Whole genome study including 700,000 single nucleotide polymorphisms has been done in the cohorts, and the analysis has started.
