Pediatric asthma database and Biobank of the CHU Sainte-Justine

The Pediatric asthma database and Biobank of the CHU Sainte-Justine aims to improve health care services, management, and treatment offered to children with asthma and to identify the most pressing needs in research. It contains different information about the progress of the health status of children with asthma as well as on the use of health care services and medication for asthma and related problems. This information will be used to study the factors affecting the development and control of asthma and improve health services for asthmatic children.
