The PIAMA-study is a large ongoing population-based cohort study with prenatal inclusion and follow-up until the current age of 18 years. The study was designed to investigate the influence of lifestyle and environment on the development of asthma, allergy and lung function. It therefore contains a detailed characterization of lifestyle and environmental exposures in all stages of childhood.

In the interest of transparancy and quality control, the data underlying the findings presented in published papers will be made available upon request. Requests can be submitted to the PIAMA Principal Investigators. The PIAMA data are not freely accessible in the public domain, because this would be in conflict with the agreement between the study team and the PIAMA participants.
