The American Lung Association (ALA) Lung Health Cohort

Primary Objective

1) Determine whether modifiable exposures and risk factors (lifetime air pollution, potentially noxious inhalational exposures such as marijuana and e-cigarettes, reduced physical activity) are associated with lower lung function and greater burden of respiratory symptoms in young adults; (2) Determine whether CT-measurements of small airway and parenchymal lung abnormalities are associated with lower lung function and greater burden of respiratory symptoms in young adults; (3) Determine the association between the nasal respiratory epithelial transcriptome and selected blood biomarkers, CT measured small airway abnormality and parenchymal lung abnormalities in young adults.
