Clinical Characteristics of Allergy, Autoimmune and Rheumatic Diseases: A Ten Year Retrospective Study

This study is currently recruiting participants. (see Contacts and Locations)

ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT01611636
First received: May 26, 2012
Last updated: February 19, 2014
Last verified: February 2014
  Purpose

The incidence and prevalence of the allergic, autoimmune and rheumatic diseases are different all over the world. The relative impact of gene and environment on diseases can be revealed by studies from different populations. National Health Insurance database in Taiwan provides a wealth of epidemiology study, which can contribute to the understanding of these diseases. However, national health care database did not contain test results and clinical details. The database of the hospital records can provide complimentary clinical details. Via the comparison of databases of the National health Institutes and the investigators hospital, the investigators hope that the characteristics and outcomes of these patients can be better understood.

Detailed Description:

The incidence and prevalence of the allergic, autoimmune and rheumatic diseases are different all over the world. The relative impact of gene and environment on diseases can be revealed by studies from different populations.

National Health Insurance database in Taiwan provides a wealth of epidemiology study, which can contribute to the understanding of these diseases. However, national health care database did not contain test results and clinical details. The database of the hospital records can provide complimentary clinical details. Via the comparison of databases of the National health Institutes and the investigators hospital, the investigators hope that the characteristics and outcomes of these patients can be better understood.

Briefly, epidemiology of target disease such as age, sex, incidence and prevalence will be derived from national database. Medical source utilization such as medication and surgery related to target diseases is also available in national database, providing material for cost analysis. These data can be compared with hospital database to ensure validity and reliability.

The investigators study is intended to provide epidemiology of target disease and cost analysis. Interaction between diseases will also be explored.
