Key Features

• The Quebec Birth Cohort on Immunity and Health was originally set up to investigate the non-specific effects of Bacillus Calmette- Guerin (BCG) vaccination on the occurrence of selected autoimmune and inflammatory diseases and included 81 496 persons born in 1974, who were followed until 1994.

• The cohort was expanded to enable studying rarer diseases requiring a larger sample size and follow-up during adulthood. Assembled in 2017, the expanded Quebec Birth Cohort on Immunity and Health (CO-MMUNITY) includes 400 611 individuals born in 1970–74 in the province of Quebec, Canada, and followed until 2014; 2% of the cohort are deceased and 10% were potentially lost to follow-up.

• Administrative data acquired cover perinatal and sociodemographic information, BCG vaccination, medical services, hospitalizations for diabetes, lymphoma, multiple sclerosis, inflammatory bowel disease, asthma and other allergic diseases, prescription drugs and death if applicable.

• A nested case-control study on inflammatory bowel disease was conducted with 2728 participants.
