Control of Allergic Rhinitis and Asthma Test


Control of Allergic Rhinitis and Asthma Test (CARAT).

CARAT is a brief self-administered questionnaire to quantify the degree of control of Allergic Rhinitis and Asthma.

The initial phases of development and validation of the CARAT questionnaire are available in two original papers: Respir Res 2009; Allergy 2010.

The development of CARAT involved the active participation of more than 100 Portuguese physicians and over 350 patients.

We care about children


The first questionnaire that assesses allergic rhinitis and asthma control in children from 6 to 12 years old.

Asthma and allergic rhinitis are often associated pathologies and the clinical state of one affects the clinical state of the other. Although their evaluation together is recommended, there was no questionnaire for this purpose.

CARAT Collaboration Network addressed this need. After developing an adult version, which is recommended by the World Health Organization’s ARIA initiative, we made this version specific for school-age children.
