Study data were collected and managed using REDCap electronic data capture tools[1] hosted at Integrative Computational BioScience Center, Mahidol University. REDCap (Research Electronic Data Capture) is a secure, web-based application designed to support data capture for research studies, providing: 1) an intuitive interface for validated data entry; 2) audit trails for tracking data manipulation and export procedures; 3) automated export procedures for seamless data downloads to common statistical packages; and 4) procedures for importing data from external sources.


REDCap at Mahidol University is supported by grants awarded to the Integrative Computational BioScience Center (ICBS) at Mahidol University by the Crown Property Bureau Foundation of Thailand and Mahidol University.
