Nutrition in Pregnancy, Birth Weight, and Childhood Asthma
Not Provided

To evaluate the role of maternal diet and birth weight in the etiology of childhood asthma and other allergic disorders.

BACKGROUND:

Asthma is one of the most common chronic diseases diagnosed among children in the developed world, and its prevalence in western industrialized countries is increasing at an alarming rate. Little information is currently available regarding the role of maternal diet during pregnancy and birth weight in the risk of childhood asthma.

DESIGN NARRATIVE:

This longitudinal prospective study takes advantage of the resources provided by Project Viva, an ongoing prospective cohort study of pregnant women and their infant offspring among members of Harvard Pilgrim Health Care, a large managed care organization in New England. Data already available from Project Viva include detailed dietary data on mother and infant, along with data on anthropometric, social, environmental, demographic, economic, psychological, and lifestyle variables. The study will follow the Project Viva cohort until ages 3 to 4 years.
