Developmental Impact of Nicu Expousures
The study is focused on neonatal intensive care unit (NICU).The objectives of the study are: 1. (UG3) will use existing NICU datasets and biorepositories to determine specific routes and sources of phthalate exposure. 2. Measure the impact of NICU-based phthalate exposure on multisystem health outcomes at ages 3-10. (UG3/UH3) examines associations among urine biomarkers of NICU phthalate exposure and childhood measures of pulmonary function, cognitive, motor, and behavioral performance, growth and pubertal development. 3. Determine the impact of and interactions among early childhood phthalate, manganese, lead and stress exposures on neurodevelopmental outcomes in preterm and term children. (UH3) uses tooth, hair and saliva biomarkers of exposures to investigate neurobehavioral development in children born preterm and at term.
