Initiatives -
Cardiovascular disease risk is associated with prenatal and infancy growth. However, the relative importance of these time periods remains uncertain. To elucidate this, the investigators tested in a very preterm cohort the effects of birth weight for gestational age and weight gain between birth and 3 mo post-term (early postnatal weight gain) and between 3 mo and 1 y post-term (late infancy weight gain) on the lipid profile and carotid intima-media thickness at age 19 years. *Note: All published information has been collected from the article referenced in the Marker Paper box below. Therefore, there may be variations with more advanced versions of the study.*
