PERINATAL EXPOSURE TO HOUSEHOLD AND ENVIRONMENTAL TOXINS AND THE RISK OF ASTHMA AND ALLERGIC DISEASE UP TO 25 YEARS
Grant number: 1145174 | Funding period: 2018 - 2021
Perinatal exposure to household and environmental toxins may increase asthma and allergic disease risk. Adverse exposures in this critical developmental window may have a marked and prolonged effect on health. A birth cohort of high-allergy risk children will be used to investigate the effect of common chemical exposures on the risk of asthma and allergic disease up to 25 years. This evidence could be used to inform guidelines on common household chemical exposures
