The maternal effect on childhood asthma - project description

Published Updated

The background for this project is that the risk of asthma in children is higher when the mother has asthma than when the father has asthma.


Summary

The background for this project is that the risk of asthma in children is higher when the mother has asthma than when the father has asthma.

Abstract:

So far no one has been able to explain the reason for this. If we find the cause of this inequality, it will be important for further research, and it may also be directly relevant to prevention. We will use Norwegian health registries and data from a large health study, the Norwegian Mother, Father and Child Study (MoBa) to test several hypotheses related to genes and the environment to understand the connection. We are concerned about exposures during pregnancy that may affect fetal development. The project has three main themes: A - to calculate maternal genetic effects with family data, B - to use molecular genetic methods, and C - to use data on environmental exposures during pregnancy.
