Long term consequences of low birthweight on postnatal growth, adiposity and brain weight at maturity in sheep.

Abstract

Low birth weight (LBW) as a result of restricted fetal growth increases the risk for later metabolic diseases and adiposity. However the relationship between LBW and postnatal growth and adult body composition has not been fully investigated. We have used sheep to determine the effects of LBW on postnatal growth and body composition at maturity. LBW was… (More)
