BACKGROUND Little is known about whether patterns of early growth are associated with altered respiratory and immune development. This study relates prenatal and infant growth patterns to wheeze and atopy at age 3 years. METHODS Birth weight and length were measured in 1548 children born at term.

Conditional postnatal growth velocities were calculated from infant weight… CONTINUE READING
