BACKGROUND Little is known about the role of xenobiotic-metabolizing gene variants as risk factors for small-for-gestational-age (SGA) births or as modifiers for the effects of exposures such as maternal smoking. METHODS We conducted 2 joint studies: a case-control design including 493 cases (birth weight below the 10th percentile according to gestational age and sex) and 472 controls (at or above the 10th percentile) and a family-based study (mother, father, and newborn) with approximately… CONTINUE READING
