Mucosal immunization - cluster project

Objective

Risks associated with complex food contamition are difficult to assess, and especially developmental risks are of concern. A large birth cohort is therefore gathered in a fishing community with substantially increased exposures to seafood contaminants, including persistent halogenated compounds and methylmrcury. The exposures will be determined by advanced analyses of serum and milk. Early effects on the nervous system, the hormone system, and the immune system will be determines by the use of sensitive biomarkers. Some of the biomarker methods will be further developed before application. The results will provide information on
1) biomarker validity,
2) integrated risks causes by a mixed explosure, and
3) susceptibility of the foetus and neonatal child.
