Naturally controlled experiments may reveal novel disease predictors from infancy

The ‘Developmental Origins of Health and Disease’ (DOHaD) concept arose from findings more than 30 years ago that low birth weight is predictive of later risk for certain diseases. Since then, research has confirmed that our health and risk of disease throughout life are linked to conditions during the periconceptual period. This is relatively robust and repeatable across species although human studies are fewer given the practical difficulties of experimentation. DohART-NET is training a new cohort of DOHaD researchers through evaluation of links between parents’ periconceptual ‘environment’ (for example their health, chemical stressors or stress) and their babies’ health. The studies are strengthened by inclusion of so-called test-tube babies, one of the best-defined groups in this critical time period.
