Sammanfattning : Children born small for gestational age (SGA) run increased risk of perinatal morbidity and mortality, but also of long-term health impairment. Risks on long term may vary depending on postnatal growth patterns. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The purposes of the thesis were to study associations between size at birth, short adult stature and risks of subnormal intellectual performance, high blood pressure, and overweight among males, and to study associations between size at birth, short adult stature and risk of overweight and giving birth to small for gestational age (SGA) infants among females.The effect of short adult stature on intellectual performance among males was analyzed in two population-based cohort studies.

Sammanfattning : The studies were undertaken to evaluate risk factors and outcomes in small-for-gestational-age (SGA) births, in cohort studies using the population-based Swedish Birth, Twin and Education Registers. A cohort study of pregnant women from Uppsala County evaluated the effect on birthweight by caffeine. LÄS MER
4. Neuropsychological consequences at young adult age after cardio-pulmonary resuscitation at birth or being born small-for-gestational age
Sammanfattning : The main objective of this thesis was to investigate whether infants resuscitated at birth because of presumed birth asphyxia or born small-for-gestational age without evidence of neurodevelopmental deviations in early childhood, may express cognitive deficits in adulthood when the demands of cognitive and social adaptation increase. Methods: A long-term follow-up was carried out in a group of young adults (n=70), 19-28 years of age, born at Sahlgrens Hospital, Göteborg between 1969 and 1978, requiring cardio-pulmonary resuscitation at birth with a mild or moderate clinical course or born small-for-gestational age (SGA).

5. Sex steroids, IGF-I, and vascular morphology from birth to adulthood in individuals born small for gestational age
Sammanfattning : Abstract Aim: To study whether there is an association between size at birth, sex steroids, IGF-I, and retinal vascular morphology. Patients and methods: Two different cohorts were studied. In paper I, 25 young adult men born small for gestational age (SGA) were compared to 44 young adult men born appropriate for gestational age (AGA). LÄS MER
