INMA - Environment and Childhood Project

Duration
2004-Present
Coordinator
Jordi Sunyer Deu (ISGlobal)

"Urban air pollution, water pollution resulting from its disinfection residues and agricultural and industrial residues that are incorporated by food and water, in addition to the effects of heat waves, are current environmental challenges. The first three challenges are included amongst the objectives of the INMA network. Over the course of this year, INMA has initiated visits to the children participating in the study, who are now 4 years old.

The objectives of INMA are:

• to describe prenatal and postnatal exposure to common contaminants (air and water) and internal dose of xenobiotics

• to measure its association with reproductive disorders and intrauterine and childhood neuro-immuno-endocrine development

• to assess the modifying role of diet, breastfeeding and certain genetic polymorphisms that can protect the child from the effect of the environment.

The Sabadell cohort has recruited 657 pregnant women and 635 newborns.
