Abstract

AIM: To evaluate whether intrauterine growth retardation (IUGR) protects against the development of allergy. METHODS: A case-control study of 1515 subjects (15-25 y), of whom 430 were cases (birthweight/length below -2 SD for gestational age). Birth data were from the national birth register. The frequencies of allergic diseases were evaluated by questionnaire. RESULTS: For the 950 who replied, the frequencies of allergic diseases were similar in cases and controls. CONCLUSION: IUGR does not protect against the development of allergy.
