Health Outcomes and Measures of the Environment

To analyze data through the Health Outcomes and Measures of the Environment (HOME) study, a prospective birth cohort of mothers and their children from Cincinnati, Ohio, who have been followed from the second trimester of pregnancy until the child is around 8 years old. A thousand human serum and 74 milk samples will be analyzed for persistent organic pollutants (POPs) and serum lipids, and measurements of polyfluoroalkyl chemicals (PFCs) in approximate 800 serum samples will be taken. The data will be essential to showing the levels of serum of POPs and PFCs in the HOME cohort at age 1, 2, 3 and 5 years of age.
