Effects of prenatal alcohol consumption and alcohol metabolising genes on child growth and neurodevelopment in the ALSPAC study

This study commencing in March 2008 examined the effect of prenatal alcohol consumption (and polymorphisms of several of the genes coding for enzymes involved in alcohol metabolism) on child growth and neurodevelopment. We used an extended mendelian randomisation approach to examine the unconfounded effects of alcohol consumption on the fetus. The study used the well characterised ALSPAC cohort.
