• Early postnatal nutrition after preterm birth and cardiometabolic risk factors in young adulthood 

      Suikkanen, Julia; Matinolli, Hanna-Maria; Eriksson, Johan G; Jarvenpaa, Anna-Liisa; Andersson, Sture; Kajantie, Eero; Hovi, Petteri (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Objectives Adults born preterm at very low birthweight (VLBW; <1500 g) have a non-optimal cardiometabolic risk factor profile. Since higher protein intake during the first weeks of life predicted a healthier body ...
    • Expiratory airflow in late adolescence and early adulthood in individuals born very preterm or with very low birthweight compared with controls born at term or with normal birthweight: a meta-analysis of individual participant data. 

      Doyle, Lex W.; Andersson, Sture; Bush, Andy; Cheong, Jeanie L.Y.; Clemm, Hege Synnøve Havstad; Evensen, Kari Anne Indredavik; Gough, Aisling; Halvorsen, Thomas; Hovi, Petteri; Kajantie, Eero Olavi; Lee, Katherine J.; McGarvey, Lorcan; Narang, Indra; Näsänen-Gilmore, Pieta; Steinshamn, Sigurd Loe; Vollsæter, Maria; Vrijlandt, Elianne J.L.E.; APIC, international network (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Maximal expiratory airflow peaks early in the third decade of life, then gradually declines with age. The pattern of airflow through adulthood for individuals born very preterm (at <32 weeks’ gestation) or ...
    • Lung function in adults born preterm 

      Nasanen-Gilmore, Pieta; Sipola-Leppänen, Marika; Tikanma Ki, Marjaana; Matinolli, Hanna-Maria; Eriksson, Johan G; Järvelin, Marjo-Riitta; Vaarasma Ki, Marja; Hovi, Petteri; Kajantie, Eero (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Very preterm birth, before the gestational age (GA) of 32 weeks, increases the risk of obstructed airflow in adulthood. We examined whether all preterm births (GA<37 weeks) are associated with poorer adult lung function ...
