SUMC Research Team Publishes Findings in Environment International


A team of scientists led by Associate Professor Guo Pi from Shantou University Medical College Department of Preventive Medicine, recently published their latest research findings in a paper titled “Ambient air pollution and markers of fetal growth: a retrospective population-based cohort study of 2.57 million term singleton births in China” in the Environmental International (5-Year Impact Factor: 8.736). This research was a collaboration with Guangdong Women and Children Hospital in Guangzhou and Guangzhou Center for Disease and Prevention.

This retrospective population-based cohort study, based on data from 2,567,457 singleton term live-births from January 1, 2014 to December 31, 2017 across 123 Chinese districts and counties, unveiled the association of trimester-specific exposure to air pollution with risk of being born small for gestational age (SGA) and birth weight-markers of fetal growth-among Chinese term births.
