New paper: FUT2 in the ALSPAC Cohort
Dr. Azad visited the ALSPAC Cohort earlier this year and completed a research project on FUT2 secretor status and maternal health conditions. The study was published this week in Wellcome Open Research: https://wellcomeopenresearch.org/articles/3-65/v2. This study of over 7500 pregnant women shows that FUT2 non-secretors have an increased risk of mumps infection and kidney disease. We are following up on this project to study the impact and interaction of secretor status and breastfeeding in the development of chronic diseases in ALSPAC children.
