    Discovering Causes Through
           Bio-Research

• California Birth Defects Monitoring Program
  banks blood samples on 100,000 pregnant
  women per year.

• As of June 2006, we have banked 290,000
  pregnant women’s blood samples.
    Discovering Causes Through
           Bio-Research

• Each sample is split into two serum specimens
  stored at -70°C and one clot stored at -20°C.

• Samples are banked at Long Beach Memorial
  Medical Center, Long Beach, California.
    Discovering Causes Through
           Bio-Research

• Pregnancy blood samples are collected between
  15-19 weeks
• Urban, rural, multi-racial and socioeconomically
  diverse population
    Discovering Causes Through
           Bio-Research
• Childhood diseases that can be studied
  with blood samples:

  Birth defects        Prematurity
  Mental retardation   Childhood cancer
  Low birth weight     Autism
    Discovering Causes Through
           Bio-Research
• Risk factors that can be studied with blood
  samples:

   Medications         Diet
   Infections          Lifestyle
   Chemicals           Genetic
                           Pregnancy Blood Samples

               Summary


• We need to find causes of children’s
  diseases
               Summary


• We need to find prenatal antecedents of
  adult diseases
                Summary


• To do this we need to link birth certificate
  data with pregnancy blood samples and
  health outcomes among children and
  adults
