After more than ten years of work, together with a group of 300 experts from all over the world, José Villar, the world's largest development and growth general of over two years of doctors in Argentina, came to the pages of the prestigious newspaper. Nature.
The works were carried out at the University of Oxford, where Villar, specializing in obstetrics, gynecology and perinatology, is a lecturer and researcher in Newborn Medicine for two decades and As a result, pediatricians will "measure" their child's growth and comprehensive development. This, in turn, will bring benefits to the pregnancy phase and will identify the problems of the child in the early stages and carry out public health policies, emphasizing the welfare of the mother and children. He was a young man.
The project was the largest prospective researcher based on population, with growth and development and development, almost 60 thousand mothers and infants gathered in two phases. The first is the continuation of the growth of each woman in pregnant women around the world. The second is more than 1300 times older than the age of these babies.
To study the growth, health, nutrition and neurological development, for a 14-week-old child, the team used the same conceptual study of the Common Reference Study of the World Health Organization. Health (OME) for the production of prescribing standards to supplement these infant growth standards, and the reduction of fetal growth and birth symptoms to form a new phenotypical early classification.
According to novelty of results, data are in line with WHO discoveries that are similar to the growth of healthy and lactated children around the world, revealing that children's growth and physical and neurological behavior occur. Because they are very similar to children, regardless of their ethnic origin or place of birth, if they are good conditions and good nutrition. In addition, Confirm skin color or issues with different birthmarks, but quality of life. "In terms of health, they are really different, they are social and economic conditions rather than genetics," Villarre said.
Villar, for many years, coordinated Health and Childhood Health with WHO: "Our research clearly shows that the genetic code is not the main mental development or growth factor, but rather Medical options, good nutrition, breastfeeding, adequate housing, access to education and low environmental risk.".
Oxford researchers and their colleagues share a similar socioeconomic, healthy and educative status on their mother's side, but according to ethnic groups, there are differences in development between boys and girls who are not in a good state for a two-year-old African city. The other in London. "We are far more equal than the difference, however, there are more differences between the poor and the" rich "in a given country, than in a single language, among many" rich "around the world. the expert stressed.
Impact of discovery
The results of the research are in the field of international education for children over five years of age. "For the first time in medicine, mental development has standard parameters in the first quarter of pregnancy for two years of mother-in-law.. Full evaluation, using the same criteria and healthy populations with rules. This unified strategy for the comprehensive control of the mother-child is achieved for the first time between maternal, fetus, newborns, early babies, children and children, according to age, "said Villarrel.
Pediatricians (especially mothers and fathers) will have an integral international method, including mental development, based on WHO's criteria, not on local curves mixtures, sometimes poorly and clearly, with a population-dependent relationship, standardized measures, and a city or country the changes that change, "explained the professional.
therefore, The work reports evidence-based tools for infants with childhood problems in the uterusa method for measuring and comparing the prevalence of nutritional deficiencies, the first methodological evidence for the birth control of births and the precocious infant growth of children.
Each year, another 13 million more newborns will be identified as malnutrition across the world in comparison to current practice with new standards.
