TOPMed: Children's Health Study (CHS) Effects of Air Pollution on the Development of Obesity in Children (Meta-AIR)
|Study ID||Alternative Stable ID||Type|
The Effects of Air Pollution on the Development of Obesity in Children (Meta-AIR) study was proposed to study a subset of the Children's Health Study (CHS) participants representing the extremes of long-term traffic-related air pollution exposure occurring in Southern California CHS communities. The primary aim of the Meta-AIR study was to investigate whether lifetime exposure to air pollution increases risk for obesity and metabolic dysfunction at 17-18 years of age. A total of 56 Hispanic White participants (16 asthma cases and 40 controls) were included in the TOPMed project.
