英文摘要: Abstract(#br)Purpose(#br)To evaluate the credibility of twin status as an instrumental variable for birth weight and infant growth and to obtain less-confounded estimates of the associations of birth weight or infant growth with adolescent blood pressure (BP).(#br)Methods(#br)Prospective population-based “Children of 1997” birth cohort of all surviving infants born in Hong Kong, China, from April to May 1997 with sex-, age-, and height-specific BP z -score at approximately 11 years ( n = 6276) and approximately 13 years ( n = 5305).(#br)Results(#br)In instrumental variable analyses, birth weight-for-gestational age z -score was not associated with z -score for systolic BP (0.01; 95% confidence interval [CI], −0.22 to 0.25) or diastolic BP (0.04; 95% CI, −0.09 to 0.18) at approximately 11...
