Nutritional Strategies to Treat IUGR

William Hay of the University of Colorado Denver in the U.S. will use multiple types of nutritional interventions in a sheep model of placental insufficiency to test the hypothesis that there is a window of opportunity to prevent intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR). Better understanding of the mechanisms underlying IUGR could help explain why nutritional intervention sometimes fails and could lead to better outcomes for infants in low-resource areas.
