Cystic Fibrosis in unborn babies may lead to lower brith weight

Washington DC, [USA] Aug 04 : Babies born with Cystic Fibrosis (CF), an ailment of the lungs and the digetsive system, suffer from a number of complications which includes lower average birth weight, finds a research.
According to the reasearch, while babies with CF are often born prematurely, this only accounts for around 40% of the effect on birth weight.
This means that the CF mutation could also have an effect on the way babies develop within the womb. These results may be the first step to understanding and improving the health of babies with CF before they are born.
The findings further show that babies born to disadvantaged families are likely to have a lower weight at birth, regardless of whether or not they have cystic fibrosis. This indicates that the socio-economic inequalities in outcomes that occur in CF may start in the intrauterine period.
Poor nutrition and slow growth are common in babies suffering from CF.
Both factors can affect the lung function and survival of the babies in the future.
The study appears in the Thorax journal.
