Description

Description

The CDC-Denmark program is funded to develop and implement a United States-Denmark collaborative laboratory and epidemiologic infrastructure to examine a variety of public health issues. It augments the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's capabilities to achieve its strategic objectives by using Denmark's unique data infrastructure to address questions for which data are not currently available in the U.S., or would be much more costly to replicate. Note: The total funding for this grant is $1,100,000, of which $400,000 is distributed to research involving autism. Thus, this latter amount was included in the 2009 Portfolio Analysis.

Strategic Plan Objective

Strategic Plan Objective

Yellow dot: Objective has some degree of funding, but less than the recommended amount. 3SH. Support at least three studies of special populations or use existing databases to inform our understanding of environmental risk factors for ASD in pregnancy and the early postnatal period by 2012. Such studies could include: o Comparisons of populations differing in geography, gender, ethnic background, exposure history (e.g., prematurity, maternal infection, nutritional deficiencies, toxins), and migration patterns; and o Comparisons of phenotype (e.g., cytokine profiles), in children with and without a history of autistic regression, adverse events following immunization (such as fever and seizures), and mitochondrial impairment. These studies may also include comparisons of phenotype between children with regressive ASD and their siblings. oEmphasis on environmental factors that influence prenatal and early postnatal development is particularly of high priority. Epidemiological studies should pay special attention to include racially and ethnically diverse populations. IACC Recommended Budget: $12,000,000 over 5 years.
