Abstract

The Western Australian Pregnancy Cohort (Raine) Study (www.rainestudy.org.au) was established 1989-1991 with the then stated purpose: to develop a large cohort of Western Australian children studied from 18 weeks gestation to ascertain the relative contributions of familial risk factors, fetal growth, placental development and environmental insults to outcome in infancy and to the precursors of adult morbidity. This cohort, with complete intrauterine, perinatal and childhood data, will enable evaluation of the interaction between these factors, subsequent lifestyle patterns and environmental exposures which contribute to ill health during life.
