Very preterm birth or very low birth weight may put a person at risk for not reaching full airway growth potential in early adulthood, according to a study published in The Lancet Respiratory Medicine.
In the meta-analysis, the researchers evaluated individual participant data from 11 cohort studies, which included 935 participants born very preterm or with very low birth weight and 722 control participants. Expiratory airflow was tested at a mean age of 21 years.
