3-year follow-up study of infants exposed antenatally to methamphetamine
This is the study of infant development, environment and Lifestyle where the children are born to mothers using methamphetamine. The Werry Centre has been funded to study a cohort of infants which can be compared to others from Los Angeles, Honolulu, Des Moines and Tulsa. The infants studied are compared to a non-exposed control group of infants. At this stage, the earliest recruited infants are 2 years old, and recruitment continues until the target of 120 exposed and 120 non-exposed infants is achieved.
