Is the growth of the child of a smoking mother influenced by the father's prenatal exposure to tobacco? A hypothesis generating longitudinal study.

Pembrey M, Northstone K, Gregory S, Miller LL, Golding J - BMJ Open (2014)

Bottom Line: After controlling for confounders, there were no associations with birth weight, length or BMI.Similar associations were found when primiparae and multiparae were analysed separately.In order to determine whether this was reflected in child development, we examined the relationships with IQ; we found that the boys born to exposed fathers had lower IQ scores on average, and that this was particularly due to the verbal component (mean difference in verbal IQ -3.65 points; 95% CI -6.60 to -0.70).

Mentions: Information collected from the study parents during their study pregnancy included details of the maternal and paternal grandparents. FigureĀ 1 illustrates the two pathways of possible influence of parental prenatal exposure to cigarette smoke on the study child that we investigate in this paper.
