NCDS 2002 Biomedical Technical Report

Author:   Elizabeth Fuller (National Centre for Social Research) Christine Power (Institute of Child Health) Peter Shepherd (Centre for Longitudinal Studies) David Strachan (St George‚Äôs, University of London)

Description:  

In 1999, the Medical Research Council awarded funding for the first biomedical study of NCDS cohort members in adulthood as part of its ‘Health of the Public’ initiative. The grant is held jointly by the Institute of Child Health, St George’s Hospital Medical School (now St George’s, University of London), the Centre for Longitudinal Studies and the National Centre for Social Research.

The survey was designed to obtain objective measures of ill-health and biomedical risk factors. The broad aims were to explore the impact of developmental,  environmental and lifestyle factors on ill-health, and physiological and psychological function among adults in early middle age; to investigate the effect of such factors on geographical and socioeconomic health inequalities; and to make possible comparisons between these adults in early middle age and members of the MRC funded 1946 birth cohort at the same age. The research was also intended to address a wide range of specific hypotheses relating to anthropometry, cardiovascular, respiratory and allergic diseases, visual and hearing impairment, and mental ill-health.

The key biological markers of health obtained from the cohort members in their early 40s were designed to serve as  outcomes for analyses of the environmental, psychosocial, biological and behavioural factors in different stages in life from birth onwards. They are also intended to supply baseline measures for future studies of the health of these adults from early middle age through to later life. An independent committee, chaired by Professor Alan Silman, was appointed at the outset of the project to oversee the conduct of the project. Ethical approval for the NCDS biomedical survey was obtained from the South-east Multi-centre Research Ethics Committee.
