Abstract: The Maastricht Essential Fatty Acid Birth cohort (MEFAB) was established in 1989 to study the changes in fatty acid concentration during pregnancy and how this related to the fatty acid concentrations of the neonate. The original sample contains data of 1203 subjects. Some participants whom participated in the original MEFAB study also participated in follow-up studies at age 4, 7 or 12; 41%, 52% and 35% of eligible participants, respectively. Collected data include maternal fatty acid concentrations at multiple points during pregnancy and at birth and at age 7 for the child, but also anthropometric measurements during development, assessments of cognitive development, asthma, atopy and cardiovascular risk factors. Data of MEFAB have been used in 37 articles in peer-reviewed journals and 4 doctoral theses have been completed. Data of MEFAB is upon request available for new research questions.
