NeuroTrax Milestone: Cognitive Tests Administered to 9,800 Adolescents in Longitudinal Study of World Health Organization (WHO) Breastfeeding Intervention


NeuroTrax cognitive testing is a primary outcome measure in a population-based randomized trial of a World Health Organization (WHO) breastfeeding promotion intervention in 17,000 children in the Republic of Belarus. The children have been followed periodically since their birth 16 years ago. As of September 2013, 9,800 adolescents had completed testing in this multinational collaborative study co-sponsored by the US National Institutes of Health (NIH) and Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) with research teams from McGill (Canada), Harvard (US) and the University of Bristol (UK). The researchers hope to gain valuable insight into the long-term cognitive effects of prolonged and exclusive breastfeeding, as well as the effects of growth during pregnancy and early infancy, other perinatal factors, and socioeconomic position. The study, which includes 34 clinical sites in Belarus, represents a milestone for NeuroTrax, both in terms of scope and customization of the testing platform for data transfer in areas without access to the Internet.

NeuroTrax provides research services to pharmaceutical and medical device companies as well as academic investigators in need of validated and standardized cognitive measures for their clinical trials. Services include data collection, data analysis, investigator training, customization, and software services.
