Summary

Epidemiologists in Denmark finished enrolling a cohort of 100,000 pregnant women into a mother-and-child research project last September and expect to finish collecting data from the children over the next year. The entire survey--which is large for this country of 70,000 annual births--is to be completed in 2005 for about $15 million, a tiny fraction of what the cost would be in the United States.
