  1. Evaluation of associations between breast feeding and subsequent development of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis.

    Article - En anglais


    To determine if previously breast fed children are more or less likely to have developed juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (JRA).

    Reports suggest that non-breast fed children are more likely to develop certain diseases for which an autoimmune pathogenesis is suspected.


    Data from a longitudinal, case controlled population survey of childhood rheumatic diseases in Saskatchewan, Canada, included information pertaining to breast feeding history.

    These data were analyzed in the context of a retrospective, case controlled study to confirm results of an earlier report in which JRA was found to occur less frequently in previously breast fed children.

    For this analysis a child who had been breast fed for any length of time was categorized as having been a breast fed subject.


    A population of 88 children with pauciarticular JRA were more likely than an unmatched control population of 331 healthy children (p=0.01) or those with polyarticular JRA (p=0.006) to have been breast fed.

    However, when corrected for the number of comparisons made, statistical significance was not achieved. 49 children with polyarticular JRA did not have a breast feeding history significantly different from the unmatched control population. (...)
