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