NIH Seeks Comment on National Children’s Study Alternative

ASRM Bulletins July 17, 2015

The National Children’s Study (NCS) was authorized by Congress in 2000 to study environmental influences on child health and development. However, in 2014 the Institute of Medicine (IOM) was asked to review the NCS and issued a report which outlined concerns regarding the study's design, management, oversight structure, and anticipated cost. As a result, the launch of the Main Study for the NCS was put on hold, and an advisory committee to the Director of NIH was tasked with reviewing the feasibility of continuing the NCS. In late 2014, the advisory committee recommended that, while the overall goals of the NCS should remain a priority for future scientific support, the NCS was not feasible as currently outlined. It was soon announced that the NIH would discontinue the NCS.
