To construct a semi-mechanistic model which describes fetal growth (weight, length and body composition) based on maternal protein-energy availability and maternal body and tissue (protein and lipid) composition.
Conception through birth
Body weight (fat + fat-free mass; adipose tissue sketetal muscle and other lean tissues mass and protein + lipids + water (intracellular and extracellular content); Length
Predictors (other than time)
Protein-energy intake and current pool, water, lipid content in tissues
Do we have a tool for visualizing model output/predictions? If not, do we plan to?
No data available
Model calibration to additional data in HBGDki repository, and model refinement as necessary.
