The INCAP Nutrition Supplementation Trial Longitudinal Study is perhaps the longest-running prospective cohort study in any low- or middle-income country. Established in Guatemala in 1969 as a community-randomized nutrition intervention trial, cohort participants are now 50 years old on average. In this presentation Dr Stein will review the initial trial rationale and design, and describe some of the key findings that have emerged, including recent findings on the role of early-life nutrition on cardiometabolic disease risk in middle adulthood.
