Vietnam veterans children sought for birth defect registry.

Did you serve in Vietnam?

Do you have children with birth defects or other conditions like learning and/or attention disorders; childhood cancers; autistic spectrum disorders; immune and/or endocrine problems?

Birth Defect Research for Children is collecting data to examine the effects of service in Vietnam and potential exposure to Agent Orange on the children of Vietnam veterans.

Participation in this project includes:

Completing an online questionnaire which can be found at this link:

The questionnaire will ask about your child or children's disabilities; health and family history of both parents; exposures during pregnancy and occupational exposures.

A special section will ask about your service in Vietnam. This section was designed in collaboration with the New Jersey State Agent Orange Commission.

Collected data will be used for a study of the pattern of birth defects and disabilities that have been most frequently reported in the children of Vietnam veterans.

All data are confidential. Your permission would be requested before any researcher would get in touch with you.
