Background: Aluminum has known neurotoxicity and may impair short-term bone health. In a randomised trial we showed reduced neurodevelopmental scores in preterm infants previously exposed to aluminum from parenteral nutrition solutions. Here, in the same cohort, we test the hypothesis that neonatal aluminum exposure also adversely affects long-term bone health, as indicated by reduced bone mass.
