AB  - OBJECTIVES: To explore associations between in utero exposure to the 1918
      influenza pandemic and hospitalization rates in old age (>/= 70 years) in the
      United States. METHODS: We identified individuals exposed (mild and deadly waves)
      and unexposed in utero to the 1918 influenza pandemic (a natural experiment) by
      using birth dates from the Asset and Health Dynamics Among the Oldest Old survey.
      We analyzed differences in hospitalization rates by exposure status with
      multivariate linear regression. RESULTS: In utero exposure to the deadly wave of 
      the 1918 influenza pandemic increased the number of hospital visits by 10.0 per
      100 persons. For those exposed in utero to the deadliest wave of the influenza
      pandemic, high rates of functional limitations are shown to drive the higher
      rates of hospitalizations in old age. CONCLUSIONS: In utero exposure to the
      influenza pandemic increased functional limitations and hospitalization rates in 
      old age. Public Health Implications. To determine investments in influenza
      pandemic prevention programs that protect fetal health, policymakers should
      include long-term reductions in hospitalizations in their cost-benefit
      evaluations.
