  • developmental
  • The measurement is calculated based on the estimated gestational age (how many weeks the mother was pregnant) in comparison to what is considered normal height, weight, head size, and developmental level for a child of the same gestational age and gender. (factbites.com)
  • The researchers also found that the difference between a newborn's age predicted by DNA methylation and by an obstetrician may be another indicator of developmental maturity, and is correlated with birthweight, commonly used as an indicator of perinatal health. (eurekalert.org)
  • This association supports the hypothesis that prenatal adversity associates with changes in neonatal methylation consistent with a delayed developmental age, which may have consequences later in life," the authors write. (eurekalert.org)
  • predict
  • This work extends upon earlier studies of DNA methylation patterns that change over development and predict age and age-related health conditions in children and adults. (eurekalert.org)
  • estimate
  • The median difference between age determined by DNA methylation and age determined by an obstetrician estimate was approximately 1 week. (eurekalert.org)
  • pregnant
  • The aims of this study were to determine if the normal range of TSH changes according to gestational age during the first trimester and to determine the upper limit of TSH to define subclinical hypothyroidism in pregnant women. (thyroid.org)
  • early
  • When the elective group was classified by gestational age into early and late deliveries, no significant difference was found in all the perinatal outcome parameters. (factbites.com)
