We appreciate the interest of Dr. Garlant zec et al in our article on the association between maternal occupational exposure to organic solvents (chlorinated, aromatic and Stoddard) and birth defects1 We reported a positive association between chlorinated solvents and neural tube defects, particularly spina bifida; we did not observe an association between solvent exposure and orofacial clefts. As
Data on CHD cases and control infants were obtained from the National Birth Defects Prevention Study for the period of 1997 to 2002. Exposure to PAHs was assigned by industrial hygienist consensus, based on self-reported maternal occupational histories from 1 month before conception through the third month of pregnancy. Logistic regression was used to evaluate the association between maternal occupational PAH exposure and specific CHD phenotypic subtypes among offspring ...

Obesity is one of the leading threats to global public health. It is consequent to abnormal energy metabolism. Currently, it has been well established that maternal exposure to environmental stressors that cause inappropriate fetal development may have long-term adverse effects on offspring energy metabolism in an exposure timing-dependent manner, known as developmental programming of health and diseases paradigm. Rapidly increasing evidence has indicated that maternal exposure to ambient fine particles (PM2.5) correlates to abnormal fetal development. In the present study, we therefore assessed whether maternal exposure to diesel exhaust PM2.5 (DEP), the major component of ambient PM2.5 in urban areas, programs offspring energy metabolism, and further examined how the timing of exposure impacts this programming. The growth trajectory of offspring shows that although prenatal maternal exposure to DEP did not impact the birth weight of offspring, it significantly decreased offspring body weight from

New research shows that maternal exposure to a common and ubiquitous form of industrial pollution can harm the immune system of offspring and that this injury is passed along to subsequent generations, weakening the bodys defenses against infections such as the influenza virus.
JUSTIFICATIVA E OBJETIVOS: Vários estudos têm mostrado o peso ao nascer de ambos os pais como preditor do peso de nascimento do descendente, com correlação mais fortemente transmitida através da linhagem materna, sugerindo que exposições desfavoráveis à mãe desde a sua própria vida intrauterina até os períodos de pré-concepção e gestacional, além dos genes herdados, influenciam o tamanho ao nascimento da prole. A preocupação atual se relaciona ao ciclo intergeracional do baixo peso ao nascer ou do peso ao nascer elevado entre gerações, com todos os agravos imediatos e a longo prazo que estão implicados em nascer pequeno para a idade gestacional e/ou baixo peso ou grande para a idade gestacional e/ou macrossômico. O presente trabalho tem o objetivo de estudar a correlação entre o peso ao nascer da criança com o peso ao nascer da mãe, com as condições maternas, em crianças nascidas a termo no Hospital Universitário da USP (HU-USP). MÉTODOS: Foram identificados 773 ...
Decades of public health research have documented that smoking in pregnancy poses significant health risks to both mother and child. More recent studies have shown that even passive maternal exposure to secondhand smoke associates with negative birth outcomes. However, the mechanisms linking exposure to outcomes have remained obscure. As a first step toward defining the metabolic consequence of lo ...

This study indicates that maternal occupational exposure to solvents may be associated with higher rates of ASD in their children. These results should be interpreted with caution given that this association did not remain significant after correcting the P-values for multiple comparisons. However, these results are consistent with earlier reports that have identified solvents as a potential risk factor for ASD.5 9 28 Research in the non-ASD population has found that solvents can be absorbed into the blood via skin or lungs.29 Water-soluble solvents may be cleared out of the body in urine or faeces, but many solvents are retained in organs including the brain. Solvents can also be metabolised into more toxic secondary substances (eg, methyl-butyl ketone, n-hexane) that are associated with a number of neurological effects and changes.29 In infants, solvents have been found to interfere with the glial guidance process which inhibits neuritic outgrowth.30 Infants of mothers who have been exposed to ...
PCBs are industrial chemicals that have neurotoxic effects, and studies indicate that they interfere with normal functions of the endocrine system. Although the manufacturing of PCBs was banned in the 1970s, they remain a major contaminant of the environment and of human tissues. Epidemiological studies show that exposure to PCBs during intrauterine development is highly associated with measurable neurological deficits in the offspring. In addition, deficits associated with PCBs are inversely associated with maternal thyroid hormone (TH) levels. This suggests that PCBs interfere with TH action in the fetal brain. Using in situ hybridization to measure HES-1 and HES-5 mRNA (direct markers of Notch activity), our laboratory has found that both maternal thyroid status and maternal exposure to PCBs influences Notch signaling in the fetal rat brain. We found that Aroclor 1254 produces a dose-dependent increase in HES-1 expression in the ventricular zone. Recent evidence suggests that Notch signaling ...
Andrea Baccarelli and colleagues show that maternal exposure to a dioxin following the industrial accident in Seveso, Italy in 1976 is associated with modified neonatal thyroid function even many years later.
I am so sorry things arent going well for your dreams for a second child. I just wanted to offer you a little hope, first of all, I have TWO friends who have the same clotting disorder, it must be very common! One of my best college friends had a son, then tried for her 2nd for several years and I think she miscarried at least 5 times or more. She did get pregnant again once they figured things out and she had to give herself shots almost her entire pregnancy, but she was able to keep the baby that time. So I think there are things that can be done?? You should check with your doctor about it if you havent already. Dont give up hope! ;) Ill be praying for you. Also- maybe you know but Kerigan didnt come easy for us, either. We have infertility (different issues, but still just as frustrating), and she took 2 years and several shots/treatments too. Why cant it just be easy?! Especially for good moms and dads who deserve another baby. It is so hard when it doesnt come easy for people like ...

The young age at onset of many cancers in childhood has led to investigations on maternal exposures during pregnancy. Data from a population-based case-control study in Germany (1992-1997) that included 1,867 cases and 2,057 controls was used to investigate this question. Maternal use of vitamin, fo …
5 throughout pregnancy of two.three vs. 1.seven, respectively). The ninety five% CIs were not notably larger In this particular analysis, suggesting that collinearity was not an important difficulty. Also, through pregnancy we discovered the Affiliation to become especially with the third-trimester exposure in products that involved exposure in all trimesters alongside one another. The specificity from the Affiliation for the prenatal period is in line with a number of other lines of proof that propose a prenatal origin of ASD, like data on variances in brain cytoarchitecture in brains of youngsters with ASD (McFadden and Minshew 2013; Stoner et al. 2014) and associations among maternal exposure to teratogens for the duration of pregnancy and ASD (Rodier 1995). Our effects also advise an association predominantly in boys, but this locating ought to be interpreted with warning, given the little number of ladies with ASD inside our sample ...

So this is making me feel like a FTM (first time mom) wll over again... even though I know its probably nothing I cant help but be a bit nervous. I havent had spotting this entire pregnancy. DH (dear husband) and I havent had sex recently (or, because of me, hardly ever this pregnancy) so I know its not that. Last night I wiped and noticed some pink/brown discharge. I have not been having cramping other than random BH yesterday during my normal walk in the afternoon. Thr only pain Ive had is RLP and pain in my vagina since shes been sitting so low this whole pregnancy. I have felt her move afterwards, not doing kick counts but it doesnt feel like more or less than normal) I called my OB last night and am waiting to get in for an appointment this morning at her request. Anyone else have the same thing? To be honest whats making me more worried is our LO (little one) PAPP-A result and that I oftrn have pain in my vagina due to babys position

Kris- TO answer your question, I am on metformin and synthroid. I had responded when you first posted back in Oct. Im so sorry about your m/c. I do split up my meds and I worked up to 2000mg a day. When I was on 1000 mg, I took one in the am and one in the pm. I did that for a week. THen upped the dose to 1500. I took 2 in the am and 1 at night. Now Im on 2000mg. I have stayed on that through my entire pregnancy. So far my baby is measuring perfect. The thing with metformin is that if you continue to eat crap that upsets your stomach it will tear you up. You have to change how you eat so that it does not bother you ...
