Previous investigations have drawn conflicting conclusions concerning the association between childhood leukemia and maternal age, birth order, socioeconomic status, and paternal occupation. In this study, 255 childhood leukemia cases diagnosed in California between 1975 and 1980 were individually matched with two living controls on the basis of sex, date of birth, and county of birth. Data were derived from subjects birth certificates. Socioeconomic status and paternal benzene exposure were determined from the paternal occupation stated on the birth certificate. Hispanics and males were overrepresented in the case group. Cases were also less likely to be of birth order one. No difference was found between case and control groups for maternal age or paternal occupation. Analyses with stratification on age, sex, and leukemia cell type are reported.

The purpose of the study is to investigate the role of paternal exposures in the etiology of sporadic heritable retinoblastoma (RBL). The study has a matched case-control design with a sample size of 255 pairs. Cases will be children with sporadic heritable (RBL) identified from eight hospitals that together treat most of the RBL patients in the U.S. and Canada. We will use regional controls matched on year of birth and state/province of residence identified by randomdigit-dialing (RDD). Fathers and mothers of cases and controls will be interviewed by telephone about their occupational, medical, dietary, and personal exposures before the index childs conception. Blood samples will be obtained on cases and their parents for DNA isolation. The cases DNA will be used to characterize the disease-causing RB1 mutation. The parents DNA will be used to detect the few instances in which a parent also has the RB1 mutation, i.e., the childs RBL is familial rather than sporadic ...
Cyclophosphamide. Cyclophosphamide is a widely used anticancer drug and immunosuppressive agent which, following metabolic activation, forms DNA adducts, mostly N7-substituted guanine derivatives and phosphoester adducts ( 28, 29). Single doses for anticancer treatment in humans are typically between 400 and 1,200 mg/m2 ( 23); the equivalent mouse dose for this drug is 130 to 400 mg/kg. The stage-specificity of mutation induction by this drug is an issue of some controversy. Thus, the analysis of mutation induction at specific loci showed that paternal exposure to 120 mg/kg of cyclophosphamide mostly affects postmeiotic spermatids ( 30). However, according to the results of other studies, premeiotic exposure to this drug results in significant increases in the frequency of dominant mutations and chromosome aberrations in treated males (reviewed in ref. 28). We found that premeiotic spermatogonial exposure to cyclophosphamide resulted in a linear increase of ESTR mutation frequency in the germ ...
A new research has suggested that moderate paternal exposures, like smoking, can raise the number of mutations passed on to the coming generations.
BACKGROUND: Paternal occupational exposures have been proposed as a risk factor for childhood central nervous system (CNS) tumours. This study investigates possible associations between paternal occupational exposure and childhood CNS tumours in Great Britain. METHODS: The National Registry of Childhood Tumours provided all cases of childhood CNS tumours born and diagnosed in Great Britain from 1962 to 2006. Controls without cancer were matched on sex, period of birth and birth registration sub-district. Fathers occupations were assigned to one or more of 33 exposure groups. A measure of social class was also derived from fathers occupation at the time of the childs birth. RESULTS: Of 11 119 cases of CNS tumours, 5 722 (51%) were astrocytomas or other gliomas, 2 286 (21%) were embryonal and 985 (9%) were ependymomas. There was an increased risk for CNS tumours overall with exposure to animals, odds ratio (OR) 1.40 (95% confidence intervals (CIs) 1.01, 1.94) and, after adjustment for occupational

Results Multivariable analysis showed a strong association with potential maternal occupational exposure to heavy metals with an over twofold increased risk of hypospadias (OR 2.6; 95% CI 1.3 to 5.2), and women exposed to phthalates were more likely to have an affected son (OR 1.2; 95% CI 0.8 to 1.7). Compared with mild or isolated cases, the risks of moderate-severe hypospadias or multiple defects were increased up to two- and fivefold, respectively, with maternal exposure to most types of EDCs. Paternal occupational exposures to polychlorinated organic (OR 1.3; 95% CI 1.0 to 1.8) and bi-phenolic (OR 1.6; 95% CI 1.0 to 2.6) compounds were also possible risk factors. ...

Across species there is evidence that the quality of the early social environment can have a profound impact on neurobiology and behavior. In the present study we explore the effect of communal rearing conditions (3 dams with 3 litters per cage) during the postnatal period on offspring (F1) and grand-offspring (F2) anxiety-like and maternal behavior in Balb/c mice. Females rearing pups in communal nests exhibited increased levels of postpartum maternal care and communal rearing was found to abolish sex-differences in weaning weights. In adulthood, communally reared offspring were observed to display reduced anxiety-like behavior when placed in a novel environment. When rearing their own offspring under standard conditions, communally reared females demonstrated higher levels of motivation to retrieve pups, built higher quality nests, and exhibited higher levels of postpartum care compared to standard reared females. When exposed to an intruder male, communally reared females were more subordinate

Method A population-based case-control study of childhood ALL was conducted in Australia. Information about the occupational pesticide exposure of mothers and fathers was collected using job-specific modules. Information on the types and extent of pesticide exposure was collected for mothers and fathers before and around the time of conception, and also for mothers during pregnancy for the index case or control and for 1 year after birth.. ...
Objectives This paper presents the results of a pilot study of the job-specific modules developed for use in the study questionnaire of the Northern California Childhood Leukemia Study (i) to estimate the variability in response between people administered the same module and (ii) to estimate the number of modules required per family.. Methods For 63 participants in the pilot study, between-person variability was assessed by comparing reported job tasks among the respondents administered the same job-specific module. Within-respondent variability was assessed by examining changes in the timing and frequency of the job tasks and product use across critical time segments from 12 months before the childs birth to 3 years of age. Parental occupational histories were reviewed to estimate the expected number of job-specific modules required per family.. Results Considerable variability was identified for the tasks performed by the respondents with similar jobs and in the timing of tasks and products ...
Domesticering är en urvalsprocess för önskvärda egenskaper hos djur som över tid förändrar deras utseende, beteende och genetik. Några exempel av djur som genomgått denna riktade avel är vargen, mufflon, uroxen, vildsvinet och den röda djungelhönan som vi idag känner som hunden, fåret, kon, grisen och slaktkycklingen.. Några gemensamma egenskaper hos domesticerade djur är minskad rädsla för människor, och att de troligen har en högre stresstolerans jämfört med sina vilda förfäder. Det finns två huvudsakliga fysiologiska mekanismer som styr dessa responser, en hormonell och en nervös. Nervsystemet är i sin tur uppdelat i sympatiska och parasympatiska nervsystemet vilka har motsatta roller för kroppens funktioner. Under stress ger det sympatiska den så kallade "Fight-and-flight"-responsen, och det parasympatiska aktiveras under vila och kallas "rest-and-digest"-systemet. Det verkar troligt att domesticeringen agerat på dessa system för att minska rädsla och stress ...
Mutation rates at two expanded simple tandem repeat loci were studied in the germ line of first- and second-generation offspring of inbred male CBA/H, C57BL/6, and BALB/c mice exposed to either high linear energy transfer fission neutrons or low linear energy transfer x-rays. Paternal CBA/H exposure to either x-rays or fission neutrons resulted in increased mutation rates in the germ line of two subsequent generations. Comparable transgenerational effects were observed also in neutron-irradiated C57BL/6 and x-irradiated BALB/c mice. The levels of spontaneous mutation rates and radiation-induced transgenerational instability varied between strains (BALB/c,CBA/H,C57BL/6). Pre- and postmeiotic paternal exposure resulted in similar increases in mutation rate in the germ line of both generations of CBA/H mice, which together with our previous results suggests that radiation-induced expanded simple tandem repeat instability is manifested in diploid cells after fertilization. The remarkable finding ...

Greatly reduced sperm viability caused by tetracycline passes from father to son in pseudoscorpions. In a paper published today in Natures open access journal Scientific Reports, researchers at the University of Nevada, Reno report that male pseudoscorpions treated with the antibiotic tetracycline suffer significantly reduced sperm viability and pass this toxic effect on to their untreated sons. They suggest that a similar effect could occur in humans and other species.. "This is the first research to show a transgenerational effect of antibiotics," David Zeh, chair of the Department of Biology in the College of Science, said. "Tetracycline has a significant detrimental effect on male reproductive function and sperm viability of pseudoscorpions - reducing viability by up to 25 percent - and now we know that effect is passed on to the next generation. We didnt see the effect in subsequent generations.". The research involved a three-generation study of the pseudoscorpion, Cordylochernes ...

Y1 - 1998/6. N2 - Background. Although transmission of hepatitis C virus (HCV) through parental exposure is well documented, it is still controversial whether familial clustering of HCV occurs. Methods. To investigate risk factors for HCV infection, 109 cases and 84 non-infected controls were studied. In addition, 250 family members (104 men, 146 women) of cases and 170 family members of controls (64 men, 106 women) were tested for HCV infection using an anti-HCV antibody, alanine aminotransferase (ALT), and reverse transcribed polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR). Results. In the case-control analysis, people aged ≤ 60 were almost three times more likely to be infected by HCV than those aged ,40. Risk of HCV infection was most strongly related to a history of blood transfusion (OR = 12.6, 95% CI: ...

Lessening the risk of occupational pesticide exposure in agriculture is the purpose of EPAs Agricultural Worker Protection Standard. Now, EPA is proposing to amend its 1992 regulation so that almost 2 million workers can benefit from annual pesticide safety training that will include how to better protect themselves from pesticide exposure in the workplace and from bringing pesticides home on their clothes, exposing their families to chemicals. The proposal also includes updated personal protective equipment standards for pesticide handlers; a first-time ever minimum age requirement for pesticide handlers and some workers; improvements in the notification of pesticide treated areas; and access to information on pesticide application, the pesticide label, and safety data for farmworkers and their advocates.. ...

Epigenetic phenomena, such as DNA methylation, histone modifications, changes in chromatin structure or effects of non coding RNAs, affect gene expression and thus are expected to have important effects on phenotypes. The phenotypic diversity of a population is the result of both genetic and epigenetic variations, with epigenetics accounting for a portion of the variability of complex traits that is linked to interactions with the environment [1, 2]. The real contribution of epigenetics to phenotypic variation remains to be evaluated, but it is an attractive new path in animal breeding that might help to explain the missing causality of complex traits [3]. In recent years, a growing number of studies have shown that epigenetic information can be transmitted across generations. In particular, the intergenerational transmission of DNA methylation and the influence of epigenetic marks on phenotype variability has been clearly established in plants [4]. These phenomena could also partly explain the ...
In addition, a clinical health study of about 12,000 individuals was conducted between 2002 and 2006 with a focus on lifestyle diseases, based on the idea that adulthood is when disorders from radiation effects may develop. In this study, possible relationships between parental exposure and a combination of six multifactorial diseases (e.g., diabetes and hypertension) were analyzed, taking into consideration such lifestyle habits as drinking and smoking. The results showed no evidence at this time of increased risk of these multifactorial diseases among the target individuals. However, given that the subjects were still young at the time of the health examinations, with an average age of 48.6, it would be desirable to continue the clinical health study of this fixed cohort ...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the association between adiposity, physical activity (PA), and fecundability. DESIGN: Prospective cohort study. SETTING: Not applicable. PATIENT(S): A total of 2,062 female pregnancy planners from the United States and Canada who were enrolled during the preconception period. INTERVENTION(S): None. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE(S): Self-reported pregnancy. Fecundability ratios (FRs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) were estimated using proportional probabilities models that adjusted for potential confounders.
There was no clear association with cellular telephone phone use, but durations were relatively short (median 24-26 months), and there was a suggestion that risk may be increased for those with certain usage practices (ORs, 1.8-3.0 with lower confidence intervals >1.0) and those who used GSM service (OR, 2.1; 95% confidence interval, 1.1-4.0). Myeloid leukemia (acute and chronic combined) was associated with benzene (OR, 3.9; 95% confidence interval, 1.3-11), a nonspecific group of other solvents (2.3; 1.1-4.9), occupational pesticides that were mostly unspecified (3.8; 2.1-7.1), and working with or near powerlines (4.3; 1.3-15). No associations were found for diagnostic X-rays, cigarette smoking, or other occupational exposures." ...
November 30, 2017. How do cancer and cancer treatments affect the reproductive function of men? Can this affect the health of their direct descendants and subsequent generations? To get a clear picture, INRS researchers evaluate the current state of knowledge on this public health issue in a review article appearing in the journal Gynécologie Obstétrique & Fertilité. They analyze the results of scientific studies to find evidence and better understand the mechanisms of action of chemotherapy on spermatogenesis. The initial observation is that cancer survivors have greater difficulty becoming fathers and use more assisted reproductive techniques, regardless of their age at diagnosis. Despite a lower birth rate, it seems that having had cancer has no significant affects on the health of their children. However, there is no epidemiological study on the transgenerational effects of cancer treatments. There is also no data available on the reproductive function of the descendants of cancer ...
Mounting evidence suggests that poor nutrition (e.g. folate deficiency) can influence our epigenomes leading to increased disease risk in adult life and in the next generation. Understanding how diseases are epigenetically transmitted between generations will impact human health; however, the mechanism remains unclear. To explore this phenomenon, I will utilise a genetic mouse line (Mtrr) in which normal folate metabolism is disrupted resulting in congenital defects similar to those seen in maternal folate deficiency in humans. Remarkably, the phenotypes in the Mtrr model, such as growth restriction, developmental delay and congenital defects (e.g. neural tube, heart and placental defects) are transgenerationally inherited by the wildtype grandprogeny. Using genetic, cellular and embryo manipulation techniques in the Mtrr model, I will investigate the transgenerational effects of folate metabolism on feto-placental development ...

Maintaining nuclear competencies in the nuclear industry and nuclear regulatory authorities will be one of the most critical challenges in the near future. As many nuclear experts around the world are retiring, they are taking with them a substantial amount of knowledge and corporate memory. The loss of such employees who hold knowledge critical to both operations and safety poses a clear internal threat to the safe and reliable operation of nuclear facilities. This publication is intended for senior and middle level managers of nuclear industry operating organizations and provides practical information on knowledge loss risk management. The information provided in this publication is based upon actual experiences of Member State operating organizations and is intended to increase awareness of the need to develop a strategic approach and action plans to address the potential loss of critical knowledge and skills; to provide processes and, in conducting risk assessments, to determine the ...
Transgenerational effects of diethylstilbestrol (DES) have been reported in animals and humans. Alerted by two case reports, Klip H et al conducted a cohort study of all sons of a Dutch cohort of 16 284 women with a diagnosis of fertility problems and obtained a 67% response rate; their findings suggest an increased risk of hypospadias in the sons of women exposed in utero to DES. The mothers of 205 boys reported DES exposure in utero, and four of these boys were reported to have hypospadias. This defect was reported in only 8 of the remaining 8729 sons (prevalence ratio 21.3 (95% confidence interval (CI) 6.5-70.1)).. In a retrospective study, we analysed 32 406 computerized obstetrical and pediatric files at Port-Royal Maternity Center, covering births from 1 January 1993 to 31 December 2002. We compared the prevalence rate of hypospadias among 17 633 boys of mothers with and without in utero DES exposure.. The mothers of 240 boys had reported DES exposure in utero. Three (1.23%) were reported ...

Childhood cancers are rare disorders. The average annual age-standardized incidence is 149/1000000 (0-14 yrs). Diagnosis of childhood brain tumors, despite the specifi c localization and advanced imaging techniques can cause diffi culties. In recent years, due to better early recognition, number of surgically removable brain tumors is increasing. Early detection of the disease (clinical knowledge), use of modern imaging (fMRI) techniques and detection of characteristic molecular lesions allow up-to-date diagnosis and successful treatments. These approaches provide the basis for risk-adapted personalized treatment options.. ...

In the most recent analysis of Swedish data on congenital malformations, it appeared that in the county of Östergötland, the prevalence of infants with a diagnosed congenital malformation was higher than in the rest of the country. This observation initiated an effort to make a more complete identification of all infants born with a congenital malformation in that county and to compare it with the other two counties in the Southeast region of Sweden (Jönköping and Kalmar), utilising all the relevant Swedish medical health registers available. A total of 10,171 infants with a congenital malformation of any type were identified in the region: 4,698 infants in Östergötland county (6.2%), and 5,473 in the reference counties (5.4%). A 15% excess malformation risk in Östergötland compared with the two reference counties. Various validations of the register data were undertaken and different types of error were detected. Limb reduction defects seemed to occur more often in Östergötland county ...
We examined the life history consequences of cornicle secretion by Aphis fabae Scopoli in second and fourth instars, and its effects on host suitability for its parasitoid, Lysiphlebus fabarum (Marshall). Cornicle secretion did not affect aphid fecundity, but secretion in the second instar enhanced life table parameters, whereas secretion in the fourth instar affected them negatively, suggesting a higher cost of secretion in later instars. Secretion in either instar improved host suitability for L. fabarum. Although control and treated aphids were parasitized at similar rates, and with similar success, wasps developed faster and emerged as larger adults in aphids that had secreted, regardless of instar. Transgenerational effects were also evident. Progeny emergence was higher when parental wasps developed in fourth instars than in seconds, whether aphids secreted or not, and progeny were larger when parental hosts secreted in the second instar, but not in the fourth. Secreting fourth instars ...

Hello all, As many of you know, EMF is generally considered safe, even at high exposures. Nevertheless, studies have found a link between high power lines (which emit EMF) and childhood leukemia [1], and possibly some forms of brain cancer. While statistically significant, the risk is modest, and there is no known mechanism of action. Attempts to reproduce the findings in animal models have failed.
