Developmental Mechanisms of Human Structural Birth Defects (P01)

Funding Opportunity RFA-HD-17-017 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is to support innovative, multidisciplinary, interactive, and synergistic program projects that integrate basic, translational, and clinical approaches to understanding the developmental biology and genetic basis of significant congenital human malformations. To contain costs, each program project will consist of only three component research projects, as well as associated cores. At least one project must use basic research in an animal model system and at least one project must be clinical or translational in nature. The component research projects must share a common central theme, focus, or objective on a specific major developmental defect or malformation that is genotypically, mechanistically, biologically, or phenotypically analogous or homologous in both animal models and humans. Any non-mammalian or mammalian animal model may be used, as long as it contributes to the common overall theme or objective of the program project. The component research projects should share a common developmental gene, process, mechanism, pathway, or phenotype.

Publication date: Available online 11 November 2019Source: European Journal of Obstetrics &Gynecology and Reproductive BiologyAuthor(s): Federico Migliorelli, Sara S. De Oliveira, Begoña Martínez de TejadaAbstractBoth caesarean surgery and induction of labour are common practices performed in all labour wards in an attempt to reduce adverse obstetrical and neonatal outcomes. Recent evidence, notably from the ARRIVE Trial, demonstrated that elective induction at 39 weeks reduced the rate of caesarean deliveries and pregnancy-related hypertensive disorders. However, some concerns have to be addressed as the...

Wheat bread is the main foodstuff and supply of dietary energy/protein in most developing countries. Wheat based diets are poor regarding essential amino acid content especially lysine as the first limiting amino acid. Since human body is unable to build lysine, it is necessary to be taken via food and/or supplements. Recommended daily intake of lysine is estimated to be around 30-64 mg/kg body weight. Inadequate intake of lysine results in a syndrome called ‘protein energy malnutrition’ which is suspected to be more prevalent in developing countries. Since lysine is provided by different sources (especially me...

Allostasis and allostatic load are new concepts explaining the changes in body stemming from chronic stress. These concepts are explained with the assessment of metabolic, cardiovascular, inflammatory, and neuroendocrine systems. Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (DM) is a chronic disease with the fluctuations in fasting plasma glucose, and also in other various biomarkers and poses a risk forother chronic diseases. The course and duration of the disease, genetic factors, and environmental factors, including nutrition, aggravate these complications. Allostatic load is a multi-system assessment. Individuals’ compliance with th...
