Association of Long-term Exposure to Airborne Particulate Matter of 1 μm or Less With Preterm Birth in China.

Association of Long-term Exposure to Airborne Particulate Matter of 1 μm or Less With Preterm Birth in China. JAMA Pediatr. 2018 Jan 02;:e174872 Authors: Wang YY, Li Q, Guo Y, Zhou H, Wang X, Wang Q, Shen H, Zhang Y, Yan D, Zhang Y, Zhang H, Li S, Chen G, Zhao J, He Y, Yang Y, Xu J, Wang Y, Peng Z, Wang HJ, Ma X Abstract Importance: Airborne particulate matter pollution has been associated with preterm birth (PTB) in some studies. However, most of these studies assessed only populations living near monitoring stations, and the association of airborne particulate matter having a median diameter of 1 μm or less (PM1) with PTB has not been studied. Objective: To evaluate whether PM1 concentrations are associated with the risk of PTB. Design, Setting, and Participants: This national cohort study used National Free Preconception Health Examination Project data collected in 324 of 344 prefecture-level cities from 30 provinces of mainland China. In total, 1 300 342 healthy singleton pregnancies were included from women who were in labor from December 1, 2013, through November 30, 2014. Data analysis was conducted between December 1, 2016, and April 1, 2017. Exposures: Predicted weekly PM1 concentration data collected using satellite remote sensing, meteorologic, and land use information matched with the home addresses of pregnant women. Main Outcomes and Measures: Preterm birth (

AbstractPurposeHigh-maternal caffeine intake during pregnancy may be harmful for perinatal outcomes and future child health, but the level of fetal cumulative exposure has been difficult to measure thus far. Here, we present maternal dietary caffeine intake during the last trimester and its correlation to caffeine content in newborn hair after birth.MethodsMaternal third trimester diets and dietary caffeine intake were prospectively collected in Kuopio Birth Cohort (KuBiCo) using a 160-item food frequency questionnaire (n = 2840). Newborn hair was collected within 48 h after birth and analyzed by high-re...

We used RNA next generation sequencing analysis (HiSeq2000) to have a snapshot of the placenta transcriptome at embryonic day 19 to examine whether mice exposed to maternal obesity had significant changes in their transcriptome which may lead to growth restriction in the fetus.

CONCLUSIONS: To maintain adequate ISF antibiotic concentrations in obese pregnant women, our results suggest that redosing of cefazolin may be required. When wound closure has not occurred within 2 hours, redosing is suggested, following either a 2 or 3 g initial bolus. These preliminary results require validation in a larger population.

te;zquez CM Abstract Healthy lifestyle habits spanning from preconception to postpartum are considered as a major safeguard for achieving successful pregnancies and for prevention of gestational diseases. Among preconception priorities established by the World Health Organization (WHO) are healthy diet and nutrition, weight management, physical activity, planned pregnancy and physical, mental and psychosocial health. Most studies covering the topic of healthy pregnancies focus on maternal diet because obesity increases the risks for adverse perinatal outcomes, including gestational diabetes mellitus, large for ges...

AbstractWe read with great interest the article by,+PriscilleSauvegrain et al. entitled “Understanding high rates of stillbirth and neonatal death in a disadvantaged, high ‐migrant district in France: a perinatal audit”.1 This well ‐designed study confirmed again that maternal overweight/obesity increases perinatal mortality. We would like to address some points that merit further attention. The intrauterine environment can affect the long‐term health of the offspring has been widely accepted. Maternal high pre‐pregnancy...

Conclusion Maternal metabolic biomarkers at delivery vary significantly with both obesity and GWG. Taken together, these findings suggest that GWG (with and without comorbid obesity) is an important mediator of measurable metabolites in pregnancy but is not necessarily accompanied by inflammatory measures in serum. These findings are consistent with GWG being an independent risk factor for metabolic disturbances during pregnancy.

AbstractNoninvasive prenatal testing (NIPT) has become a popular screening test for the most common fetal aneuploidies. The performance of NIPT is affected by several factors including maternal obesity, which results in a greater rate of no ‐calls for obese pregnant women. Guidelines regarding NIPT in prenatal screening have been published, but with few and divergent recommendations on the issue. We aimed to review the medical literature, guidelines from scientific societies and information material from commercial NIPT providers on no‐calls and maternal obesity. We systematically identified medical literature and guid...
