Kidney dysfunction in the low birth weight murine adult: implications of oxidative stress.

In conclusion, despite some minor differences, LBW female and male adults that have a reduced nephron endowment experience comparable progressive renal and vascular dysfunction that is associated with increased oxidative stress and subsequent endothelial dysfunction. Tempol treatment and/or NOX4 inhibition attenuates renal and vascular dysfunction in LBW adults. PMID: 29846114 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: Pregnancy-specific anxiety was found to significantly increase the risk of PTB and LBW in a military population. Understanding this relationship is essential in developing effective assessments and interventions. Results emphasize the importance of prenatal maternal mental health to fetal health and birth outcomes. Further research is needed to determine the specific physiological pathways that link prenatal anxiety and depression with poor birth outcomes. PMID: 31808825 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Sitoris G, Veltri F, Kleynen P, Cogan A, Belhomme J, Rozenberg S, Pepersack T, Poppe K Abstract Backgound: Subclinical hypothyroidism (SCH) and thyroid autoimmunity (TAI) have been associated with poor clinical pregnancy outcomes. However, these outcomes also depend on a number of demographic and obstetric variables. Therefore, the aim of the study was to investigate the impact of thyroid disorders on these outcomes, after adjustment for associated demographic and obstetrical parameters. METHODS: Cross-sectional study including 1521 pregnant women who did their work-up and follow-up in our center and h...

Ward, Enkui Duan, Ying ZhangEpidemiological studies have revealed that caffeine consumption during pregnancy is associated with adverse gestational outcomes, yet the underlying mechanisms remain obscure. Recent animal studies with physiologically relevant dosages have begun to dissect adverse effects of caffeine during pregnancy with respect to oviduct contractility, embryo development, uterine receptivity, and placentation that jointly contribute to pregnancy complications. Interestin...

Long-term follow-up data about newborns exposed to bDMARDs during pregnancy are however scarce. Here we summarize the published evidence and available recommendations for use of bDMARDs during pregnancy. We analyse clinical features at birth and at follow-up of 84 childr...

CONCLUSIONS: Prenatally initiated CBT did not improve maternal symptoms or child outcomes among non-help-seeking women with antenatal depression or anxiety. Our findings are not in line with present recommendations for universal screening and treatment for antenatal depression or anxiety, and future work may include the relevance of baseline help-seeking.
