Infertility and diminished fertility are relevant to pediatric populations, but only beginning to be explored and clinically managed systematically in pediatric settings. This is a significant issue, one that impacts a wide variety of pediatric patients, and complex in abundance of ways. Conceiving and/or giving birth to genetic children is only possible after the onset of puberty and typically occurs volitionally only well after that. However, pediatric patients and their families often need to grapple with fertility concerns well in advance of late adolescence and/or adulthood.

Authors: Bulun SE, Yilmaz BD, Sison C, Miyazaki K, Bernardi L, Liu S, Kohlmeier A, Yin P, Milad M, Wei J Abstract Pelvic endometriosis is a complex syndrome characterized by an estrogen-dependent chronic inflammatory process that affects primarily pelvic tissues, including the ovaries. It is caused when shed endometrial tissue travels retrograde into the lower abdominal cavity. Endometriosis is the most common cause of chronic pelvic pain in women and is associated with infertility. The underlying pathologic mechanisms in the intracavitary endometrium and extra-uterine endometriotic tissue involve defectively progr...

Publication date: May 2019Source: Reproductive BioMedicine Online, Volume 38, Issue 5Author(s): Lien M. Davidson, Yaqiong Liu, Tracey Griffiths, Celine Jones, Kevin CowardAbstractTo improve success rates, assisted reproductive technology (ART) procedures continually undergo optimization and enhancement such that the best quality gametes and embryos can be identified and manipulated, thus improving clinical outcomes. Laser technology is now being applied across ART to reduce procedure times and increase the consistency and reproducibility of traditional ART techniques such as assisted hatching, embryo biopsy, intracytoplasm...

Conclusion The periconceptional environment and lifestyle factors modify sperm epigenome. This alteration might be maintained in the zygote and throughout development, thereby leading to the inheritance of newly acquired pathologies. The role of sperm miRNA, not only as innovative markers of fertility issues but also as vectors involved in the inheritance of paternal diseases, appears to be crucial. Overweight and obesity seem to alter sperm miRNA profile, thereby leading to transmission of different miRNA profiles in zygote, with consequences on embryo development. In long term, metabolic disorders have been described in...

In this study, a link between mitochondrial changes and infant temperament has also been suggested. Maternal psychosocial stress and lifetime trauma have been associated with decreased mitochondrial DNA copy number in the placenta (115, 116).IndividualityChronic stress links changes in the epigenetic landscape with health conditions (117). Different cell types are characterized by distinct patterns of gene expression due to developmental, environmental, physiological, and pathological reasons (117). Epigenetic mechanisms affect gene function in a dynamic way as a result of different environmental exposures during fetal dev...
