Authors: Gawlinska K, Gawlinski D, Przegalinski E, Filip M Abstract A balanced maternal diet is necessary for the proper health and development of offspring. Recent clinical and preclinical studies have strongly indicated that maternal exposure to a high-fat diet (HFD) can have an irreversible impact on the structure and function of the offspring's brain and affect the immune system, which may predispose the offspring to brain disorders, including depression. The irisin/brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) axis is a pathway that influences several neurobehavioral mechanisms involved in the pathogenesis of menta...

oft Rubella is a systemic virus infection that is usually mild. It can, however, cause severe birth defects known as the congenital rubella syndrome (CRS) when infection occurs early in pregnancy. As many as 8%–13% of children with CRS developed autism during the rubella epidemic of the 1960s compared to the background rate of about 1 new case per 5000 children. Rubella infection and CRS are now rare in the U.S. and in Europe due to widespread vaccination. However, autism rates have risen dramatically in recent decades to about 3% of children today, with many cases appearing after a period of normal developme...

Although acne is commonly thought of as a problem of adolescence, it can occur in people of all ages. Adult acne has many similarities to adolescent acne with regard to both causes and treatments. But there are some unique qualities to adult acne as well. What causes adult acne? Adult acne, or post-adolescent acne, is acne that occurs after age 25. For the most part, the same factors that cause acne in adolescents are at pl...

Conclusions: Our findings generally do not support the hypothesis that morbidity prevalence predicts a subsequent decrease in gut microbiota maturity or diversity in rural Malawian children. Certain morbidity symptoms may be predictive of microbiota maturity and diversity and relative abundances of several bacterial taxa. Furthermore, microbiota diversity and maturity may be associated with the subsequent incidence of fever.
