Quantitative meta-analysis of maternal prenatal salivary cortisol and newborn birthweight does not identify effect of fetal sex.

Summary of "Quantitative meta-analysis of maternal prenatal salivary cortisol and newborn birthweight does not identify effect of fetal sex."

Heightened concentration of maternal cortisol is a frequently proposed mechanism linking adverse maternal environments with poor birth outcomes, including birth weight. It is commonly hypothesized that prenatal exposures have sexually dimorphic effects on fetal development, however few studies have assessed the effects of fetal sex on the relationship between maternal cortisol and birth outcomes.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Works consisting of studies using a quantitative method of combining the results of independent studies (usually drawn from the published literature) and synthesizing summaries and conclusions which may be used to evaluate therapeutic effectiveness, plan new studies, etc. It is often an overview of clinical trials. It is usually called a meta-analysis by the author or sponsoring body and should be differentiated from reviews of literature.

Meta-analysis of randomized trials in which estimates of comparative treatment effects are visualized and interpreted from a network of interventions that may or may not have been evaluated directly against each other. Common considerations in network meta-analysis include conceptual and statistical heterogeneity and incoherence.

A quantitative method of combining the results of independent studies (usually drawn from the published literature) and synthesizing summaries and conclusions which may be used to evaluate therapeutic effectiveness, plan new studies, etc., with application chiefly in the areas of research and medicine.

Care provided the pregnant woman in order to prevent complications, and decrease the incidence of maternal and prenatal mortality.

Pregnancy in which the mother and/or FETUS are at greater than normal risk of MORBIDITY or MORTALITY. Causes include inadequate PRENATAL CARE, previous obstetrical history (ABORTION, SPONTANEOUS), pre-existing maternal disease, pregnancy-induced disease (GESTATIONAL HYPERTENSION), and MULTIPLE PREGNANCY, as well as advanced maternal age above 35.
