Recent evidence has highlighted the importance of vitamin D to the development of the central nervous system. Some studies have shown an association between maternal vitamin D deficiency during pregnancy and offspring Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) symptoms based on parent- or teacher ratings. There are no previous studies on early pregnancy 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D) levels and the risk of diagnosed offspring ADHD. Our aim was to examine maternal 25(OH)D levels in early pregnancy and of...
Pregnancy anxiety predicts adverse developmental outcomes in offspring from infancy through late childhood, but studies have not examined associations with outcomes in early childhood, nor clarified ethnic or cultural variations in these processes.
Maternal thyroid problems during pregnancy have been linked to neurocognitive impairments in children. While studies suggest that disorders of maternal thyroid function during pregnancy are associated with symptoms of mental health problems in children, little is known about the risk of clinically significant psychiatric disorders in adolescence. A sample of 2451 Canadian adolescents enrolled in the Ontario Child Health Study completed the Mini International Neuropsychiatric Interview for Children and Adole...
Prenatal exposure to organophosphate (OP) pesticides has been associated with altered neuronal cell development and behavioral changes in animal offspring. However, the few studies investigating the association between prenatal OP pesticide exposure and neurodevelopmental outcomes such as Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and autistic traits in children produced mixed findings.
Maternal anxiety and depression symptoms during pregnancy can compromise a woman's well-being and affect offspring development. The present study represents a comparison of maternal late-pregnancy internalizing symptoms (i.e., depression and anxiety) between the United States of America (US) and the Netherlands. We hypothesized that women in the US would report higher levels of anxiety and depression during pregnancy compared to their Dutch counterparts, both on individual symptom indicators and overall lat...
Are maternal depression and/or anxiety disorders (MDAD) before and during pregnancy associated with IVF outcomes?
Many substances in cigarette smoke can induce changes in DNA methylation. Our previous studies have confirmed paternal nicotine exposure causes hyperactivity in the offspring via mmu-miR-15b. The main aim of the present study is to explore the molecular mechanism underlying the cross-generation effects of paternal nicotine exposure more comprehensively. The male C57BL/6 mice were exposed to 2 mg/kg/d nicotine for 5 weeks, and then mated with wild-type females. The offspring male mice were subjected to beh...
There is evidence that pregnancy-related anxiety (PrA) has a negative impact on birth outcomes and infant development. However, little is known about worrisome levels and individual trajectories of PrA dimensions across pregnancy and their predictive factors, particularly the association of PrA with symptoms of social phobia (SP) and generalized anxiety disorder (GAD).
Human and animal cross-sectional studies have shown that maternal levels of the inflammatory cytokine interleukin-6 (IL-6) may compromise brain phenotypes assessed at single time points. However, how maternal IL-6 associates with the trajectory of brain development remains unclear. We investigated whether maternal IL-6 levels during pregnancy relate to offspring amygdala volume development and anxiety-like behavior in Japanese macaques. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was administered to 39 Japanese macaqu...
In pregnant women with epilepsy, it is imperative to balance the safety of the mother and the potential teratogenicity of anticonvulsants, which could cause impairments such as intellectual disability and cleft lip. In this study, we examined behavioral and hippocampal neurogenesis alterations in male offspring of rats exposed to valproic acid (VPA) during pregnancy. Pregnant Wistar rats received daily intraperitoneal injections of VPA (100 mg/kg/day or 200 mg/kg/day) from embryonic day 12.5 until birth. At...
Many pregnant women are consuming diets of poor overall quality. Although many studies have linked poor prenatal diet quality to an increased risk of specific diseases in offspring, it is not known if exposure to poor prenatal diet affects core neurophysiological regulatory systems in offspring known to lie upstream of multiple diseases.
The brain development during the prenatal period is affected by various factors, including the mother's metabolic condition. It has been revealed that diabetes in pregnancy is associated with structural and functional alterations in offspring's hippocampus. Hippocampus, as a critical region with well-known roles in learning and memory consolidation, is vulnerable to changes in glucose level. This study was designed to investigate the effects of maternal diabetes during the pregnancy period and insulin thera...
Schizophrenia has been associated with pregnancy and birth complications and fetal exposure to inflammation is thought to be a common underlying mechanism. However, whether the risk is specific to particular phases of pregnancy is unclear. The aim of this study was to characterise and compare longitudinal patterns of maternal serum concentrations of cytokines across pregnancy between offspring who were later ascertained to have a psychotic disorder, non-psychotic siblings of these cases, and unrelated, non-...
Sexually transmitted infections, HIV, and unplanned pregnancy challenge the health of Scottish teens. We conducted focus groups with teens (ages 16-19 years) recruited from an urban youth cafe in Edinburgh and assessed sexual risk-taking and protective behaviors. A trained facilitator, using a semi-structured interview guide, led the groups. We taped and transcribed data verbatim for coding and theming. The teens revealed similar concerns despite differences in gender and/or sexual histories. Despite school...
Chronic stress during pregnancy or even prior to gestation can negatively affect offspring´s neurobehavioural development. Several studies have shown, that offspring who had experienced excessive stress during gestation had higher rates of cognitive and mood disorders later during adolescence or in adulthood. Hippocampal neurons play a crucial role in the regulation of behavior, mainly in anxiety-related behaviors and spatial learning and memory. Recently, it has been shown, that excessive stress even prio...
Maternal obesity increases the risk for pregnancy complications and adverse neonatal outcome and it has also been associated with long lasting adverse effects in the offspring, including increased body fat mass, insulin resistance and increased risk for premature cardiovascular disease. Lifestyle interventions in pregnancy have produced none or modest effects in reducing adverse pregnancy outcomes in obese mothers. Metformin use in Obese Pregnant women trial was associated with reduced adverse pregnancy out...
This study aimed to analyse depression and anxiety symptoms changes from the first to the third trimester of pregnancy in non-smokers versus quitters versus continuous smokers, and the contribution of depression and anxiety symptoms to continued tobacco consumption during pregnancy.
Chronic inflammation during pregnancy (e.g., preeclampsia, diabetes) is linked to increased risk for offspring neurodevelopmental disorders such as autism spectrum disorder (ASD). However, mediators of such exposures that could be targeted with maternal intervention are unclear, as few chronic gestational inflammation models have been tested. One potential mediator is interleukin-17 (IL-17), a pro-inflammatory cytokine implicated in neurodevelopmental disorders and gestational disease. To test chronic mater...
Fetal environment has a substantial influence on an individual's health throughout their life course. Animal models of hypertensive disease of pregnancy (HDP) have demonstrated adverse health outcomes among offspring exposed to HDP in utero. While there are numerous descriptions of the neonatal, infant, and pediatric outcomes of human offspring affected by HDP, there are few data in United States populations on later life outcomes, including mortality.
Vitamin A and D deficiency is prevalent in pregnant women worldwide. Both vitamins are involved in fetal skeletal development. A positive association between maternal vitamin D levels and offspring bone mineral density (BMD) at adulthood has been observed. The impact of maternal vitamin A status in pregnancy on offspring peak bone mass remains unclear.
The present study aimed to conduct a systematic review and meta-analysis to evaluate the evidence on the association of maternal smoking during pregnancy with offspring body composition in childhood, adolescence and adulthood. MEDLINE, Web of Science and LILACS databases were searched. Reference lists were also screened. We included original studies, conducted in humans, that assessed the association of maternal smoking during pregnancy with offspring body mass index (BMI) and overweight in childhood, adole...
Missing from the discussion of youth and gun violence are qualitative data from diverse youth regarding their perspectives on gun violence in their communities and what will help prevent or reduce such violence. The purpose of this exploratory study was therefore to gain a deeper understanding of urban teens' perceptions of gun violence in the context of their daily lives and gather their ideas for reducing or preventing gun violence through meaningful discussions with urban teens.
Maternal smoking is currently a public health concern and has been associated with a number of complications in the offspring. E-cigarettes are gaining popularity as a 'safer' alternative to tobacco cigarettes during pregnancy, however, there are a limited number of studies to suggest that it is actually 'safe'.
Maternal HBV or HCV carrier status is a cause for concern regarding both the course of pregnancy and the short-term perinatal outcomes. Our main aim was to evaluate whether offspring born to carrier mothers during pregnancy, also suffer from long-term pediatric respiratory morbidity (until 18 years of age).
Maternal stress is a key risk factor in the development of offspring. We previously identified prenatal cold stress-induced anxiety-like behavior reduced in the offspring of rats along with negative feedback regulation from the maternal hippocampus on the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis during prenatal cold stress. However, the precise function of the maternal hypothalamus response to cold stress during late pregnancy in rats has not yet been determined. Therefore, we examined proteins in the hypo...
