Status of population-based birth defects surveillance programs before and after the Zika public health response in the United States.

The 2016 Zika public health response in the United States highlighted the need for birth defect surveillance (BDS) programs to collect population-based data on birth defects potentially related to Zika as rapidly as possible through enhanced case ascertainment and reporting. The National Birth Defects Prevention Network (NBDPN) assessed BDS program activities in the United States before and after the Zika response.


Vital Signs: Zika-Associated Birth Defects and Neurodevelopmental Abnormalities Possibly Associated with Congenital Zika Virus Infection - U.S. Territories and Freely Associated States, 2018.

Zika virus infection during pregnancy causes serious birth defects and might be associated with neurodevelopmental abnormalities in children. Early identification of and intervention for neurodevelopmental problems can improve cognitive, social, and behavioral functioning.

Maternal antihypertensive medication use and selected birth defects in the National Birth Defects Prevention Study.

There are limited data on the relationship between antihypertensive medication use in early pregnancy and risk of birth defects.


Pregnant women co-infected with HIV and Zika: Outcomes and birth defects in infants according to maternal symptomatology.

Zika virus (ZIKV) was first isolated in Uganda in 1947. In Brazil, the first reported case of ZIKV infection was in May 2015. Additionally, dengue (DENV) is endemic and there has been a recent outbreak of chikungunya (CHIKV). Since the clinical manifestations of different arboviral infections (AI) can be similar, definitive diagnosis requires laboratory testing.

Update: Interim Guidance for Preconception Counseling and Prevention of Sexual Transmission of Zika Virus for Men with Possible Zika Virus Exposure - United States, August 2018.

Zika virus infection can occur as a result of mosquitoborne or sexual transmission of the virus. Infection during pregnancy is a cause of fetal brain abnormalities and other serious birth defects (1,2). CDC has updated the interim guidance for men with possible Zika virus exposure who 1) are planning to conceive with their partner, or 2) want to prevent sexual transmission of Zika virus at any time (3). CDC now recommends that men with possible Zika virus exposure who are planning to conceive with their par...

Skills attained by infants with congenital Zika syndrome: Pilot data from Brazil.

The recent Zika outbreak and its link to microcephaly and other birth defects in infants exposed in utero have garnered widespread international attention. Based on the severity of birth defects the extent of impairment in these infants is expected to be profound; however, virtually nothing is known regarding the developmental and behavioral sequela of congenital Zika syndrome. This pilot study collected parent-reported patterns of development and sleep in 47 infants with confirmed congenital Zika syndrome ...

Social Media Mining for Birth Defects Research: A Rule-Based, Bootstrapping Approach to Collecting Data for Rare Health-Related Events on Twitter.

Although birth defects are the leading cause of infant mortality in the United States, methods for observing human pregnancies with birth defect outcomes are limited.

Estimating under-observation and the full size of the 2016 Zika epidemic in Rio de Janeiro.

The 2015-16 Zika epidemic spread quickly from north to south in Brazil. Two striking features were the much higher incidence in young adult women due to sexual transmission, and the serious congenital malformations and miscarriages associated to Zika infection in pregnant women. In this paper we use case reporting data along with live-birth records to reconstruct the full size of the epidemic through a Bayesian probabilistic graph model representing the Zika transmission probabilities of observation (case r...

Validating Obstructive Genitourinary Defects in an Environment of Potential Overdiagnosing.

The mission of the Department of Defense Birth and Infant Health Registry (Registry) is to conduct ongoing surveillance of birth defects among military families, following the National Birth Defects Prevention Network (NBDPN) case definitions. From 2009 to 2011, a 30% increase in diagnoses of obstructive genitourinary defects (OGDs) was observed in the Registry. To explore the source of this finding, we identified the location with the highest increase and conducted a validation study for OGD cases.

Why is congenital Zika syndrome asymmetrically distributed among human populations?

Zika virus (ZIKV) is a health burden due to the severe neurological abnormalities that arise after congenital infection. Although multiple experimental studies have linked ZIKV with neural birth defects, the scientific community has not been able to fully explain why Congenital Zika Syndrome (CZS) was only apparent after the virus entered the Americas and why these occurrences have an asymmetric geographic distribution. Here, we review the impact of ZIKV infection on human populations by exploring evolution...

Ondansetron for Treatment of Nausea and Vomiting of Pregnancy and the Risk of Specific Birth Defects.

To use data from two large studies of birth defects to describe time trends in ondansetron use for the treatment of first-trimester nausea and vomiting of pregnancy and to investigate associations, either previously reported or undescribed, between first-trimester ondansetron use and major birth defects.

Descriptive epidemiology of cerebellar hypoplasia in the National Birth Defects Prevention Study.

Cerebellar hypoplasia is a rare disorder of cerebellar formation in which the cerebellum is not completely developed, smaller than it should be, or completely absent. The prevalence of cerebellar hypoplasia at birth is unknown, and little is known about epidemiological risk factors. Using data from the National Birth Defects Prevention Study (NBDPS), a population-based, case-control study, we analyzed clinical features and potential risk factors for nonsyndromic cerebellar hypoplasia.

A Unique Institutional Response to the Zika Virus Epidemic.

In 2015, Zika virus rapidly emerged as a concern for obstetric patients and health care providers as the disease spread geographically and it was discovered that Zika virus infection had the potential to cause devastating birth defects. Essentially overnight, obstetric care providers were faced with an influx of rapidly evolving information and an increased workload. New systems, workflows, and personnel were needed to effectively address the new patient care needs fueled by the burgeoning Zika virus epidem...

Surveillance of microcephaly and selected brain anomalies in Argentina: Relationship with Zika virus and other congenital infections.

Zika virus (ZIKV) vertical transmission may lead to microcephaly and other congenital anomalies. In March and April 2016, the first outbreak of ZIKV occurred in Argentina. The objective was to describe the surveillance of newborns with microcephaly and other selected brain anomalies in Argentina, and evaluation different etiologies.

Characteristics and survival of children with acute leukemia with Down syndrome or other birth defects in New York State.

Acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL) and acute myeloid leukemia (AML) among DS children have been studied extensively using data from clinical trials or institutional reports. The purpose of this study was to link population-based cancer and birth defects data to evaluate characteristics and survival of children with acute leukemia according to the presence of DS or other birth defects.

First-time maltreatment in children ages 2-10 with and without specific birth defects: A population-based study.

Children with disabilities are at an increased risk for maltreatment. However, little is known about the risk of maltreatment in children with specific types of birth defects. This study was conducted to determine whether the risk and predictors of maltreatment in children 2 to 10 years of age differ between those without and with specific birth defects: Down syndrome, cleft lip with/without cleft palate, and spina bifida. State administrative and United States Census data were linked to identify study grou...

Zika in travellers 1947-2017: a systematic review.

Travellers contributed substantially to the rapid spread of Zika virus (ZIKV). They act as sentinel and may unmask ongoing ZIKV transmission in countries where outbreaks have not yet been reported. Our objectives were to (i) describe the burden of ZIKV infections in international travellers over time; (ii) estimate the proportion of birth defects as a result of maternal ZIKV infection in travellers; (iii) track the extent of sexual transmission; (iv) summarize ZIKV infections in returning travellers as repo...

Zika Virus and the Non-Microcephalic Fetus: Why We Should Still Worry.

Zika virus (ZIKV) is a mosquito-transmitted flavivirus and was first linked to congenital microcephaly due to a large outbreak in Northeastern Brazil. Although the ZIKV epidemic is now in decline, pregnancies in large parts of the Americas remain at risk due to ongoing transmission and the potential for new outbreaks. This review presents why Zika virus is still a complex and worrisome public health problem with an expanding spectrum of birth defects and why ZIKV and related viruses may evade the immune res...

Comments on "Low carbohydrate diets may increase risk of neural tube defects".

Zika Virus Shedding in Semen of Symptomatic Infected Men.

Zika virus (ZIKV) is an emerging mosquito-borne flavivirus that has been linked to adverse birth outcomes. Previous reports have shown that person-to-person transmission can occur by means of sexual contact.

Drinking water disinfection byproducts and risk of orofacial clefts in the National Birth Defects Prevention Study.

Maternal exposure to drinking water disinfection byproducts (DBP)s may contribute to orofacial cleft (OFC) development, but studies are sparse and beset with limitations.

Thalidomide promotes degradation of SALL4, a transcription factor implicated in Duane Radial Ray Syndrome.

Frequently used to treat morning sickness, the drug thalidomide led to the birth of thousands of children with severe birth defects. Despite their teratogenicity, thalidomide and related IMiD drugs are now a mainstay of cancer treatment, however, the molecular basis underlying the pleiotropic biology and characteristic birth defects remains unknown. Here we show that IMiDs disrupt a broad transcriptional network through induced degradation of several CH zinc finger transcription factors, including SALL4, a ...

A Monolayer of Hexagonal Boron Nitride on Ir(111) as a Template for Cluster Superlattices.

The moiré of a monolayer of hexagonal boron nitride on Ir(111) is found to be a template for Ir, C and Au cluster superlattices. Using scanning tunneling microscopy, the cluster structure and epitaxial relation to the substrate, the cluster binding site, the role of defects, as well as the thermal stability of the cluster lattice are investigated. The Ir and C cluster superlattices display a high thermal stability, before they decay by intercalation and Smoluchowski ripening. Ab initio calculations explain...

Low Dietary Folate Interacts with MTHFD1 Synthetase Deficiency in Mice, a Model for the R653Q Variant, to Increase Incidence of Developmental Delays and Defects.

Suboptimal folate intake, a risk factor for birth defects, is common even in areas with folate fortification. A polymorphism in methylenetetrahydrofolate dehydrogenase 1 (MTHFD1), R653Q (MTHFD1 c.1958 G > A), has also been associated with increased birth defect risk, likely through reduced purine synthesis.

Projecting the end of the Zika virus epidemic in Latin America: a modelling analysis.

Zika virus (ZIKV) emerged in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) region in 2013, with serious implications for population health in the region. In 2016, the World Health Organization declared the ZIKV outbreak a Public Health Emergency of International Concern following a cluster of associated neurological disorders and neonatal malformations. In 2017, Zika cases declined, but future incidence in LAC remains uncertain due to gaps in our understanding, considerable variation in surveillance and the lack of...
