Antibiotic Use in Pregnancy, Abnormal Fetal Growth, and Development of Gestational Diabetes Mellitus.

 Antibiotics are commonly used in pregnancy. Prior studies have indicated that antibiotic use in pregnancy may affect birth weight, whereas data in nonpregnant individuals suggest that antibiotic exposure may increase diabetes risk. We evaluated the impact of antibiotic prescriptions during pregnancy on the prevalence of small for gestational age (SGA) and large for gestational age (LGA) birth weight and gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM).

Percentile charts of twin birth weight.

Birth weight of multiples is naturally lower than that of singletons. Since the incidence of twin pregnancy has risen in recent years, it seems reasonable to create standards of birth weight separately for twins. This could help in the objective assessment of small and large for gestational age twin newborns.

Both Mother and Infant Require a Vitamin D Supplement to Ensure That Infants' Vitamin D Status Meets Current Guidelines.

We examined the association between maternal vitamin D intake during breastfeeding with their infants' vitamin D status in infants who did or did not receive vitamin D supplements to determine whether infant supplementation was sufficient. Using plasma from a subset of breastfed infants in the APrON (Alberta Pregnant Outcomes and Nutrition) cohort, vitamin D status was measured by liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry. Maternal and infants' dietary data were obtained from APrON's dietary questionna...

Ambient air pollution, H19/DMR methylation in cord blood and newborn size: A pilot study in Zhengzhou City, China.

Prenatal exposure to air pollutants is believed to be associated with adverse birth outcomes. However, the potential mechanisms, especially the epigenetic modified effects, still remain unclear. This study was designed to explore the association of air pollution, H19/DMR methylation levels, and birth weight and length. A total of 527 mother-infant pairs were recruited from Houzhai Center Hospital, Zhengzhou. Air pollution data during the study period was collected. The methylation at H19 promoter region and...

Avoiding maternal vitamin D deficiency may lower blood glucose in pregnancy.

Vitamin D status is hypothesised to play a role in gestational glucose control. No studies to date have examined vitamin D in relation to changes in blood glucose in pregnancy. Thus, the aim was to examine if vitamin D in early pregnancy and vitamin D trajectory associate with blood glucose trajectory over pregnancy in a Swedish cohort. We also investigated the relation between maternal vitamin D status and excessive fetal growth.

Association of early pregnancy body mass index and children's birth weight with risk of being overweight in childhood.

To examine the potential effects of mothers' early pregnancy body mass index (BMI) and children's birth weight on childhood overweight/obesity at 1-6 years of age.

Neonatal outcomes of live-born term singletons in vertex presentation born to mothers with diabetes during pregnancy by mode of birth: a New South Wales population-based retrospective cohort study.

To investigate the association between the mode of birth and adverse neonatal outcomes of macrosomic (birth weight ≥4000 g) and non-macrosomic (birth weight

Impact of exposure to phenols during early pregnancy on birth weight in two Canadian cohort studies subject to measurement errors.

It is of interest to know whether early pregnancy exposure to phenols such as bisphenol-A (BPA) or triclosan (TCS) negatively impacts birth weight outcomes. Exposure to these chemicals is widespread in the Canadian population but obtaining accurate measurements of average exposure is difficult because these chemicals are rapidly excreted from the body, causing body levels to fluctuate both within and between days, as observed in a recent Canadian study (P4). This measurement error can attenuate the estimate...

Effect of Zinc Supplementation on Growth Outcomes in Children under 5 Years of Age.

(1) Background: The effects of zinc supplementation on child growth, and prior reviews of these studies, have shown mixed results. We aim to systematically review and meta-analyze randomized controlled trials evaluating effects of preventive zinc supplementation for 3 months or longer during pregnancy or in children up to age 5 years on pregnancy outcomes and child growth; (2) Methods: We searched PubMed, EMBASE, Cochrane Library, Web of Science, and trial registries for eligible trials up to October 10, 20...

Vitamin D Supplementation in Pregnancy and Lactation and Infant Growth.

Background It is unclear whether maternal vitamin D supplementation during pregnancy and lactation improves fetal and infant growth in regions where vitamin D deficiency is common. Methods We conducted a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial in Bangladesh to assess the effects of weekly prenatal vitamin D supplementation (from 17 to 24 weeks of gestation until birth) and postpartum vitamin D supplementation on the primary outcome of infants' length-for-age z scores at 1 year according to World ...

Severe vitamin D deficiency in the first trimester is associated with placental inflammation in high-risk singleton pregnancy.

Vitamin D deficiency during pregnancy is a worldwide epidemic. This study aimed to identify whether vitamin D deficiency in early pregnancy is associated with placental inflammation in high-risk pregnancy.

Prenatal exposure to polychlorinated biphenyls and fetal growth in British girls.

Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) are synthetic chemicals that bioaccumulate in the food chain. PCBs were used primarily for industrial applications due to their insulating and fire retardant properties, but were banned in the 1970s in the United States and in the 1980s in the United Kingdom, as adverse health effects following exposure were identified. Previous studies of populations with high PCB exposure have reported inverse associations with birth weight and gestational length. Birth weight is a powerfu...

Low maternal serum concentrations of mannose-binding lectin (MBL) are associated with the risk of shorter duration of pregnancy and lower birth weight.

Chronic inflammation has been implicated as the underlying mechanism responsible for the pathophysiology of preterm labor. Mannose-bindig lectin (MBL) plays a central role in the innate immune response and is thus an important component of the first line of defense. The aim of this study was to investigate whether serum concentrations of MBL correlated with the incidence of preterm birth and low birth weight in a cohort of women with signs of threatened preterm birth.

Association of preconception serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D concentrations with livebirth and pregnancy loss: a prospective cohort study.

Vitamin D deficiency during pregnancy is associated with adverse pregnancy outcomes, although the association between preconception vitamin D concentrations and livebirth is unknown. We aimed to assess the association between preconception vitamin D and pregnancy outcomes among women with proven fecundity.

Similarities in Maternal Weight and Birth Weight Across Pregnancies and Across Sisters.

Objectives The current study examined how prepregnancy body mass index (BMI), gestational weight gain, and birth weight cluster between births within women and between women who are sisters. Methods Using data from the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth 1979 cohort, we utilized nested, multivariable hierarchical linear models to examine the correlation of these three outcomes between births (n = 6006) to women (n = 3605) and sisters (n = 3170) so that we can quantify the clustering by sibship...

Association between maternal aflatoxin exposure during pregnancy and adverse birth outcomes in Uganda.

Aflatoxins are toxic metabolites of Aspergillus molds and are widespread in the food supply, particularly in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). Both in utero and infant exposure to aflatoxin B (AFB ) have been linked to poor child growth and development. The objective of this prospective cohort study was to investigate the association between maternal aflatoxin exposure during pregnancy and adverse birth outcomes, primarily lower birth weight, in a sample of 220 mother-infant pairs in Mukono district...
