Umbetov, Turakbai Zh.; Berdalinova, Akzhenis K.; Tusupkalieyv, Akylbek B.; Koishybayev, Arip K.; Zharilkasynov, Karaman Ye. – International Journal of Environmental and Science Education, 2016
According to the WHO data, preeclampsia develops during late pregnancy in 2-8% of women. Preeclampsia is a major cause of maternal and perinatal morbidity and mortality, therefore, the study of the morphological features of placental complex, taking into account gestational complications in postpartum women with severe preeclampsia is an important…

Mann, Joshua R.; McDermott, Suzanne; Bao, Haikun; Hardin, James; Gregg, Anthony – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2010
Autism spectrum disorders (ASD) are primarily inherited, but perinatal or other environmental factors may also be important. In an analysis of 87,677 births from 1996 through 2002, insured by the South Carolina Medicaid program, birth weight was significantly inversely associated with the odds of ASD (OR = 0.78, p = 0.001 for each additional…

Mann, Joshua R.; McDermott, Suzanne – Journal of Attention Disorders, 2011
Objective: To investigate the hypothesis that maternal genitourinary infection (GU) infection is associated with increased risk of ADHD. Method: The authors obtained linked Medicaid billing data for pregnant women and their children in South Carolina, with births from 1996 through 2002 and follow-up data through 2008. Maternal GU infections and…

Charkamyani, Forouzan; Hosseinkhani, Azadeh; Neisani Samani, Leila; Khedmat, Leila – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2019
Purpose: The role of a structured program of exercise training on the low-risk pregnancy in Iranian women undergoing "in vitro" fertilization (IVF) based on the reduction of gestational diabetes was examined. Method: A comparative quasi-experimental clinical trial with 170 IVF-pregnant women in two intervention and control groups was…

Bajalan, Zahra; Alimoradi, Zainab – Early Child Development and Care, 2020
Identifying children at the risk of developmental delay can improve their long-term prognosis. In this case--control study, mothers and infants aged 6--18 months referred to healthcare centres affiliated with Qazvin University of Medical Sciences were recruited from August to December 2017. The sample size consisted of 197 individuals in…

Chien, Yi-Ling; Chou, Miao-Chun; Chou, Wen-Jiun; Wu, Yu-Yu; Tsai, Wen-Che; Chiu, Yen-Nan; Gau, Susan Shur-Fen – Autism: The International Journal of Research and Practice, 2019
Prenatal and perinatal factors may increase the risk of autism spectrum disorder. However, little is known about whether unaffected siblings of probands with autism spectrum disorder also share the phenomenon and whether the prenatal/perinatal factors are related to the clinical severity of autistic symptoms. We compared the frequency of prenatal…

Clark, Ginerva A.; Humphries, Marisha L.; Perez, Jessica; Udoetuk, Stella; Bhatt, Kruti; Domingo, Jennifer P.; Garcia, Megan; Daubenmire, Patrick L.; Mansuri, Nazminbano; King, Maripat – Journal of Chemical Education, 2020
Knowledge of functional groups provides students with a language for organic chemistry. However, students in a health science chemistry course do not plan to be synthetic organic chemists and, therefore, need examples of how functional group chemistry is relevant to their vocational goals. We have developed a lab to demonstrate how simple…

Eze, Ugoji A. – Journal of Educational Leadership and Policy Studies, 2018
Autism spectrum disorder is a highly heritable neurodevelopmental disorder. More than 100 genetic polymorphisms have been associated with autism spectrum disorder, with Africa having greater genetic diversity than any other continent. Without doubt, because of this, genetic studies of autism in Africa could provide unique insights into the…

Roberts, Andrea L.; Lyall, Kristen; Rich-Edwards, Janet W.; Ascherio, Alberto; Weisskopf, Marc G. – Autism: The International Journal of Research and Practice, 2016
We sought to determine whether maternal (a) physical harm from intimate partner abuse during pregnancy or (b) sexual, emotional, or physical abuse before birth increased risk of autism spectrum disorder. We calculated risk ratios for autism spectrum disorder associated with abuse in a population-based cohort of women and their children (54,512…

Trott, Daniel W.; Harrison, David G. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2014
While hypertension has predominantly been attributed to perturbations of the vasculature, kidney, and central nervous system, research for almost 50 yr has shown that the immune system also contributes to this disease. Inflammatory cells accumulate in the kidneys and vasculature of humans and experimental animals with hypertension and likely…

Symons Downs, Danielle; Chasan-Taber, Lisa; Evenson, Kelly R.; Leiferman, Jenn; Yeo, SeonAe – Research Quarterly for Exercise and Sport, 2012
Purpose: In this review, we provide researchers and practitioners with an overview of the physical activity and pregnancy literature to promote prenatal physical activity, improve measurement, further elucidate the role of activity in reducing maternal health complications, and inform future research. Method: We examined past and present physical…

Wallace, Anna E.; Anderson, George M.; Dubrow, Robert – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2008
Associations between obstetric and parental psychiatric variables and subjects' Autism Diagnostic Interview-Revised (ADI-R) and Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS) domain scores were examined using linear mixed effects models. Data for the 228 families studied were provided by the Autism Genetic Resource Exchange. Hypertension (P =…

Mcconnell, D.; Mayes, R.; Llewellyn, G. – Journal of Intellectual Disability Research, 2008
Background: An increasing number of women with intellectual disability (ID) have children. Cross-sectional, clinical population data suggest that these women face an increased risk of delivering preterm and/or low birthweight babies. The aim of this study was to explore the prevalence of poor pregnancy and birth outcomes in women with ID and/or…
