Chronic umbilical cord compression results in accelerated maturation of lung and brown adipose tissue in the sheep fetus during late gestation


, : Chronic umbilical cord compression results in accelerated maturation of lung and brown adipose tissue in the sheep fetus during late gestation. American Journal of Physiology. Endocrinology and Metabolism 289(3): E456-E465

Umbilical cord compression (UCC) sufficient to reduce umbilical blood flow by 30% for 3 days, results in increased fetal plasma cortisol and catecholamines that are likely to promote maturation of the fetal lung and brown adipose tissue (BAT).
