Maternal and fetal characteristics affecting alcohol's teratogenicity

, : Maternal and fetal characteristics affecting alcohol's teratogenicity. Neurobehavioral Toxicology and Teratology 8(4): 329-334

Thousands of children are born each year with alcohol-related birth defects. However, despite comparable levels of prenatal alcohol exposure, some children are affected less severely than others, whereas others do not appear to be affected at all. Epidemiological investigations and experimental studies in animals suggest that maternal or fetal genetic factors; maternal age or parity, and pattern of drinking are important risk factors affecting alcohol's actions on the embryo/fetus. Identifying these and other risk factors may provide a means for cost-effective prevention efforts.

From 1964 to 1982, 317 patients with malignant tumors of the nasal cavity were treated by radiotherapy. All had been proved pathologically prior to treatment. The over-all 5- and 10-year survival rates were 42.6% and 32.7%. Those of T1N0 lesions w...

Activation of the angiotensin 1-7/Mas receptor (MasR) axis counteracts angiotensin II (Ang II)-mediated cardiovascular disease. Recombinant human angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (rhACE2) generates Ang 1-7 from Ang II. We hypothesized that the ther...

Neutron scattering reveals a complex dynamics in polypeptide chains, with two main onsets of anharmonicity whose physical origin and biological role are still debated. In this study the dynamics of strategically selected homomeric polypeptides is...
