Risk of spontaneous preterm birth in relation to maternal exposure to intimate partner violence during pregnancy in Peru
(Springer Nature, 2013-04)
Intimate partner violence (IPV) is increasingly recognized as an important cause of maternal and perinatal morbidity. We assessed the relation between IPV and risk of spontaneous preterm birth (PTB) among Peruvian women. ...
Maternal blood mitochondrial DNA copy number and placental abruption risk: results from a preliminary study
(e-Century Publishing, 2013-06-25)
Oxidative stress and impaired placental function – pathways implicated in the pathogenesis of placental abruption – have their origins extending to mitochondrial dysfunction. To the best of our knowledge, there are no ...
Anthocyanin-rich purple corn extract and its effects on the blood pressure of adults
(SAGE Publications, 2013-03-28)
This small-scale pilot study studied the potential benefit of taking a concentrated dose of anthocyanin 300 mg once a day for 3 weeks (purple corn extract) on blood pressure among untreated Peruvian adults with mild-to-moderate ...
Genome-wide and candidate gene association studies of placental abruption
(e-Century Publishing, 2013-09-12)
Placental abruption (PA), a pregnancy-related vascular disorder, is a leading cause of maternal and perinatal morbidity and mortality. The success of identifying genetic susceptibility loci for PA, a multi-factorial heritable ...
A genome-wide association study of variations in maternal cardiometabolic genes and risk of placental abruption
(e-Century Publishing, 2012-11-05)
Accumulating evidence suggests that placental abruption has a complex multifactorial pathogenesis that involves cardiovascular risk and metabolic dysfunction. However, comprehensive assessment of variations in genes involved ...
Risk of placental abruption in relation to migraines and headaches
Background Migraine, a common chronic-intermittent disorder of idiopathic origin characterized by severe debilitating headaches and autonomic nervous system dysfunction, and placental abruption, the premature separation ...
Risk of placental abruption in relation to maternal depressive, anxiety and stress symptoms
Background Little is known about the influence of psychiatric factors on the etiology of placental abruption (PA), an obstetrical condition that complicates 1–2% of pregnancies. We examined the risk of PA in relation to ...
Circadian clock-related genetic risk scores and risk of placental abruption
(Elsevier Ltd., 2015-12)
Introduction The circadian clock plays an important role in several aspects of female reproductive biology. Evidence linking circadian clock-related genes to pregnancy outcomes has been inconsistent. We sought to examine ...
Maternal sleep duration and complaints of vital exhaustion during pregnancy is associated with placental abruption
(Informa Healthcare, 2015-02)
OBJECTIVE Sleep disorders are associated with cardiovascular complications and preterm delivery (PTD). Insufficient sleep results in metabolic alterations and increased inflammation, both known to contribute to placental ...
Placental mitochondrial DNA content and placental abruption: a pilot study
(BioMed Central, 2015-09-16)
Background Mitochondrial biogenesis and adequate energy production are important for embryogenesis and placentation. Previous studies documented alterations in maternal blood mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) copy number—a marker ...
