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. ...
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 ...
Childhood abuse, intimate partner violence, and placental abruption among Peruvian women
(Elsevier B.V., 2019-03)
Purpose Experiencing childhood abuse (CA) or intimate partner violence (IPV) has been linked to adverse pregnancy outcomes. We examined whether CA history and current IPV are independently and jointly associated with ...
Prevalence and risk factors of gestational diabetes mellitus: findings from a universal screening feasibility program in Lima, Peru
(Springer Nature, 2018-07-18)
Background Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is a global public health concern with potential implications for the health of a mother and her offspring. However, data on the prevalence and risk factors of GDM in Latin ...
Placental genome and maternal-placental genetic interactions: a genome-wide and candidate gene association study of placental abruption
While available evidence supports the role of genetics in the pathogenesis of placental abruption (PA), PA-related placental genome variations and maternal-placental genetic interactions have not been investigated. Maternal ...
Cross-cultural validity of the spanish version of PHQ-9 among pregnant peruvian women: a rasch item response theory analysis
(Elsevier B.V., 2014-04)
Objective We sought to evaluate the validity of the Spanish language version of the patient health questionnaire-9 (PHQ-9) depression scale in a large sample of pregnant Peruvian women using Rasch item response theory ...
Genetic variations and risk of placental abruption: a genome-wide association study and meta-analysis of genome-wide association studies
(Elsevier Ltd., 2018-04-16)
Introduction Accumulating epidemiological evidence points to strong genetic susceptibility to placental abruption (PA). However, characterization of genes associated with PA remains incomplete. We conducted a genome-wide ...
Vaginal microbiome diversity and preterm birth: results of a nested case–control study in Peru
(Elsevier B.V., 2020-01)
Purpose Preterm birth (PTB) is a major cause of neonatal mortality. The vaginal microbiome is associated with PTB, but results vary across racial/ethnic populations. Some evidence suggests gestational age affects this ...
Using a body shape index (ABSI) and body roundness index (BRI) to predict risk of metabolic syndrome in peruvian adults
(SAGE Publishing, 2019-05-30)
Objective We examined the ability of anthropometric measures to predict the risk of metabolic syndrome (MetS) and its components in Peruvian adults. Methods Participants were 1,815 Peruvian adults. Body mass index ...
