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. ...
Morningness/eveningness chronotype, poor sleep quality, and daytime sleepiness in relation to common mental disorders among Peruvian college students
The study was designed to investigate the association between sleep disturbances and common mental disorders (CMDs) among Peruvian college students. A total of 2538 undergraduate students completed a self-administered ...
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 ...
Comparative performance of patient health questionnaire-9 and edinburgh postnatal depression scale for screening antepartum depression
(Elsevier B.V., 2014-06-20)
Objective: We sought to evaluate the psychometric properties of two widely used screening scales: the Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ-9) and Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale (EPDS) among pregnant Peruvian women. Methods: ...
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 ...
