Fetal Risk Summary

A group of 20 women in premature labor, treated with oral albuterol (4 mg every 4 hours for several weeks), was matched with a control group of women who were not in premature labor (36). The mean gestational ages at delivery for the treated and nontreated patients were 36.4 and 37.0 weeks, respectively. No significant differences were found between the groups for cord blood concentrations of insulin, triiodothyronine (T3), thyroxine (T4), and thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH). However, growth hormone levels were significantly higher in the treated group than in control patients (36.5 vs. 17.4 ng mL, respectively, p

Maternal and paternal factors associated with fetal growth

The issue of maternal nutrition and fetal growth has been addressed in many animal studies, mostly addressing the issue of fetal programming in growth restricted models, although more recent work has focused on the problem of maternal obesity and obesogenic diets. In the human, the studies of Barker have addressed the issue of fetal programming in the human intrauterine growth restricted (IUGR) model.9 The Barker hypothesis notes that poor nutrition in utero leads to fetal adaptations that produce permanent changes in insulin and glucose metabolism. For example, intra-uterine growth restriction followed by increased availability of food and or decreased activity result in dysregulation such as the metabolic syndrome.10 Lucas et al., however, suggested that Relative to maternal factors, paternal anthropometric factors have limited impact on fetal growth. Morton reported that half siblings of with the mother as the common parent, the correlation of birthweight between the half siblings...

18 Passage of drugs to the unborn and fetal kinetics

Transfer of drugs to the fetus is inevitable. Most drugs have a lower molecular weight than 600-800, and will therefore be able to cross the placenta. The notable exceptions to this rule arc the conjugated steroid and peptide hormones such as insulin and growth hormone. However, larger molecules (e.g. vitamin B 2 and immunoglobulins) do cross the placenta via specific receptor-mediated processes. It should be noted that modified immunoglobulins used therapeutically, e.g. abciximab, do not cross the placenta but are metabolized by the placenta because they are only Fab fragments and do not have Fc terminals (see also Chapter 2.12 Miller 2003).

2 Biological Underpinnings Of Postpartum Mood Disorders

Growth hormone response to apomorphine was accentuated in at-risk women who became symptomatic during the postpartum Alternatively, another group focused on at-risk women immediately in the puerperium to determine whether their response to a neuroendocrine challenge could predict the likelihood of them experiencing mood instability (69). Women with a history of BPAD or schizoaffective disorder who experienced an illness relapse during the puerperium had an exaggerated growth hormone response on postpartum day 3 (prior to onset of mood instability) to an injection of apomorphine, an agent that stimulates postsynaptic dopamine receptors in the median eminence of the hypothalamus. The authors propose that the estrogen-induced alterations in dopaminergic function during pregnancy lead to hypersensitivity of postsynaptic dopamine receptors after delivery and thus contribute to mood changes in at-risk women (67-71).

Risk factors for gestational diabetes mellitus

In another study, Jang et al.10 demonstrated that in the racially homogeneous population of Seoul, Korea, besides pre-pregnancy BMI, age, weight gain and parental history of diabetes, short stature is an independent risk factor for GDM. Accordingly, Kousta et al.11 reported that European and South Asian women with previous GDM were shorter than control women from the same ethnic groups, perhaps due to a common pathophysiological mechanism underlying GDM and the determination of final adult height. Others have reported similar results.12 Short stature

Eruption Cyst In Infants

Ectopic Tooth Eruption Infants

If a central eruption cyst or central mandibular incisor is present in the lower jaw, the diagnosis of median cleft syndrome must be excluded. This infant had median cleft syndrome. A single central maxillary incisor also may be seen in growth hormone deficiency.

2138 Cytotoxic anthracydine antibiotics

A case report (Nakajima 2004) showed again that cytotoxic therapy (doxorubicin and ifosfamide) during the second third trimester may lead to healthy but growth-restricted children. This applies also to a study of 57 pregnant breast cancer patients who were treated with FAC (5-fIuorouracil, doxorubicin, cyclophosphamide) (Hahn 2006). However, doxorubicin is known to have cardiotoxic side effects there are three case reports of young pregnant women who had received doxorubicin treatment in their childhood or youth and, although their cardiac function appeared normal prior to pregnancy, they were decompensating at the end of pregnancy (Pan 2002). Five ease reports describe combination therapy with idarubicin after the first trimester (Claahsen 1998, Reynoso 1994). In the first case, fetal death occurred after the beginning of the therapy, whereas the second report describes birth of a growth-restricted but otherwise healthy baby. The third child was born in week 28 and suffered from...

21310 Folate antagonistic antimetabolites

In children with characteristic malformations (skull ossification defects, facial dysmorphism, CNS anomalies with lower intelligence, and defects of the extremities) and intrauterine growth restriction, the fatter seems to persist during postnatal development, resulting in short stature. During subsequent development, both normal intellectual development and mental retardation were observed. took phenprocoumon and other drugs weighed 1600 g at birth and was growth restricted, had an inguinal hernia, and was highly irritable for 14 days.

Protective response to hypoglycemia

Falling plasma glucose concentrations are sensed in the hypothalamus and other regions of the brain as well as in the hepatic portal vein and the carotid artery. Glucose sensing in visceral sites sends the information to the brain via the cranial nerve (especially vagous nerve) and, as a result of a complex integration within the brain, these signals are responsible for the autonomic response (sympathetic and parasympathetic) organized within the hypothalamus. Through mechanisms that include increased autonomic activity, hypoglycemia causes reduced pancreatic beta-cell insulin secretion and increased alfa-cell glucagon secretion. Hypoglycemia, involving hypothalamo-hypophyseal neuroendocrine mechanisms, also causes an increased secretion of growth hormone and adrenocorticotropin. The exact mechanism involved in this process is not well known. The glucokinase-mediated sensing in pancreatic beta-cells remains the best characterized mechanism of response to glucose falling. Similar...

During diabetic pregnancy

Diabetic pregnancy is characterized per se by an impairment of the counter-regulatory response. As observed by experimental studies performed in diabetic dogs, epinephrine and glucagon response to hypoglycemia is impaired during pregnancy.15 Moreover, these data have also been confirmed in human pregnancy by using the hypoglycemic clamp technique.16,17 In intensively treated Type 1 diabetic pregnant women a consistent lower epinephrine and glucagon response was found with respect to nondiabetic nonpregnant women. In addition, the glycemic thresholds for epinephrine and growth hormone secretion resulted decreased. This may be the consequence, at least in part, of intensive insulin treatment of the patients. Impaired secretion of both hormones, especially that of glucagon, has also been demonstrated in nondiabetic pregnant women. The exact mechanisms involved in the reduction of glucagon and epinephrine secretion during pregnancy are not completely clear. Nevertheless, as for glucagon,...

2151 Hypothalamic releasing hormones

Growth hormone releasing hormone (GHRH) Somatoslatit L Jibits the release of both growth hormone and TSH. In this respect, it is unique among the hypothalamic hormones. Therapeutically, it is used for carcinoids and to lower the growth hormone concentration in acromegaly_A synthetic

Pathogenesis and natural history

These vessels often grow on the surface of the retina, at the optic nerve, or on the iris, and are characterized by increased fragility. They may penetrate the outlining membrane of the retina and become adherent, with their accompanying fibrovascular tissue, to the posterior vitreous. Visual loss in patients with proliferative retinopathy may be caused by either vitreous hemorrhage (VH), tractional retinal detachment following vitreous contraction, or neovascular glaucoma.44,46,47 Several growth factors have been shown to be involved in the process of neovascularization, including vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF),48-57 insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I),58-65 growth hormone (GH),66-72 pigment-epithelium-derived factor (PEDF),73-79 placental growth factor (PGF),80 basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF),81 hepatocyte growth factor (HGF),82-84 and, recently, also erythropoietin (EPO).85-87

Impact of pregnancy on the development and progression of diabetic retinopathy

Several mechanisms have been suggested by which pregnancy may lead to progression of retinopathy. Pregnancy is associated with a dramatic change in the hormonal milieu. Human placental lactogen (hPL) is produced in enormous amounts by the placenta, reaching a production rate of about 1 g day at term. Due to its growth hormone-like activity, hPL may play an important role in the effect of pregnancy on diabetic retinopathy, as mentioned earlier.66,67,69 The vascular changes induced by the elevated levels of estrogen and progesterone during pregnancy may also contribute to progression of retinopathy.

37 Medications that affect lactation

Medications with an antidopamine effect, such as phenothiazine, haloperidol, and other neuroleptics, such as sulpiride and risperidone, as well as the antihypertensive a-methyldopa, and medications used to stimulate intestinal peristalsis, domperidone and metoclopramide, can, as a result of increasing the secretion of prolactin, stimulate milk production. The sympathicoiytic action of reserpine can have the same effect. Growth hormone and thyrotrophin-releasing hormone can also enhance milk production. Domperidone and metoclopramide are occasionally used for this purpose - for example. 10 mg metoclopramid three times a day (for a maximum of 7-10 days) and then tapering off the dosage for 2-5 days is sometimes recommended. Domperidone (not available in the USA) is less capable of crossing the blood-brain barrier, and therefore the risk of extrapyramidal symptoms is remote. Due to a molecular mass of 426, protein binding 90 , and poor oral bioavailability, the relative dose for a fully...

Factors related to intrauterine growth

Blood levels of ghrelin and fetal growth Ghrelin is a 28-amino acid peptide primarily secreted by the stomach, hypothalamus and placenta.29-31 It stimulates the secretion of growth hormone and apparently decreases fat utilization and hence increases adiposity. As it is found in the umbilical cord plasma in full term infants, it was considered that it may play a role in fetal energy balance and growth. In a recent study Farquar et al.30 found that the umbilical cord levels of ghrelin were inversely related to birthweight z-score and to cord blood glucose. They also found a positive correlation between grelin plasma levels and gestational age in AGA or LGA infants, but a negative correlation in SGA infants. Ghrelin concentrations were higher in the SGA than in AGA and LGA infants, but were independent of maternal diabetes. In a recent study Ng et al.31 found reduced plasma ghrelin levels in 38 newborns of mothers with Type 1 PGD treated with insulin, in comparison to 40 infants of...

Seth Guller Yuehong Ma and Men Jean Lee Abstract

Although the etiology of intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) and preeclampsia (PE) remains unclear, most investigators attribute the initial insult to poor utero-placental perfusion due to defective trophoblast invasion that ultimately compromises fetal well-being.1 3 The resultant hypoxia curtails the remodeling of uterine vessels by invasive cytotrophoblasts in the second trimester.1,2 Our results suggest that mediators of fetal stress i.e., glucocorticoids (GC) may in fact alter placental gene expression and contribute to the destruction of the placental villous network in pregnancies with IUGR PE. We will present a molecular model through which GC, induced in response to fetal stress, promotes the placental villous damage observed in pregnancies associated with IUGR PE. This model incorporates the roles of trophoblast plasminogen activator inhibitor (PAI)-l, mesenchymal extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins, and their regulation by transforming growth factor (TGF)-(3. We will...

Photos Of Infants With Marfan

Neonatal Hypothyroidism

A term newborn with Marfan syndrome who had a birth weight of 3720 g and a length of 54 cm. Note the tall stature with long slim limbs and hypotonia. In Marfan syndrome, limbs are disproportionately long and trunk length is usually normal resulting in a low upper lower segment ratio. Ophthalmologic and cardiovascular pathologies, such as dislocation of the lens and aneurys-mal dilatation of the aorta, are usually noted after the neonatal period. Figure 3.98.

Ophthalmologic and cardiovascular pathologies, such as dislocation of the lens and aneurys-mal dilatation of the aorta, are usually noted after the neonatal period.

Effects of hormone replacement therapy on obesity and body composition

Central abdominal fat is associated with increased insulin resistance.104 The effect of HRT on accretion of visceral adiposity remains unclear. While short-term studies have shown that it is preventive, longer term studies fail to support this finding.98 HRT reduces lean body mass and waist to hip ratio. However, this effect was rather small although statistically significant.105 In a study of young postmenopausal women of normal range body weights, previous use of HRT was associated with reduced intra-abdominal fat, but not reduced abdominal subcutaneous fat, sagital diameter, fat-free mass, total fat, insulin sensitivity or body weight.106 In a small RCT conducted on 57 postmenopausal women, adding growth hormone to HRT increased significantly lean body weight and reduced fat mass further more than that achieved by HRT alone.107 In overweight postmenopausal women with Type 2 diabetes, HRT reduced the waist-to-hip ratio but not the total fat mass.57

Use of rapidacting insulin analogs in pregnancies complicated by diabetes

There are three situations in life in which rapid normalization of blood glucose levels increase the risk for deterioration of diabetic retinopathy puberty, pregnancy, and rapid normalization of blood glucose levels. If two of these events occur in the same patient, the risk for retinopathy progression is potentiated.33,34 All three situations are associated with increased serum concentrations of growth-promoting fac-tors.33 It is hypothesized that when the blood glucose level is rapidly decreased, there is increased retinal extravasation of serum proteins. If there is a concomitant increase in the concentration of serum growth-promoting factors, a predisposed retina may deteriorate. Pregnancy per se is the most frequently reported situation in which rapid normalization of blood glucose is associated with deterioration of retinal status. Normal pregnancy is associated with high concentrations of many growth-promoting factors.35-40 Hill et al.37 reported that a potent mitogen and...

Diabetogenic forces of normal pregnancy increase insulin requirements10

Thus, the amount of insulin required to treat Type 1 diabetic women throughout pregnancy needs to be sufficient to compensate for (1) increasing caloric needs (2) increasing adiposity (3) decreasing exercise and (4) increasing anti-insulin or diabetogenic hormones of pregnancy. The major diabetogenic hormones of the placenta are human chorionic somatomam-motropin (hCS), previously referred to as human placental lactogen (hPL), estrogen and progesterone. Also, serum maternal cortisol levels (both bound and free) are increased. In addition, at the elevated levels seen during gestation, prolactin has a diabetogenic effect.10 The strongest insulin antagonist of pregnancy is hCS. This placental hormone appears in increasing concentrations beginning at 10 weeks of gestation. By 20 weeks of gestation, plasma hCS levels are increased 300-fold, and by term the turnover rate is 1000 mg dL. The mechanism of action whereby hCS raises plasma glucose levels is unclear, but probably originates from...

Hormones and hormone antagonists

There are no data on the use during breastfeeding of the other hypothalamic and pituitary hormones, or their synthetic analogs cor-ticorelin, sermorelin, somatorelin, cetrorelix, chorionic gonadotrophin, gonadorelin, goserelin, leuprolide acetate, menotropin, nafarelin, trip-torelin, urogonadotropin, octreotide, somatostatin, tetracosactid, somatropin (growth hormone), follitrophin-a, follitrophin-3, urofol-litrophin, argipressin, lypressin, ornipressin, lanreotide, and terli pressin. This also holds true for the oxytocin-antagonist atosiban and the somatropin-receptor antagonist pegvisomant.

Calculating Your

To s e e i f yo u ' r e t h e r i g h t weight for your height, calculate you r BMI (body mass index). Divide your weight in pounds by you r h ei g ht i n i nches sq u a r ed , a n d multiply by 703. For exa mple, a woman who is 5ft 7in (1.7m) tall and 1381b ( 65 kg) would calculate her BMI as follows

Anorexia nervosa

Many women have problems with their eating or maintain a low weight but do not want to be labelled as having 'anorexia' or an eating disorder. The reasons, however, for acknowledging the problems and seeking help are important. Where women are of significantly low weight when they conceive, then their babies are at greater risk of poor growth in utero, low birth weight and premature birth and a much higher rate of neo-natal death. There are at least two ways of deciding if someone is underweight. In current diagnostic criteria for anorexia nervosa it is said to be 'body weight less than 85 per cent of that expected for height and age. Most doctors will calculate someone's Body Mass Index or BMI. You can do this yourself by multiplying your height in metres by itself. You then take your weight in kilograms and divide it by the answer to the first sum. A score of below 20 would be considered underweight and a score of above

Big Boys

Children with short parents will usually start out small at birth, usually below the 5th percentile, and stay in about the same growth channel throughout childhood and adolescence. They will enter puberty at an average age, and generally they will reach an adult height similar to that of their parents. Another normal growth pattern found in some children is called constitutional growth delay. These children are usually of average size at birth, and their parents are usually average in height. After initially growing at a normal pace, these infants will grow more slowly, usually starting in the second half of the first year of life. This slow growth continues until about 18 to 24 months of age. By then, the children often will have dropped below the 5th percentile line on the growth chart. From then on, they will grow about two and a half inches per year, which is similar to the growth rate of other children their age. Children with constitutional growth delay remain short through...

Pathogenesis

Other glucose counter-regulatory hormones include catecholamines, growth hormone and cortisol. In advancing gestation, human placental lactogen and prolactin also play a role, and have been incriminated in the pathogenesis of DKA. Owing the relative lack of insulin, increased levels of catecholamines and cortisol (due to stress and dehydration) result in significantly increased lipolysis in the adipose tissue and delivery of free fatty acids to the liver. Beta-oxidation of these fatty acids leads to the formation (up to 300 ) of ketone bodies, namely P-hydroxybutyrate and acetoacetate, concomitant with a decrease in ketone used by muscle. As ketone bodies are acidic, ion concentrations in body fluids increases and so the pH decreases.

Celiac Disease

Symptoms and Diagnosis Symptoms directly involving the digestive system may or may not occur. Irritability is one of the most common symptoms in children. Other symptoms include recurring abdominal pain bloated belly chronic diarrhea weight loss or slow weight gain pale, foul-smelling stools unexplained anemia (low red blood cell count) gas behavior changes decreased muscle mass fatigue and delayed growth short stature (height). Malnutrition can be a severe complication of celiac disease. Particularly if untreated for years, the disease also puts a person at increased risk for lymphoma and adenocarcinoma (two forms of cancer that can develop in the intestine), osteoporosis (in which the bones become brittle and weak), and short stature.

Clitoris Newborn

Penile Agenesis

Ambiguous genitalia in a male infant with bilaterally descended testes and micropenis. The testosterone level was within normal limits for the newborn. Human chorionic growth hormone stimulation test (performed to see if the testes could respond to and produce testosterone) revealed inadequate testicular function. Exogenous administration of testosterone gave a good response with normal development of male genitalia.

PBBsand PCBs

PCBs have been found in breast milk and body fat (258,259). Rogan (260) described cola-colored babies who were born with discolored skin following maternal exposure to PCBs in cooking oil. These children exhibited lung abnormalities, short stature, failure to thrive, developmental delay, mental retardation, and abnormal behavior patterns. Kuratsune and colleagues (261) described an epidemic called Yusho disease in Japanese infants whose mothers consumed PCB-contaminated cooking oil. They had transient (up to 6 months) dark-brown pigmentation of the skin and mucosa IUGR in 17 skull, dental, and bone abnormalities in most infants but no residual neurological sequelae.

Growth Disorders

A growth disorder is any problem in infants, children, or teens that prevents them from meeting realistic expectations of height and or weight. These disorders can result in failure to thrive in infancy and short stature or failure to gain height and weight appropriately in childhood, and they may involve delayed sexual development in teens. There are many causes of disordered growth including genetic, hormonal, and nutritional problems. A variety of chronic medical conditions can also interfere with growth in children. (True growth disorders also must be distinguished from normal variant patterns of growth seen frequently in children familial, or genetic, short stature and constitutional growth delay. For more information on these patterns and other aspects of your child's growth, see Chapter 17, Growth and Development. ) Although it's common for newborns to lose a little weight in the first few days, some infants continue to show slower than expected weight gain and growth, a...

Trisomy

Low Papp Pregnancy

T18 is characterized by severe mental retardation, growth retardation, and hypotonia, with multiple systems affected. Most babies with T18 die within the first weeks after birth, and 90 or more die within 1 yr (266). A major obstetrical issue is that T18 pregnancies tend to be small for their gestational age and are quite often confused for growth-restricted but potentially healthy pregnancies. The ceasarean section rate in T18 pregnancies coming to term is more than 60 (267), and other late pregnancy interventions are common but without long-term benefit. For this reason, it is beneficial to identify T18 early in pregnancy when safe termination can be offered.

Pregnancy

Serum hormones stimulate breast growth during pregnancy nipple growth is related to serum prolactin levels areolar growth is related to serum placental lactogen (Cregan & Hartmann, 1999). Estrogen and progesterone also exert their specific effect on the breast during pregnancy the ductal system proliferates and differentiates under the influence of estrogen, whereas progesterone promotes an increase in size of the lobes, lobules, and alveoli. Adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) and growth hormone combine synergistically with prolactin and progesterone to promote mammary growth.

Polyploid PHM

Growth restriction.73233 It must be highlighted that more than 80 of fetuses with a triploid partial mole (diandric) present with symmetrical growth restriction, which is important from a differential diagnosis point of view. In these cases, abnormal umbilical artery flow velocity waveforms have been reported as early as 12 weeks of gestation35 and the fetus may already appear growth restricted with crown-rump length measurements below the 10th centile for gestational age.32,33 Structural fetal defects are observed antenatally in about 93 of all the cases.7,32,33 The most common are abnormalities of the hands, bilateral cerebral ventricu-lomegaly, heart anomalies and micrognathia but these cannot be routinely diagnosed in the first trimester of pregnancy.
