Maternal Depression leads to alter children’s stress and Immune marker

Image
Researchers observed 125 children from birth to 10 years. At 10th year, mothers' and children's cortisol (CT) and secretory immunoglobulin (s-IgA) markers of stress and the immune system were measured, mother-child interaction were determined, mothers and children  underwent medical specialty diagnoses, and children's externalizing and internalizing symptoms were reported.
Depressed mothers had higher CT and s-IgA levels and displayed additional negative parenting, characterized by negative affect, intrusion, and criticism. Children of depressed mothers tended to exhibit psychiatricdisorders, have higher s-IgA levels, and show greater  social withdrawal.

Following mothers and children across the first decade of life, we found that exposure to maternal depression impairs functioning of the child's immune system and stress response. Such disruptions to the child's stress and immune system, in turn, led to greater child psychopathology. Researchers also found that the …

Congenital TORCH Infection-“Abnormal Infant Development"

Image
Congenital infections are due to pathogens that are transmitted from mother to child during pregnancy or delivery. They can have a substantial negative impact on fetal and neonatal health. TORCH infections can cause spontaneous abortion, premature birth, and intrauterine growth restriction during pregnancy. TORCH infections can cause numerous complex organ abnormalities, including central nervous system (CNS) abnormalities, cardiac defects, vision and hearing loss, as well as skeletal and endocrine abnormalities. Prophylaxis is of great importance during pregnancy. Primary prevention includes vaccination for varicella and rubella (prior to pregnancy), screening for syphilis, and hygiene measures (washing hands, and avoiding certain foods) during pregnancy. Affected children require long-term follow-up to monitor for hearing loss, ophthalmological abnormalities, and developmental delays.
The acronym TORCH stands for the causative pathogens: T - Toxoplasmosis O - Others (including syphi…

MISCARRIAGES TRIGGERED DUE TO UNDETECTED ZIKA VIRUS

Image
In recent study, it absolutely was found that in early stages of gestation, 26% of nonhuman primates get infected with Zika virus and experienced miscarriages orstillbirth though some animals showed few signs of infection. "Many of the fetal and placental tissues had evidence of Zika virus replication and conjointly had pathological lesions that more support the role of Zika virus during this harmful outcome." Previous Zika analysis solely measured miscarriages and stillbirths in ladies United Nations agency displayed signs or symptoms of the virus. A recent study of girls United Nations agency were well-known to be infected with Zika found that 5% failed to carry to term or had stillbirths.
There are limitations to the human studies, which rely on symptomatic infections. Women get enrolled in the studies because they have Zika symptoms, but we know that up to half of people who have Zika don't show any symptoms at all. So, the pregnancy studies are probably missing half o…

Revolution in prenatal care-"Lab on a Chip Technology"

Image
“Life Begins with Prenatal Care”

World-first study led by researchers of University of South Australia on using Lab on a chip i.e., non-invasive technology to detect wide range fetal genetic abnormalities in early pregnancy. Researchers have isolated fetal cells from maternal blood using a tiny microfluidic device, allowing for improved genetic testing. This technology integrates large laboratory functions on a small chip, special design of this device allows large volume of blood to be screened and it is the quick as well as efficient method to separate fetal cell from maternal blood cells.
Currently used methods for prenatal diagnosis carry a risk of inducing miscarriage. With the help of this new technology -From about five weeks into the pregnancy, fetal cells originating from the placenta can be found in a mother's bloodstream. Using modern microfluidic technology, doctors can now isolate these extremely rare cells (about one in a million) from the mother's white blood cel…

Non-dairy drinks are not good (Dangerous) for Infants

Image
Replacing Breast Milk or Infant formula with non-dairy drink can be dangerous for Infants before one year of age. French Pediatricians identified that due to consumption of non-dairy drinks by infants, 34 children were suffered from medical complications between 2005 and 2015. Beverages that are used as alternative were mainly based on almonds, chestnuts, rice and soya. One third of the children had malnutrition, and other clinical issues included height and weight impairment, anemia, hypoalbuminaemia, hyponatremia, hypocalcaemia, seizures, and low vitamin D levels.
