Over the last several decades, federal agencies engaged in the screening of environmental or pharmaceutical agents have recognized the need to conduct research in animal models to identify agents that have classic teratogenic effects as well as effects on neural and behavioral development. Many...
Exposure to solvents during pregnancy has long been suspected to increase the risk of congenital malformations. Glutathione S‐transferases (GSTs) are enzymes essential for the detoxification of various chemicals. Our objective here was to assess whether GST polymorphisms might modify the...
BACKGROUND Congenital heart defects (CHDs) are the most common type of congenital anomaly, with a wide range of reported birth prevalence estimates. This quality assurance study describes CHD case ascertainment by the Alberta Congenital Anomalies Surveillance System (ACASS). METHODS ACASS data...
BACKGROUND: SUMO1 has been implicated as having a role in the causation of cleft lip with or without cleft palate (CLP), both directly and through association studies in humans and, perhaps more controversially, in transgenic mouse studies. METHODS: To screen for sequence variants that might be...
BACKGROUND Congenital malformations (CMs) are a leading cause of infant disability. Geophysical patterns such as 2‐year, yearly, half‐year, 3‐month, and lunar cycles regulate much of the temporal biology of all life on Earth and may affect birth and birth outcomes in humans. Therefore, the...
INTRODUCTION Hirschsprung's disease is the commonest congenital gut motility disorder, characterized by the absence of the enteric ganglion cells along the distal gut, which causes intestinal obstruction. Few publications report its epidemiology and temporal trends. METHODS Cases of...
BACKGROUND Pelizaeus‐Merzbacher disease (PMD) is a recessive, X‐linked leukoencephalopathy attributed to impaired myelination during central nervous system development, caused by defects in the proteolipid protein 1 (PLP1) gene. PMD presents clinical variability, ranging from the severe...
BACKGROUND Nonsyndromic cleft lip with or without cleft palate (NSCL/P) is a common congenital malformation associated with genetic and environmental risk factors. A recent genome‐wide association study identified two novel susceptibility loci on chromosomes 1p22 and 20q12; however, conflicting...
BACKGROUND Nonsyndromic cleft lip with or without cleft palate is a relatively common craniofacial defect with multifactorial inheritance. The association of the rs987525 single nucleotide variant, located in a gene desert at 8q24.21 region, has been consistently replicated in European...
The objectives of the current study were to calculate: (1) the expected rates of miscarriage by gestational week; (2) the cumulative risk of miscarriage; and (3) the remaining risk of miscarriage for gestational weeks five through 20, through a systematic review of the literature. We searched...
