  • Selective Exposure of the Fetal Lung and Skin/Amnion (but Not Gastro-Intestinal Tract) to LPS Elicits Acute Systemic Inflammation in Fetal Sheep Kemp, Matthew W.; Kannan, Paranthaman Senthamarai; Saito, Masatoshi; Newnham, John P.; Cox, Tom; Jobe, Alan H.; Kramer, Boris W.; Kallapur, Suhas G. // PLoS ONE;May2013, Vol. 8 Issue 5, p1 

    Inflammation of the uterine environment (commonly as a result of microbial colonisation of the fetal membranes, amniotic fluid and fetus) is strongly associated with preterm labour and birth. Both preterm birth and fetal inflammation are independently associated with elevated risks of subsequent...

    Objective: Spontaneous preterm birth (PTB) and preterm prelabor rupture of membranes (pPROM) are major pregnancy complications often associated with a fetal inflammatory response. Biomolecular markers of this fetal inflammatory response to both infectious and non-infectious risk factors and...

  • Fetal Inflammatory Response and Brain Injury in the Preterm Newborn. Malaeb, Shadi; Dammann, Olaf // Journal of Child Neurology;Sep2009, Vol. 24 Issue 9, p1119 

    Preterm birth can be caused by intrauterine infection and maternal/fetal inflammatory responses. Maternal inflammation (chorioamnionitis) is often followed by a systemic fetal inflammatory response characterized by elevated levels of proinflammatory cytokines in the fetal circulation. The...

  • Histological Chorioamnionitis Is Increased at Extremes of Gestation in Stillbirth: A Population-Based Study. Gordon, Adrienne; Lahra, Monica; Raynes-Greenow, Camille; Jeffery, Heather // Infectious Diseases in Obstetrics & Gynecology;2011, Vol. 2011, Special section p1 

    Objective. To determine the incidence of histological chorioamnionitis and a fetal response in stillbirths in New South Wales (NSW), and to examine any relationship of fetal response to spontaneous onset of labour and to unexplained antepartum death. Study Design. Population-based cohort study....

  • Obesity and Lifespan Health--Importance of the Fetal Environment. Tarantal, Alice F.; Berglund, Lars // Nutrients;Apr2014, Vol. 6 Issue 4, p1725 

    A marked increase in the frequency of obesity at the population level has resulted in an increasing number of obese women entering pregnancy. The increasing realization of the importance of the fetal environment in relation to chronic disease across the lifespan has focused attention on the role...

  • Bacteria may be at fault in certain preterm births.  // Infectious Diseases in Children;Apr2011, Vol. 24 Issue 4, p39 

    The article focuses on a study which showed the possible contribution of the fetal inflammatory response to bacteria that colonize the placenta in pregnant women to the onset of preterm labor, fetal injury and complications.

  • Effect of Silibinin in Reducing Inflammatory Pathways in In Vitro and In Vivo Models of Infection-Induced Preterm Birth. Lim, Ratana; Morwood, Carrington J.; Barker, Gillian; Lappas, Martha // PLoS ONE;Mar2014, Vol. 9 Issue 3, p1 

    Infection-induced preterm birth is the largest cause of infant death and of neurological disabilities in survivors. Silibinin, from milk thistle, exerts potent anti-inflammatory activities in non-gestational tissues. The aims of this study were to determine the effect of silibinin on...

  • Ex-Vivo Uterine Environment (EVE) Therapy Induced Limited Fetal Inflammation in a Premature Lamb Model. Miura, Yuichiro; Saito, Masatoshi; Usuda, Haruo; Woodward, Eleanor; Rittenschober-Böhm, Judith; Kannan, Paranthaman S.; Musk, Gabrielle C.; Matsuda, Tadashi; Newnham, John P.; Kemp, Matthew W. // PLoS ONE;10/16/2015, Vol. 10 Issue 10, p1 

    Introduction: Ex-vivo uterine environment (EVE) therapy uses an artificial placenta to provide gas exchange and nutrient delivery to a fetus submerged in an amniotic fluid bath. Development of EVE may allow us to treat very premature neonates without mechanical ventilation. Meanwhile,...

  • Prenatal Exposure to Phthalates and Intrauterine Inflammation: A Unifying Hypothesis. Latini, Giuseppe; Massaro, Marika; De Felice, Claudio // Toxicological Sciences;May2005, Vol. 85 Issue 1, p743 

    The article discusses the paper by Xu et al. that shows the relation of phthalates to abnormal fetal development. It mentions that exposure to di-2-ethylhexyl phthalate induces or potentiates an intrauterine inflammatory response. However, it also notes that maternal supplementation of...

  • Oral, Nasal and Pharyngeal Exposure to Lipopolysaccharide Causes a Fetal Inflammatory Response in Sheep. Maneenil, Gunlawadee; Kemp, Matthew W.; Kannan, Paranthaman Senthamarai; Kramer, Boris W.; Saito, Masatoshi; Newnham, John P.; Jobe, Alan H.; Kallapur, Suhas G. // PLoS ONE;Mar2015, Vol. 10 Issue 3, p1 

    Background: A fetal inflammatory response (FIR) in sheep can be induced by intraamniotic or selective exposure of the fetal lung or gut to lipopolysaccharide (LPS). The oral, nasal, and pharyngeal cavities (ONP) contain lymphoid tissue and epithelium that are in contact with the amniotic fluid....
