Common disorders of pregnancy, such as preeclampsia, preterm birth, and fetal growth abnormalities, continue to challenge perinatal biologists seeking insights into disease pathogenesis that will result in better diagnosis, therapy, and disease prevention. These challenges have recently been intensified with discoveries that associate gestational diseases with long-term maternal and neonatal outcomes. Whereas modern high-throughput investigative tools enable scientists and clinicians to non-invasively probe the maternal-fetal genome, epigenome, and other analytes, their implications for clinical medicine remain uncertain...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to investigate the association between abnormal cord insertion and the development of the twin-specific complications, including birthweight discordance, selective fetal growth restriction (sFGR) and twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS). METHODS: A single-center cohort study of twin pregnancies. Abnormal cord insertion was defined as either marginal (cord attachment site less than 2cm to the nearest margin of the placental disc) or velamentous (when the umbilical cord was attached to the membrane before reaching the placental disc with clear evidence of vessels traversing the membranes to connect with the placental disc), as described in placental pathology reports...

BACKGROUND: 22q11.2 deletion syndrome (22q11.2DS) is a very broad phenotypic spectrum disorder. It can affect many organs or systems. 22q11.2DS is the most common microdeletion syndrome in humans, with a prevalence ranging from one in every 2000 to one in 4000 newborns. It seems to be more prevalent than reported and under-recognized or undiagnosed because of its inherent clinical variability and heterogeneity. In France, 15,000 patients may be affected by this disease, more than half without knowing it...

Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS) is a fingerprint disease caused by the loss of paternally inherited chromosome 15q11.2-q13. In several populations studied, prevalence is estimated to be from 1/10,000 to 1/25,000 births. The disease initially manifests by neonatal hypotonia associated with orality disorders. Secondly, hyperphagia appears with significant obesity and hypogonadism. Motor milestones and language development are delayed, and all individuals have variable degrees of cognitive disability during childhood...

INTRODUCTION: Serum gamma glutamyl transferase (GGT), produced and released mostly from the liver and bile duct, is an enzyme involved in response to oxidative stress, and has been used as a maker for prediction of cardiovascular events. Umbilical artery blood flow resistance index, e.g., the systolic/diastolic ratio (S/D ratio) as determined by ultrasound, has been used to assess the fetal intrauterine conditions. While changes of GGT and S/D ratio in preeclampsia are found to be associated with the risk for adverse perinatal outcome, the potential value of combined use of the two measurements for the prediction of adverse perinatal outcome has not been determined...

The authors report a girl born at term via planned cesarean delivery. Three days earlier, an antenatal magnetic resonance imaging study, showing no cerebral lesions in the fetus, was performed. Ten minutes after delivery, signs of progressive respiratory failure developed and the infant was transferred to the intensive care unit. On the next day, a computed tomography (CT) scan showed acute ischemic lesions in the areas of the left middle and posterior cerebral arteries. The exact mechanism of stroke remained unidentified...

REVIEW
G Justus Hofmeyr, Sarah Manyame
BACKGROUND: Pre-eclampsia is considerably more prevalent in low- than high-income countries. One possible explanation for this discrepancy is dietary differences, particularly calcium deficiency. Calcium supplementation in the second half of pregnancy reduces the serious consequences of pre-eclampsia and is recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO) for women with low dietary calcium intake, but has limited effect on the overall risk of pre-eclampsia. It is important to establish whether calcium supplementation before and in early pregnancy has added benefit...
