Blood pressure of young mothers and their children after hypertension in adolescent pregnancy: six- to nine-year follow-up

American Journal of Epidemiology

To determine if gestational hypertension during adolescent pregnancy is associated with subsequently elevated blood pressure, blood pressures were measured in young mothers 3-6 years and again at 6-9 years after their first pregnancy. Follow-up study groups were selected from an original study population of 409 pregnant adolescent women followed at the university of Kentucky Medical Center between 1971 and 1974 in a specially designated Young Mothers' Program. Blood pressures measured during the first and second follow-up surveys were highly correlated. Compared to matched control subjects who remained normotensive throughout pregnancy (n = 54), women with a history of hypertension during pregnancy (n = 70) were heavier, maintained higher blood pressure, and had a greater incidence of hypertension in subsequent pregnancies. At the second follow-up survey, systolic blood pressure and body weight of male children born to women who experienced gestational hypertension were greater than respective values in males born to women with normotensive pregnancies. Blood pressures of female children of the two groups of young mothers did not differ. Overall, blood pressures and body weights of young mothers correlated with blood pressures ...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Lipidomics & Rhinovirus Infection

Lipidomics can be used to examine the lipid species involved with pathogenic conditions, such as viral associated inflammation. Discovered the latest research on Lipidomics & Rhinovirus Infection.

Spatio-Temporal Regulation of DNA Repair

DNA repair is a complex process regulated by several different classes of enzymes, including ligases, endonucleases, and polymerases. This feed focuses on the spatial and temporal regulation that accompanies DNA damage signaling and repair enzymes and processes.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Torsion Dystonia

Torsion dystonia is a movement disorder characterized by loss of control of voluntary movements appearing as sustained muscle contractions and/or abnormal postures. Here is the latest research.

Archaeal RNA Polymerase

Archaeal RNA polymerases are most similar to eukaryotic RNA polymerase II but require the support of only two archaeal general transcription factors, TBP (TATA-box binding protein) and TFB (archaeal homologue of the eukaryotic general transcription factor TFIIB) to initiate basal transcription. Here is the latest research on archaeal RNA polymerases.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within the membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease in genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research on Alzheimer's disease and MS4A.

Central Pontine Myelinolysis

Central Pontine Myelinolysis is a neurologic disorder caused most frequently by rapid correction of hyponatremia and is characterized by demyelination that affects the central portion of the base of the pons. Here is the latest research on this disease.
