Ocular teratogens: old acquaintances and new dangers

Skip navigation. Teratogens are substances that may produce physical or functional defects in the human embryo or fetus after the pregnant woman is exposed to the substance. Alcohol and cocaine are examples of such substances. Exposure to the teratogen affects the fetus or embryo in a variety of ways, such as the duration of exposure, the amount of teratogenic substance, and the stage of development the embryo or fetus is in during the exposure. Teratogens may affect the embryo or fetus in a number of ways, causing physical malformations, problems in the behavioral or emotional development of the child, and decreased intellectual quotient IQ in the child. Additionally, teratogens may also affect pregnancies and cause complications such as preterm labors, spontaneous abortions, or miscarriages. Teratogens are classified into four types: physical agents, metabolic conditions, infection, and finally, drugs and chemicals.

Recent research into animal studies has contributed significantly to understanding the pathophysiology of some well-known teratogens, such as alcohol. Techniques, such as positron emission tomography PET and retinal synaptogenesis studies, have helped determine the specific areas in the developing brain and ocular structures, which are targeted by various teratogens. In this article, we also highlight a few newer agents, such as benzodiazepines, with potential for ocular malformation and morbidity in the developing foetus.

Identifying Human Behavioral Teratogens

Good prenatal care is essential. The developing child is most at risk for some of the most severe problems during the first three months of development. Unfortunately, this is a time at which many mothers are unaware that they are pregnant. Today, we know many of the factors that can jeopardize the health of the developing child. The study of factors that contribute to birth defects is called teratology. Teratogens are environmental factors that can contribute to birth defects, and include some maternal diseases, pollutants, drugs and alcohol. Factors influencing prenatal risks: There are several considerations in determining the type and amount of damage that might result from exposure to a particular teratogen Berger,

This page describes harmful substances, called teratogens, which a woman should avoid during pregnancy. These include certain chemicals, medications, social drugs, alcohol, smoking, and infections. Teratogens are substances or other factors that can cause congenital abnormalities, which are also called birth defects. Usually these abnormalities arise in the third to eighth weeks of pregnancy, when the major organ systems are forming. Examples of teratogens include certain chemicals, medications, and infections or other diseases in the mother.

Identifying Human Behavioral Teratogens

A human teratogen is an agent that alters the growth or structure of the developing embryo or fetus, thereby causing birth defects. The first human teratogen identified in by an ophthalmologist, Norman Gregg, was maternal rubella infection in pregnancy, which produced a triad of defects cataracts, heart malformations, and deafness in the infants. Several factors that determine the teratogenicity of an exposure have been set forth as the principles of teratology by Wilson, 3 guiding researchers in the study and understanding of teratogenic agents. These include, but are not limited to, the following: Abnormal development produced by a teratogenic exposure is manifested as death, malformation s , growth retardation, or a functional disorder.

Его туфли кордовской кожи стучали по асфальту, но его обычная реакция теннисиста ему изменила: он чувствовал, что теряет равновесие. Мозг как бы не поспевал за ногами. Беккер в очередной раз послал бармену проклятие за коктейль, выбивший его из колеи. Это был один из старых потрепанных севильских автобусов, и первая передача включилась не. Расстояние между Беккером и ним сокращалось. Нужно было во что бы то ни стало догнать его, пока не включилась следующая передача.

Как он заставит Сьюзан пройти вместе с ним к автомобильной стоянке. Как он поведет машину, если они все же доберутся до. И тут в его памяти зазвучал голос одного из преподавателей Корпуса морской пехоты, подсказавший ему, что делать.

 Мы не успеем! - крикнула Соши.  - На это уйдет полчаса. К тому времени все уже рухнет. Джабба открыл рот, готовый что-то сказать, но тут его буквально парализовал душераздирающий крик.

Мою колонку перепечатывают издания по всему миру. - Сэр! - Беккер поднял обе руки, точно признавая свое поражение.  - Меня не интересует ваша колонка. Я из канадского консульства. Я пришел, чтобы убедиться, что с вами все в порядке.

    Teratogenic agents cause approximately 7% of congenital malformations. A teratogenic agent is a chemical, infectious agent, physical condition, or deficiency that.
