Maternal Immune Activation and Autism

Maternal Immune Activation Leads to Activated Inflammatory Macrophages in Offspring. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24566386 Several epidemiological studies have shown an association between infection or inflammation during pregnancy and increased risk of autism in the child. In addition, animal models have illustrated that maternal … Continue reading

Maternal Immune Activation and Mtichondrial Function in Autism

Gestational exposure to a viral mimetic poly(i:C) results in long-lasting changes in mitochondrial function by leucocytes in the adult offspring. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24174710 Abstract Maternal immune activation (MIA) is a potential risk factor for autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and schizophrenia (SZ). In … Continue reading

Immune Activation – Mania – Inflammation

A combined marker of inflammation in individuals with mania. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24019926 Abstract BACKGROUND: Markers of immune activation have been associated with mania but have not been examined in combination. We studied the association between mania and an inflammation score based on … Continue reading

Interleukin-6 and Interleukin-1β – Maternal Immune Activation / Epilepsy

Maternal immune activation promotes hippocampal kindling epileptogenesis in mice. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23907982 OBJECTIVE: Maternal immune activation (MIA) triggered by infections, has been identified as a cause of autism in the offspring. Considering the involvement of perturbations in innate immunity in epilepsy, we … Continue reading

Mother and Child – Autism – Immune Activation

Maternal immune activation causes age- and region-specific changes in brain cytokines in offspring throughout development. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22841693 Maternal infection is a risk factor for autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and schizophrenia (SZ). Indeed, modeling this risk factor in mice through maternal immune … Continue reading

Maternal Immune Activation and Autism

Effects of maternal immune activation on gene expression patterns in the fetal brain. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22832908 We are exploring the mechanisms underlying how maternal infection increases the risk for schizophrenia and autism in the offspring. Several mouse models of maternal immune activation … Continue reading
