The Sentinel – What’s the Buzz?: Back to school with fetal alcohol syndrome disorders

In 1999, due to a lack of public awareness and available resources, frustrated family members and parents organized a movement to bring awareness to FASD. The ninth minute of the ninth hour of the ninth day of the ninth month of 1999 was chosen as the first official FASD Awareness Day to remind the world that alcohol should not be consumed during the nine months of pregnancy.

Regina Leader-Post (Canada) – Canada FASD Research Network sparks discussion to address significant issues

Community Care (UK) – ‘Don’t rule out foetal alcohol spectrum disorder in young children – it might be expressed later’

Foetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD) is a lifelong, largely invisible disability. It’s caused by prenatal alcohol exposure and is a well-known preventable cause of intellectual and behavioural disorders.

nordan.org – The emerging problem of fetal alcohol

Alcohol related harm is 100% unnecessary and avoidable harm. As such there is no justification for neglecting all possible measures to avoid it. Failing to do so, for both individuals and governments, would be unethical and simply wrong.

RESEARCH

Journal of Advanced Nursing – Peri-conceptual and mid-pregnancy drinking: A cross-sectional assessment in two Scottish health board areas using a 7-day Retrospective Diary

Significant peri-conceptual consumption levels suggest a substantial proportion of alcohol-exposed pregnancies before pregnancy recognition. Not taking a detailed alcohol history, including patterns of consumption, will result in under-detection of alcohol-exposed pregnancies.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27555470

Midwifery – Sympathy, shame, and few solutions: News media portrayals of fetal alcohol spectrum disorders

Practitioners should be aware that conflicting messages about alcohol consumption during pregnancy might lead to shame and confusion, and should encourage openness with mothers to challenge stigma. Guidelines for media reporting should discourage stigmatising frames, and media articles should also consider the role that government, non-government organisations, and the alcohol industry could play for improving FASD shame.

Oxford Handbooks Online – Burden and Social Cost of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders

Developmental Neurobiology – Impact of exercise and a complex environment on hippocampal dendritic morphology, Bdnf gene expression, and DNA methylation in male rat pups neonatally exposed to alcohol

Alcohol exposure in utero can result in Fetal Alcohol Spectrums Disorders (FASD). Measures of hippocampal neuroplasticity, including long-term potentiation, synaptic and dendritic organization, and adult neurogenesis, are consistently disrupted in rodent models of FASD.

Archives of Clinical Neuropsychology – The Effects of Prenatal Alcohol Exposure on Episodic Memory Functioning: A Systematic Review

In general, studies show that PAE results in impaired verbal and visual-spatial episodic memory performance in affected individuals and these impairments are unlikely to be secondary to a global impairment.

Pediatrics – Objective Measures of Prenatal Alcohol Exposure: A Systematic Review

Current evidence is insufficient to support the use of objective measures of prenatal alcohol exposure in practice. Biomarkers in meconium and placenta tissue may be the most promising candidates for further large-scale population-based research.

Alcoholism – Moderate Prenatal Alcohol Exposure Alters Functional Connectivity in the Adult Rat Brain

Past studies of moderate prenatal alcohol exposure (PAE) have focused on specific brain regions, neurotransmitter systems, and behaviors. However, the effects of PAE on brain function and behavior are complex and not limited to discrete brain regions.

BMJ – Alcohol consumption and fecundability: prospective Danish cohort study

Consumption of less than 14 servings of alcohol per week seemed to have no discernible effect on fertility. No appreciable difference in fecundability was observed by level of consumption of beer and wine.
