Investigation of prenatal psychosocial predictors of infant birth weight and length of gestation in 120 Hispanic and 110 White pregnant women confirmed that women with stronger resources had higher birth weight babies, whereas those reporting more stress had shorter gestations.

As pregnancy advances, women become decreasingly sensitive to the effects of stress, and this decrease in vulnerability may reflect increasing protection of the mother and fetus from adverse influences during pregnancy.
Etiologic Subtypes of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder: Brain Imaging, Molecular Genetic and Environmental Factors and the Dopamine Hypothesis
Critical issues about etiologic subtypes of ADHD that may involve dopamine are identified, methods that could be used to address these issues are discussed, and old and new theories that may direct research in this area in the future are reviewed.

Examples of the many emergent themes of the DOHaD approach are reviewed, including theoretical advances related to predictive adaptive responses of the fetus to a broad range of environmental cues, empirical observations of effects of overnutrition and stress during pregnancy on outcomes in childhood and adulthood, and potential epigenetic mechanisms that may underlie these observations and theory.
Validation and comparison of luminex multiplex cytokine analysis kits with ELISA: determinations of a panel of nine cytokines in clinical sample culture supernatants.
The contribution of maternal stress to preterm birth: issues and considerations.
Placental corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH), spontaneous preterm birth, and fetal growth restriction: a prospective investigation.
Stress, infection and preterm birth: a biobehavioural perspective.
A comprehensive, biobehavioural model of maternal stress and spontaneous preterm delivery is presented and it is hypothesized that placental corticotropin-releasing hormone may play a key role in orchestrating the effects of endocrine and inflammatory/immune processes on preterm birth.
Maternal Social Support Predicts Birth Weight and Fetal Growth in Human Pregnancy
The findings suggest that prenatal social support is associated with infant birth weight through processes involving fetal growth rather than those involving timing of delivery.
