Background: Cord blood lipid estimation in healthy newborns is an opportunity to assess lipid profile parameters at the beginning of life and this might serve as a guide for determining the minimum levels of cholesterol and other lipoprotein required for maintaining normal bodily physiological functions. Various lipid parameters are targeted by interventions in adults in the management of atherosclerotic coronary artery diseases be it for primary prevention or secondary prevention. The… Expand

Profile of cord blood lipids in term newborns in parakou (Benin)
Introduction: Lipid profile abnormalities at birth indicate that initial genetic inheritance is already at risk of developing a cardiovascular disease. Objective: Investigate the profile of umbilicalExpand
Glycemia and Lipidemia in Term Newborns Correlate With Maternal Metabolism
TLDR
The anthropometric patterns found for babies followed the desirable standards, and the average glycemic profile values were between the cutoff standards at birth and at 6 months; however, the triglycerides were above the expected values. Expand
Association of cord blood and maternal lipid profile
According to Barker’s hypothesis, the atherosclerotic lesion may have its origin in the neonatal period generally during the adverse intrauterine period of fetal development, which may result inExpand
Cord lipid profile comparison of newborns of hypertensive mothers
Given the understanding that fetal lipid profile will show deranged results either due to genetic programming or due to prepartum and/or intrapartum stress, and that this deranged lipid profile canExpand
Association between oxidative stress and cord serum lipids in relation to delayed cord clamping in term neonates
TLDR
DCC was associated with a decrease in cord blood lipids and an augmented antioxidant activity and this suggests the protective effect of DCC on the future health of the term neonates and supports the application of D CC in active management of 3rd stage of labor in term Neonates. Expand

Plasma lipid levels and coronary heart disease in adult relatives of newborns with normal and elevated cord blood lipids.
TLDR
It is suggested that measurement of umbilical cord blood cholesterol levels in consecutively studied healthy babies can be used as a population screening test for the diagnosis of one genetic lipid disorder, familial hypercholesterolemia, but these data have been challenged by Darmady et al. Expand
Determination of the Lipid Profile of Cord Blood in Neonates and its Correlation with Maternal Age in Iran
TLDR
In a current study based on increasing maternal age, the HDL-C level in cord blood was decreased which is an independent risk factor for CVDs in adulthood. Expand
Familial history of cardiovascular disease and blood lipid pattern in newborn infants
TLDR
A coronary heart disease (CHD) risk factor family history is sensitive in predicting high cord blood concentrations of LDL‐C, the specificity being 0.46 and the positive predicting value 0.08. Expand
Cord blood lipoproteins and prenatal influences
TLDR
In cord blood, cholesterol levels are lower than in adults and the relative proportion present in HDL as opposed to LDL is much higher, and the currently available evidence suggests that several factors influence the composition of cord blood lipoproteins. Expand
Lipid Profile & Apolipoproteins in Neonates in relation to Birth Weight and Gestational Maturity
TLDR
Findings demonstrate a trend towards worse lipid profile in preterm low birth weight newborns and there is a need to investigate if this atherogenic lipid profile is a marker for future cardiovascular diseases. Expand
Atherogenic lipid profile of Brazilian near-term newborns.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the lipid profile is worse in the group of near-term neonates compared with the term group, and future studies are needed to determine if this atherogenic profile in near- term neonates can affect body metabolism, increasing the risk for cardiovascular diseases in adult life. Expand
Cardiovascular risk factors from birth to 7 years of age: the Bogalusa Heart Study. Serum lipids and lipoproteins.
TLDR
The results suggest that certain persons at increased risk for cardiovascular disease can be identified in infancy, and increases in obesity between 6 months and 7 years of age were positively associated with increases in levels of serum triglycerides. Expand
Maternal Lipids as Strong Determinants of Fetal Environment and Growth in Pregnancies With Gestational Diabetes Mellitus
TLDR
In well-controlled GDM pregnancies, maternal lipids are strong predictors for fetal lipids and fetal growth, while insulin-to-glucose ratio and FFAs were the highest in LGA newborns. Expand
Studies on the Apolipoproteins and Lipoproteins of Cord Serum
TLDR
Investigation of the cord serum lipid transport system found evidence that these apolipoproteins occurred primarily as distinct lipoprotein species with a paucity of association complexes or what others have termed “triglyceride-rich” lipoproteins. Expand
Origin of atherosclerosis in childhood and adolescence.
TLDR
The extent of both fatty streaks and raised lesions (fibrous plaques and other advanced lesions) in the right coronary artery and in the abdominal aorta was associated positively with non-HDL-ch cholesterol concentration, hypertension, impaired glucose tolerance, and obesity and associated negatively with HDL-cholesterol concentration.
