Maternal alcohol use during pregnancy is associated with a wide range of adverse outcomes for the child. Many women who drink during pregnancy also have male partners who abuse alcohol. Existing data on paternal effects of alcohol abuse during the preconceptual period and at the time of conception are reviewed. Epidemiological data offer some support for a paternal influence on birth weight, congenital heart defects, and some evidence of mild cognitive impairments. Animal data have demonstrated… Expand
Maternal and partner prenatal alcohol use and infant cognitive development.
TLDR
This finding corroborates existing evidence to suggest there are no detrimental effects to infant cognitive development at 12-months of age following low-level prenatal alcohol exposure and helps clarify interaction between alcohol Exposure and environmental factors on developmental outcomes. Expand
Fetal alcohol-spectrum disorders: identifying at-risk mothers
TLDR
The combination of self-report and biomarker screening may help identify a greater proportion of women at risk for having a child with FASD, allowing them to access information and treatment, and empowering them to make decisions that benefit their children. Expand
FATHER INVOLVEMENT AND FETAL ALCOHOL SPECTRUM DISORDER: DEVELOPING BEST PRACTICES
TLDR
The fundamentally important, but frequently minimized, and ignored role of fathers and their role in either contributing to or protecting against maternal alcohol consumption are reviewed. Expand
Pre-conception and prenatal alcohol exposure from mothers and fathers drinking and head circumference: results from the Norwegian Mother-Child Study (MoBa)
Although microcephaly is a feature of Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, it is currently unknown whether low-to-moderate prenatal alcohol exposure affects head circumference. Small magnitude associationsExpand
The Effects of Prenatal Alcohol Exposure on Cognitive Functioning
Alcohol can have numerous disadvantageous effects on the fetus. These effects together form a spectrum named fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD) and contain structural anomalies andExpand
Fetal alcohol spectrum disorders and their transmission through genetic and epigenetic mechanisms
TLDR
Current literature on the topic is reviewed to tease apart what is known in these areas particularly emphasizing HPA axis dysfunction and how this ties into new studies of transgenerational inheritance in FASD. Expand
Birth Outcomes, Lifetime Alcohol Dependence and Cognition in Middle Adulthood.
TLDR
Evaluating the possible role of fetal alcohol exposure within studies on alcoholism can only further improve the treatment and prevention of alcohol-related problems by isolating those cognitive outcomes uniquely attributable to an individual's consumption of alcohol. Expand
Substance‐Using Mothers: Bias in Culture and Research
TLDR
A literature review about research and attitudes concerning substance‐using mothers and birth defects, developed with Omnimedicalsearch.com (using the Medpro option). Expand
NGF and BDNF Alterations by Prenatal Alcohol Exposure
TLDR
A possible therapeutic intervention based on the use of specific molecules with antioxidant properties in order to induce a potential prevention of the harmful effects of the paternal and/or maternal alcohol exposure is suggested. Expand
Alcohol Use during Pregnancy: Considerations for Australian Policy
  • N. McBride
  • Medicine
  • Social work in public health
  • 2014
TLDR
Policy considerations include the social context and determinates of alcohol consumption during pregnancy and the need to consider the issue as one that goes beyond the decision making of individual women, and the possibility of the prevention paradox applying to this field. Expand

Influence of paternal age, smoking, and alcohol consumption on congenital anomalies.
TLDR
Data generally do not indicate strong or widespread associations between paternal attributes and birth defects, however, because of this study's imprecision, limited ability to isolate defects most likely to be of paternal origin, and the identification of several suggestive associations with age and smoking, further study of this issue would be of value.

Fetal alcohol syndrome in adolescents and adults.
TLDR
After puberty, the faces of patients with fetal alcohol syndrome or fetal alcohol effects were not as distinctive, and patients tended to remain short and microcephalic, although their weight was somewhat closer to the mean. Expand
Acute alcohol exposure markedly influences male fertility and fetal outcome in the male rat.
TLDR
The results showed that a relatively large dose of alcohol 24 hours prior to breeding had little effect on the mating behavior of male rats, but there were markedly fewer pregnancies in females mated with alcohol-exposed male rats than in controls. Expand
Tetratological evaluation of mouse fetuses after paternal alcohol ingestion.
TLDR
The results suggest that although some changes may be seen in progeny sired by alcohol treated males, the specific anomalies associated with the Fetal Alcohol Syndrome are most probably not due to paternal alcoholism. Expand
Father's drinking and infant birth weight: report of an association.
TLDR
This is the first report of an association in humans between father's drinking prior to conception and decreased infant birth weight, independent of maternal drinking. Expand

The effect of paternal alcohol consumption on fetal development in mice.
TLDR
The results suggest that paternal alcohol consumption does not grossly alter fetal growth and development in C3H mice. Expand
Maternal and paternal alcohol consumption increase offspring susceptibility to Pseudomonas aeruginosa ocular infection.
TLDR
Prospects of parents receiving 0% or lower-dose alcohol treatment had less severe corneal pathology than progeny of parents with higher alcohol doses, and Histopathology confirmed the above data. Expand

Twin and adoption studies consistently implicate the importance of genetic influences on alcoholism risk, especially in men. Heritability estimates suggest that approximately 50% to 60% of theExpand
Paternal alcohol exposure and hyperactivity in rat offspring: effects of amphetamine.

TLDR
The presence of a differential effect of amphetamine suggests that the paternal effect on activity may be mediated by catecholaminergic activity, and the absence of significant differences between ad lib and 0 g/kg pair-fed controls indicates that paternal stress/undernutrition does not significantly affect offspring activity.
