In the presence of maternal asthma, we have previously reported reduced placental blood flow, decreased cortisol metabolism, and reductions in fetal growth in response to maternal asthma and asthma exacerbations. We have proposed that these changes in placental function and fetal development may be related to activation of proinflammatory pathways in the placenta in response to maternal asthma. In the present study, we examined the influence of maternal asthma severity, inhaled glucocorticoid… CONTINUE READING
