Researching Pregnancy outcome

Institute researchers are evaluating exposure to phthalates in pregnant women, despite the potential sensitivity of the developing fetus to adverse effects of phthalates. There has been little research into the prevalence of birth defects in these children and our researchers have the following objectives:

  • Examine effects of prenatal phthalate exposures on modulation of gene expression in placental tissue.

  • Characterize phthalate exposures during pregnancy among Palestinian women (n=280).

  • Examine effects of prenatal phthalate exposure on gestational age and fetal growth.
