Prenatal exposure to endocrine disruptors and behavioral problems in children

An epidemiological study carried out by Inserm on families from the EDEN cohort (500 boys born between 2003 and 2006 and their mothers) shows that exposure during pregnancy to certain phenols and phthalates is associated with behavioral problems in boys between 3 and 5 years of age. The most worrying compounds in this respect are bisphenol A, triclosan and dibutyl phthalate (DBP).

How do arteries protect themselves from atherosclerosis?

Associated with an aging population and the development of metabolic syndrome, atherosclerosis is a leading cause of death worldwide. Researchers from Inserm Unit 970, the “Paris Cardiovascular Research Center” (Inserm/Université Paris Descartes), have succeeded in revealing the mechanisms underlying the formation of atherosclerotic plaques. In particular, they have discovered the protective role of autophagy, a mechanism for cleaning and recycling cell components, in the cells that line the inner artery wall. These results, published in PNAS on September 25, 2017, provide us with an improved understanding of the initial stages of plaque development, and open up the possibility of developing a preventive treatment.

The Yin and Yang of Low-dose Irradiation on Hematopoiesis

A team of researchers from CEA, Inserm, and the Paris-Sud and Paris Diderot universities has shown that exposure to low doses of irradiation (0.02 Gy) leads of a loss of hematopoietic stem cell[1] (HSC) function. The team has also shown that irradiation at this low dose facilitates efficient bone marrow transplantation without myeloablation[2]. These results, published in Cell Reports on September 26, 2017, show both the positive and negative aspects of low doses of irradiation.

Maternal mortality: deaths from hemorrhage reduced but inequalities remain

Between 2010 and 2012, 256 women died in France from causes linked to pregnancy, labor, or following childbirth, amounting to 85 such cases a year. Although inequalities remain, improvements have been observed in the provision of labor care, with the death rate from hemorrhage halving. These epidemiological results have been made public by the triennial report of the Confidential Inquiry into Maternal Deaths (Enquête Confidentielle sur les Morts Maternelles, ENCMM) in regard to the period 2010-2012, which was led by Inserm’s EPOPé – “Obstetrical, Perinatal, and Pediatric Epidemiology Team” – at the Center of Research in Epidemiology and Statistics Sorbonne Paris Cité (CRESS, Unit 1153).
