• Corticosteroid use and risk of orofacial clefts 

      Skuladottir, Hildur; Wilcox, Allen James; Ma, Chen; Lammer, Edward J.; Rasmussen, Sonja A.; Werler, Martha M.; Shaw, Gary M.; Carmichael, Suzan L. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2014-06)
      Background: Maternal use of corticosteroids during early pregnancy has been inconsistently associated with orofacial clefts in the offspring. A previous report from the National Birth Defect Prevention Study (NBDPS), using ...

    • Identification of DNA methylation changes in newborns related to maternal smoking during pregnancy 

      Markunas, Christina A; Xu, Zongli; Harlid, Sophia; Wade, Paul A.; Lie, Rolv Terje; Taylor, Jack A.; Wilcox, Allen James (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2014-10-01)
      Background: Maternal smoking during pregnancy is associated with significant infant morbidity and mortality, and may influence later disease risk. One mechanism by which smoking (and other environmental factors) might have ...

    • Maternal genes and facial clefts in offspring: a comprehensive search for genetic associations in two population-based cleft studies from Scandinavia 

      Jugessur, Astanand; Shi, Min; Gjessing, Håkon K.; Lie, Rolv Terje; Wilcox, Allen James; Weinberg, Clarice Ring; Christensen, Kaare; Boyles, Abee Lowman; Daack-Hirsch, Sandra; Nguyen, Truc Trung; Christiansen, Lene; Lidral, Andrew Carl; Murray, Jeffrey Clark (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2010-07-09)
      Background Fetal conditions can in principle be affected by the mother's genotype working through the prenatal environment. Methodology/Principal Findings Genotypes for 1536 SNPs in 357 cleft candidate genes were available ...
    • Seasonal and pandemic influenza during pregnancy and risk of fetal death: A Norwegian registry‑based cohort study 

      Gunnes, Nina; Gjessing, Håkon K.; Bakken, Inger Johanne Landsjøåsen; Ghaderi, Sara; Gran, Jon Michael; Hungnes, Olav; Magnus, Per; Samuelsen, Sven Ove; Skrondal, Anders; Stoltenberg, Camilla; Trogstad, Lill; Wilcox, Allen James; Håberg, Siri Eldevik (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Previous studies of fetal death with maternal influenza have been inconsistent. We explored the effect of maternal influenza-like illness (ILI) in pregnancy on the risk of fetal death, distinguishing between diagnoses ...
    • X-Linked Genes and Risk of Orofacial Clefts: Evidence from Two Population-Based Studies in Scandinavia 

      Jugessur, Astanand; Skare, Øivind; Lie, Rolv Terje; Wilcox, Allen James; Christensen, Kaare; Christiansen, Lene; Nguyen, Truc Trung; Murray, Jeffrey Clark; Gjessing, Håkon K. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2012-06-19)
      Background: Orofacial clefts are common birth defects of complex etiology, with an excess of males among babies with cleft lip and palate, and an excess of females among those with cleft palate only. Although genes on the ...
