Untargeted analysis of plasma samples from pre-eclamptic women reveals polar and apolar changes in the metabolome (2019)
Journal Article

Introduction Pre-eclampsia is a hypertensive gestational disorder that affects approximately 5% of all pregnancies. Objectives As the pathophysiological processes of pre-eclampsia are still uncertain, the present case–control study explored unde...

Expression of cholesterol packaging and transport genes in human and rat placenta: impact of obesity and a high-fat diet (2019)
Journal Article

Evidence suggests that sub-optimal maternal nutrition has implications for the developing offspring. We have previously shown that exposure to a low-protein diet during gestation was associated with upregulation of genes associated with cholesterol t...

Maternal obesity-induced decreases in plasma, hepatic and uterine polyunsaturated fatty acids during labour is reversed through improved nutrition at conception (2018)
Journal Article

Maternal obesity is associated with prolonged and dysfunctional labour, potentially through decreased synthesis of prostaglandins that stimulate myometrial contractions. We assessed the impact of maternal obesity on concentrations of precursor fatty...

Thecal cell sensitivity to luteinizing hormone and insulin in polycystic ovarian syndrome (2016)
Journal Article
Cadagan, D., Khan, R., & Amer, S. A. (2016). Thecal cell sensitivity to luteinizing hormone and insulin in polycystic ovarian syndrome. Reproductive Biology -Olsztyn-, 16(1), https://doi.org/10.1016/j.repbio.2015.12.006

This study examined whether a defect of steroid synthesis in ovarian theca cells may lead to the development of PCOS, through contributions to excess androgen secretion. Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) is one of the leading causes of infertilit... Read More about Thecal cell sensitivity to luteinizing hormone and insulin in polycystic ovarian syndrome.
