Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,
This Special Issue will focus on an important topic for perinatologists, neonatologists, pediatricians, biologists and engineers. Growth abnormalities (such as growth restriction and large for gestational age) during perinatal and postnatal life are a hot topic issue, since they are often linked to alterations of the uterine environment caused by placental insufficiency, maternal metabolic syndrome, and, in general, under- or overnutrition of the fetus. These fetal abnormalities account for the leading causes of perinatal morbidity and mortality. Moreover, under the hypothesis of the developmental origin of adult diseases, they bear consequences in later life, programming the infant’s physiology for a higher risk of noncommunicable diseases, cardiovascular adult diseases, and neurodevelopment delay.

Assoc. Prof. Erich Cosmi
