Human brain mapping – Examining the effects of prenatal alcohol exposure on performance of the sustained attention to response task in children with an FASD. These findings show that children 8-12 years old with an FASD diagnosis have decreased amplitudes in BA44 during SART random order, and that these deficits are associated with multiple behavioral measures.

Developmental Medicine and Child Neurology – Lived experience of fetal alcohol spectrum disorder: A qualitative scoping review
FASD affects individuals, caregivers, and families on a daily basis; and they require improved support and funding.

Preprints.org – Alcohol Consumption Assessed by a Biomarker and Self-Reported Drinking in a Sample of Pregnant Women in the South of Europe: A Comparative Study. The prevalence of self-reported alcohol consumption (questionnaire) was 20.7% and real consumption (metabolite analysis) was 20.2%. In 16.8% of pregnant women who declared not consuming alcohol during their pregnancy a noticeable consumption was detected according to the metabolite testing.

bioRxiv – Monitoring lasting changes to brain tissue integrity through mechanical properties following adolescent exercise intervention in a rat model of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders
This is the first application of MRE to measure changes in brain mechanical properties in a rodent model of FASD. MRE successfully captured alcohol-related changes to forebrain stiffness and damping ratio in adolescence.

Alcohol: Clinical and Experimental Research – Exploring resource implications and models of care for assessment and diagnosis of fetal alcohol spectrum disorder: A scoping review
This study provides important preliminary insights into the resource implications and models of care involved in the diagnostic assessment of FASD.

Canadian Graduate Journal of Sociology and Criminology – ‘Now what?’: An examination of ongoing gaps post-diagnosis for justice-involved youth with FASD
We aim to highlight areas for further consideration when working with justice-involved youth with FASD, namely, gaps in early assessment and implementation of supports, needs to increase parent and caregiver capacity to maintain residential stability, and efforts to support desistance from crime in the context of an FASD diagnosis.

Journal of Clinical Medicine – Significance of Selected Environmental and Biological Factors on the Risk of FASD in Women Who Drink Alcohol during Pregnancy
Prenatal alcohol exposure (PAE), which refers to alcohol consumption by pregnant women, is associated with the risk of numerous severe complications during fetal development.

Nutrients – Alterations in Placental Inflammation-Related Gene Expression Partially Mediate the Effects of Prenatal Alcohol Consumption on Maternal Iron Homeostasis
These findings suggest that placental inflammation may be partly responsible for the differences in alcohol-related iron homeostasis patterns between pregnant and non-pregnant adults.

Alcohol: Clinical and Experimental Research – Maternal and paternal risk factors for fetal alcohol spectrum disorders: Alcohol and other drug use as proximal influences
Differences in FASD risk emerged from the examination of multiple proximal variables of maternal alcohol and tobacco use, reflecting increased FASD risk at greater levels of maternal alcohol consumption.

Cells – Neuroimmune Interactions in Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders: Potential Therapeutic Targets and Intervention Strategies
This review emphasizes the role of EVs in the context of neuron–glia interactions during prenatal alcohol exposure. Finally, some potential applications involving nutritional, pharmacological, cell-based, and exosome-based therapies in the treatment of FASD are discussed.

FASD Cerebellum Review – Recent Breakthroughs in Understanding the Cerebellum’s Role in Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder: A Systematic Review.Exposure to alcohol during fetal development can lead to structural and functional abnormalities in the cerebellum, a brain region responsible for motor coordination, balance, and specific cognitive functions. In this systematic review, we comprehensively analyze a vast body of research conducted on vertebrate animals and humans over the past 13 years.

Frontiers in Neuroendocrinology – The interaction of genetic sex and prenatal alcohol exposure on health across the lifespan
Understanding how sex and PAE interact to affect offspring health outcomes across the lifespan is critical for identifying the full complement of PAE-associated secondary conditions, and for refining targeted interventions to improve the quality of life for individuals with PAE.

Nordic Studies on Alcohol and Drugs – Cumulative risk factors for injuries and poisoning requiring hospital care in youth with prenatal substance exposure: A longitudinal controlled cohort study
Hospital care for injury and poisoning is more common in youth with PSE, but this is largely explained by the related postnatal child and maternal factors.

Alcohol consumption during pregnancy can harm not only the mother’s health but can also cause several health problems for the newborn, therefore health education and prevention actions are essential. https://www.periodicojs.com.br/index.php/hs/article/view/1615

Europe PMC – Interconnections between unintended pregnancy, alcohol and other drug use, and pregnancy, birth, infant, childhood, and socio-economic outcomes: a scoping review. Unintended pregnancy (UIP) and substance use disorder (SUD) share underlying root causes with similar potential impacts for women and their offspring in pregnancy, birth and beyond.

Alcohol Clinical and Experimental Research – Factors to be considered as part of a holistic assessment for fetal alcohol spectrum disorder: A scoping review. We undertook a scoping review to identify the factors outside of current fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD) diagnostic criteria to be considered as part of a holistic assessment process.
