Abstract Alterations induced by prenatal exposure to nicotine have been observed in experimental (rodent) studies. While numerous developmental outcomes have been associated with prenatal exposure to maternal cigarette smoking (PEMCS) in humans, the possible relation with brain structure is less clear. Here we sought to elucidate the relation between PEMCS and structural properties of human corpus callosum in adolescence and early adulthood in a total of 1,747 youth. We deployed three community-...

Visceral adiposity has been associated with altered microstructural properties of white matter in adolescents. Previous evidence suggests that circulating phospholipid PC(16:0/2:0) may mediate this association. To investigate the underlying biology, we performed a genome-wide association study (GWAS) of the shared variance of visceral fat, PC(16:0/2:0), and white matter microstructure in 872 adolescents from the Saguenay Youth Study. We further studied the metabolomic profile of the GWAS-lead va...

High blood pressure (BP) is the strongest modifiable risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Overweight/obesity is a major risk factor of high BP. Multiple sex differences exist in mechanistic path...

Life-long maintenance of brain health is important for the prevention of cognitive impairment in older age. Low-grade peripheral inflammation associated with excess visceral fat (VF) may influence brain structure and function. Here we examined (i) if this type of inflammation is associated with altered white-matter (WM) microstructure and lower cognitive functioning in adolescents, and (ii) if recently identified circulating glycerophosphocholines (GPCs) can index this type of inflammation and a...

Purpose of review Myotonic dystrophy type 1 (DM1) is a severe, progressive genetic disease that affects between 1 in 3,000 and 8,000 individuals globally. No evidence-based guideline exists to inform the care of these patients, and most do not have access to multidisciplinary care centers staffed by experienced professionals, creating a clinical care deficit. Recent findings The Myotonic Dystrophy Foundation (MDF) recruited 66 international clinicians experienced in DM1 patient care to develop c...
