Fetal Alcohol Syndrome
A multi-site, cross-sectional study found a large mismatch between previously diagnosed fetal alcohol spectrum disorders and the actual prevalence of cases identified.
The global prevalence of fetal alcohol spectrum disorder is about 7.7 per 1000.
Animal research may have helped to find a treatment for fetal alcohol spectrum disorder in children.
The new guidelines include a step-by-step diagnostic algorithm for use in the clinical setting, as well as a special emphasis on neurobehavioral impairment.
Slow-wave sleep fragmentation significantly correlated with neurobehavioral outcomes in a mouse model.
The study focused on a gestational period when women don't often realize that they are pregnant.
