Both maternal administrations of dioxin (2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin) during gestation and lactation periods may impair the development of cerebellum of their offspring via thyroid hormones and this may, in general, delay the growth and differentiation of the neuroendocrine system.
● Dioxin may act as endocrine- and neural-disrupting actions on the development of THs-cerebellum axis.
●The long-term effects of diabetes during the pregnancy (gestational diabetes) may influence, generally, on the health of the embryos, newborns (perinatal life) and adulthood.
● Sperm, egg, zygote or blastocyst derived from diabetic parents may develop into offspring with high risk of any type of diabetes, even if placed in a normal uterus, producing developmental delay, embryopathy, geno-and cyto-toxicity, teratogenic changes, free radicals and apoptosis.
