    S H Alwasel
    Fetal Programming of Disease Research Chair, Zoology Department, College of Science, King Saud University, Saudi Arabia
    Am J Hum Biol 23:651-4. 2011
    ..In Europe, boys and girls have different body proportions at birth. We examined newborn babies in Saudi Arabia to determine the sex differences and whether fetal growth differed if the mother was in utero during Ramadan...

    Placenta 33:619-22. 2012
    ..Mothers who are short in stature are known to have lower rates of protein turnover in pregnancy. In these circumstances the ability of the placenta to transfer amino acids to the fetus may be critical...
