Intrauterine growth restriction and gestational diabetes are two of the most common pathologic entities encountered during the antenatal period and account for approximately 10-15% of pregnancies. Gestational diabetes is a significant risk factor that predisposes patients to intrauterine fetal growth restriction through a variety of pathophysiological processes, examples of which include epigenetic alterations, impaired cholesterol metabolism, placental vasculopathy, etc. Significant advances have been achieved in the last decade; however, research is still needed to elucidate the pathophysiology of both pregnancy complications in order to help achieve optimal maternal and neonatal antenatal outcomes.
In the present issue, we hope that leading experts will share their perspectives on the pathophysiology of gestational diabetes and intrauterine growth restriction and that they will contribute to current knowledge with novel evidence that provides the foundation for further research.
We seek contributions in the form of original research articles, reviews, or shorter perspective articles on all aspects related to the subject. Topics may include but are not limited to epigenetic and genetic modifications, altered protein profiles, ultrasonographic markers, and environmental factors that predispose patients to the occurrence of gestational diabetes and/or intrauterine growth restriction.
