General information

Birth defects and developmentally-mediated disorders constitute a major public health concern in the world today. Human development can be affected not only by drugs and chemicals, but also by diet, genetics, maternal health, and socioeconomic factors. Understanding and protecting against potential hazards to developing embryos, fetuses, and children requires advanced scientific knowledge from diverse and novel fields such as cell and molecular biology, developmental biology and toxicology, computational modeling, genetics and epidemiology. The science is put into practice in the areas of prenatal medicine, pediatrics, obstetrics, neonatology, medical genetics, counseling, product safety, risk assessment, and governmental regulations.

Hi Teratology Society, question for your members studying Zika Virus: Is there any evidence to suggest that Zika Virus may have an impact on post-natal development? Thanks!
I am glad to have found your page. I am a member of a group called 'Parents of children with suspected 1080 related conditions", from New Zealand. Our government drops the rodenticide 1080 (sodium fluoroacetate) by helicopter over native bush. My son was conceived 6 months after I videoed a drop from my back garden, at the link below. He has cerebral palsy affecting his legs only, no other manifestation, and nothing visible by MRI. The doctors said there would be an injury at a cellular level. At 11 weeks into the pregnancy I thought I was losing my child. I went by ambulance for 3 hours to a hospital. On the way I prayed to my child asking him/ her to stay. He stayed!! :) :) :) I don't have 'evidence' that his CP was caused by the 1080 drop (via dust blowing towards our house and getting into into our water supply etc), but 1080 is a known teratogen (metabolising to fluorocitrate) and so I would be very grateful if you could possibly consider this situation and comment. Many thousands of New Zealanders want our government to stop dropping 1080 poison like this and if you are in any position to press or leverage a reconsideration at a high level, we would be so grateful. Thank you very much.
