YearTitle / Rationale
20051st International Summit on Preterm Birth
Organisation: Society for Gynaecological Investigation Description: Roger was invited to give a Plenary lecture "Stress and the onset of human labour" in the session called "Preterm labour - mechanisms". This was the first in a series of landmark meetings focussed on topics vital to global reproductive health. This Summit addressed the important research questions relating to the prediction and prevention of preterm birth. The goal of the Summit was to produce an expert consensus document defining the current state of knowledge and important questions to be addressed in future research. Roger was also invited to be on the Scientific Committee of the Summit. This report and supporting documents were published in the Journal of the Society of Gynecological Reproduction.
20042nd International workshop on Biomarkers and PTD
Organisation: World Health Organisation Description: Roger was one of two Australian participants. The goals for this workshop were to generate a forum for international projects, future collaborations scientific progress based on fruitful discussions, exchange of ideas and potentially friendship. The final product was to be scientific protocols owned by all participants. 5 protocols on genetics, preconception identification of women at risk for PTB, Pathways, Time trends and preventions and interventions were generated. The International PREterm BIrth Collaborative (PREBIC) was formed at this meeting.
200346th RCOG Study Group
Organisation: Royal College of Obstetrics and Gynecology Description: Invited to participate in the 46th Royal College Obstetrics & Gynecology Study Group on preterm labour convened in London 21-23 Oct 2003 A small number of selected people were chosen to meet for three days to discuss preterm labour. The college attaches great importance to the Study groups both nationally and internationally through the resulting publication. Roger's talk was titled Control of the length of gestation lessons from women". This led to the following publication. Smith R, Mesiano S, Nicholson R, Zakar T, Chan E-C, Bisits A, Clifton V, Giles W. Control of the Length of Gestation-Lessons from Women. Pre-term Birth Study Group. Eds. Bennet and Thornton. Publisher: Royal College Obstetrics Gynecology 2004.
200324th Winter Neuropeptide Conference, Breckenridge, Colorado 1st-4th Feb
Organisation: National Institute of Health Description: Roger was invited by Dr Cathy Spong, Head of the NIH Perinatal Study Section, to Chair the session "Neuropeptides and Development".
2002Placenta and Brain, Birth and Behavior, Health and Disease, Washington, 10th June
Organisation: American College of Obstetricians & Gynecologists Description: Roger was invited to give the opening presentation "Regulation of Human Parturition". This symposium established collaborations which led to Roger Smith and Rick Nicholson being co-chief investigators on a major NIH program grant. The following publication resulted from this symposium:- Smith R, Mesiano S, Nicholson R, Clifton V, Zakar T, Chan E-C, Bisits A, Giles W. The Regulation of Human Parturition. In Birth Distress and Disease. Eds. Michael Power, Jay Schulkin. Publisher: Cambridge University Press, Cambridge UK pp77-90 2006

Preterm birth accounts for 70% of neonatal mortality and is a common cause for intellectual handicap among survivors. Approximately 50% of cases of cerebral palsy are associated with preterm birth, in turn preterm birth increases the risk of cerebral palsy by 40 times! (Goldenberg, 2002). Preterm labor thus afflicts individuals at the very beginning of their lives, depriving them of opportunities and increasing health and educational costs for families and society in general. Unfortunately the rates of preterm birth have not changed for over 30 years due to an inability to predict the event and lack of effective therapies. This clinical problem has driven research into the mechanisms that regulate the timing of human birth and the disorders which cause preterm birth. For reasons of ethics most research in the past has focused on animal work, especially in the sheep. Unfortunately studies have revealed substantial differences between parturition in humans and that in other animals. Thus animal studies provide us with clues as to how systems operate to regulate delivery in mammals but frustrate us with uncertainty as to whether particular mechanisms operate in the human. Experimental in vivo studies provide the strongest evidence for cause and effect, yet the closer we come to the human state in our near relatives the apes, the larger the ethical constraints on experimental studies become.

Background Successful parenting requires maternal behaviors that promote infant survival such as protection from predators. In animal studies, oxytocin (OT) has been linked to maternal aggression to protect offspring. No human study has explored this topic. Mothers with a diagnosis of postnatal depression (PND) are at higher risk of neglecting their infants. We hypothesized that intranasal OT administration would increase the protective behaviors of mothers with PND, toward their infants. Methods Sixteen mothers with a diagnosis of PND participated in a double-blind, randomized-controlled, within-subject pilot study. Participants received intranasal OT during one visit and placebo spray on the alternate visit. Maternal protective behavior toward their infant was measured, in the presence of a socially intrusive stranger. Results The enthusiastic stranger paradigm stimulated participants' protective responses in the presence of an intrusive stranger. Furthermore, this protective response of mothers with a diagnosis of PND was increased in the OT condition. Conclusions The study introduces a new paradigm, the enthusiastic stranger paradigm, which may be used to examine a neglected type of parental behavior, that is, protection of offspring. The protective response of mothers with PND increased, in line with the 'tend and defend' effects of OT in animal models. In future work it should be tested whether this protection effect can also be found in nonclinical samples, or whether it is specific for clinically depressed mothers.

Overweight and obesity is prevalent among women of reproductive age (42% BMI > 25 kg/m2) and parity is associated with risk of weight gain. Weight gain greater than that recommended by the Institute of Medicine (IOM)is also associated with lower rates of breastfeeding initiation and duration in women. The aim of this pilot randomised controlled trial is to examine the feasibility of recruiting and maintaining a cohort of pregnant women with the view of reducing postpartum weight retention and improving breastfeeding outcomes. Women (BMI of 25¿35 kg/m2 (n = 36)) were recruited from the John Hunter Hospital antenatal clinic in New South Wales, Australia. Participants were stratified by BMI and randomised to one of three groups with follow-up to six months postpartum. Women received a dietary intervention with or without breastfeeding support from a lactation consultant, or were assigned to a wait-list control group where the dietary intervention was issued at three months postpartum. Feasibility and acceptability was assessed by participation rates and questionnaire. Analysis of variance and covariance was conducted to determine any differences between groups. Sixty-nine per cent of the participants were still enrolled at six months postpartum. This pilot demonstrated some difficulties in recruiting women from antenatal clinics and retaining them in the trial. Although underpowered; the results on weight; biomarkers and breastfeeding outcomes indicated improved metabolic health.

Human ether-a-go-go-related gene (hERG) potassium channels determine cardiac action potential and contraction duration. Human uterine contractions are underpinned by an action potential that also possesses an initial spike followed by prolonged depolarization. Here we show that hERG channel proteins (a-conducting and ßinhibitory subunits) and hERG currents exist in isolated patch-clamped human myometrial cells. We show that hERG channel activity suppresses contraction amplitude and duration before labour, thereby facilitating quiescence. During established labour, expression of ß-inhibitory protein is markedly enhanced, resulting in reduced hERG activity that is associated with an increased duration of uterine action potentials and contractions. Thus, changes in hERG channel activity contribute to electrophysiological mechanisms that produce contractions during labour. We also demonstrate that this system fails in women with elevated BMI, who have enhanced hERG activity as a result of low ß-inhibitory protein expression, which likely contributes to the weak contractions and poor labour outcomes observed in many obese women necessitating caesarean delivery. © 2014 Macmillan Publishers Limited.

Progesterone regulates female reproductive function predominantly through two nuclear progesterone receptors (PRs), PR-A and PR-B. During human parturition myometrial PR expression is altered to favour PR-A, which activates pro-labour genes. We have previously identified histone H3 lysine 4 trimethylation (H3K4me3) as an activator of myometrial PR-A expression at labour. To further elucidate the mechanisms regulating PR isoform expression in the human uterus at labour, we have (i) determined the methylation profile of the cytosine-guanine dinucleotides (CpG) island in the promoter region of the PR gene and (ii) identified the histone-modifying enzymes that target the H3K4me3 mark at the PR promoters in term and preterm human myometrial tissues obtained before and after labour onset. Bisulphite sequencing showed that despite overall low levels of PR CpG island methylation, there was a significant decrease in methylated CpGs with labour in both preterm (P < 0.05) and term (P < 0.01) groups downstream of the PR-B transcription start site. This methylation change was not associated with altered PR-B expression, but may contribute to the increase in PR-A expression with labour. Chromatin immunoprecipitation revealed that the histone methyltransferase, SET and MYND domain-containing protein 3 (SMYD3), bound to the PR gene at significantly higher levels at the PR-A promoter compared with the PR-B promoter (P < 0.010), with no labour-associated changes observed. The H3K4 demethylase, Jumonji AT-rich interactive domain 1A (JARID1A), also bound to the PR-A, but not to the PR-B promoter prior to term labour, and decreased significantly at the onset of labour (P = 0.014), providing a mechanism for the previously reported increase in H3K4me3 level and PR-A expression with labour. Our studies suggest that epigenetic changes mediated by JARID1A, SMYD3 and DNA methylation may be responsible, at least in part, for the functional progesterone withdrawal that precipitates human labour. © The Author 2014.

Lymphocytic hypophysitis is an organ-specific autoimmune disease characterised by destruction of pituitary hormone-secreting cells due to attack by self-reactive T lymphocytes. The spectrum of pituitary autoantibodies characterised by indirect immunofluorescence (IF) in these patients has not been substantially defined. The purpose of this study was to determine the spectrum of pituitary autoantibodies in 16 lymphocytic hypophysitis patients. Pituitary sections were prepared from guinea pigs and sera from 16 lymphocytic hypophysitis patients (13 biopsy proven and 3 suspected cases) and 13 healthy controls were evaluated for immunoreactivity to the pituitary tissue by immunofluorescence. A single patient was found to have high titre pituitary autoantibodies against guinea pig pituitary tissue. Immunoreactivity was directed against cells of the intermediate lobe. We present the case report of the patient who is a 24 year old woman that presented with headaches, polyuria and polydipsia. A uniformly enlarged pituitary mass was visible on MRI and a diagnosis of suspected lymphocytic hypophysitis was made. Based on our IF study, we postulate this patient has an autoimmune process directed towards the major cell type in the intermediate lobe, the melanotroph. Pre-adsorption with peptides representing adrenocorticotropic hormone, a-melanocyte stimulating hormone or ß-endorphin did not affect the IF signal suggesting our patient's pituitary autoantibodies may target some other product of Proopiomelanocortin (POMC) processing, such as corticotrophin-like intermediate peptide or ¿-lipoprotein. Alternatively, the autoantibodies may target a peptide completely unrelated to POMC processing. © 2013 Springer Science+Business Media New York.

Post-partum weight retention (WR) occurs in 60-80% of women with some retaining =10kg with contributing factors reported as pre-pregnancy body mass index (BMI), gestational weight gain (GWG) and breastfeeding. A longitudinal study of pregnancy, with 12-month post-partum follow-up was conducted to determine factors associated with WR. Pregnant women (n=152) were recruited from the John Hunter Hospital antenatal clinic in New South Wales, Australia. Pre-pregnancy weight was self-reported; weight was measured four times during pregnancy (for GWG) and in the first 12 months post-partum. Infant feeding data were obtained via questionnaires. Breastfeeding was categorised as exclusive, predominant, complementary or not breastfeeding. Linear mixed models tested the predictors of WR, with and without adjustment for potential confounders. Compared with pre-pregnancy weight, 68% of women retained weight at 12 months, median (interquartile range) [4.5kg (2.1-8.9)]. After adjustment, GWG was positively associated with WR (P<0.01), but pre-pregnancy weight did not predict WR. For each additional week of any breastfeeding, 0.04kg less weight was retained. Compared with women who retained weight, those women who did retain had higher rates of exclusive breastfeeding at three months (P<0.05), but the number of weeks of exclusive breastfeeding failed to predict WR for all women. WR following childbirth is common and associated with GWG, while the number of weeks of 'any' breastfeeding contributed to post-partum weight loss. Whether these factors are modifiable strategies to optimise the weight status of women at this life stage requires further research.

Background: Postnatal depression is common and negatively affects the mother-baby relationship; oxytocin has been found to have positive effects on parenting behavior. We hypothesize that intranasal administration of oxytocin to mothers with depression will influence their parenting related expressed emotion, creating a better basis for sensitive parenting. Methods: Twenty-five postnatally depressed mothers with infants less than one year participated in a randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled within-subject clinical study in 2011. Mothers attended an out-patient perinatal psychiatry setting in NSW, Australia. They received 24. IU of oxytocin alternating with placebo approximately one week apart in random order, prior to completing outcome measures. The outcome measures were the Five Minute Speech Sample, the Self-Assessment Manikin and the Controlled Oral Word Association Test. Results: In the oxytocin condition mothers were sadder (p= .01), and they more often initially described their babies as difficult (p= .038), but they reported that the quality of their relationship with their infant was more positive (p= .036). Limitations: Despite an adequate sample size to answer our central hypothesis, a larger sample may have elucidated a moderating effect of childhood trauma. Conclusion: Oxytocin did not make depressed mothers happier but their perception of the relationship with their baby improved. Treatment with intranasal oxytocin might show some unwanted side-effects in depressed individuals. © 2012 Elsevier Inc.

Objective: To determine delivery outcome in women undergoing induction of labor for postdate pregnancy in relation to fetal gender. Study Design: A total of 365 nulliparous and 127 multiparous women carrying singleton postdate pregnancies with unfavorable cervix were enrolled. Clinical characteristics and delivery outcome were analyzed in relation to fetal gender. Results: Women carrying male fetuses showed higher rate of caesarean section than those carrying females, in both nulliparous and multiparous women. Moreover, women carrying male fetuses presented more frequently with (i) interval between induction of labor and delivery >24 hours (P < .0002); (ii) augmentation of labor after cervical ripening (P < .0391); (iii) meconium-stained liquor (P< .0126); and (iv) higher neonatal weight (P < .0011) than those carrying females. Conclusion: Male fetuses are more likely to be associated with higher rates of cesarean section. In maternal fetal medicine, gender differences may add prognostic information on the delivery outcome in women induced for postdate pregnancy. © The Author(s) 2013.

Preterm labour remains a major obstetric problem with only poor methods for prediction of preterm birth and treatments of preterm labour with limited efficacy. Regulation of human parturition is demonstrably different from that in most animals restricting opportunities for relevant research. Recent work suggests a placental clock mechanism regulating the length of pregnancy through the production of the placental peptide Corticotrophin Releasing Hormone. At the end of pregnancy most animals initiate labour with a fall in circulating progesterone concentrations but this does not happen in humans. In humans a functional progesterone withdrawal is initiated by a change in myometrial expression of progesterone receptors, specifically increase expression of the PRA isoforms, which is a dominant repressor of the activating receptor PRB. This new knowledge may help design better strategies for prediction and treatment of preterm labour.

We hypothesized that urocortin might be produced in the pituitary of the late-gestation ovine fetus in a manner that could contribute to the regulation of ACTH output. We used in situ hybridization and immunohistochemistry to identify urocortin mRNA and protein in late-gestation fetal pituitary tissue. Levels of urocortin mRNA rose during late gestation and were associated temporally with rising concentrations of pituitary proopiomelanocortin (POMC) mRNA. Urocortin was localized both to cells expressing ACTH and to non-ACTH cells by use of dual immunofluorescence histochemistry. Transfection of pituitary cultures with urocortin antisense probe reduced ACTH output, whereas added urocortin stimulated ACTH output from cultured pituitary cells. Cortisol infusion for 96 h in chronically catheterized late-gestation fetal sheep significantly stimulated levels of pituitary urocortin mRNA. We conclude that urocortin is expressed in the ovine fetal pituitary and localizes with, and can stimulate output of, ACTH. Regulation of urocortin by cortisol suggests a mechanism to override negative feedback and sustain feed-forward of fetal hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal function, leading to birth.

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship of maternal serum activin A, inhibin A, and follistatin with fetal growth and placental function. STUDY DESIGN: Inhibin A, activin A, and follistatin were measured in maternal serum that was stored from normally grown (control subjects, n = 50) and small-for-gestational-age pregnancies (n = 49), prospectively classified as normal small-for-gestational-age pregnancy or fetal growth-restricted pregnancy with the use of umbilical artery Doppler ultrasound. RESULTS: Activin A and inhibin A were significantly increased in fetal growth-restricted pregnancies compared with control subjects (activin A: regression coefficient, 0.54, P < .001; inhibin A: regression coefficient, 0.47, P = .003). The activin:follistatin ratio was significantly higher in fetal growth-restricted pregnancies compared with control subjects (P < .001). There were no significant differences between analyte levels of normal small-for-gestational-age pregnancies and control subjects. CONCLUSION: Maternal serum activin A, inhibin A, and activin:follistatin ratio are raised in fetal growth-restricted pregnancies but not in normal small-for-gestational age pregnancies. This provides further evidence of the difference between subgroups within small-for-gestational-age pregnancies and emphasizes the need to stratify for this in research.

Corticotrophin-releasing hormone (CRH) is a 41 amino acid neuropeptide that is expressed in the hypothalamus and the human placenta. Placental CRH production has been linked to the determination of gestational length in the human. Although encoded by a single copy gene, CRH expression in the placenta is regulated differently to the hypothalamus. Glucocorticoids stimulate CRH promoter activity in the placenta but inhibit it's activity in the hypothalamus, via mechanisms involving different regions of the CRH promoter. We discuss how various stimuli alter CRH promoter activity and why these responses are unique to the placenta.

Male mandrills (Mandrillus sphinx) have spectacular secondary sexual adornments. These include red and blue sexual skin on the face, rump, and genitalia; a sternal scent-marking gland; and a "fatted" rump. Mandrills are seasonal breeders, and in other seasonally-breeding primate species members of both sexes may show increased expression of secondary sexual characteristics during the mating season. We examined changes in male secondary sexual adornments and testosterone levels, in relation to seasonal changes in the female reproductive cycle and sexual skin morphology, in two semifree-ranging mandrill groups. Females showed circannual changes in sexual skin tumescence, and periods of tumescence peaked from May-July in a long-established group. However, formation of a second, smaller group, two years previous to commencement of the study, disrupted the seasonal pattern of sexual skin tumescence and births. As the groups occupied adjacent enclosures, it appears that social factors, as well as physical environment, affected the seasonal patterning of reproduction in females. Male mandrills, by contrast, did not exhibit marked circannual changes in secondary sexual traits. Although adult male testicular volume and circulating testosterone levels increased significantly during the mating season, sexual skin coloration and rump "fattedness" showed no consistent changes with season. There was some evidence to suggest that maturing males (ages 5-8 yr) showed increased development of red sexual skin during mating periods, but once males had fully developed secondary sexual adornments, they remained stable throughout the year. The possible reasons for this are discussed in relation to intermale competition and social organization in mandrills. © 2001 Wiley-Liss, Inc.
