Maternal Inflammation during Pregnancy and Neurodevelopmental DisordersThis study will utilize the Pregnancy Cohort from the Kaiser Permanente Northern California Research Program on Genes, Environment and Health to characterize the maternal immune profile over pregnancy and evaluate whether there are specific longitudinal patterns that are associated with neurodevelopmental outcomes in the offspring. The project will identify factors that are associated with longitudinal patterns of maternal immune markers over pregnancy and examine whether there is variability in risk factors across different neurodevelopmental outcomes. Factors to be examined include maternal demographic, lifestyle, clinical, and genetic factors.
