    • Augmented uterine artery blood flow and oxygen delivery protect andeans from altitude-associated reductions in fetal growth 

      Julian, Colleen Glyde; Wilson, Megan J; López, Miriam; Yamashiro, Henry; Téllez, Wilma; Rodríguez, Armando; Bigham, Abigail W; Shriver, Mark D; Rodríguez, Carmelo; Vargas, Enrique; Moore, Lorna G (Am J Physiol Regul Integr Comp Physiol, 2009-02-20)
      Abstract. The effect of high altitude on reducing birth weight is markedly less in populations of high- (e.g., Andeans) relative to low-altitude origin (e.g., Europeans). Uterine artery (UA) blood flow is greater ...
    • Intrauterine growth restriction, preeclampsia, and intrauterine mortality at high altitude in Bolivia 

      Keyes, LE; Armaza, Fernando; Niermeyer, Susan; Vargas, Enrique; Young, David A; Moore, Lorna G (PEDIATRIC RESEARCH, 2003-02-18)
      Abstract. Infant mortality and stillbirth rates in Bolivia are high and birth weights are low compared with other South American countries. Most Bolivians live at altitudes of 2500 m or higher. We sought to determine the ...
    • Uterine artery blood flow, fetal hypoxia and fetal growth 

      Browne, Vaughn A.; Julian, Colleen G.; Toledo-Jaldín, Lilian; Cioffi-Ragan, Darleen; Vargas, Enrique; Moore, Lorna G (Philosophycal Transactions B, 2015-03-13)
      Evolutionary trade-offs required for bipedalism and brain expansion influence the pregnancy rise in uterine artery (UtA) blood flow and, in turn, reproductive success. We consider the importance of UtA blood flow by ...
