PharmaTox in Budapest

Several PharmaTox researchers attended the 28th conference of the European Network of Teratology Information Services (ENTIS) in Budapest in September 2017.

A group of 12 PharmaTox researchers attended the ENTIS conference in Budapest, September 2-5. 

We had three oral presentations: 

  • Kristina Gervin: Long-term prenatal exposure to paracetamol is associated with DNA methylation differences in children with ADHD.

  • Eivind Ystrøm: Paracetamol exposure in pregnancy and offspring ADHD: familial risk and confounding by indication.

  • Anna Frank: Patterns and predictors of hypothyroid medication use in relation to pregnancy: a drug utilization study.

We also presented four posters: 

  • Hedvig Nordeng (BichTroung): SafeStart - An intervention study to promote healthier pregnancies. 
  • Mari Spildrejorde and Martin Falck: Human embryonic stem cells as a model for paracetamol induced epigenetic deregulation and neurotoxicity. 
  • Gro C. Havnen: Treatment of multiple sclerosis during pregnancy and lactation - Updated national treatment guidelines in Norway. 
  • Mussie Ghezu Hadera: Effects of methadone in the developing chicken embryo as a model of neurodevelopmental toxicity.
