Viral Infections in Pregnancy Can Cause Behavioral Abnormalities in Offspring

A new research done by scientists in University of Saskatchewan on rats revealed that viral infections in pregnancy period can cause behavioral abnormalities in offspring.

The rats which were exposed to a simulated viral infection while in the uterus had undergone neurological changes that caused abnormal behaviour after it was born. The in vitro babies who are exposed to flu virus are at risk of developing schizophrenia and autism, according to the researchers.


The study confirms the hypothesis that experiences such as inflammation during pregnancy can affect the development of the brain of the offspring and hence special care has to be taken by the parents to ensure good health during the gestational period.
