Sofia -- film festival
Sat 3/23/2019


This Arabic/French film, directed by Meryem Benm'Barek-Aloïsi, takes a caustic look at contemporary Moroccan society—where premarital sex and giving birth out of wedlock remains a crime. As 20-year-old Sofia suffers from pregnancy denial, the film uses the ensuing family drama to expose the hypocrisy intrinsic to Morocco’s patriarchal culture.

Paper: Maternal phthalate exposure promotes allergic airway inflammation over 2 generations through epigenetic modifications

Authors: Susanne Jahreis, PhD, Saskia Trump, PhD, Mario Bauer, MD, Tobias Bauer, PhD,c Loreen Th€urmann, MSc, Ralph Feltens, PhD, Qi Wang, PhD, Lei Gu, PhD, Konrad Gr€utzmann, PhD, Stefan R€oder, PhD, Marco Averbeck, MD, Dieter Weichenhan, PhD, Christoph Plass, PhD, Ulrich Sack, MD, Michael Borte, MD, Virginie Dubourg, MSc, Gerrit Sch€u€urmann, PhD, Jan C. Simon, MD, Martin von Bergen, PhD, J€org Hackerm€uller, PhD,h Roland Eils, PhD, Irina Lehmann, PhD, and Tobias Polte, PhD

Abstract:
Background: Prenatal and early postnatal exposures to environmental factors are considered responsible for the increasing prevalence of allergic diseases. Although there is some evidence for allergy-promoting effects in children because of exposure to plasticizers, such as phthalates, findings of previous studies are inconsistent and lack mechaistic information.

Objective: We investigated the effect of maternal phthalate exposure on asthma development in subsequent generations and their underlying mechanisms, including epigenetic alterations.

Methods: Phthalate metabolites were measured within the prospective mother-child cohort Lifestyle and Environmental Factors and Their Influence on Newborns Allergy Risk (LINA) and correlated with asthma development in the children. A murine transgenerational asthma model was used to identify involved pathways.


Results: In LINA maternal urinary concentrations of mono-nbutyl phthalate, a metabolite of butyl benzyl phthalate (BBP), were associated with an increased asthma risk in the children. Using a murine transgenerational asthma model, we demonstrate a direct effect of BBP on asthma severity in the offspring with a persistently increased airway inflammation up to the F2 generation. This disease-promoting effect was mediated by BBP-induced global DNA hypermethylation in CD41 T cells of the offspring because treatment with a DNA-demethylating agent alleviated exacerbation of allergic
airway inflammation. Thirteen transcriptionally downregulated genes linked to promoter or enhancer hypermethylation were identified. Among these, the GATA-3 repressor zinc finger protein 1 (Zfpm1) emerged as a potential mediator of the enhanced susceptibility for TH2-driven allergic asthma.

Conclusion: These data provide strong evidence that maternal BBP exposure increases the risk for allergic airway inflammation in the offspring by modulating the expression of genes involved in TH2 differentiation through epigenetic alterations. (J Allergy Clin Immunol 2018;141:741-53.)

Historical Epidemiology and Global Disease Challenges
Tue 4/2/2019 6:30PM - 7:30PM
Public Health Auditorium (G23)

Historical epidemiology—the study of past disease control interventions and their impacts on the dynamics of disease transmission—holds the promise of creating a more robust and more nuanced foundation for global public health decision-making by developing an empirical record from which we can draw historical lessons. It can unearth past successes and failures in order to suggest alternative or hybrid approaches to the control of epidemic or endemic disease processes. What should be done to institutionalize its practice?

Abstract:
BACKGROUND
Higher intake of marine n−3 (also called omega-3) fatty acids has been associated with reduced risks of cardiovascular disease and cancer in several observational studies. Whether supplementation with n−3 fatty acids has such effects in general populations at usual risk for these end points is unclear.

METHODS
We conducted a randomized, placebo-controlled trial, with a two-by-two factorial design, of vitamin D3 (at a dose of 2000 IU per day) and marine n−3 fatty acids (at a dose of 1 g per day) in the primary prevention of cardiovascular disease and cancer among men 50 years of age or older and women 55 years of age or older in the United States. Primary end points were major cardiovascular events (a composite of myocardial infarction, stroke, or death from cardiovascular causes) and invasive cancer of any type. Secondary end points included individual components of the composite cardiovascular end point, the composite end point plus coronary revascularization (expanded composite of cardiovascular events), site-specific cancers, and death from cancer. Safety was also assessed. This article reports the results of the comparison of n−3 fatty acids with placebo.

RESULTS

A total of 25,871 participants, including 5106 black participants, underwent randomization. During a median follow-up of 5.3 years, a major cardiovascular event occurred in 386 participants in the n−3 group and in 419 in the placebo group (hazard ratio, 0.92; 95% confidence interval [CI], 0.80 to 1.06; P = 0.24). Invasive cancer was diagnosed in 820 participants in the n−3 group and in 797 in the placebo group (hazard ratio, 1.03; 95% CI, 0.93 to 1.13; P = 0.56). In the analyses of key secondary end points, the hazard ratios were as follows: for the expanded composite end point of cardiovascular events, 0.93 (95% CI, 0.82 to 1.04); for total myocardial infarction, 0.72 (95% CI, 0.59 to 0.90); for total stroke, 1.04 (95% CI, 0.83 to 1.31); for death from cardiovascular causes, 0.96 (95% CI, 0.76 to 1.21); and for death from cancer (341 deaths from cancer), 0.97 (95% CI, 0.79 to 1.20). In the analysis of death from any
cause (978 deaths overall), the hazard ratio was 1.02 (95% CI, 0.90 to 1.15). No excess risks of bleeding or other serious adverse events were observed.

CONCLUSIONS
Supplementation with n−3 fatty acids did not result in a lower incidence of major cardiovascular events or cancer than placebo. (Funded by the National Institutes of Health and others; VITAL ClinicalTrials.gov number, NCT01169259.)
