Title: Oxidative Stress, Intrauterine Growth Restriction, and Developmental Programming of Type 2 Diabetes.

Authors: Rashid, Cetewayo S; Bansal, Amita; Simmons, Rebecca A

Abstract: Intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) leads to reduced birth weight and the development of metabolic diseases such as Type 2 diabetes in adulthood. Mitochondria dysfunction and oxidative stress are commonly found in key tissues (pancreatic islets, liver, and skeletal muscle) of IUGR individuals. In this review, we explore the role of oxidative stress in IUGR-associated diabetes etiology.
