Umbilical cord serum was available for testing from 55 infants, all but one of whom tested negative for anti-WNV IgM. The baby that tested positive at birth grew normally and tested negative at the age of 1 month and again at 8 months, suggesting that the original test was a false-positive. The authors say the sensitivity of tests for anti-WNV IgM in cord blood is unknown. Therefore, they write, “We cannot rule out the possibility that occult congenital WNV infection might have contributed to abnormalities that are temporally plausible with the timing of maternal WNV infection.” After the first US case of congenital WNV infection was reported in 2002, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) worked with state health departments to set up a surveillance registry for women who contracted WNV during pregnancy. The Pediatrics report was prepared by a team from the CDC and six state health departments, with the CDC’s Edward B. Hayes, MD, as senior author. The mother of the baby with Down syndromewhich occurs at conceptioncontracted WNV in her second trimester, the report says. The other three abnormalities are believed to originate in the first trimester, but the women didn’t contract WNV until the third trimester. Of the 77 women, 71 gave birth to a total of 72 babies; four women had miscarriages and two had abortions. Sixty-seven babies were born at term, while four were premature and the gestational age was unknown for one. “Thus, of the 7 infants with major malformations, only 3 had defects that could have been caused by maternal WNV infection based on the timing of the infections and the sensitive developmental period for the specific malformations, and none had any conclusive evidence of WNV etiology,” the article states. Seven of 72 children of mothers who had West Nile infection during pregnancy were born with major abnormalities, but the timing of the illnesses indicates that only three of the babies’ defects could have been caused by WNV, according to the report in Pediatrics. There was no clear evidence of WNV infection at birth in any of the three. Mar 9, 2006 (CIDRAP News) Pregnant women who come down with West Nile virus (WNV) infection probably run a fairly small risk of major birth defects in their babies, according to the first analysis of data collected in 16 states. But the authors concluded that only three of those abnormalities could have been related to the mother’s WNV infection, given the timing of the illnesses. These were the polydactyly case (infection in the first trimester) and microcephaly cases (infection in the the second trimester). For the registry, healthcare providers reported WNV cases in pregnant women to health departments, which reported laboratory-confirmed cases to the CDC. The CDC then asked the healthcare providers to ask patients to participate voluntarily in the registry. The rate of miscarriages, preterm delivery, and low-birth-weight babies was no higher in this group than in the general population, the report says. But 7 of the 72 babies had major abnormalities, which is above the general population rate (10.6% versus 5.5%). The defects included one case of polydactyly (an extra toe), two babies with an abnormally small head (microcephaly), one Down syndrome case, one aortic coarctation, one cleft palate, and one case of lissencephaly (lack of normal convolutions of the cerebral cortex). Three babies among the 72 might have been infected during gestation even though their blood tests were negative at birth, the report says. One of these had WNV meningitis at the age of 10 days, but recovered and grew normally. The baby with aortic coarctation had a positive blood test at the age of 1 month but was normal at 14 months. The infant with lissencephaly had WNV encephalitis at 17 days and died at 7 weeks. In 2003 and 2004, 77 women from 16 states had WNV illness and agreed to participate, according to the report. Of those, 52 had West Nile fever, while 18 had neuroinvasive disease, 6 had unspecified illness, and 1 had asymptomatic viremia. Roughly equal proportions of the women were believed to have contracted WNV in the first, second, and third trimesters of pregnancy. The report also says that eight babies had abnormal growth, though most of them eventually achieved age-appropriate growth. It is unclear whether congenital WNV could account for some of the growth abnormalities. Prospective studies are needed to clarify the issues, the authors conclude.

About Puget Sound Energy Facebook0Tweet0Pin0 Washington state’s oldest local energy company, Puget Sound Energy serves 1.1 million electric customers and more than 750,000 natural gas customers in 11 counties. A subsidiary of Puget Energy, PSE meets the energy needs of its customers, in part, through cost-effective energy efficiency, procurement of sustainable energy resources, and far-sighted investment in energy-delivery infrastructure. PSE employees are dedicated to providing great customer service that is safe, dependable and efficient. For more information, visit www.PSE.com. Submitted by Puget Sound EnergyOLYMPIA, Wash. – Puget Sound Energy’s Rock the BulbTM: The Re-Energize Tour 2012 is returning to Thurston County to give even more of the energy company’s residential electric customers the chance to save energy and hundreds of dollars on their electric bill with free light emitting diode (LED) bulbs. Rock the Bulb will be held at the Lacey Fred Meyer at 700 Sleater Kinney Rd. SE, Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 6 and 7, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.New to Rock the Bulb, customers can receive LED bulbs in addition to compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulbs. Customers who attend Rock the Bulb can exchange up to 15 of their old inefficient incandescent bulbs for the same number of free ENERGY STAR®-qualified energy-saving bulbs, choosing from a variety of compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulbs and up to five LED bulbs.“This is the first time we have ever offered our customers LED bulbs at a Rock the Bulb event and we are thrilled to be able to provide them with the opportunity to try LED lighting in their homes,” said Casey Cochrane, PSE’s local government and community relations manager.LED bulbs use up to 80 percent less energy while producing the same quality and brightness of light that customers are used to getting from incandescent bulbs. ENERGY STAR-qualified LED bulbs have a lifespan of up to 25 years and ENERGY STAR-qualified CFL bulbs can last up to 10 years and use up to 78 percent less energy than incandescent bulbs. The average incandescent bulb can last up to 1,000 hours or one year. While an LED bulb isn’t significantly more efficient than a CFL bulb, its long life makes it more cost effective. LED bulbs are also dimmable, making them a great solution for kitchen and dining room lights.In advance of Rock the Bulb, PSE’s Rock the Bulb Street Team will be visiting a variety of local community events, festivals and public locations, engaging customers with free CFL bulbs and Rock the Bulb Backstage Passes. Customers who bring the Backstage Pass they received in their PSE bill or the Backstage Pass postcard they received in the mail — along with their PSE account number — will receive two bonus CFL bulbs, for a total of 17 free bulbs.At Rock the Bulb exchange events, customers can participate in energy efficient games and activities, learn more about PSE’s programs to help save energy and money, and learn how to stay safe around electricity and natural gas at home. Customers who visit all three activity stations and take a pledge to be more energy efficient at home will receive a free WaterSense®-labeled premium-efficiency showerhead. Local radio stations will also broadcast live from the Rock the Bulb exchange event to encourage customers to participate, be more energy efficient, and give customers a chance to win prizes.At Rock the Bulb’s most recent stop in Thurston County this year, nearly 700 Yelm customers exchanged their old incandescent bulbs for nearly 11,000 CFL bulbs, saving a total of $44,000 per year in energy costs. Rock the Bulb will host a second exchange event offering free LED and CFL bulbs in exchange for incandescent bulbs the weekend of Oct. 27-28 in Bellevue, Wash. (location to be announced).For more information on Rock the Bulb: The-Re-Energize Tour 2012 visit PSE.com/RocktheBulb.
