Maternal opioid use disorder: Placental transcriptome analysis for neonatal opioid withdrawal syndrome

Genomics, Volume 113, Issue 6, 2021, Pages 3610-3617, ISSN 0888-7543

Excessive prenatal opioid exposure may lead to the development of Neonatal Opioid Withdrawal Syndrome (NOWS). RNA-seq was done on 64 formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded placental tissue samples from 32 mothers with opioid use disorder, with newborns with NOWS that required treatment, and 32 prenatally unexposed controls. We identified 93 differentially expressed genes in the placentas of infants with NOWS compared to unexposed controls.
