Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Deciphering etiopathogenic mechanisms through modern omics techniques allows for the study of both normal and pathological pregnancies. The multi-omics approach (genomics, nutrigenomics, oncogenomics, metabolomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, immunomics) of the most common maternal pathologies (preeclampsia, gestational diabetes, autoimmune diseases, endocrinopathies, oncological diseases in pregnancy, endometriosis, premature birth, nutritional diseases) or fetal pathologies (intrauterine growth restriction, small for gestational age, genetic disorders) represents a field of increasing interest. This is due to the continuous analysis of the processes that lead to the appearance of various diseases in pregnancy, the identification of new markers in their early diagnosis, the establishment of correct therapeutic management, and especially the improvement of the maternal-fetal prognosis.

By editing this Special Issue, we aimed to highlight the continuously growing role of the omics approach regarding the intervention of genetic, immunological, and metabolic factors in normal and pathological pregnancy through the lens of the latest results of medical research.
