E Milne et al, Maternal consumption of coffee and tea during pregnancy and risk of childhood ALL: results from an Australian case-control study, Cancer Causes and Controls, published online ahead of print, November 2010

Human Study & Meta-analyses OBJECTIVES: To investigate whether maternal coffee and/or tea consumption during the last 6 months of pregnancy was associated with risk of childhood ALL. METHODS: Data on coffee and tea drinking during pregnancy from 337 case mothers and 697 control mothers were analyzed using unconditional multivariable logistic regression. A meta-analysis of our […]

R Bakker et al, Maternal caffeine intake, blood pressure, and the risk of hypertensive complications during pregnancy. The Generation R study, American Journal of Hypertension, published online ahead of print, December 2010

Human Study Background: Caffeine intake has been suggested to be associated with the risk of hypertension. Less is known about the associations of caffeine intake on maternal cardiovascular adaptations during pregnancy. We examined the associations of caffeine intake in different trimesters of pregnancy with repeatedly measured blood pressure and the risks of pregnancy-induced hypertension and […]

R P Gelber et al, Coffee intake in midlife and risk of dementia and its neuropathologic correlates, Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease, published online ahead of print, December 2010

Human Study While animal data suggest a protective effect of caffeine on cognition, studies in humans remain inconsistent. We examined associations of coffee and caffeine intake in midlife with risk of dementia, its neuropathologic correlates, and cognitive impairment among 3494 men in the Honolulu-Asia Aging Study (mean age 52 at cohort entry, 1965-1968) examined for […]

I Al-Saleh et al, The effect of caffeine consumption on the success rate of pregnancy as well as various performance parameters of in-vitro fertilization treatment, Medical Science Monitor, Volume 16, 2010

Human Study BACKGROUND: This study evaluated the effect of caffeine consumption on the success rate of pregnancy and various in vitro fertilization (IVF) performance parameters. MATERIAL/METHODS: Serum and follicular fluid samples were collected from 619 women undergoing IVF treatment (2002-2003). Caffeine assessment was based on measuring the levels of caffeine in serum and follicular fluid […]

P P Giggey at al, Greater coffee intake in men is associated with steeper age-related increases in blood pressure, American Journal of Hypertension, published online ahead of print, November 2010

Human Study BACKGROUND: Administration of caffeine or caffeinated coffee in laboratory and ambulatory settings results in small to moderate acute increases in blood pressure (BP). However, habitual coffee intake has not been linked conclusively to long-term increases in basal BP, and findings are inconsistent by sex. This study examined longitudinal relations of habitual coffee use […]
