Objective:

Dartmouth, in collaboration with colleagues at Stanford University, Harvard Medical School, and the University of Miami, has established the Center for Children's Environmental Health and Disease Prevention Research in rural New England. The Center's fundamental purpose is to identify and address key emerging issues related to health impacts of early life environmental exposures on children. Our center specifically focuses on (1) understanding impacts of prevalent, low level drinking water, food and other sources of environmental contaminants, such as arsenic, on children's health; (2) translating new scientific discoveries and applying state-of-the-art technologies to identify vulnerable windows of exposure and their effects on children’s immune response, growth and development; and (3) identifying early biomarkers of environmental exposure and disease pathogenesis. These complex questions must be addressed with multidisciplinary approaches and through the involvement of stakeholders over multiple contexts. Therefore, we have brought together an exciting, multidisciplinary team of scientists to carry out three interrelated research projects and two integrative cores.

Center members bring skills and expertise in environmental and public health, risk communication, clinical medicine, epidemiology, cell and molecular biology, immunology, ecology, nutrition, biostatistics, biomedical informatics, and trace element analyses. Each brings a unique perspective and a deep commitment to advancing the Center's goals.

Project 1: Childhood Immune Function and Exposure

The primary aims of our project are to test the hypothesis that in utero and early life arsenic and other exposures are related to increased occurrence of such childhood conditions as (1) infections (number, type and severity of infections), in particular respiratory infections, in the first 5 years of life; (2) allergy and atopy in the first 5 years of life; and (3) diminished vaccine response (to diphtheria/tetanus/pertussis, pneumococcus and polio) at age 1. The secondary aim is to investigate the relation between in utero and early life arsenic exposure on the development of the infant intestinal microbiome in the first year of life (based on stool samples taken at 6 weeks and 12 months of age). We hypothesize that arsenic exposure will be associated with decreased diversity of the microbiome (e.g., based on the Simpson Diversity Index) and differences in the relative abundance of specific phylotypes (e.g., bacterial genera and species) and/or predominant gene families or metabolic pathways.

Project 2: Water and Dietary Arsenic Exposure Related to Early Growth and Neurodevelopment

The project aims are (1) To estimate arsenic and other exposures from food and water ingestion and to relate these intakes to biomarkers of exposure during the first 5 years of life, a period of rapidly changing diet for most children; (2) To quantify the association of biomarkers of early life exposures with physical growth patterns during the first 5 years of life; and (3) To quantify the association of biomarkers of early life exposures with neurodevelopment during the first 5 years of life.

Project 3: Placental Biomarkers of Exposure and Outcome

The project aims are (1) To identify regions of variable DNA methylation in the placenta associated with in utero exposure to arsenic by examining the methylation status of relevant candidate genes and regions using quantitative bisulfite pyrosequencing and genome-wide DNA methylation arrays and biomarker-based exposure assessment; (2) To identify altered gene expression in the placenta associated with in utero exposure to arsenic by testing the expression of relevant candidate genes, including those identified in Aim 1, and their association with biomarker-based arsenic exposure; and (3) To examine if the arsenic-associated variable DNA methylation and altered gene expression in placenta prospectively relates to child weight growth, infection, and neurodevelopmental outcomes.

Progress Summary:

Project 1: Childhood Immune Function and Exposure

Major Activities: Our project builds off the New Hampshire Birth Cohort Study, a longitudinal study of over 1,500 maternal-infant pairs that has collected a wealth of data. These includematernal health; diet and lifestyle factors; samples of household tap water; maternal blood, urine and toenails (at 24–28 weeks gestation); cord blood and placenta; infant meconium, nails, urine and stool; and maternal toenails at 2 weeks postpartum. Additionally, we have conducted a structured review of prenatal and delivery records. During the formative phase of our project, we began collecting more detailed information on maternal and newborn infections and allergies through a review of the medical recordsand initiated an interval telephone interview for updated infection allergy/atopy information from the child’s caregiver over the first year of life. As part of our full Center's project, after refining our protocols and study instruments, we continue this follow-up—both through a review of pediatric records in collaboration with Project 2and the interval telephone interviews at 18, 24, 30, 36, 42and 50 months. Through a National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences R21 grant in collaboration with Dr. Kari Nadeau of the Berkeley/Stanford Children's Center, we have conducted a pilot study to establish a protocol for collecting blood samples from our cohort members at 1 year of age to test for vaccine response. Another focus of our work is to investigate novel biomarkers of immune function and response. This includes microbiome analysis of infant stool samples beginning at birth and through the first year of life.

Specific Objectives: Infectious diseases remain the leading cause of illness in children in the United Statesand of mortality in children worldwide. Additionally, the prevalence of allergy and atopic diseases have become more widespread among children in recent years, for reasons that are not fully understood. Therefore, our objectives are to assess the relation of environmentally relevant levels of arsenic (and other exposures) with clinical and biologic measures of early childhood immune function (e.g., infection/allergy/atopy, vaccine responseand intestinal microbial acquisition). To achieve our objectives, we are leveraging an ongoing U.S. prospective study of women and infants enrolled during pregnancy who are residents of New Hampshire and who obtain household water from private wells, a potential source of arsenic exposure in the region.

Understanding whether common levels of exposure during the vulnerable periods of fetal development and early childhood impact immune response have widespread implications for public health and practice change.

Significant Findings: We continue analyses of the first year of life of infants in the New Hampshire Birth Cohort Study, including the relationship between in utero arsenic exposure and an increased risk of both infant wheezing and infection requiring a physician visit or a prescription medicine. We furthered our collaborative work on dietary exposure to arsenic reporting rice and rice product consumption as well as other solid foods as routes of exposure for infants transitioning to solid food (Publication: Signes-Pastor et al., 2018). We also completed our analysis of pre- and post-natal arsenic exposure in relation to the infant 6-week gut microbiome (Publication: Hoen et al., 2018).

Key Outcomes and Other Achievements: Project 1’s wealth of resources continues to grow with data collected through our interval surveys and collected biological samples. These resources allow us to further explore the role of dietary exposures, incidence of infection and possible mediating effects of the maternal and infant microbiota on maternal and infant health in the perinatal period and early childhood. We continue to engage physicians in this research to promote and expedite translation of our findings to the clinical setting and community. We also collaborated with a pilot study on exposure to arsenic via seaweeds (Publication: Taylor et al, 2017) and are in the process of exploring untargeted metabolomics data from infant stool samples to examine possible differences in the infant microbiome due to feeding mode (breastfeeding vs. formula feeding), delivery type (vaginal vs. C-section) and metal exposure.

Project 2: Water and Dietary Arsenic Exposure Related to Early Growth and Neurodevelopment

Assessment of dietary exposure to arsenic during the first year of life and at ages 3 and 5 has continued using the approaches previously developed. We continue to assess physical growth of children from birth to age 5 years and to perform neurodevelopmental assessments using mailed standardized behavioral assessments at age 3 (the Social Responsive Scale, 2nd edition [SRS-2], and the Behavior Assessment System for Children, 2nd edition [BASC-2]) and more detailed, in-person assessments at age 5-years (the Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence, 4th edition; the Bruininks-Oseretsky Test of Motor Proficiency, 2nd edition; and parent-completed BASC-2 and SRS-2 instruments). To date we have conducted over 485 in-person neurodevelopmental assessments on 5-year old children and have collected over 745 neurodevelopmental surveys from caregivers of 3-year-olds. Our findings have made important contributions to understanding the impact of diet, particularly during infancy and early childhood, on the risk of early life exposure to arsenic. These results have been directly applicable to efforts to improve food safety for children. In addition, we are finding potential associations between early life arsenic exposures and some of our health outcomes. Confirmation and expansion of these findings over the coming year will be critical to understanding the child health risks of arsenic at the low-level exposures that are prevalent in many populations.

Project 3: Placental Biomarkers of Exposure and Outcome

Major Activities: In the original project application, we proposed to examine a panel of candidate genes for their DNA methylation status and their expression, and we have worked to design, validateand implement pyrosequencing assays and a nanostring panel for a number of these genes. We also proposed and have undertaken genome-wide analyses of DNA methylation using selected samples from the New Hampshire Birth Cohort Studyand have begun to undertake analyses of the data obtained from all of these assays. We will continue to perform analyses on the extant data moving forward.

Specific Objectives: This project is compelled by the hypothesis that environmental exposures encountered by a pregnant woman impact the gene expression of the infant's placenta via epigenetic and other mechanisms, and these functional alterations are associated with developmental outcomes in the children. Our objectives are to identify epigenetic and gene expression alterations in the placenta associated with maternal and infant biomarkers of in utero arsenic exposureand to examine how these alterations are associated with critical health outcomes in the first few years of life. To accomplish these objectives, we are utilizing the existing and growing resources of the ongoing New Hampshire Birth Cohort Studyand are thus translating key findings from basic research to human populations.

Significant Findings: We are moving forward with our analyses focused on the impact of metal exposure on control of gene expression in the placenta. We have undertaken studies looking at specific genes in the placenta that are involved in the way cells interactand have shown those to be disrupted with exposure to the toxic metal cadmium(Publication: Everson et al., 2016). We have also examined how exposure to traffic pollution can impact the mechanisms thatcontrol the expression of genes in the placenta, and we identified important alterations to the pattern of gene expression control that can be impacted by traffic exposuresand traffic exposures that can impact birth weight (Publication: Kingsley, 2016). DNA methylation data from both the Rhode Islandand New Hampshire cohorts have been used in large meta-analyses as part of the PACE consortium (Publication: Felix et al., 2017), including relating maternal BMI to altered patterns of placental DNA methylation (Publication: Sharp et al., 2017). We have also focused analyses on exposures to the toxic metal cadmium and have published a report demonstrating altered expression of steroidogenic and apoptotic genes associated with cadmium levels (Publication: Environ Res 2018)and a number of regions of variable DNA methylation associated with placental cadmium concentrations in both cohorts (Publication: Everson et al., 2018).

Working towardour goals in Aim 2, Dr. Robbins and his team extended their analysis to the expression of 29 genes that regulate the signaling pathways that drive early development. These analyses highlighted two genes whose expression is associated with U-arsenic levels. Interestingly, we noticed that when such data were further stratified based on the sex of the fetus, additional genes were identified whose expression was associated with U-arsenic. These results suggested that the expression of a number of the drivers of early human development is modified by arsenic exposure in a sexually dimorphic way. When we extended these findings to the analysis of infant birth weight, we noted that the U-arsenic associated gene, GLI3, was also associated with birth weight in female placentae, suggesting that it may be a key signaling node mediating arsenic's effects on fetal growth. These findings were recently published in E Bio Medicine (Publication: Winterbottom et al., 2015).

Core B: Community Outreach and Translation Core (COTC)

The Dartmouth COTC continues to actively engage with key children's environmental health stakeholders. Our collaborative relationship with the Dartmouth CO-OP Primary Care Practice Based Research Network provides us with outreach capabilities to 200 clinical sites in New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine. Through a partnership with the New Hampshire State Public Health Laboratory, we have created customized water testing kits for clinical practices to dispense to families who are identified as private well users. We are currently piloting these kits with 10 practicesand refining them with feedback from clinicians and patients. The unique partnership we fostered between a public health lab and a network of primary care providers led to an invitation from the National Environmental Health Association to participate in a session at the 2018 American Public Health Association annual meeting devoted to water health.

A postdoctoral trainee, Dr. Xiaofei He, joined the COTC this past year. She was integral to our partnership with the perinatal epidemiologist at the New Hampshire State Department of Health and Human Services who administers the Pregnancy Risk Assessment Monitoring System (PRAMS). PRAMS is a state-based Centers for Disease Control and Prevention annual survey of a representative sample of women giving birth in each calendar year. Dr. He analyzed PRAMS data related to the source of drinking water and the testing of private wells during pregnancy for arsenic for the years 2013 - 2015. Her findings showed that while 40 percent of New Hampshire women surveyed identified a private well as their water source, only one-third tested their private well for arsenic, and only 10 percent received testing advice from their obstetric provider.

Future Activities:

Project 1: Childhood Immune Function and Exposure

Our focus over the coming grant period will be to complete and analyze follow-up data through the interval interviews and medical record reviews. We will complete collection of 1-year blood samples and perform laboratory analyses of vaccine response (to tetanus and diphtheria toxoid, pertussis, pneumococcus, and polio vaccine) and continue to obtain repeated stool samples for microbiome analyses. We will complete longer-term analyses of child immune outcomes, including asthma, allergy and vaccine response, in relation to both in utero and postnatal arsenic and other exposures. We will continue to strive to engage early career investigators and trainees in our research. We plan to present our research findings at scientific conferences, publish our initial findings in the scientific literature and work toward disseminating our findings to relevant communities to implement practice change. We will continue to implement rigorous, robust and unbiased quality assurance procedures. We also will continue to work with the COTC to design interventions to encourage private well testing and to understand the barriers to remediation of arsenic contamination in private drinking water supplies and work with our COTC, as well as collaboratively with other Children's Centers, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and other agencies around issues regarding arsenic in rice and other childhood exposures that may pose short- or long-term health impacts.

Project 2: Water and Dietary Arsenic Exposure Related to Early Growth and Neurodevelopment

In the coming year, we will continue with our dietary assessments and urinary and toenail biomarker collection at the targeted time points. We will also continue reviewing physical growth and health data for consented pediatric participants. In addition, we anticipate completing additional 3-year neurodevelopmental evaluations and will continue the 5-year in-person evaluations of urinary arsenic biomarkers, neurodevelopment and anthropometry in the next grant year.

Project 3: Placental Biomarkers of Exposure and Outcome

The research team of Drs. Marsit and Robbins has made tremendous progress in moving their analyses forward. Dr. Marsit's team is now continuing the analyses obtained from the genome-wide assessments and are developing analyses linking this placental data to prospective outcomes. Dr. Robbins is in the process of expanding the gene expression profiling of candidate genes to an additional subset of the birth cohort. Further, he is in the process of examining how arsenic speciation might contribute to some of the sexually dimorphic responses noted above. The research team is on track to complete the goals and objectives as outlined in the proposal.

Core A: The Administrative, Career Development and Research Integration Core

In the next reporting period, the Administrative, Career Development and Research Integration Core will provide support critical to completing the Center's research projects and cores under the directorship of Dr. Margaret Karagas. Specifically, the Core will provide the support for a programmer/analyst in the Informatics Collaboratory for Design, Development, and Dissemination (ic3d.dartmouth.edu) and will facilitate the coordination and oversight of the state-of-the-art databases and shared resources. This support will enable the transition of the Center's existing data into a more usable data warehouse and ensure its integrity. The data platform will provide efficient query, analysis and reporting by Center investigators. Data entry systems, rigorous data quality checks for the questionnaires and biosamples collected as part of the Center will completed. We will provide an application programming interface that will allow authorized systems or tools—such as REDCap, label printers and barcode scanners—to access selected system capabilities. Secure access to the database using tools such as R and SAS will be used to construct data analysis files. This support is crucial for Center project and core leaders and trainees to complete their analyses, and it will expedite the publication of manuscripts and completion of research and/or training aims and objectives.

The Core will further support the leadership of the Center to ensure effective administrative oversight through active communication, strategic planning for ongoing sustainability, and compliance with all regulatory and fiscal requirements to support the goals of the Center. The Core will provide support to the Center's Child Health Specialist, Dr. John Moeschler, who will continue to ensure the success of the Center. He will continue to act as a liaison to the Chair of the Department of Pediatrics and the Children's Hospital at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center,to primary pediatric care providers and leaders in local and regional health communities and agencies. He will help coordinate translation efforts with other Center health care providers, representing the Center in national committees and organizations involved in health care delivery to children, as well as research, policy and regulation regarding children's environmental health, and participating in the COTC activities. Finally, one of our Center's top priorities is to promote the careers of new investigators by identifying and fostering the success of talented early career scientists who are motivated to address critical issues in children's health. Our team of early career faculty and mentors is diverse with a high proportion of women and ethnic minorities. Dr. Gilbert-Diamond, a Faculty Development Investigator, will continue to receive support through this At Cost Extension year.

In summary, we will provide ongoing support for our dynamic Children's Environmental Health and Disease Prevention Research Center, including for key Center members—such as our Faculty Development Investigator, a data manager/analyst and a COTC postdoctoral trainee—and travel to the Annual Meeting of the Children's Program, during the next reporting period. This will permit the completion of statistical analyses, scientific presentations and publications of our Center's research on the sources and health impacts of common environmental exposures, such as arsenic and other exposures, on child health and development. It will also enhance the translation of these findings to the public, medical community, regulators and policy makers. Thus, continuation of our Children's Environmental Health and Disease Prevention Research Center holds great promise for addressing environmental health issues facing children today and impacting their health throughout life.

Core B: COTC

Our focus in the next year is to (1) disseminate these results to obstetric providers in New Hampshire and identify ways we can assist in implementing well water testing initiatives, (2) analyze the soon-to-be-released 2016 PRAMS data, and (3) work with the state's single largest provider of prenatal care to add questions related to drinking water source and testing status to the electronic prenatal record. As part of her postdoctoral training Dr. He will be implementing a pilot study to address ways in which prenatal care providers can successfully promote private well testing as part of routine prenatal screening and prevention education. An additional focus for this next year is to further expand and refine our newly launched social media initiative. Collaborating with the PEHSUS and other Children's Centers, we have deployed the Hootsuite Social Media and Marketing Dashboard and are actively creating our own messages, as well as promoting messages from the other Centers.
