County Medical Examiner Plays Role in SIDS Research

Jan. 13, 2014 (San Diego) The office of the medical examiner is a participant into Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). This research has focused into a brain defect in the hippocampus. This is an area of the brain that regulates breathing and heart rate.

The office has found that this defect was present in about 43 percent of infants whose deaths were not explained. This data so far ranges from 1991 and 2012. The study is still ongoing and the hope is to identify infants that might be susceptible to this syndrome.

According to the County News Service “The long-term study is being conducted by Dr. Hannah C. Kinney and colleagues at Boston Children’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School in Boston, the San Diego County Medical Examiner’s Office and the Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas.  The study is funded by the Eunice Kennedy Shriver NICHD as part of the National Institutes of Health.”
