Abstract

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. There were 4 up- and 89 downregulated genes. Among these, 7 genes CYP1A1, APOB, RPH3A, NRXN1, LINC01206, AL157396.1, UNC80 achieved an FDR p-value of
