Abstract: Microplastics are harmful to the environment and human, which has been receiving high attention in recent decades. The fetal period is a very vulnerable stage throughout the life course. However, maternal exposure to microplastics is likely to influence fetus through placenta. The study provides an overview of global microplastic exposure and maternal exposure during pregnancy, and details placental exposure, potential adverse effects on the fetus, and possible mechanisms, with the aim of providing some ideas for further studies.

Key words: microplastics, exposure, pregnancy, placenta

摘要: 微塑料对环境和人类的危害在近几十年来受到持续关注。在整个生命历程中,胎儿期是非常脆弱的时期,而母体微塑料暴露很可能通过胎盘影响胎儿。本文概述了全球微塑料暴露和妊娠期母体暴露情况,详细介绍了胎盘暴露、对胎儿的潜在不良影响及可能机制,以期为后续研究提供一定的思路。
