OBJECTIVE:: Numerous experiments in animals have been performed to investigate the effect of prenatal undernutrition on the development of hypertension in later life, with inconclusive results. We systematically reviewed animal studies examining the effects of maternal undernutrition on SBP, DBP, and mean arterial blood pressure (BP) in offspring. METHODS:: A search was performed in Medline and Embase to identify articles that reported on maternal undernutrition and hypertension in experimental animal studies. Summary estimates of the effect of undernutrition on SBP, DBP, and mean arterial BP were obtained through meta-analysis. RESULTS:: Of the 6151 articles identified, 194 were considered eligible after screening titles and abstracts. After detailed evaluation, 101 met the inclusion criteria and were included in the review. Both maternal general and protein undernutrition increased SBP [general undernutrition: 14.5 mmHg, 95% confidence interval (CI) 10.8-18.3; protein undernutrition: 18.9 mmHg, 95% CI 16.1-21.8] and mean arterial BP (general undernutrition: 5.0 mmHg, 95% CI 1.4-8.6; protein undernutrition: 10.5 mmHg, 95% CI 6.7-14.2). There was substantial heterogeneity in the results. DBP was increased by protein undernutrition (9.5 mmHg, 95% CI 2.6-16.3), whereas general undernutrition had no significant effect. CONCLUSION:: The results of this meta-analysis generally support the view that in animals, maternal undernutrition - both general and protein - results in increased SBP and mean arterial BP. DBP was only increased after protein undernutrition. The results depended strongly on the applied measurement technique and animal model.
