Inflammation seems to play a role in the pathogenesis of perinatal brain damage in fetuses/infants born much before term. We raise the possibility that noninflammatory phenomena induce endoplasmic reticulum stress, which, in turn, leads to the unfolded protein response, which is followed by apoptosis-promoting processes and inflammation. Perhaps by these events, noninflammatory stimuli lead to perinatal brain damage.
