Early life events have a long-term influence on an individual's social, emotional, behavioral, and biological well-being [1-3]. The Adverse Childhood Experience (ACE) study, conducted in collaboration between Kaiser Permanente and the US government's Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, questioned over 17,000 adults undergoing routine physical exams about their childhood experiences, which included abuse, neglect, and family dysfunction. According to the findings of the ACE research, some childhood events are important risk factors for disease, substance use and mental health issues, social difficulties, and premature mortality. Child maltreatment and neglect are two of the most serious causes of ACE. Early life trauma is a major cause of mental disease. One in every four youngsters in the United States suffers from a significant mental disease. More than half of all adult mental illnesses begin as children. Chronic medical problems are caused and exacerbated by mental disorders. Treatments are typically insufficient. In the United States, the annual economic effect is in the hundreds of billions of dollars.

Childhood neglect, physical, emotional, and/or sexual abuse, family instability, spousal violence, or simply living in poverty and/or a socially disadvantaged ("rough") violent area are all examples of early life adversity [4]. There is some evidence that the kind, length, and degree of adversity have various effects on a child's development, biology, and mental/cognitive ability. Poverty can be a role in early childhood development on its own, partially because of the stress it causes in the family [5]. Furthermore, gender disparities in child abuse patterns can have long-term impacts on the diversity in profiles of populations presenting for treatment with co-occurring mental health and drug use problems [6].

The significance of early accurate diagnosis in guiding intervention options cannot be overstated. Children's behavioral measures are notoriously difficult [7]. Some children have strong negative reactions to abuse, while others might not show symptoms until later in life. Furthermore, some youngsters grow up to be mentally unwell, psychosocially maladjusted, tormented with chronic physical disorders, substance misuse, and, in some cases, criminals [8,9]. It is unknown what the etiological paths are from child maltreatment to negative or favorable results, and why not all maltreated children are equally impacted. The discovery of characteristics that account for heterogeneity in maltreated children's developmental outcomes is crucial for understanding theories of genesis in psychopathology and directing therapeutic intervention and prevention efforts for maltreated children. Beyond the singular focus on psychosocial determinants of adaptability among maltreated victims, there have been requests for many levels of viewpoint in the examination of the development of maltreated children. Recent work on child maltreatment, in particular, has begun to explore the need of including more varied biological measures into child maltreatment studies.

Better objective data is required to make educated decisions about foster care, adoption, psychological, medical, and other interventions. For example, in addition to the effect of pre-adoptive risk factor child abuse, the family setting in the adopted youth's new home may also influence psychosocial adaptations, both adversely and favorably. These parameters might be more successfully evaluated using biochemically based objective clinical pathology indicators. Objective metrics to separate these outcomes have received very little attention. There has recently been a surge in interest in determining the biological consequences of childhood abuse. Intervention tactics that are now focused mostly on behavioral observation can be improved and modified using objective data from biological testing.
