This study aimed at estimating the distributions of capsular polysaccharide (CPS) types and pilus profiles, and the rates of antimicrobial resistance among GBS strains isolated from colonized pregnant women and newborns in 2010 –2011 and 2017–2018 in St. Petersburg, Russia. A total of 261 GBS isolates have been investigated. Antibiotic susceptibility testing was performed using the disc-diffusion method. CPS types and pilus profiles were determined by using PCR. Over the 9-year period, the resistance of GBS to both ery thromycin and clindamycin has significantly increased, exceeding 30% in 2017–2018. The ...

z DP, Salgado-Bustamante M, López-Hernández Y Abstract Placenta‑derived exosomes play an important role in cellular communication both in the mother and the fetus. Their concentration and composition are altered in several pregnancy disorders, such as gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM). The isolation and characterization of placental exosomes from serum, plasma and tissues from patients with GDM have been previously described; however, to the best of our knowledge, to date, there is no study available on placental exosomes isolated from urine of patients with GDM. In the present study, placen...

Conclusions: Benefits and risks for both the patient and the offspring especially in the long term regarding marijuana use should be carefully weighed for each specific case. Standardized dosing and duration of treatment need to be determined. Recommendations should be made by physicians with expert training and after careful patient evaluation for fully informed patients, whose preference should be respected. Legislations should encourage more active basic, translational, and clinical studies. PMID: 32627638 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
