Publication date: Available online 15 July 2019Source: Molecular and Cellular ProbesAuthor(s): Tonghua Wu, Yuanchang Zhu, Ling Hong, Qi Lin, Chunmei Chen, Jing Yang, Lijun Ye, Wensi Huang, Yong ZengAbstractThe vast majority of first-trimester pregnancy losses are the consequence of numerical aberrations in fetal chromosomes, which may involve nearly all chromosomes. Although commercial probes for all chromosomes are available for multiplex ligation-dependent probe amplification (MLPA) and fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) analyses, their use has rarely been reported for screening all 24 chromosomes for early fetal ...

In this study, we showed that a serum lipoprotein(a) level>40.5 mg/dL in a mildly preeclamptic patient predicted the development of severe preeclampsia later on in the pregnancy, whereas a serum lipoprotein(a) level>52.5 mg/dL was a marker of severity with high sensitivity and specificity. What the implications are of these findings for clinical practice and/or further research? Our results suggest that blood lipids, and especially lipoprotein(a), are involved in the pathogenesis of preeclampsia. The lipoprotein(a) level correlates with the severity of the disease. Hence, lipoprotein(a) could be used as...

This study was aimed to investigate the consumption of folic acid to prevent deficiency anaemia based on the theory of planned behaviour on pregnant women in Neyshabur, Iran. This study included 180 pregnant women, who were gathered from 12 healthcare centres in the city of Neyshabur, Iran in 2018. Using a questionnaire and blood lab exam (folat) were measured and analysed. The average rates of knowledge, attitude, perceived behavioural control, intention, behaviour in the education group were meaningfully increased (p value  .05). Also, no statistically meaningful difference was obtained in subjective norm b...

Authors: Bahadırlı A, Sönmez MB, Memiş ÇÖ, Bahadırlı NB, Memiş SD, Dogan B, Sevincok L Abstract ABSRACT We aimed to investigate the relationship between affective temperaments and the severity of nausea and vomiting symptoms in early pregnancy (NVP). The pregnant women who did (n = 187) or did not report (n = 71) any nausea and vomiting at three consecutive assessments with the Pregnancy-Unique Quantification of Emesis Scoring Index (PUQE) (n = 71) were examined. Affective temperamental traits were assessed by Temperament Evaluation of Memphis, Pisa, ...

Our study highlights the key drivers of infection and shedding dynamics of squirrelpox virus (SQPV) in its reservoir grey squirrel (Sciurus carolinensis) population. To clarify SQPV dynamics in this popul...

This article evaluates the textual evidence for bubonic plague in classical antiquity from medical sources and discusses methodologies for "retrospective diagnosis" in light of new developments in microbiology. A close study of Greek medical texts suggests that bubonic plague was unfamiliar to medical writers until sometime before the second century AD, when sources cited by Rufus of Ephesus report a disease that resembles bubonic plague. Rufus of Ephesus describes this disease around AD 100, and Aretaeus (fl. ca. AD 50 or 150) appears to describe the same disease as well. Intriguingly, the disease then disappear...
