A new clinic in New York City is helping moms prioritize their mental health with its focus on diagnosing and treating women for postpartum depression and other postpartum disorders.

For mothers with moderate or severe depression, the Motherhood Center offers a day program that lasts five hours a day (Monday through Friday) for about two to three weeks. The program includes individual and group therapy sessions as well as mother-infant therapy, a meditation room, breathing exercises and medication management as needed. Billy Ingram, cofounder and CEO of the Motherhood Center, told HuffPost that about eight patients have graduated from the program, and 10 mo...

AbstractLow molecular weight heparins (LMWHs) are considered the standard of care for the treatment of venous thromboembolism (VTE) associated with cancer. We conducted a meta-analysis to evaluate the safety and efficacy of direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) in patients with cancer. We systematically searched Medline for potential randomized-control clinical trials (RCTs) and post-hoc analyses. For each study, data on recurrent VTE, major or clinically relevant non-major bleeding (CRNMB), and major bleeding (MB) were extracted. Initially, a total of 1395 citations were identified. Eight studies met our eligibility criteria...

Neurotrophins such as nerve growth factor (NGF) have long been identified as drivers of neurogenesis during development and regeneration, but intriguingly they were also known to be expressed in human tumors where they can stimulate cancer cell growth. Recent findings have un...

Diabetes leads to multiorgan complications that collectively reduce life expectancy. Hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) are nested within bone marrow (BM) niches whence they can be mobilized to the peripheral circulation. Clinically, this is done for HSC collection and autologous or allogenic transplantation. A great amount of data from basic and clinical studies support that di...
