Authors: Lamy S, Houivet E, Benichou J, Marret S, Thibaut F, Perinatal network of Upper-Normandy Abstract Many pregnant women, in the world, drink caffeine-containing beverages. Maternal caffeine consumption during pregnancy may have adverse effects on foetus but results are conflicting. Our goals were to estimate the prevalence of caffeine use in a cohort of French pregnant women using maternal self-reports and to evaluate the association between caffeine consumption during pregnancy and delivery and newborn characteristics. All pregnant women who gave birth in a large French urban area during a limited period of ...

Authors: Gaudiano BA, Davis CH, Miller IW, Uebelacker L Abstract A common setting where depression is identified and treated is in primary care, where there is a need for low-intensity and cost-effective interventions to be used as part of a stepped-care model. The current study involved a pilot, parallel-group, randomized controlled trial of a video self-help intervention for primary care patients based on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). The intervention, called LifeStories, consisted of storytelling vignettes of patients describing their use of ACT-consistent coping skills for depression. Primary care pa...

AbstractThree BODIPY ‐peptide conjugates designed to target the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) at the extracellular domain were synthesized and their specificity for binding to EGFR was investigated. Peptide sequences containing seven amino acids, GLARLLT (2) and KLARLLT (3), and 13 amino acids, GYHWYGYTPQNVI (4), were conjugated to carboxyl BODIPY dye (1) by amide bond formation in up to 73% yields. The BODIPY ‐peptide conjugates and their “parent” peptides were determined to bind to EGFR experimentally using SPR analysis, and were further investigated using computational methods (AUTODOCK). Resul...

OBJECTIVE: To compare the impact of aquatic exercise (AE) and kinesio taping (KT) on the pain intensity and functional incapacity in women with chronic nonspecific LBP. DESIGN: Randomized controlled trial. SETTING: Outpatient clinic. PARTICIPANTS: Thirty-six women with chronic nonspecific LBP (mean [SD]: age = 50.69 [4.187] y) participated. INTERVENTIONS: Participants randomly a...
