Implementation of mandatory vaccinations against diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis in preterm infants as part of the Polish Immunization Programme

Conclusions: 1. Even during prolonged hospitalization at a neonatal intensive care unit, immunization with the DTPa vaccine should be performed in addition to vaccination against tuberculosis and HBV. 2. DTPa-IPV-Hib-HBV hexavalent vaccines provide an optimal solution for the implementation of immunization schedules, especially in preterm infants and – even more so – preterm infants with extremely low birth weight. 3. Results from the monitoring of episodes of apnea, bradycardia and saturation levels before and after vaccination at the neonatal ward provide valuable information to the physician that continues vaccination as part of outpatient care.

Abstract: The epidemiological data on gingivitis and periodontitis in Latin America are scarce, as the majority of the Latin American studies have analyzed probing depth instead of clinical attachment loss.

In general, data have revealed that the prevalence of periodontal disease is higher in Latin Americans than in populations in the USA or Europe. Regarding its relations with other diseases and conditions, some Lati...

Abstract: Gingivitis and periodontitis are associated with a negative impact on Oral Health Related Quality of Life (OHRQoL), exerting a significant influence on aspects related to the patients' function and esthetics.

CONCLUSIONSPregnancy resource centers play a role in meeting the acute material and social needs of low ‐income pregnant women. However, the constraints on the resources the centers offer mean that this support cannot be part of a reliable system of care. Advocates and policymakers should take a nuanced approach to regulating these centers and consider the reasons women visit them, especially low‐ income women.
