Summary We undertook an exclusive meta‐analysis of cohort studies investigating the possible link between prenatal SSRI exposure and autism spectrum disorders (ASD) in children to further investigate our previous suggestion of confounding by indication. The point estimates regarding the following cohorts were extracted and pooled: (1) Pregnant women who discontinued SSRI until 3 months before pregnancy. (2) Pregnant women who were exposed to SSRI during pregnancy. (3) Pregnant women with maternal psychiatric disorder but no exposure to SSRI during pregnancy. Although the pooled point estimate of the first cohort showed a...

Abstract The late neurologist and author, Oliver Sacks, published an insightful 1986 review of Marjorie Wallace's book, The Silent Twins, in the New York Times. Taking exception to his assertion about Sir Francis Galton, I wrote a letter to the Times' editor. The letter was unpublished, but it brought a wonderful response from Sacks himself that is reproduced and examined. Next, brief reviews of twin research concerning the vanishing twin syndrome (VTS), discordant sex in a monozygotic (MZ) twin pair, and multiple pregnancy outcomes from assisted reproductive technology (ART) are presented. This section is followe...

CONCLUSIONS: On the one hand, we could confirm the safety profile of the molecule also at this high dosage, free from any side effects; on the other hand, our experience highlighted the faster glucose-lowering effect due to a higher dose of Myo-Ins. This outcome may open a new scenario in the treatment of GDM. PMID: 28724184 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSIONS: MYO and MET, associated with life-style, had both significant beneficial effects on serum progesterone and prolactin levels, menstrual cycle disorders and pregnancy rates in patients without severe carbohydrate metabolism malfunctions. Nevertheless, no significant differences were found between the MET and the MYO groups. Significant results in hormone levels and symptoms were reached with the combination of both treatments, whereas fasting serum insulin levels were slightly improved. Furthermore, the body mass index (BMI) was moderately but not significantly higher in MET and MET+MYO group. PMID: 28724173...

The objective of our study was to review available conservative surgeries for the treatment of adenomyosis, their complications, and the rates of success and recurrence. In this systematic review, we evaluated 27 studies; 10 prospective and 17 retrospective studies including a total of 1398 patients. The results showed that excision of adenomyosis is effective for symptom-control such as menorrhagia and dysmenorrhea, and most probably for adenomyosis-related infertility. For preserving fertility and relieving symptoms, medical treatment is usually the first choice; whereas excisional surgery could be performed for refracto...
