Equashield seeks to automate hazardous drug handling: a Drug Delivery Business News podcast

Equashield’s Jason Dutcher chats with Drug Delivery Business Newseditor Sarah Faulkner about the company’s closed system transfer device and its latest move to automate hazardous drug compounding.  Healthcare workers are often tasked with handling hazardous drugs, which give off harmful vapors. Exposure to these drugs has been linked to severe health risks, including infertility, miscarriage and cancer. To guard workers against exposure to toxic compounds, Equashield has developed a streamlined closed system transfer device for the handling of hazardous drugs. Get the full story at our sister site, Drug Delivery Business News. The post Equashield seeks to automate hazardous drug handling: a Drug Delivery Business News podcast appeared first on MassDevice.

AbstractAdult survivors of childhood cancers are more prone to developing poor reproductive and obstetrical outcomes than their siblings and the general population as a result of previous exposure to chemotherapy and radiation during childhood. Chemotherapy drugs exert cytotoxic effects systemically and therefore can damage the ovaries, leading to infertility, premature ovarian failure, and, to a lesser extent, spontaneous abortions. They have very limited or no deleterious effects on the uterus that can be recognized clinically. By contrast, radiation is detrimental to both the ovaries and the uterus, thereby causing a gr...

Conclusions Except for the risk of premature ovarian failure, a rare adverse effect of combined treatments, both single-agent and multiagent chemotherapy can be safely administered to patients with a desire for childbearing. High-risk patients have worse reproductive outcomes because they undergo hysterectomy more frequently than low-risk patients.

ConclusionsAMH should replace FSH in the evaluation of gonadal reserve in pre-menopausal thyroid cancer women. At present, age is the only predictor of AMH levels. About one out of two women with a history of thyroid cancer suffers from menstrual dysregulation, but infertility must be considered a low risk.

AbstractThere is substantial evidence that paternal obesity is associated not only with an increased incidence of infertility, but also with an increased risk of metabolic disturbance in adult offspring. Apparently, several mechanisms may contribute to the sperm quality alterations associated with paternal obesity, such as physiological/hormonal alterations, oxidative stress, and epigenetic alterations. Along these lines, modifications of hormonal profiles namely reduced androgen levels and elevated estrogen levels, were found associated with lower sperm concentration and seminal volume. Additionally, oxidative stress in t...

CONCLUSIONS: Inositol appears to regulate menstrual cycles, improve ovulation and induce metabolic changes in PCOS, however evidence is lacking for pregnancy, miscarriage or live birth. Further well-designed multicenter trial to address this issue to provide robust evidence of benefit is warranted. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

By Katrina Mark, MD 1. Fertility naturally declines as we age That alone doesn’t mean you should start to worry. The general advice I give a woman is if she has been trying to become pregnant for a full year with no luck, she might consider a fertility evaluation. For a woman over age 35, she might consider it after six months. If a woman is younger and has irregular periods, it’s likely she isn’t regularly ovulating, so she might want to be evaluated sooner. 2. Sometimes there’s a reason for infertility – and sometimes, there’s not There are some things we know cause infertility. About...

Publication date: Available online 28 April 2017 Source:Reproductive Toxicology Author(s): Taher Al Jishi, Consolato Sergi Diethylstilbestrol (DES) was an orally active estrogen prescribed to the pregnant women to prevent miscarriages. DES is known as a ‘biological time bomb’ and long-term effects of DES have been recorded in the mothers exposed to DES and their offspring (DES-daughters and DES-sons). Adverse pregnancy outcomes, infertility, cancer, and early menopause have been discovered in women exposed to DES, and some events occur in their offspring and subsequent generations. An increased risk of breast ...
