Carignan et al. have noted an error in Figure 2 of their paper, “Urinary Concentrations of Organophosphate Flame Retardant Metabolites and Pregnancy Outcomes among Women Undergoing in Vitro Fertilization.” The correct figure is included in this erratum and was part of the original submission, peer review, and accepted article. The error occurred when the authors responded to a proof request for a formatting edit, and a mistake was made in recreating the bottom row of the figure. The authors regret the error. Figure 2.

How bad of an idea is it to be pregnant with adequate lead coverage during early months of pregnancy? I had a fellow resident who was pregnant who changed her rotations around to avoid any exposure, however it's my understanding that overall the exposure with adequate coverage is ultimately fine. I know most of you are men - not sure if there are any female pain docs who could chime in? Sigh.

ConclusionThree unhealthy TCM patterns during the preconception period might be risk factors for low fecundity or poor pregnancy outcomes. The TCM preconception pattern identification may provide a convenient and effective way to screen for potential pregnancy risks beyond the NFPC. Further, appropriate interventions based on the TCM preconception health patterns are needed to improve quality in women’s fecundability and birth outcomes.

We describe recent female sterilization and reversible prescription contraceptive method use by presence of CHD and CHD severity in 2014.MethodsUsing IBM MarketScan Commercial Databases, we included women aged 15–44 years with prescription drug coverage in 2014 who were enrolled ≥11 months annually in employer-sponsored health plans between 2011–2014. CHD, CHD severity, contraceptive methods, and obstetric-gynecology and cardiology provider encounters were identified using billing codes. We used log-binomial regression to calculate adjusted prevalence ratios (aPRs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs...

AbstractWhile a number of studies have reported an association between apelin-13 and ischemic stroke, few have verified its clinical effect. We investigated the prognostic value of serum apelin-13 levels in patients with acute ischemic stroke (AIS). We prospectively recruited 244 AIS patients within 24  h after stroke onset, and 167 healthy controls. We assessed the serum apelin-13 levels using ELISA, and the severity of AIS using the National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale (NIHSS). The primary outcomes included death or major disability (modified Rankin Scale score, 3–6) and major disabilit y (modified Ranki...

Conclusion: MMP-3 rs35068180 polymorphism may modulate RPL risk in Iranian women. There is no evidence to suggest that MMP-2 (rs243865, rs2285053) and MMP 9 (rs3918242, rs17576) polymorphisms are associated with RPL risk. PMID: 31955640 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Nakamura K, Sugai A, Saji E, Kasuga K, Onodera O Abstract Myositis generally affects the proximal muscles. However, we herein report a case of a 48-year-old woman with intractable myositis affecting the intrinsic muscles of the hands. Her myositis, which developed in childhood, was refractory to treatment with steroids and several immunosuppressants, causing walking disability. After experiencing pain and swelling in the hands for six months, she was diagnosed with myositis of the intrinsic muscles of the hands and tested positive for the anti-signal recognition particle antibody. Intravenous immunoglobuli...

BOSTON (CBS/CNN) – A new Chinese coronavirus, a cousin of the SARS virus, has infected more than 200 people since the outbreak began in Wuhan, China, in December. Boston’s Logan Airport is not currently screening passengers for the illness, a spokesman for Customs and Border Protection told WBZ-TV. That’s because there are no direct flights to Boston from that region. Additional health screening for coronavirus is in place at JFK Airport in New York, San Francisco International Airport and Los Angeles International Airport. The agency said the CDC has determined that coronavirus presents a low risk to the...
