A woman with a transplanted uterus just gave birth — a first for the U.S.

For women with uterine factor infertility who want to be mothers, the calculus has always been heartbreakingly simple: No uterus means no pregnancy. The equation changed drastically in 2014, when Swedish doctors delivered a healthy 3.9-pound baby that was the result of a successful uterus transplant. Now, doctors at Baylor University say a woman born […]Related:A model tattooed her eyeball purple. She now could lose her eye.A man collapsed with ‘Do Not Resuscitate’ tattooed on his chest.

ConclusionsThe experimental results from the pharmacological research enable the validation of their traditional uses in several of the groups of diseases in the countries of origin and reveal these plants to be a valuable source for therapeutic molecules. However, more toxicity assays and clinical trials would be necessary to establish optimal and safe doses of consumption on the application of these medicinal plants.Graphical abstract

This study showed that decidualized endometrial stromal cells own a lower stiffness and roughness compare to the ESCs. The acquisition of these properties could be important for the implantation stage during pregnancy, letting decidual ESCs act as an invasion-limiting barrier to contain the advance of the blastocyst and being a supportive structures that sustain the blastocyst avoiding miscarriages.

Publication date: Available online 24 March 2018Source: Advances in Space ResearchAuthor(s): Salvatore Sarno, Maria Daniela Graziano, Giancarmine Fasano, Marco D'ErricoAbstractThis paper presents an original approach for a radar-based distributed system. The novel mission concept foresees a formation of very low altitude parasitic small satellites capturing the signal transmitted by existing LEO SARs in C and X bands. Both orbital analysis and radar performance estimation are performed. In order to increase the number of potential illuminators and achieve limited lifetimes, the receiver is supposed to be in a very LEO (alt...

Bayer announced Friday that it will no longer sell a controversial, permanent form of birth control that thousands of women say led to serious complications. Essure, a non-surgical sterilization device that is inserted into the fallopian tubes and prevents pregnancy by producing scar tissue that blocks sperm from fertilizing eggs, will no longer be available in the U.S. after December 31, 2018, Bayer announced in a statement. “This decision is based on a decline in U.S. sales of Essure in recent years and the conclusion that the Essure business is no longer sustainable,” the statement reads. While Bayer mainta...

The FDA said today that Bayer will no longer sell or distribute its Essure permanent birth control device in the US, effective December 31. FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb said the action follows a “series of earlier actions that the FDA took to address the reports of serious adverse events associated with its use,” according to an FDA release. “For women who have received an Essure implant, the postmarket safety of Essure will continue to be a top priority for the FDA. We expect Bayer to meet its postmarket obligations concerning this device,” Gottlieb said in a prepared statement. In April, the fe...

Sánchez, Gabriela V. LevyAbstractTbRRM1, an SR-related protein, is involved in transcriptional and post-transcriptional gene expression regulation in procyclic T. brucei. In previous work, we found that TbRRM1 is essential and its depletion leads to cell cycle impairment, aberrant phenotypes and cell loss by apoptotic-like death. Here, we report the findings obtained after TbRRM1 knockdown in bloodstream parasites...
