Conclusion:C-section is not associated with increased risk for CDA or CD in the offspring. Objective: Cesarean section (C-section) is associated with various immune-mediated diseases in the offspring. We investigated the relationship between mode of delivery and celiac disease (CD) and CD autoimmunity (CDA) in a multinational birth cohort. Methods: From 2004 to 2010, infants from the general population who tested positive for HLA DR3-DQ2 or DR4-DQ8 were enrolled in The Environmental Determinants for Diabetes in the Young (TEDDY) study. Children were annually screened for transglutaminase autoantibodies, if positive,...

Authors: Ji H, Xu L, Wang Z, Fan X, Wu L Abstract Glyphosate is the active ingredient in numerous herbicide formulations. The role of glyphosate in neurotoxicity has been reported in human and animal models. However, the detailed mechanism of the role of glyphosate in neuronal development remains unknown. Recently, several studies have reported evidence linking neurodevelopmental disorders (NDDs) with gestational glyphosate exposure. The current group previously identified microRNAs (miRNAs) that are associated with the etiology of NDDs, but their expression levels in the developing brain following glyphosate expos...

We examined the relationship between fetal heart rate (FHR) before miscarriage in the early first trimester and fetal karyotype, analyzing 223 pregnant women with recurrent pregnancy loss. Among the pregnancies, 110 resulted in live births regarded as normal karyotype (the Norm-group). The other 113 pregnancies ended in miscarriage, and we categorized them into groups based on fetal karyotype, determined by chorionic villus sampling: the Misc-NK (normal karyotype) group, n=35 euploid cases; the Misc-CA1 (chromosomal abnormality) group, n=18 cases of aneuploidy with trisomies 13/18/21, Turner's syndrome, or Klinefelter's sy...

This article discusses the evidence based recommended methods of pregnancy dating and biometric measurements. We address some confusing terms such as fetal growth ‘standards’ and fetal growth ‘references’ along with explaining the differences between prescriptive and descriptive charts and between growth charts, based on estimated fetal weight vs those based on birth weight. Opinions remain divided on which charts are best to use, however, since the publication of the Intergrowth 21st study, we are now in a position to be able to assess growth and development in an internationally standardized fashi...

David Fetal growth restriction (FGR) and related placental pathologies such as pre-eclampsia and stillbirth arise in early pregnancy when inadequate remodelling of maternal spiral arteries leads to persistent high-resistance low-flow uteroplacental circulation. Current interventions concentrate on targeting the placental ischaemia, re-perfusion injury and oxidative stress associated with an imbalance in angiogenic/anti-angiogenic factors. Recent meta-analyses confi...

Publication date: Available online 8 February 2018 Source:Best Practice & Research Clinical Obstetrics & Gynaecology Author(s): John Jarrell Historically, the evolutionary origins of menstruation have been based on two theories: the ability to eliminate infectious agents carried to the uterus with spermatozoa and the comparative conservation of energy with menstruation compared to its absence. In the menstruating species, more recent theories have identified spontaneous decidualization as the key adaptive mechanism. Spontaneous decidualization is seen as a mechanism to provide the mother with protection from the i...

Jeremy Hunt, the U.K.’s health &social care secretary, this week ordered a National Health System safety audit of the use of plastic mesh implants to treat vaginal prolapse and female urinary incontinence. Hunt said the review of vaginal mesh and two other products – the Primodos hormone-based pregnancy test and the anti-epilepsy drugsodium valproate – were prompted by “serious concerns … raised by patients and their families.” Some of those complaints about vaginal mesh included calls for the products to be banned in the U.K. The health secretary said he asked NHS chief medical off...

Authors: Abstract Individual prenatal care is intended to prevent poor perinatal outcomes and provide education to women throughout pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period through a series of one-on-one encounters between a woman and her obstetrician or other obstetric care provider. Concerns regarding increasing health care costs, health care provider availability, dissatisfaction with wait times, and the minimal opportunity for education and support associated with the individual care model have given rise to interest in alternative models of prenatal care. One alternative model, group prenatal care, m...
