New National License Agreement Provides Brazil with Unlimited Access to the Cochrane Library

John Wiley and Sons Inc. (NYSE:JW-A) (NYSE:JW-B), today announced a new license agreement with the country of Brazil that provides unlimited access to the Cochrane Library. From academics to clinicians to patients, the two-year agreement provides one-click access to 7,000 published systematic reviews in healthcare interventions to more than 207 million Brazilians.The access was possible due to the contract signed by the Brazilian Federal Agency for Support and Evaluation of Graduate Education (CAPES in Portuguese) and Wiley. CAPES offers a tool for accessing and sharing scientific information called the Portal de Peri ódicos—a virtual library where the Cochrane Library is available.Geraldo Nunes Sobrinho, Director of Programs and Scholarships for CAPES welcomed the move: “The national license in Brazil will enhance the quality of evidence used in healthcare interventions country-wide. By investing in the Cochrane Library for our country, we are considering future health of our population and ensuring the best evidence is available to all.”Editor-in-Chief of the Cochrane Library, Dr. David Tovey said of the agreement, “We are delighted that citizens of Brazil now have unlimited access to the Cochrane Library to help inform their health decisions.”   Cochrane is a global independent network of researchers, professionals, patients, careers, and people interested in health. The organization gathers and summarizes the best evidence fr...

Authors: Dome P, Faludi G Abstract Main indications of antidepressants (ADs) as major depressive disorder (MDD) and different kinds of anxiety disorders are quite prevalent during pregnancy and the postpartum period. Due to the possible hazards of in utero and breast milk exposition of ADs, both psychiatrists and mothers frequently have concerns about the use of ADs during the periods of pregnancy and breastfeeding. However, we should also bear in mind that affective disorders left untreated during these periods are also associated with health risks for the mother and the baby as well. Accordingly, the treatment of...

Series Type : Expression profiling by high throughput sequencingOrganism : Mus musculusPurpose: No gene expression profiles for the placenta in LPS-induced preterm labor mouse model have been published. The goal of this study was to obtain a comprehensive catalog of differentially expressed genes (DEGs) in the placenta using RNA-seq.Methods: Preterm labor mouse model (P) and control pregnancy group (C) were gained using a protocol from R. Migale, et al., BMC MED 14 (2016):86. Briefly, on day 15.5 of gestation, an abdominal minilaparotomy was performed. The upper right uterine horn between the first and second sacs received...

Abstract Chronic kidney disease affects approximately 10% of the world's adult population: it is within the top 20 causes of death worldwide, and its impact on patients and their families can be devastating. World Kidney Day and International Women's Day in 2018 coincide, thus offering an opportunity to reflect on the importance of women's health and specifically women's kidney health on the community and the next generations, as well as to strive to be more curious about the unique aspects of kidney disease in women so that we may apply those learnings more broadly. Girls and women, who make up approximately 50% ...

Abstract The aim of this study was to investigate the reproductive, biochemical, and hematological outcomes of pregnant rats exposed to protein restriction. Wistar rat dams were fed a control normal-protein (NP, 17% protein, n=8) or a low-protein (LP, 8% protein, n=14) diet from the 1st to the 20th day of pregnancy. On the 20th day, the clinical signs of toxicity were evaluated. The pregnant rats were then anesthetized and blood samples were collected for biochemical-hematological analyses, and laparotomy was performed to evaluate reproductive parameters. No sign of toxicity, or differences (P>0.05) in body wei...

Conclusion Neonatal TSH levels are dynamic and may be affected by several maternal and neonatal factors including maternal age, TSH, FT4, and birth weight and height. Identification of these confounders is useful for assessing the status of neonatal thyroid development. Strengths and limitations of this study (1) Iodine deficiency disorder has generally been eliminated, so the median urinary iodine concentration of pregnancy is higher than 150 μg/L even in mildly or moderately iodine deficient areas. (2) Unlike many other studies, which did not consider the complexity of factors or examined only one or two variables, ...

Zika virus (ZIKV) is a mosquito-borne flavivirus, which caused an unprecedented outbreak on islands in the Pacific region in 2013/14 and subsequently in the Americas in 2015 [1]. ZIKV was first isolated in Uganda in 1947 but largely remained obscured in tropical Africa and parts of Asia. The majority of human infections remain asymptomatic but recent evidence showed that ZIKV infection can lead to congenital birth defects and severe neurological disorders [2]. Although ZIKV has been known for decades there is little contemporary data on the prevalence of ZIKV in Africa.

ConclusionsThese findings suggest that young girls with galactosemia maintain follicles in early childhood and fertility cryopreservation may be considered an option in this patient group. The pathophysiology of galactosemia leading to an accelerated follicle loss is unknown and it is currently unknown to what extent transplanted ovarian tissue can sustain fertility in adult life.

Ananth Karumanchi There is an urgent need for biomarkers that can help stratify women with suspected preeclampsia (PE) for the subsequent appearance of PE with severe features (sPE), to improve risk assessment and direct monitoring related to complications of sPE. Elevated levels of circulating anti-angiogenic factors like soluble fms-like tryrosine kinase 1 (sFlt1) and decreased free levels of pro-angiogenic factors such as placental growth factor (PlGF)...
