Instead, responsible inclusion of pregnant women requires careful design and planning of research for pregnant women specifically....

AbstractThe aim of this study was to determine the effect of breeding method and season on pregnancy rate and cumulative embryonic and fetal losses in Nili-Ravi buffalo. Estrus detection was performed twice a day by teaser buffalo bull for 1  hour each. A 2 × 2 factorial design was used to address the breeding method and season. Buffaloes (n = 130) exhibiting estrus were randomly assigned to be bred either in peak breeding season (PBS;n = 80) or low breeding season (LBS;n = 50). Within each season, buffaloes were divided to receive either natural service (N...

Here’s what you need to know: Fraternal Twins: When a mother releases 2 separate eggs and both fertilized, this results in fraternal twins which do not share the same DNA.
