Egg-freezing regrets: Half of women who undergo the procedure have some remorse

When 26-year-old Rita Ora announced recently that she had frozen her eggs, she joined a long list of celebrities touting the procedure. “I wanted to be safe,” the singer-actress said. "Bachelorette" star Kaitlyn Bristowe called egg freezing a “backup plan.” Comedian Whitney Cummings tweeted that “freezing my eggs is going great.” And actress Olivia Munn […]Related:Acupuncture is a popular offering at fertility clinics, but it doesn’t improve fertility, study saysMen’s depression may lower chances for pregnancy in couples, NIH study suggestsCDC comes close to an all-clear on romaine lettuce as E. coli outbreak nears historic level

ConclusionsAcademic psychiatry has been criticized for its overreliance on secondary care settings in undergraduate clinical teaching. Our findings suggest that supervised clinical placements in primary care are feasible and provide added educational value as a routine component of the undergraduate psychiatry clinical clerkship.

About 12% of adolescents who had suicidal thoughts or engaged in self-harm at age 16 went on to attempt suicide by age 21, but the risk factors for transition differed from established thinking on the subject, according to a large, longitudinalstudy of adolescents inLancet Psychiatry.“Existing research suggests that many well-established risk factors for suicide (such as depression, hopelessness, and impulsivity) do not predict suicide attempts among adolescents who have suicidal thoughts or engage in nonsuicidal self-harm,” wrote Becky Mars, Ph.D., a research fellow in epid emiology in the Department of Popula...

Abstract This work describes the engineering of a feasible, sensitive, and specific colorimetric assay for the detection of Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) extracellular protease production, using a tailored agar-based readout platform. Firstly, S. aureus protease production was evaluated using different culture media. Maximum proteolytic activity was achieved after 24 h of incubation in brain heart infusion (BHI) broth at 37 °C, as confirmed using azo-casein and Sigma's non-specific protease activity assays. Secondly, to enhance proteolysis detection, novel agar-based platform readouts for S. aureus pro...

Abstract This work proposes a quenched photoelectrochemical sensing method for highly selective and sensitive detection of protein via Energy Transfer (ET) effect between the AuNPs and CdS:Mn quantum dots. This detection was performed on a sandwich-type aptamer sensing interface. Chitosan modified CdS:Mn/TiO2/ITO electrode was used to immobilize capture DNA (S1) via -CONH- bond. In the presence of target protein, AuNPs labeled DNA (AuNPs-S2) was further bonded to the protein to fabricate sandwich sensing platform, which forced the AuNPs away from the electrode surface. In this state, the photocurrent was greatly d...

Conclusion The results obtained from this research shows, in general, the fragility in the social and political infrastructure necessary to improve the living conditions of populations, particularly those that depend on family agriculture in drought prone areas. The conditions of social, economic and environmental vulnerabilities presented in the region can be amplified by the drought process, and can aggravate the impacts resulting drought events, thus disadvantaging the population of this region, as shown in the Fig. 1. The general perception of the interviewees of the health sector shows an agreement with what is found...

Women having trouble getting pregnant sometimes try yoga, meditation or mindfulness, and some research suggests that psychological stress may affect infertility. But what about men: Does their mental state affect a couple's ability to conceive? The latest research on this subject was published Thursday in the journal Fertility and Sterility and suggests that a link between mental health […]Related:CDC comes close to an all-clear on romaine lettuce as E. coli outbreak nears historic levelSurrogate mothers ask Supreme Court to stop ‘exploitation’ of women and babiesMore men with low-risk pro...
