Exploring intimate partner violence before, during, and after pregnancy in Bangladesh - Islam MJ, Broidy L, Mazerolle P, Baird K, Mazumder N.
Intimate partner violence (IPV) against pregnant or postpartum women is known to have multiple detrimental effects on women and their children. Although results from past research suggest much continuity in trajectories of IPV, it is unclear whether pregna...
Conclusions Given high rates of positive Trichomonas tests and increased detection with nucleic acid amplification tests (NAATs), all pregnant women should be retested with NAATs approximately 3 weeks posttreatment. Further studies are needed to determine the most effective treatment of Trichomonas infection in pregnant women.
Conclusions Screening for and treatment of trichomoniasis in HIV-positive patients, and retesting and retreatment for trichomoniasis in the general population appear to be suboptimal. Continuing education for providers is needed for this common but “neglected” STI.
ConclusionsThe observed miscarriage rate was comparable to the background US population rate (15 –20%). Patients treated with insulin experienced a 23% incidence of severe hypoglycemia and lower birth weights were observed in the insulin-treated, GCK-affected neonates. These data support published guidelines of no treatment if the fetus is suspected to have inherited GCK-MODY and highlight th e importance of additional studies to determine optimal pregnancy management for GCK-MODY, particularly among unaffected fetuses.

The negatively charged sugar sialic acid (Sia) occupies the outermost position in the bulk of cell surface glycans. Lack of sialylated glycans due to genetic ablation of the Sia-activating enzyme CMP–sialic acid synthase (CMAS) resulted in embryonic lethality around day 9.5 post coitum (E9.5) in mice. Developmental failure was caused by complement activation on trophoblasts in Cmas–/– implants and was accompanied by infiltration of maternal neutrophils at the fetal-maternal interface, intrauterine growth restriction, impaired placental development, and a thickened Reichert’s membrane. This phenotype...
Crohn's disease and pregnancy can affect each other. However, most women who conceive while their Crohn's disease is in remission can have a normal pregnancy and healthy baby. Learn more here.
(MedPage Today) -- Pooled analysis suggests parity may not be protective for women under age 55
To protect a developing fetus from experimental drugs or treatments that might cause birth defects, pregnant women aren't included in many clinical trials. But that limits the safety evidence, too.(Image credit: Maria Fabrizio for NPR)
