The role of social support in family socio-economic disparities in depressive symptoms during early pregnancy: Evidence from a Chinese birth cohort

Antenatal depression is becoming one of the most common complications during pregnancy, affecting up to 10% of pregnant women (Vigod  et al., 2016). Higher rates were reported in Chinese pregnant women (Lau et al., 2011; Li et al., 2012a). Depression during pregnancy may lead to adverse maternal outcomes, such as gestational diabetes mellitus, hypertension, preeclampsia (Becker et al., 2016), and postpartum depression(Silva  et al., 2012), and subsequent adverse birth and postnatal outcomes, including low birth weight (Grigoriadis et al., 2013; Grote et al., 2010), premature birth (Grigoriadis et al., 2013; Grote et al., 2010), fetal growth restriction (Grote et al., 2010), and a higher risk of admission to a n eonatal intensive care unit (Grigoriadis et al., 2013).

CONCLUSIONS: Gaps in memory and various memory types were common after ICU admission, whose prevalence waned over time. Compared with nightmares and fearful memories, gaps in memories were most strongly associated with poor mental health and quality of life. Identifying patients with gaps in memories might be an objective way of planning interventions to improve their long-term outcomes.

OBJECTIVES: To determine the diagnostic and clinical utility of trio-rapid genome sequencing in critically ill infants. DESIGN: In this prospective study, samples from critically ill infants were analyzed using both proband-only clinical exome sequencing and trio-rapid genome sequencing (proband and biological parents). The study occurred between April 2019 and December 2019. SETTING: Thirteen member hospitals of the China Neonatal Genomes Project spanning 10 provinces were involved. PARTICIPANTS: Critically ill infants (n = 202), from birth up until 13 months of life were enrolled based on eligibi...

AbstractSeries of grafting functionalization on silica microspheres were achieved to mono and bi-functionalized polymers for uranium recovery. Bi-functionalization sorbent is the most effective through improving the sorption capacity and other physico-chemical properties. Completed sorption time reached within 25  min for PAO-MAc/SiO2 at pH 4 with loading capacity 0.98  mmol U g−1, while the PFORE and Langmuir fitting the kinetics and isotherm plateaus respectively with completely desorption through 15  min using 0.5 M HCl. The sorbent shows high stability in sorption and desorption through minimu...
