Publication date: Available online 17 October 2019Source: Canadian Journal of DiabetesAuthor(s): Alexandra Pouliot, Riham Elmahboubi, Catherine AdamAbstractBackgroundAt one Canadian university hospital, pregnant women have been routinely screened for gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) with a 75g OGTT. Diagnostic plasma glucose thresholds were: fasting: ≥5.3mmol/l, 1-hr: ≥10.6mmol/l or 2-hr: ≥9.0mmol/l. In 2015, diagnostic thresholds were reduced to those recommended by the International Diabetes in Pregnancy Study Group (IADPSG): fasting ≥ 5.1mmol/l, 1-hr ≥10.0mmol/l or 2-hr ≥8.5mmol/l. However, subseque...

Abstract During human pregnancy, Regulatory T cell (Treg) function is enhanced, and immune activation repressed allowing the growth and development of the feto-placental unit. Here, we have investigated whether human labour is associated with a reversal of the pregnancy-induced changes in the maternal immune system. We tested the hypothesis that human labour is associated with a decline in Treg function, specifically their ability to modulate toll-like receptor (TLR)-induced immune responses. We studied the changes in cell number, activation status and functional behaviour of peripheral blood, myometrial (myoMC) a...

ng Jae Kang One of the 100 worst invasive exotic species, Solenopsis invicta (red imported fire ant), has the possibility to induce an allergic reaction that may eventually cause death from its aggressive stinging. In 2017, S. invicta was found at a container yard in Gamman Port, Busan, South Korea for the first time. It may result in an infestation of fire ants in the Korean environment. After this incident, sensitive quarantine procedures are required to detect possible contamination of fire ants in imported containers. However, currently, fire ant identification relies on phenotypic characteristics. This requires hi...

AbstractIntroductionDespite the associations between delayed childbearing and poorer maternal and perinatal outcomes, little is known about these issues in regular exercisers and in women with healthy lifestyles. The aims of the present study were to: (a) compare lifestyle variables and exercise, pregnancy and birth outcomes in women ≥35 years and women

Despite a lower percentage of primary cesareans than non-Hispanic White and Black women, Hispanic women in the United States had the highest rate of repeat cesarean deliveries (RCD) in 2016; it is unclear if reasons for differences are due to known risk factors. Our study examined the association between ethnicity/race and RCD among women with one previous cesarean and whether demographic (age, marital status, education, language, and delivery year), anthropomorphic (height, prepregnancy body mass index), obstetrical/medical (parity, gestational age, infant birth weight, gestational diabetes, labor induction or augmentatio...

The last time I stuck a needle in my arm was three whole months before I conceived my son, and I’m grateful that he’s never experienced me in active addiction. I say three whole months as if it were a lifetime, but it really is to anyone in early recovery. I was fortunate, I stopped using heroin before I found out that I was pregnant. I had just turned 29 and was in a stable relationship with my now-husband. For many women, getting on methadone doesn’t happen until they find out they’re pregnant. Their options are to either keep using or get into treatment. I started taking methadone five months be...
