Women work the most injury-inducing jobs

Here's a headline that might surprise: Working in state-run nursing and residential care facilities was riskier than being a police officer or a firefighter in 2016. Since 2012 nurses and health aides in state-run residential care and nursing settings have accounted for the highest rates of injury and illnesses tracked by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. The industry reported 164,300 employee injuries and illnesses in 2016, and racked up an incident rate t hat was roughly 30 percent higher than…

One quarter to one third of women experience induction of labour. Outpatient induction of labour may be safe and effective but women ’s views of this setting and of different methods of induction are sparse.

Abstract Malaria in pregnancy (MiP) induces intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) and preterm labour (PTL). However, its effects on yolk sac morphology and function are largely unexplored. We hypothesized that MiP modifies yolk sac morphology and efflux transport potential by modulating ABC efflux transporters. C57BL/6 mice injected with Plasmodium berghei ANKA (5 × 105 infected erythrocytes) at gestational day (GD) 13.5 were subjected to yolk sac membrane harvesting at GD 18.5 for histology, qPCR and immunohistochemistry. MiP did not alter the volumetric proportion of the yolk sac's histological ...

In this study, we applied this assay to the quantification of both replicative and induced senescent primary cells. Using this assay, we were able to quantify the activity level of SA β-galactosidase, the expression level of p16INK4a and γH2AX in these cell populations. Our results show this flow cytometric approach to be sensitive, robust, and consistent in discriminating senescent cells in different cell senescence models. A strong positive correlation between these commonly- used senescence markers was demonstrated. The method described in this paper can easily be scaled up to accommodate high-throughput scre...

DiscussionDespite the call to increase the use of shared decision ‐making in perinatal care, there are few studies that have examined the effects of a shared decision‐making support strategy. Further studies that include antepartum and intrapartum settings, which include common perinatal decisions such as induction of labor, are needed. In addition, clear guid ance and strategies for successfully integrating shared decision‐making and practice recommendations would help women and health care providers navigate these complex decisions.

Abstract OBJECTIVE: To assess whether outpatient cervical ripening with a transcervical Foley catheter in nulliparous women undergoing elective labor induction shortens the time from admission to delivery. METHODS: We performed a randomized controlled trial of patients with singleton pregnancies undergoing elective labor induction at 39 weeks of gestation or more with a modified Bishop score less than 5. Women were randomized 1:1 to outpatient or inpatient transcervical Foley. In the outpatient group, the Foley was inserted the day before admission for scheduled induction; insertion was performed at scheduled...

AbstractObjectivesSmall-for-gestational-age (SGA) pregnancy is a condition often leading to labor induction due to concerns about the possibility of an increased risk for fetal morbidity and mortality. In this retrospective cohort study, we try to evaluate the safety of oral misoprostol for labor induction in near-term and term pregnancies in SGA fetuses compared to dinoprostone as well as to planned primary cesarean section.Materials and methodsRetrospective analysis of labor indution and primary cesarean section in SGA pregnancies 37  weeks and beyond in a tertiary care centre. In total, 284 consecutive patients wit...

In this study, seven 30-norlupane derivatives (2-8) wasobtained from the chemical oxidation ofbetulinic acidfollowed bybiotransformationviaBacillus megateriumCGMCC 1.1741. And metabolites 2-4 and 6-8 were newly identified products. In the first step, betulinic acid was chemically oxidizedto platanic acid (1). Following the chemical oxidation, B. megaterium catalyzed the hydroxylation at C-7, C-11, C-15 and C-23 of platanic acid (1) as well as the oxidation of C-3 hydroxyl group. Compared to the labor-intensive isolation from natural plants, this chemical-microbial semi-synthesis is more capable to provide increased structu...
