Maternal half-sibling families with discordant fathers: a contrastive design assessing cross-generational paternal genetic transmission of alcohol use disorder, drug abuse and major depression.

CONCLUSION: Reared together maternal half-siblings differ in their paternal genetic endowment, sharing the same mother, family, school and community. They can help clarify the nature of paternal genetic effects and produce results consistent with other designs. Paternal genetic risk for DA and AUD have effects on offspring educational achievement, child and adult psychopathology, and possibly prenatal development. The impact of paternal genetic risk for MD is narrower in scope. PMID: 30992087 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSION: This study confirmed published results that labour progresses more slowly as maternal BMI increases. The study was performed in a centre with a specialized BMI pregnancy clinic; thus weight gain adherence, awareness of labour differences, and patient counselling may have contributed to low Caesarean section rates. Obstetric care providers should consider differences in maternal BMI in labour progression before undertaking a potentially premature Caesarean birth, especially in primiparas.

Publication date: Available online 20 July 2019Source: Neuroscience &Biobehavioral ReviewsAuthor(s): Lily R. Aleksandrova, Yu Tian Wang, Anthony G. PhillipsAbstractIn order to expand the prospects of developing novel antidepressants for treatment-resistant populations, animal models should incorporate not only various stress-induced behavioural, neurochemical and endocrine parallels to major depressive disorder (MDD), but also aspects of heightened stress susceptibility and resistance to conventional drugs. This review focuses on the available literature supporting the Wistar-Kyoto (WKY) rat as a model of endogenous st...

This study investigated the prevalence of depression and explored fatigue, QOL, and pain that is associated with depression in patients on first admission to a hematologic oncology unit. METHODS: This descriptive study measured depression, QOL, and fatigue with the Patient Health Questionnaire-9, the Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy (FACT)-General, and the FACT-Anemia scale, respectively. Pain levels were examined with a numeric rating scale. FINDINGS: 58 patients participated; 17 reported moderate to severe depression, which highly correlated with fatigue, QOL, and pain. Among all factors, multivariate an...

ZakharovaAbstractAggregation behavior of mixed micellar solutions and microemulsions based on cationic carbamate-bearing surfactants with hexadecyl hydrophobic group and nonionic surfactants (Tween 80, Tween 20, and Triton X 100) has been studied. Critical micelle concentrations have been determined at varying component ratios, which demonstrated a negative deviation of surfactant systems from ideal behavior (synergetic effect). The electrokinetic po...

Conclusion: We concluded there was sufficient evidence supporting an association between developmental PBDE exposure and reduced IQ. Preventing developmental exposure to PBDEs could help prevent loss of human intelligence. https://doi.org/10.1289/EHP1632 Received: 16 January 2017 Revised: 28 April 2017 Accepted: 28 April 2017 Published: 03 August 2017 Address correspondence to J.
