In this study, we determined the impacts of growth pattern to the end of the mating period and sire genetics on the reproductive performance of Merino ewe lambs. Five hundred ewe lambs with full pedigree records were managed under commercial conditions from weaning and weighed 43.5 kg at the start of the mating period with an average age of 224 days. The ewe lambs were offered a moderate or high feed allowance to achieve target growth rates of 100 or 200 g/day during a 46-day mating period. They were then recombined and scanned for pregnancy status 60 days after the mating period. At the individual animal lev...

Authors: Appak Ö, Manyaslı M, Cengiz MM, Deliloğlu B, Karaoğlu Asrak H, Özlü C, Sayıner AA Abstract The screening for syphilis during pregnancy is important to prevent intrauterine transmission and complications. Prozone phenomenon may cause a false negative result in non-treponemal syphilis tests, which complicates an accurate diagnosis. In this case report a newborn syphilis case was presented to emphasize the importance of reverse algorithm in diagnosis and the prozone phenomenon which can cause problems in rapid plasma reagin (RPR) test. The 2920 g infant patient was born from a 24-year-old m...

Publication date: Available online 16 August 2019Source: Physiology &BehaviorAuthor(s): Rodolfo Ungerfeld, Aline Freitas-de-MeloAbstractHigh progesterone concentrations reduce the stress responses in several mammals. Therefore, it may be expected that pregnant ewes have lower responses to stressors than anoestrous ewes. Our aims were to compare the stress response and the behavioural changes of pregnant and non-pregnant ewes sheared during winter. Two trials were with 20 were pregnant (group PR) and 17 non-pregnant ewes (group NP). In the first trial blood samples were collected immediately before and during the first ...

CONCLUSIONS The metabolic profile of human milk is dynamic throughout the first months of lactation. High levels of amino acids in colostrum and high levels of saturated fatty acids and unsaturated fatty acids in mature milk, which may be critical for neonatal development in the first month of life, were features of both normal and GDM pregnancies.

Publication date: Available online 16 August 2019Source: Reproductive ToxicologyAuthor(s): Debbie Yancu, Thomas SandersonAbstractWe determined whether 5 common essential oils (basil, fennel seed, orange, black pepper and sage) interfered with feto-placental steroidogenesis in a co-culture model composed of fetal-like adrenocortical (H295R) and placental trophoblast-like (BeWo) cells. After a 24 h exposure, only basil and fennel seed oil significantly increased hormone concentrations of estradiol, estrone, dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), androstenedione, progesterone, and estriol. Basil and fennel seed oil were shown ...

CONCLUSION: Thrombophilias are inherited or acquired predispositions to vascular thrombosis and have been associated with thrombosis of the arteriovenous fistula. Patients on hemodialysis with recurrent vascular access thrombosis and presence of thrombophilia should be evaluated about the need for anticoagulant therapy with a vitamin K antagonist.

ConclusionWe found that the PC, MPV, and PC/MPV may be changed in atypical PE patients who did not have significant PE symptoms. Our results indicated that it could be a diagnostic method to predict atypical PE during pregnancy. PC/MPV and the other platelet parameters can play a role in predicting the development of atypical PE, leading to better diagnosis and management of atypical PE.
