Conclusions: Our results suggest that the IL-6 -174 G > C, -634 G > C and IL-18 -137 G > C polymorphisms may contribute to the susceptibility of RPL. The IL-18 -607 C > A polymorphism does not appear to influence the development of RPL. PMID: 31437073 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Sert UY, Ozel S, Neselioglu S, Erel O, Engin Ustun Y Abstract Objective: The study aims to investigate maternal serum thiol/disulfide homeostasis and ischemia-modified albumin (IMA) levels of women who were submerged during labor. Material and methods: Sixty-four pregnant women were enrolled in this study. Thirty-four women were submerged during the first stage of labor and 30 women were not. Native thiol, total thiol, disulfide, albumin, IMA, disulfide/native thiol, disulfide/total thiol and native thiol/total thiol concentrations were measured and demographic data were obtained. Results: Cord blood pH, s...

Riethmuller, L. Pazart, R. RamanahAbstractPurposeThe first aim was to evaluate feasibility and reproducibility of 2-dimensional ultrasound (2D) shear wave elastography (SWE) of human fetal lungs and liver between 24 and 34 weeks of gestation. The second aim was to model fetal lung-to-liver elastography ratio (LLE ratio) and to assess its variations according to gestational age and maternal administration of corticosteroids.M...

AbstractMuch of the literature on the healthy worker effect focuses on studies of chronic disease and mortality; however, when studying pregnancy outcomes, these effects might differ because of the short, defined risk periods of most pregnancy outcomes. Three pregnancy-specific healthy worker effects have also been described, but the structure of these effects has not yet been investigated when occupational exposure, and not employment status, is the exposure of interest. We used directed acyclic graphs to examine healthy worker effects in studies of occupational exposures and pregnancy outcomes: the healthy hire effect, t...

AbstractThe time between arrest of pregnancy development and miscarriage represents a window in which the pregnancy is nonviable and not developing. In effect, the pregnancy loss has already occurred, and additional exposure cannot influence its outcome. However, epidemiologic studies of miscarriage traditionally use gestational age at miscarriage (GAM) to assign time in survival analyses, which overestimates duration of exposure and time at risk. In Right From the Start, a pregnancy cohort study (2000 –2012), we characterized the gap between estimated gestational age at arrest of development (GAAD) and miscarriage u...

Conclusions: KCl injection under ultrasonographic guidance could be a safer and more effective treatment option than surgical treatment in hemodynamically stable patients with fetal cardiac activity in interstitial pregnancy. Expectant management could be an option for patients with no fetal cardiac activity. PMID: 31432733 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

This study aimed to identify different groups of pregnant women based on their behavioral, psychosocial and socio-economic characteristics and their pregnancy outcomes.In total, 2455 women who were 12 weeks pregnant completed a questionnaire on smoking behavior, health behaviors and psychosocial and socio-economic characteristics. Neonatal and maternal outcomes were extracted from the Dutch perinatal registration. Subgroups were identified with latent class analysis and adverse pregnancy outcomes were compared between subgroups with logistic regression.Women were classified into four latent classes. Two classes represent...

Authors: Ericksen K, Fogel J, Verma RP Abstract Background: The etiopathogenesis of late preterm birth is undetermined. Placental histopathology (PH) reflects adverse intrauterine environment and is documented to be associated with preterm labor and neonatal morbidities. The placental histopathology has not been studied in late preterm infants. Purpose: We investigated placental pathological lesion as markers of adverse intrauterine environment during late preterm labor. Methods: In a retrospective case control study following placental histopathological and clinical variables were compared between late pre...
