The aim of the study was to analyse the association between celiac disease and reproductive disorders in the group of celiac patients and compare these to healthy controls.MethodsA retrospective case-control matched study. The association between celiac disease and menstrual cycle, gyneco-obstetrical complications was assessed with a questionnaire specifically developed for the study. 144 celiac women and 61 celiac men, members of Slovenian Celiac Society, together with 71 healthy women and 31 healthy men participated in the study.ResultsA higher percentage of celiac women (27.1%) had difficulties in conception of the first child when compared to healthy controls (12.7%) (p = 0.042). In addition, celiac women experienced more complications than healthy controls during the pregnancy, such as abortions or intrauterine growth retardation (p

(CNN) — Your social media could reveal a lot more about you than you think. Say, for example, whether you have a medical condition.

Facebook status updates were “particularly effective at predicting diabetes and mental health conditions including anxiety, depression and psychoses,” the study found. The study will be published June 19 in PLOS One, a peer-reviewed open access scientific journal published since 2006 “Peop...

Abstract We hypothesize that, ancestrally, sex-specific immune modulation evolved to facilitate survival of the pregnant person in the presence of an invasive placenta and an immunologically challenging pregnancy - an idea we term the 'pregnancy compensation hypothesis' (PCH). Further, we propose that sex differences in immune function are mediated, at least in part, by the evolution of gene content and dosage on the sex chromosomes, and are regulated by reproductive hormones. Finally, we propose that changes in reproductive ecology in industrialized environments exacerbate these evolved sex differences, resulting...

(American Osteopathic Association) The next step will be to further fractionate the samples based on chemical and physical properties, presenting them back to the dogs until the specific biomarkers for each cancer are identified. The goal is to develop an over-the-counter screening product, similar to a pregnancy test, in terms of cost, simplicity and availability. Dr. Quinn envisions a device that someone can breathe into and see a color change to indicate a positive or negative finding.
