Background: For pregnant women with rheumatic heart disease (RHD), the increased risk of adverse health outcomes for themselves and their babies demands a collaborative approach that addresses cultural needs. A high burden of this preventable disease persists among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, M āori and Pacifica women and other vulnerable populations. Research and advocacy initiatives increasingly call for culturally-appropriate models to achieve early assessment and holistic care. The 3rd edition of the Australian RHD Guidelines address these.

(European Society of Endocrinology) Women who breastfed their babies are less likely to develop heart disease later in life, according to findings to be presented in Lyon, at the European Society of Endocrinology annual meeting, ECE 2019. The study also suggests that the protective effect on heart health is increased in women who breastfed for longer periods of time. These findings provide further evidence for the long-term health benefits of breastfeeding and that women should be encouraged to do so when possible.

Abstract Congenital Heart Disease (CHD) is characterised by a wide range of cardiac defects, from mild to life-threatening, which occur in babies worldwide. To date, there is no cure to CHD, however, progress in surgery has reduced its mortality allowing children affected by CHD to reach adulthood. In an effort to understand its genetic basis, several studies involving whole-genome sequencing (WGS) of patients with CHD have been undertaken and generated a great wealth of information. The majority of putative causative mutations identified in WGS studies fall into the non-coding part of the genome. Unfortunately, d...

The Copenhagen Baby Heart Study (CBHS) is a population-based cohort study of neonates (N  = 25,000), including echocardiography. Echocardiography in neonates is mainly focused on congenital heart disease (CHD), whereas general aspects of cardiac dimensions and function in neonates without CHD remain to be further addressed.

(CNN) — Does sugar make kids hyper? Maybe. “If you look at the peer-reviewed evidence, we cannot say sugar absolutely makes kids hyper; however, you can’t discount that sugar may have a slight effect” on behavior, said Kristi L. King, senior pediatric dietitian at Texas Children’s Hospital and spokeswoman for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. In the mid-1990s, a meta-analysis reviewed 16 studies on sugar’s effects in children. The research, published in the medical journal JAMA, concluded that sugar does not affect behavior or cognitive performance in children. “However, a sm...

Conclusions and Perspectives In this review, we have discussed important milestones from the early description of “Serum-sickness” as being due to antibodies directed against Neu5Gc epitopes all the way to the present-day therapeutic implications of these antibodies in cancer therapy. Some of these milestones have been represented in a concise timeline (Figure 6). While the “Xenosialitis” hypothesis is well-supported in the human-like mouse models, it has yet to be conclusively proven in humans. It remains to be seen if “Xenosialitis” plays a role in other uniquely-human diseases. FI...

ConclusionHigh rates of detection are mainly due to low rates of referral when indicated and possibly parental anxiety about a CHD diagnosis.

This study demonstrated that the incidence of ischemic heart disease and death were three times higher among men with low birth weight compared to men with high birth weight (5). Epidemiological investigations of adults born at the time of the Dutch famine between 1944 and 1945 revealed an association between maternal starvation and a low infant birth weight with a high incidence of hypertension and coronary heart disease in these adults (23). Furthermore, Painter et al. reported the incidence of early onset coronary heart disease among persons conceived during the Dutch famine (24). In that regard, Barker's findin...
