Developing a model for a signalling pathway requires several iterations of experimentation and model refinement to obtain an accurate model. However, the implementation of such an approach to model a signalling pathway induced by a poorly-known stimulus can become labour intensive because only limited information on the pathway is available beforehand to formulate an initial model. Therefore, a large number of iterations are required since the initial model is likely to be erroneous. In this work, a numerical scheme is proposed to construct a time-varying model for a signalling pathway induced by a poorly-known stimulus wh...

ConclusionsWe investigated an unusual case of severe septated nuchal cystic hygroma associated with bilateral syndactyly of the fingers and toes in a stillborn infant with Turner syndrome. Although cystic hygroma has been frequently reported in 45,X the severity is marked in this case. In addition, syndactyly is not a typical complication of Turner syndrome. This case emphasizes the importance of early ultrasound in pregnancy.

We herein report, to our knowledge, the first case of attempt to treat placenta accreta leaved in situ in human after delivery using RF ablation. The patient was a 35-year-old (gravida two para one) with history of cesarean delivery. Ultrasonography at 32 weeks of gestation showed an anterior placenta not low-lying. Labor was induced at 39 weeks and a female neonate weighing 3 400  g was delivered by vacuum extraction. Placenta delivery was incomplete and attempts for manual removal and uterine revision failed leading to suspicion of partial placenta accreta.

CONCLUSION: A long cervix in the third trimester is not associated with a prolonged first stage of labor. Induction of labor and multiparity were associated with a shorter first stage of labor while hypertension was associated with a longer duration of labor.

Abstract Although progesterone (P4) supplementation is the most widely used therapy for the prevention of preterm labor (PTL), reports of its clinical efficacy have been conflicting. We have previously shown that the anti-inflammatory effects of P4 can be enhanced by increasing intracellular cAMP levels in primary human myometrial cells. Here we have examined whether adding aminophylline (Am), a non-specific phosphodiesterase (PDE) inhibitor that increases intracellular cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) levels, to P4 might improve its efficacy using in vivo and in vitro models of PTL. In a mouse model of lipop...

Abstract OBJECTIVE: To compare perinatal and maternal outcomes in low-risk multiparous women who underwent elective induction of labor in the 39th week of gestation with those who were expectantly managed. METHODS: We performed a single center retrospective cohort study of low-risk multiparous women delivering nonanomalous singletons between 39 and 42 completed weeks of gestation from 2014 to 2018. The primary outcome was a perinatal composite of death, neonatal respiratory support, a 5-minute Apgar score of 3 or less, and shoulder dystocia. Groups were compared using χ, Fisher exact, two sample t-test, a...
