CONCLUSIONS: Lessons from the successful delivery of maternal tetanus immunization in Malawi may be informative for similar countries considering new vaccines for pregnant women or striving to optimize the delivery of those currently provided. PMID: 31319932 [PubMed - in process]
In conclusion, these findings indicated that Zeb1 may promote placental implantation by activating the Akt signaling pathway, thus providing a theoretical basis for investigating the causes of MAP. PMID: 31322233 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
When IVF patients get pregnant, they know how important measuring their blood HCG level is, to monitor the health of their pregnancy.However , they aren't sure how to interpret these levels.The reason it can be hard to make sense of them is because the normal range varies vary so widely; and because they rise so quickly as the pregnancy grows.Remember that HCG levels are very dependent on the gestational age of the pregnancy.Also, tracking HCG levels over time gives us far more valuable information as compared to just a single level !Read more at www.drmalpani.com/knowledge-center/articles/hcgYou can register at www....
CONCLUSIONS: Most stakeholders considered different approaches to partner HIV testing to be acceptable, but concerns were raised about each. A choice-based approach may allow women to select their preferred method of partner testing; however, implementation challenges need to be addressed. PMID: 31321884 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSIONExposure to some phthalate-containing pharmaceutical drugs during third trimester is associated with preterm birth.
ConclusionsThe GBS detection rate of the vagino-perineal swab was lower compared to the reference standard. However, agreement between the two screening methods was high and there were no cases of GBS neonatal sepsis in the recruited population, supporting this less invasive screening strategy. In contrast, the vaginal-perineal swab was inferior to the rectal swab for detecting ESBL-E, indicating that this less invasive method for detecting antibiotic resistant bacteria that may be potentially transferred to the neonate during labor and delivery would be inappropriate for ESBL-E screening in pregnant women. The low ESBL-E ...
ConclusionsBacterial resistance is frequent among patients with ASB and planned urological procedures. Advanced age and prior hospitalization should be borne in mind for patients with planned urological procedures because they are factors associated with the presence of MDR bacteria.
Conclusion: A significant proportion of pregnant women have anti-HBs while the seroprevalence of HCV is low among pregnant women in the city of Mwanza. Routine screening of HBV among pregnant women coupled with appropriate management should be emphasized in developing countries. Further studies to determine seroprevalence of HCV are recommended across the country. PMID: 31316835 [PubMed - in process]
