Pregnant Women Vaccinated During 2009 H1N1 Pandemic Flu Outbreak Had Reduced Risk Of Preterm Birth

Pregnant women who received the H1N1 influenza vaccine during the 2009 pandemic were less likely to have premature babies, and their babies weighed more on average. Influenza infection during pregnancy is associated with adverse infant outcomes such as preterm birth. Emory researchers from the Rollins School of Public Health, in a joint study with Kaiser Permanente of Georgia and the Mid-Atlantic States, evaluated the effectiveness of the H1N1 influenza vaccine in pregnant women against adverse infant outcomes during the 2009 pandemic...

Authors: Kanmaz AGK, Hamdi İnan A, Beyan E, Budak A Abstract We investigated various monitoring protocols on the success of methotrexate therapy in patients with tubal ectopic pregnancy. The data from patients who received single-dose methotrexate therapy as their first-line treatment was reviewed. The Beta-human chorionic gonadotropin (BhCG) days 1-4 and days 1-7 follow-up protocols were compared with the BhCG day 4-7 follow-up protocol, in terms of the treatment. Cut-off values were determined for the reduction of BhCG between the days 1-4 and days 1-7. There were no significant differences between the groups in...

This study aimed to evaluate the effects of coasting, cabergoline and clarithromycin in a rat ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) model. The 42 female Wistar rats were divided into seven groups: control, OHSS (was given 10 IU of pregnant mare serum gonadotropin for 4 consecutive days from day 22 and 30 IU hCG on the fifth day to induce OHSS ), coasting (hCG was applied on the 27th day after gonadotropin injections and the rats were decapitated on the 28th day), Cabergoline (100 mg/kg/d) and clarithromycin (100 mg/kg/d) were given (on the 26th day) with a short-term supplementation (on the 26th day) and long-term suppl...

In this study, aqueous suspensions of various active ingredients (A.I.s) were utilized to generate Engineered Water Nanostructures (EWNS) nano-sanitizers, containing the A.I. utilized to produced them (termed iEWNS). These iEWNS had nanoscale size, were loaded with ROS and contained the A.I. utilized to produce them. They were challenged with Influenza H1N1/PR/8 and Acinetobacter baumannii on surfaces and in air. The results indicate that a nanogram dose of A.I. is effective in producing significant inactivation in Influenza H1N1/PR/8 and Acinetobacter baumannii.

Hormonal changes have been implicated in the phenomenon of pain modulation during pregnancy. The role of psychosocial constructs such as fear and anxiety related to pain during pregnancy, however, has largely been overlooked. The current study investigated the cross-sectional associations between the report of pain-related fear among pregnant and non-pregnant female participants. The study consisted of three different convenience samples: pregnant females (N=1171; age: M=28.61, SD=5.3), non-pregnant female undergraduate students (N=274; age M=19.81, SD=3.9), and non-pregnant female patients (N=212) diagnosed with chronic p...

We present the case of a 35-year-old female at 25-week gestational age with new onset severe low back and right leg pain. The patient had a history of prior lumbar laminectomy and discectomy for similar symptoms. She presented after failed conservative management with gabapentin and acetaminophen and the pain began to interfere with her daily activities.

“The body,” says Clara Mucci, “is the essential go-between in the relationship between the self and other.” In personality disorders, this relationship between the self and the other is especially troubled. However, this “other” can be the body itself. Mucci describes psychosomatic disorders as an outcome of the “problematic junction between mind and body.” The body can also act as an imprinting device in which earlier generations transmit their trauma onto us. In her new book, Borderline Bodies: Affect Regulation Theory for Personality Disorders, Mucci places the body at the...

In this study, we performed the risk assessment of Vibrio parahaemolyticus in raw oysters in Taiwan under the seasonal variations, time horizons, and climate scenarios. Sixty-four scenarios with 100,000 iterations were performed with Monte Carlo simulation. The results showed the estimated risk of eating oysters under the baseline to be 2.2 × 10−5, 4.5 × 10−5, 9.4 × 10−5, and 6.2 × 10−5 per serving in winter, spring, summer, and fall, respectively. The risk in that baseline in this study was found to be intensified by 23%, 35%, 37%, and 65% by RCP2.6, RCP4.5, ...
