The Association of ToRCH Infection and Congenital Malformations: A Prospective Study in China

ConclusionToRCH infection was a significant risk factor of severe damage to the fetus, especially congenital malformations. ToRCH screening for pregnant women can reduce the incidence of adverse pregnancy and prevent birth defects in china.

Embryo implantation is a still a "black box" as far as medical science is concerned, because we can't predict or control which embryos will implant. This is hardly surprising, given that it's a complex biological process, which involves an intricate interchange of signals between the embryo and the uterine lining.There are lots of factors which determine success, and while we know what some of these are, many are still beyond our comprehension.For example, we know that a top quality embryo has a better chance of resulting in a pregnancy, as compared to a poor quality embryo.However, we also know that not every pe...

Kasak Jan Tkac The study describes development of a glycan biosensor for detection of a tumor-associated antibody. The glycan biosensor is built on an electrochemically activated/oxidized graphene screen-printed electrode (GSPE). Oxygen functionalities were subsequently applied for covalent immobilization of human serum albumin (HSA) as a natural nanoscaffold for covalent immobilization of Thomsen-nouvelle (Tn) antigen (GalNAc-O-Ser/Thr) to be fully available for affinity interaction with its analyte—a tumor-associated antibody. The step by step building process of glycan biosensor development was comprehe...

Conclusions: The efficacies of daily TDF and event-driven TDF use were not significantly different in preventing new infections among HIV-negative MSM. Event-driven TDF use is economical and effective and is worth popularizing. Our results provide evidence for the application and promotion of the PrEP strategy in the MSM population in China.

AbstractEndovaginal sonographic imaging has been shown to reliably identify pelvic endometriosis, but most United States  imaging practices do not adequately assess locations and features of endometriosis beyond ovarian endometrioma. In this article, we propose a protocol for sonographer-acquired images and maneuvers to be interpreted subsequently by sonologists (radiologists or gynecologists). The purpose is to impr ove the sensitivity of endovaginal sonography for the detection of endometriosis in imaging practices that involve the non-physician sonographer as part of their workflow.

AbstractMore women participate in sports than ever before and the proportion of women athletes at the Olympic Games is nearly 50%. The pelvic floor in women may be the only area of the body where the positive effect of physical activity has been questioned. The aim of this narrative review is to present two widely held opposing hypotheses on the effect of general exercise on the pelvic floor and to discuss the evidence for each. Hypothesis 1: by strengthening the pelvic floor muscles (PFM) and decreasing the levator hiatus, exercise decreases the risk of urinary incontinence, anal incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse, bu...
