Recommendations of the Polish Psychiatric Association for treatment of affective disorders in women of childbearing age. Part III: Approach to pregnancy loss and unsuccessful in vitro treatment of infertility.

This article presents recommendations of the Polish Psychiatric Association regarding approach to pregnancy loss and unsuccessful in vitro treatment of infertility. From the psychological perspective pregnancy loss and perinatal death are amongst the most stressful events in human life - carrying increased risk of developing affective, anxiety or post-traumatic stress disorders. Psychologists, physicians and the rest of the medical staff should provide integrated and individualized care which should be based on respect, empathy and expertise. The necessary phases of support for women experiencing pregnancy loss are: (1) physician providing exhaustive informational support regarding state of health, potential causes of fetal death, further approach and phases of induced labor of the fetus/pregnancy termination/procedure, (2) facilitating psychological consultation at any time and (3) providing exhaustive information on current legal standing (health insurance and labor law). Experiencing recurrent in vitro fertilization failures may result in the emotional consequences similar to those observed in miscarriages. The prolonged frustration may favor developing depressive symptoms and escalate pathological anxiety. We present basic recommendations for psychotherapy and pharmacotherapy in pregnancy loss and unsuccessful in vitro infertility treatment. PMID: 31317958 [PubMed - in process]

Conclusions: Our results suggest that the IL-6 -174 G > C, -634 G > C and IL-18 -137 G > C polymorphisms may contribute to the susceptibility of RPL. The IL-18 -607 C > A polymorphism does not appear to influence the development of RPL. PMID: 31437073 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Sert UY, Ozel S, Neselioglu S, Erel O, Engin Ustun Y Abstract Objective: The study aims to investigate maternal serum thiol/disulfide homeostasis and ischemia-modified albumin (IMA) levels of women who were submerged during labor. Material and methods: Sixty-four pregnant women were enrolled in this study. Thirty-four women were submerged during the first stage of labor and 30 women were not. Native thiol, total thiol, disulfide, albumin, IMA, disulfide/native thiol, disulfide/total thiol and native thiol/total thiol concentrations were measured and demographic data were obtained. Results: Cord blood pH, s...

The persistence of traumatic memories and deficit in extinction contributes to the failure of exposure therapy in PTSD.With the objective to enhance the outcomes of exposure therapy by targeting the extinction window using pharmacological agents in PTSD, the present study...

ConclusionTargeted NGS lead to the detection of 5 infertile males with CFTR variants, who otherwise would have remained undiagnosed after routine genetic screening during the fertility work-up for azoospermia or severe oligozoospermia. Given the wide availability of targeted NGS in an affordable manner, our data suggest that full gene analysis, and not mutation panels, should be considered to screen CFTR in azoospermic men.

Abstract After the Fukushima nuclear accident in 2011, there was confusion among the public caused by uncoordinated information about radiation provided by diverse channels. We explored the association between information sources regarding reconstruction progress after the disaster and mental fatigue in Fukushima. We used data from the annual public opinion survey by the Fukushima Prefectural Government on its policies from 2013 to 2015, which contained survey responses from 1,300 community residents randomly selected from the 28 municipalities in the Fukushima Prefecture. The survey contained a question assessing...
