Pregnant? Make Sure You ’re Vaccinated to Protect Yourself, Baby From Disease

Vaccinations before and during pregnancy are important to protect both mother and baby. Three vaccinations are recommended: flu, Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, and acellular pertussis), and MMR (measles, mumps, and rubella).

Brucella infects humans and various domestic and wild animals, and represents a great threat to public health and animal husbandry. In the present study, we developed a real-time recombinase polymerase amplification (RPA) assay for the detection of Brucella. The assay targeted the bcsp31 gene of Brucella, and an RPA exo probe and ...

ConclusionsThe present drug-free IVA approach may be suitable for POR patients with DOR, as it increased the number of antral follicles. The procedure also eliminated the need for 2-day incubation with drugs and required only one surgery. This approach could allow the retrieval of more oocytes in middle-age women to achieve higher pregnancy rates and deserves proper evaluation in future randomized controlled trials.

Conclusions Although most obstetrician/gynecologists administer some vaccines to pregnant women, the focus remains on influenza and Tdap. Financial barriers and infrequent use of evidence-based strategies for increasing vaccination uptake may be hindering delivery of a broader complement of adult vaccines in obstetrician/gynecologist offices.

The association between microcephaly and congenital Zika virus infection was confirmed. We provide evidence of the absence of an effect of other potential factors, such as exposure to pyriproxyfen or vaccines (tetanus, diphtheria, and acellular pertussis, measles and rubella, or measles, mumps, and rubella) during pregnancy, confirming the findings of an ecological study of pyriproxyfen in Pernambuco and previous studies on the safety of Tdap vaccine administration during pregnancy.

Abstract OBJECTIVES: To propose guidelines for clinical practice regarding pertussis, influenza, varicella and rubella vaccination in the early post-partum. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Bibliographic searches were performed with PubMed and Cochrane databases, and within national guidelines and their references. RESULTS: Women that have not got vaccinated in the past 10 years should receive a dose of diphtheria-tetanus-acellular pertussis-poliomyelitis vaccine in the early post-partum, and the family and friends should be included in the cocooning strategy (professional consensus). During seasonal influenz...
