7.2 more than abstinence and condoms: comprehensive sexuality education

Research shows that 93 percent of Americans support sexuality education in schools. However, the extent of that education varies from state to state, with nearly half of states providing education that barely meets CDC recommendations for education on sexuality. The literature shows that comprehensive sexuality education has a number of benefits from increased sexual health and prevention of adolescent pregnancy to improved relationships and academic performance. This perspective will increase the participants ’ knowledge of comprehensive sexuality education.

Abstract Preeclampsia (PE) is termed as an obstetric issue that is characterized by hypertension (≧140/90 mm Hg), together with proteinuria following 20 weeks of pregnancy. Until today, PE still constitutes a severe threat to the lives of both the mothers and fetuses. In the past, long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) were considered as the transcriptional noise. However, some investigations have indicated that lncRNAs could be used as innovative indicators in PE. The current review aims to discuss the relationship between lncRNAs and PE in recent years. According to the retrieved data, we concluded that lncRNAs ...

A total of 12 healthy non-pregnant female goats were grouped into three: A, B and C consisting of four does each. Group A was intradermally inoculated with 2 mL of sterile phosphate buffered saline (PBS) pH 7 (negative control group); group B was intradermally inoculated with 2 mL of corynomycolic acid extract (CMAs), while group C was intradermally inocu...

Publication date: 12 November 2019Source: Stem Cell Reports, Volume 13, Issue 5Author(s): Joseph M. McCune, Irving L. WeissmanSome have argued that human fetal tissue research is unnecessary and/or immoral. Recently, the Trump administration has taken the drastic––and we believe misguided––step to effectively ban government-funded research on fetal tissue altogether. In this article, we show that entire lines of research and their clinical outcomes would not have progressed had fetal tissue been unavailable. We argue that this research has been carried out in a manner that is ethical and legal, and ...
