CONCLUSIONS: Pregnancy-specific anxiety was found to significantly increase the risk of PTB and LBW in a military population. Understanding this relationship is essential in developing effective assessments and interventions. Results emphasize the importance of prenatal maternal mental health to fetal health and birth outcomes. Further research is needed to determine the specific physiological pathways that link prenatal anxiety and depression with poor birth outcomes. PMID: 31808825 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

KovácsAbstractChronic stress is often accompanied by gastrointestinal symptoms, which might be due to stress-induced shift of gut microbiome to pathogenic bacteria. It has been hypothesized that stress alters gut permeability and results in mild endotoxemia which exaggerates HPA activity and co...

CONCLUSIONS: Prenatally initiated CBT did not improve maternal symptoms or child outcomes among non-help-seeking women with antenatal depression or anxiety. Our findings are not in line with present recommendations for universal screening and treatment for antenatal depression or anxiety, and future work may include the relevance of baseline help-seeking.

AbstractWe explored the association between HIV-related stigma and experiences of intimate partner violence (IPV) and depression with viral load suppression, and medication and visit adherence in postpartum women receiving lifelong antiretroviral therapy (ART) (N  = 200). We administered a cross-sectional survey to 200 women with HIV at 12 months postpartum who were enrolled in the MOTIVATE trial. The MOTIVATE study is a cluster-randomized trial evaluating the impact of community mentor mothers and text messaging on PMTCT outcomes in southwestern Kenya. Simple and multivariable logistic regression analys...

ConclusionsThe study findings support the formulation of mother-sensitive health policies based on understanding mothers ’ preferences, and thus, help prepare treatment alternatives that will suit different groups of mothers with PPD, for the benefit of mothers, newborns, and families. Disseminating the results of this study among professionals as part of professional training, can promote appropriate treatment faci lities and modes of care for mothers with PPD.

Publication date: Available online 3 December 2019Source: Neuroscience LettersAuthor(s): Yan-Hai Li, Youjun Li, Liang Zheng, Jue WangAbstractMedial vestibular nucleus (MVN) neurons are involved in the regulation of eye movements to endure the stability of the image during head movement, and play a critical role in plasticity of the vestibulo-ocular reflex (VOR) during the juvenile period. We have previously shown that the long-term depression (LTD) of synaptic transmission was induced by high frequency stimulation (HFS) and blocked by N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor antagonist D-APV at the vestibular afferent synapses...

Conclusionsthe present study offers additional support to the usefulness of longitudinal S100B and drug level monitoring in depressed pregnant women and in the early detection of cases at risk for short-term neurological abnormalities. Results open the way at further investigations correlating antidepressant drugs and neurobiomarkers in the maternal bloodstream.
