This study questioned whether raised pre-pregnancy two-hour (2 h) insulin levels, measured in recurrent embryonic miscarriage (RM) patients via a 75 g Oral Glucose Tolerance Test (OGTT), are associated with an increased risk of gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) in a subsequent pregnancy. Patients had a 75 g OGTT and insulin levels evaluated (n = 170). 54.1% had normal glucose and insulin levels, 45.9% had levels indicating hyperinsulinism (HI). In the 98 patients who achieved a pregnancy, the prevalence of GDM was 3.7% in those without HI, and 35.7% in the patients who only had raised 2...

Conclusionshp-HMG and rFSH did not lead to significantly different treatment outcomes in POR patients undergoing IVF/ISCI with a GnRH antagonist protocol, although significantly higher serum IGF-1 level and insignificantly lower serum IGFBP-1 level on the day of oocyte retrieval associated with hp-HMG might suggest a beneficial endocrine environment.

​I have been seeing a lot of second disease and fifth disease—it's that time of year. School is back in session, and winter is just around the corner.The rash-numbering system for these diseases is now a historical footnote, but fifth disease is still commonly used by physicians to refer to erythema infectiosum, a parvovirus. I suspect that this system was created as a memory device for similar names and the obscure Latin terms used for these diseases. Erythema infectiosum is also easy to confuse with the many other erythema rashes such as erythema migrans, erythema marginatum, erythema toxicum, and erythema multif...

Abstract BACKGROUND: Endometrial preparation with hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is the preferred regimen for clinicians due to the opportunity to schedule the day of embryo transfer and for patients due to the requirement of fewer visits for frozen-warmed embryo transfers (FET). The increasing number of FETs raises the question of the serum P levels required to optimize the pregnancy outcome on the embryo transfer day. METHODS: This prospective cohort study includes patients who underwent single euploid FET. All patients received HRT with oestradiol valerate (EV) and 100 mg of intramuscular (IM) pr...

In conclusion, our data highlight a plausible cause-effect association between the observed increase in placental OS level and depletion of the activity of antioxidant enzymes. This suggests that OS is a contributing factor in the pathogenesis of idiopathic RM. PMID: 31772636 [PubMed]
