Authors: Suoh M, Tamori A, Amano-Teranishi Y, Nakai T, Enomoto M, Kawasaki Y, Kioka K, Kawada N Abstract The appropriate management of hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection during pregnancy has not been established in Japan. We herein report five HBV-infected pregnant Japanese women who received tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (TDF). Two of them had been born after the introduction of nationwide immunoprophylaxis and were vertically infected with HBV, highlighting the need to address mother-to-child transmission further. In both entecavir-experienced and nucleoside/nucleotide analog-naïve mothers, TDF suppressed HBV...

Maternal gut microflora changes dramatically during perinatal period and plays a vital role in animal health and reproductive performance. However, little is known about the microbial differences between sows with different productive capacities during perinatal period. Hence, this study explored fecal microbial diversity, composition, metabolic functions, and phenotypes differences between high productive capacity (HPC, litter size ≥ 15) and low productive capacity (LPC, litter size ≤ 7) sows during late pregnancy (LP, the third day before due date) and early stage after parturition (EAP, the third day after parturi...
