The daily pill is to be taken in conjunction with a healthy diet and the highest statin dose patients can handle, the FDA said. High LDL, o...

The association persisted when adjusted for educational level and intelligence test scores in young adulthood, suggesting that height is not just acting as an indicator of cognitive reserve.

Authors: Abstract Stillbirth is one of the most common adverse pregnancy outcomes, occurring in 1 in 160 deliveries in the United States. In developed countries, the most prevalent risk factors associated with stillbirth are non-Hispanic black race, nulliparity, advanced maternal age, obesity, preexisting diabetes, chronic hypertension, smoking, alcohol use, having a pregnancy using assisted reproductive technology, multiple gestation, male fetal sex, unmarried status, and past obstetric history. Although some of these factors may be modifiable (such as smoking), many are not. The study of specific causes of stil...

Publication date: January 2020Source: Pregnancy Hypertension, Volume 19Author(s): Cecilia Villalain, Ignacio Herraiz, Borja Cantero, Soledad Quezada, Ana Lopez, Elisa Simón, Alberto GalindoAbstractObjectivesThe optimal timing for delivery in non-severe late-preterm (34 + 0–36 + 6 weeks) preeclampsia (PE) is uncertain. It is attempted to reach term pregnancy safely but current clinical and analytical parameters fail to determine which cases will develop severe features that require preterm delivery. We aim to establish if angiogenic biomarkers may identify cases that would benefit from ...
