DiscussionSetting optimized thyrotropin cutoffs for reflex testing of free thyroxine would reduce the need for this test. Clinical laboratories need to offer not only true results, but also become the cornerstone in the optimization of resources.

AbstractIntroductionMaternal perception of fetal movements has long been considered an indicator of fetal well ‐being. A sudden decrease in the number of fetal movements is suggestive of fetal compromise. We aimed to determine whether the maternal perception of reduced fetal movements (RFM) is associated with placental pathological lesions in a low‐risk term population.Material and methodsOur study was a case ‐control study that was performed in a single university center. Placental histopathology, maternal demographics, labor characteristics, and neonatal outcomes of term, singleton pregnancies with maternal percept...

Abstract The aim of this study was to investigate the therapeutic effects and underlying mechanism of tetramethylpyrazine (TMP) on lung development using a rat model of congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH). Nitrofen was used to induce CDH. Pregnant rats were divided into three groups: control, CDH, and CDH+TMP. In the CDH and CDH+TMP, fetuses only with left diaphragmatic hernias were chosen for analysis. Lung and body weight were recorded and lung histologic evaluations, image analysis, and western blot analysis of YAP, p-YAP and LATS1 were performed after lung processing. A markedly abnormal structure was observ...

Authors: Raherison C, Hamzaoui A, Nocent-Ejnaini C, Essari LA, Ouksel H, Zysman M, Prudhomme A, groupe de travail Femmes et poumons de la SPLF Abstract In a woman's life, asthma can affect her in a variety of ways, with the onset of premenstrual asthma currently under-diagnosed. It is estimated that about 20% of women with asthma have premenstrual asthma, which is more common in patients with severe asthma. Women with asthma are at high risk of exacerbations and of severe asthma. Asthma is the most common chronic disease during pregnancy with potential maternal and foetal complications. Asthma medications are safe ...

This study was designed to investigate changes in blood subfatin and spexin levels during gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) and childbirth, and define the mechanisms of these hormones in the physiopathology of GDM. A total of 60 pregnant women, comprising 30 diagnosed with GDM and 30 with normal gestation, were included in the study. The diagnosis of GDM was made through a 75-g oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) administered between 24 and 28 weeks of pregnancy. The amounts of subfatin, spexin, and insulin were measured in blood samples by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays; lipid profiles, glucose, and other biochemical...

The present review presents a comprehensive literature search and meta-analysis on chromosomal abnormality rates of pregnancy loss tissue from women with a single or recurrent pregnancy loss. We included 55 studies, published since 2000, which we analyzed on the prevalence of test failure rates, abnormality detection rates and percentages of trisomy, monosomy X, structura...

This study used hierarchical-Bayesian Spatio-temporal modeling to explore space-time patterns and pinpoint health-districts with an exceedance probability of severe MiP incidence and fatality rate. Study also assessed effect of health-district service delivery (readiness) on severe-MiP outcomes.Severe-MiP fatality rate declined considerably while its incidence rate remained unchanged between January-2013 and December-2018. Severe-MiP cases persisted throughout the year with peaks between. These peaks increased 2.5-fold the fatality rate. Furthermore, severe-MiP fatality was higher in health-districts classified as low-read...
