Electroconvulsive Therapy in Pregnancy: Safety, Best Practices, and Barriers to Care
Conclusions and Relevance Electroconvulsive therapy is a highly effective and safe treatment modality for unipolar depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and other psychiatric illnesses. Electroconvulsive therapy treatment in pregnancy requires a multidisciplinary team approach with obstetrics, maternal-fetal medicine, psychiatry, and anesthesiology, but is overall felt to be safe and effective. Target Audience Obstetricians and gynecologist, family medicine physicians. Learning Objectives After completing this activity, the learner should be better able to assess the current evidence and best practices regarding ECT use in pregnant patients; describe risks, benefits, and contraindications to ECT use in pregnant patients; and explain the potential for practice gaps in the utilization of ECT in pregnancy.

Propofol suppresses the progression of non‑small cell lung cancer via downregulation of the miR‑21‑5p/MAPK10 axis. Oncol Rep. 2020 May 21;: Authors: Wu X, Li X, Xu G Abstract Non‑small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) accounts for>80% of lung cancer cases and is the leading cause of cancer‑associated mortality worldwide. Propofol is an anesthetic drug frequently used during tumor resection. It is also known to exert inhibitory effects on cancer. Although the role of propofol in NSCLC has been reported, its underlying mechanisms remain unknown. The present study aimed therefore to investigate the m...

miR‑205 suppresses cell migration, invasion and EMT of colon cancer by targeting mouse double minute 4. Mol Med Rep. 2020 May 18;: Authors: Fan Y, Wang K Abstract Colon cancer is one of the most frequent malignant tumors, and microRNA (miR)‑205 is involved in the tumor progression. The present study aimed to explore the effects of miR‑205 on human colon cancer and its targeting mechanism. The levels of miR‑205 and mouse double minute 4 (MDM4) were determined via reverse transcription‑quantitative (RT‑q)PCR and western blot analysis. A luciferase activity assay was performed t...
