Association between IVF/ICSI treatment and preterm birth and major perinatal outcomes among dichorionic ‐diamnionic twin pregnancies: a seven‐year retrospective cohort study

This study aimed to evaluate the preterm birth and additional perinatal outcomes between spontaneous and IVF/ICSI dichorionic ‐diamnionic (DCDA) twin pregnancies.Material and methodsThis retrospective cohort study was conducted in a tertiary university ‐affiliated medical center. All patients with DCDA twin pregnancies were considered for inclusion. The primary outcome of interest was preterm birth

OBJECTIVES: We performed a comprehensive health assessment in mechanically ventilated coronavirus disease 2019 survivors to assess the impact of respiratory and skeletal muscle injury sustained during ICU stay on physical performance at 3 months following hospital discharge. DESIGN: Preregistered prospective observational cohort study. SETTING: University hospital ICU. PATIENTS: All mechanically ventilated coronavirus disease 2019 patients admitted to our ICU during the first European pandemic wave. MEASUREMENTS AND MAIN RESULTS: At 3 months after hospital discharge, 46 survivors underwent a...

If it hurts – take notice, and avoid it. Learn from it. If there are other people around, make sure your behaviour is noticeable so they take care of you and don’t do what you just did. If they look after you, you’ll probably do the same thing again when you hurt, if they don’t you probably won’t. This is one description of pain behaviour and how it works. It’s the only part of our pain experience that we can share directly with one another (actions and words). The “doing” part is also the part that is most affected by pain – even distress is signalled to others &nd...

Pioneering psychiatrist and psychoanalyst who specialised in studying the effects of stillbirth on women ’s mental healthThe psychiatrist and psychoanalyst Stanford Bourne, who has died aged 92 of congestive cardiac failure, broke the silence in the 1960s surrounding the anguish of stillbirth. His work opened up discussion, addressed medical bias, and guided doctors and midwives towards a more compassionate approach.In the 60s, 18,000 women a year had a stillborn baby, but it was cloaked in secrecy. Well-meaning staff quickly removed babies before parents could see, name or hold them, and they were “disposed of...

AbstractSeries of grafting functionalization on silica microspheres were achieved to mono and bi-functionalized polymers for uranium recovery. Bi-functionalization sorbent is the most effective through improving the sorption capacity and other physico-chemical properties. Completed sorption time reached within 25  min for PAO-MAc/SiO2 at pH 4 with loading capacity 0.98  mmol U g−1, while the PFORE and Langmuir fitting the kinetics and isotherm plateaus respectively with completely desorption through 15  min using 0.5 M HCl. The sorbent shows high stability in sorption and desorption through minimu...

AbstractThe development of molecular imaging agents used for imaging of cancer tissue is of great importance for the early detection of cancer. Positron emission tomography (PET) radiopharmaceuticals consists of a positron-emitting radionuclide and a molecularstructure.89Zr-labeled monoclonal antibodies (mAbs), peptides, nanoparticles, proteins, and other compounds are called89Zr-Immuno-PET and are used in cancer tissue imaging. This review provides a general overview of the potential of molecules labeled with89Zr radionuclide, which is chosen due to its long half-life, in preclinical and clinical studies. In light of thes...

Summary Hepatitis B virus infection characterized by HBsAg positivity during pregnancy is a well‐recognized issue in developing countries, but the association between HBsAg positivity and adverse maternal outcomes remains uncertain. To examine the association between HBsAg positivity during pregnancy and adverse maternal outcomes, a retrospective cohort study was conducted in Sichuan province, China. Deliveries were recorded from six hospitals between 1 January 2009 and 31 December 2010. Pre‐eclampsia, gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM), postpartum haemorrhage (PPH), intrahepatic cholestasis, Caesarean section and pla...
