VIDEO: International Women's Day Panel on diversity in health evidence synthesis

On International Women's Day 2021 we discussed and highlighted minority women and young investigators working in health science and evidence synthesis.  Watch the recording to hear about their career paths, who has inspired them, and what advice they have for other women interested in or working in health evidence synthesis.  Learn about Cochrane’s role in evidence Synthesis and how anyone can get involved.Each year Cochrane hosts an event in the name of Anne Anderson, a pioneering woman in health evidence synthesis.   In the past it's been the'Anne Anderson Walk'at the Cochrane Colloquium to raise money for theannual Anne Anderson Award. This year, theCochrane US Network  hosted a virtual panel, which highlighted the stories of five amazing women and kick-off a specialvirtual Anne Anderson walk.    Who was Anne Anderson?Anne Anderson was a contributor to the stream of thinking and effort that gave birth to evidence-based health care. A clinically qualified reproductive physiologist, Anne had an active interest in women ’s health, co-editing the first edition of Women’s Problems in General Practice with Ann McPherson and contributed to Effectiveness and Satisfaction in Antenatal Care (1982), edited by Murray Enkin and Iain Chalmers. She was discussing with Marc Keirse and Iain Chalmers the possibility of co-edi ting a companion volume on elective birth, however her premature death from breast cancer in 1983 ended her i...

ConclusionsIn this study, we showed TEW-7197 and ramucirumab considerably decreased invasiveness, thus EMTness in a panel of diffuse-type GC cell lines including GC PDCs. Taken together, we confirmed that combination of TEW-7197 and ramucirumab reduced tumor spheroid and GC PDC-induced blood vessel formation concomitantly in the spheroid-on-a-chip model.

Systematically mapping the mechanical properties of skin and tissue is useful for biomechanics research and disease diagnostics. For example, later stage breast cancer and lymphoma manifest themselves as hard nodes under the skin. Currently, mechanical measurements are done manually, with a sense of touch or a handheld tool. Manual measurements do not provide quantitative information and vary depending on the skill of the practitioner. Research shows that tactile sensors could be more sensitive than a hand. We propose a method that uses our previously developed skin-crawling robots to noninvasively test the mechanical prop...

David J. BierThe Biden administrationis planning to roll out a  new policy in November that denies the right to travel or immigrate to the United States to anyone in the world who is unvaccinated. It will replace various nonsensical travel bans on Europeans, Chinese, Iranians, Brazilians, South Africans, and Indians, but a majority of the world (57 percent) has not received even a  single shot of any of the vaccines, andonly 1.9 percent of people in low ‐​income countries have received at least one dose. This includes pretty much the entire continent of Africa.Currently, everyone —vaccinated or not...

This study aimed to determine the relationship between domestic violence against women, adaptation to pregnancy, and maternal-fetal antenatal attachment.Design and MethodsThe study consisted of 385 pregnant women who were referred to the antenatal clinics of a public hospital in eastern Turkey. The data were collected using the Domestic Violence against Women Scale (DVAWS), the Maternal-Fetal Antenatal Attachment Scale (MAAS), and the Prenatal Self-Evaluation Questionnaire (PSEQ) to assess adaptation to pregnancy.FindingsPregnant women were exposed to low level of violence (Mean  ± SD: 64.42  &p...

AbstractNumerous natural and synthetic substances have effects on reproduction through several mechanisms. This review aims to summarize the impact of green tea (GT),yucca schidigera (YS) extract,curcuma longa (CL), adenosine 3 ′,5′-cyclic monophosphate (cAMP) and isobutyl-1-methyl-xanthine (IBMX) stimulators on rabbit reproduction performance. To obtain a comprehensive overview of this topic, the keywords “reproduction,” “substances,” “spermatogenesis,” “embryogenesis,”hormonal profil“, “green tea” , “yucca schidigera” were searched ...
