My post yesterday on the lunkhead senator from Wisconsin inspired some thoughts about Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) and the disease it causes, called Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome or AIDS. The syndrome got its name before the viral cause was discovered, which is why it's called a syndrome, the word for a collection of symptoms when the cause is unknown or unspecified. It might be better to call the disease simply HIV disease, as it can have symptoms other than immunodeficiency, and many people nowadays do just that. I spent much of my career in public health, and then in academic research, focusing on HIV.&n...

Conclusion It has been postulated that male foetal loss in pregnant women during stressful periods may occur in accordance with the Trivers-Willard Hypothesis. Several studies have found significant effects after terrorist attacks in the United States (as well as in other countries) but this study failed to do so. This may be due to several reasons including underpowered datasets and the possibility that populations may be becoming relatively immured to these events.

CONCLUSION: During the second stage of labour women experienced overwhelming sensations which made evident the importance of trusting relationships with those involved in the birth. The women were in a transformative state between pregnancy and motherhood where experiences of being involved and being provided with information and guidance were all considered crucial. Continuous support should be offered to women during the second stage of labour.PMID:34872874 | DOI:10.1016/j.wombi.2021.11.005

Augustine (AUG) is a blood group system comprising four antigens: AUG1, AUG2 (Ata), and AUG4 are of very high frequency; AUG3 is of very low frequency. These antigens are located on ENT1, an equilibrative nucleoside transporter encoded bySLC19A1. AUG antibodies are of clinical relevance in blood transfusion and pregnancy: anti-AUG2 have caused haemolytic transfusion reactions; the only anti-AUG3 was associated with severe haemolytic disease of the fetus and newborn. ENT1 is present in almost all human tissues. It facilitates the transfer of purine and pyrimidine nucleosides and is responsible for the majority of adenosine ...
