Conclusion: Our findings revealed that in utero SHS exposures exacerbate lung responses to adult-induced emphysema, asthma, and lung cancer. Our data show that MMP12 is up-regulated at the gene and protein levels in three distinct adult lung disease models following in utero SHS exposures, suggesting that MMP12 is central to in utero SHS-aggravated lung responses.

BackgroundWhether female BMI impacts the DNA repair ability in the oocytes after fertilization has not been investigated. The aim of this study is to assess the early embryo quality and reproductive outcomes of oocytes from overweight women when fertilized with sperm with varying degrees of DNA fragmentation.MethodsA total number of 1,612 patients undergoing fresh autologous in vitro fertilization (IVF) cycles was included. These patients were divided into two groups according to maternal body mass index (BMI): normal weight group (18.5–24.9 kg/m2; n=1187; 73.64%) and overweight group (≥25 kg/m2; n=425; 26.36%). E...

Hypertension can be induced by the disruption of factors in blood pressure regulation. This includes several systems such as Neurohumoral, Renin-angiotensin-aldosterone, the Circadian clock, and melatonin production, which can induce elevation and non-dipping blood pressure. Melatonin has a supraphysiological role as a chronobiotic agent and modulates vascular system processes via pro/antiangiogenic factors, inflammation, the immune system, and oxidative stress regulation. An elevation of melatonin production is observed during pregnancy, modulating the placenta and fetus’s physiological functions. Their impairment p...

We present the latest knowledge, a holistic approach to the biology, histology, imaging, and management concerning post-CS scars based on our cases, which were treated in the Department of Pregnancy and Pathology of Pregnancy in the Medical University of Lublin, Poland. In our study, we present images of tissue samples of areas with a cicatrix in the uterus, and ultrasound and MRI images of CSP. We discuss the advances in the biology of the post-CS scar tissue, the prevention techniques used to repair the scar defect (niche) before the pregnancy, and the treatment of different complications of CSP, such as the rupture of t...

We examined peripheral blood plasma and determined a small proportion of proteins strongly associated with a specific type of fetopathy or anatomical malfunction. Most of the examined markers participate in critical processes at different stages of embryogenesis and regulate various phases of morphogenesis. Alterations in CDCL5 had a significant impact on mRNA splicing and DNA repair. Patients with central nervous system defects were characterized by the greatest depletion (ca. 7% of the basal level) of DFP3, a neurotrophic factor needed for the proper specialization of oligodendrocytes. Dysregulation of noncanonical wingl...

We report a rare case of gastroschisis with extracorporeal liver suspected on late first trimester ultrasound and confirmed with second trimester ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging in one fetus in a twin pregnancy. Liver herniation is common in omphalocele, a membrane-covered abdominal wall defect associated with other congenital anomalies. However, it is highly uncommon in gastroschisis, an uncovered abdominal wall defect aside of the cord insertion. Presence of liver herniation complicates prenatal differentiation between omphalocele and gastroschisis. The twins were born at 31 weeks' gestation due to preterm labo...
