Epub 2021 Oct 21.ABSTRACTElectrochemical sensing methods monitor biomolecules because of their specificity, rapid response, lower cost, and automation. Hemoglobin is an abundant protein in the human body and is correlated with various physiological processes. Levels of hemoglobin in blood are associated with anemia in pregnant women. In this research, a non-enzymatic sensor based on NiTe nanorods is developed for the detection and quantification of hemoglobin (Hb) from anemic pregnant patients. NiTe nanorods are synthesized by the single-step method. A...

AbstractPregnant and postpartum individuals are known to have an elevated risk of severe COVID-19 compared to their non-pregnant counterparts. Vaccination is the most important intervention to protect these populations from COVID-19-related morbidity and mortality. An added benefit of maternal COVID-19 vaccination is transfer of maternal immunity to newborns and infants, for whom a vaccine is not (yet) approved. Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2)-specific binding and neutralizing antibodies are present in infant cord blood and breast milk following natural maternal infection and transfer of matern...

AbstractKey Content: The UK has one of the highest rates of opioid misuse in Europe, with dramatic escalation over the last decade. Much of this drug use in women coincides with childbearing age and continues into pregnancy. Opioid misuse in pregnancy is associated with considerable obstetric and neonatal complications. Management of women with opioid misuse in pregnancy requires a multidisciplinary approach with specialist input from drug services. Opioid substitution regimes with methadone or buprenorphine during pregnancy have been shown to improve perinatal outcomes and the woman ’s compliance with care.Lear...
