No association of TP53 codon 72 SNP with male infertility: a study in a Chinese population and a meta-analysis.

No association of TP53 codon 72 SNP with male infertility: a study in a Chinese population and a meta-analysis. Syst Biol Reprod Med. 2015 Mar 6;:1-6 Authors: Chan Y, Jiang H, Ma L, Chen J, Li D, Meng Y, Luo Y, Tang W Abstract Abstract Genetic polymorphisms may affect human male fertility. Even though TP53 plays a role in spermatogenesis we know little about the association of the functional polymorphism at codon 72 of TP53 with respect to susceptibility to male infertility. We conducted a case-control study to investigate this association in a Chinese population and performed a meta-analysis in different populations to clarify this association. The single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) of TP53 codon 72 (rs1042522 G>C) was genotyped by PCR-RFLP in 83 Chinese male infertility patients and 401 healthy controls. Meta-analysis was performed using the data from four currently available studies. The data from our study were overlayed using the v.9.0 STATA software package. We observed no association between the TP53 codon 72 polymorphism and male infertility (p = 0.84, OR = 1.04, 95% CI, 0.74-1.45). Meta-analysis confirmed the case-control result that there was no significant association between the codon 72 polymorphism of TP53 and male infertility (Pro vs. Arg; p = 0.31, OR = 0.86, 95% CI, 0.65-1.15; Pro/Pro vs. Arg-carriers; p = 0.65, OR = 0.91, 95% CI, 0.61-1.36; Pro-carr...

Abnormal uterine bleeding (AUB) affects up to two thirds of women on anticoagulation (AC) therapy. In women on AC for venous thromboembolism (VTE), AUB is linked to recurrent VTE, likely due to interrupted therapy. Treatment options for anticoagulant-associated AUB (AA-AUB) are limited, as estrogen-containing treatments increase thrombotic risk and endometrial ablation or hysterectomy lead to infertility. While uterine artery embolization (UAE) is a well-established treatment for symptomatic fibroids, its role in acute AA-AUB is limited to case reports.

Luigi Mondello Rapid evaporative-ionization mass spectrometry (REIMS) coupled with an electroknife as a sampling device was recently employed in many application fields to obtain a rapid characterization of different samples without any need for extraction or cleanup procedures. In the present research, REIMS was used to obtain a metabolic profiling of the Kigelia africana fruit, thus extending the applicability of such a technique to the investigation of phytochemical constituents. In particular, the advantages of REIMS linked to a typical electrosurgical handpiece were applied for a comprehensive screening of this b...

Authors: Brännström M Abstract Uterus transplantation is a novel treatment to treat uterine factor infertility. This type of infertility is due to absence of an anatomical or functional uterus. This review covers important research findings in the field, and this research formed the base for introduction of uterus transplantation as an experimental clinical procedure. The basic animal-research investigated central facets such as surgery, immunosuppression, ischemia-reperfusion injury, rejection, and fertility. The first clinical uterus transplantation trial was started in 2013 and this was a live donor tr...
