RNAseq of amniotic fluid cell-free RNA: a discovery phase study of the pathophysiology of congenital cytomegalovirus infection
Congenital cytomegalovirus (cCMV) is the most common perinatal infection and a significant cause of sensorineural hearing loss, cerebral palsy and neurodevelopmental disability. There is a paucity of human gene expression studies examining the pathophysiology of CMV infection. (Source: American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology)

Placental Vascular Malperfusion Lesions in Fetal Congenital Heart Disease
Fetuses with congenital heart disease are at increased risk of perinatal morbidity and mortality, which is highly influenced by their prenatal health. Placental function is vital for the health of the fetus but increased rates of pathologic lesions of the placenta have been observed in pregnancies complicated by fetal congenital heart disease.

Racism and Perinatal Health Inequities Research: Where we have been and where we should go
For over a century, substantial racial and ethnic inequities in perinatal health outcomes have persisted despite technical clinical advances and changes in public health practice that lowered the overall incidence of morbidity. Race is a social construct and not an inherent biological or genetic reality; therefore, racial differences in health outcomes represent the consequences of structural racism, or the inequitable distribution of opportunities for health along racialized lines. Clinicians and scientists in obstetrics and gynecology have a responsibility to work to eliminate health inequities for Black, Brown, and Indi...

Gestational diabetes mellitus and COVID-19: results from the CRONOS study
Gestational diabetes mellitus is one of the most frequent pregnancy complications with a global prevalence of 13.4% in 2021. Pregnant women with COVID-19 and gestational diabetes mellitus are 3.3 times more likely to be admitted to an intensive care unit compared to women without gestational diabetes mellitus. Data on the association of gestational diabetes mellitus with maternal and neonatal pregnancy outcomes in SARS-CoV-2-infected pregnant women are lacking.

Oral Phenazopyridine vs Intravesical Lidocaine for Bladder OnabotulinumtoxinA Analgesia: A Randomized Controlled Trial (OPIL)
The efficacy of intradetrusor onabotulinumtoxinA injections for management of idiopathic overactive bladder has been well established. The injections are typically performed in the office setting utilizing local analgesia, most commonly a 20-30 minute intravesical instillation of lidocaine. There is limited data evaluating alternative bladder analgesics. (Source: American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology)
