Lactoferrin or ferrous salts for iron deficiency anemia in pregnancy: a meta-analysis of randomized trials.
In conclusion, for pregnant women with iron deficiency anemia, daily oral bovine lactoferrin is just as good as ferrous sulfate in improving hematological parameters with fewer gastrointestinal side effects. Thereby, lactoferrin should be the iron replacement agent of choice for treatment of IDA in pregnancy. (Source: European Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology and Reproductive Biology)

Outcomes of mifepristone usage for cervical ripening and induction of labour in full-term pregnancy. Randomized controlled trial
Conclusion Mifepristone was efficient on inducing cervical ripening and labour in full-term pregnancy. There were no significant difference in main maternal and neonatal outcomes between mifepristone use and expectant management. There were no serious adverse side effects of mifepristone, but there were some features of the course of labor, like more painful uterine contractions and trend of higher rate of cephalopelvic disproportion, that might be directly related to the mifepristone action.

Association of FAS-670A/G and FASL-844C/T polymorphisms with idiopathic azoospermia in Western Iran
Conclusion Our findings speculate that the FASL-844C/T polymorphism is associated with the risk of male infertility and this variation can be considered as a genetic risk factor for idiopathic azoospermia among Western Iranian men population. Summing up, these data indicated that the genetic variations in FAS/FASL system have a critical role in spermatogenesis defects and subsequent male infertility.

Pro-inflammatory M1/Th1 type immune network and increased expression of TSG-6 in the eutopic endometrium from women with endometriosis
Conclusions An increased expression of pro-inflammatory type 1 cytokines was demonstrated in the endometrium from endometriosic patients, suggesting an endometrial environment harmful for implantation due to the prevalence of Th1 related immunity. An increased expression of TSG-6 was also demonstrated for the first time. Our findings concur to better define the inflammatory imbalance and the abnormal endometrial receptivity, reported in literature, of the eutopic endometrium of women affected by endometriosis.
