Intrauterine transfusion of a hydropic fetus with anemia due to a giant chorioangioma: A case report
We describe a case of a large chorioangioma (>4cm) diagnosed at 30 weeks of gestation causing severe fetal anemia and hydrops. An intrauterine blood transfusion was performed at 31 weeks with reversal of the anemia and hydrops. The neonate was born at 37 weeks showing respiratory distress syndrome that required neonatal intensive care unit admission but was discharged at 30 days of life. Further evaluation at two months of age showed no signs of abnormal neurodevelopment. When timely indicated, intrauterine transfusion of a hydropic fetus with anemia due to a giant chorioangioma is a potentially life-saving therapy that...

Role of inflammatory factors in the etiology and treatment of recurrent implantation failure
Reprod Biol. 2022 Sep 23;22(4):100698. doi: 10.1016/j.repbio.2022.100698. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTRecurrent implantation failure (RIF) is characterized by the absence of implantation after high-grade embryos are transferred to the endometrium by at least three in vitro fertilization cycles. It is one of the most important factors contributing to reproductive failure. After numerous barriers have been overcome to obtain good-quality embryos, RIF causes extreme distress and frustration in women and couples. In recent years, significant progress has been made in understanding how inflammatory factors, which include pro-...

Melatonin through blockade of Hif-1 α signaling mediates the anti-fibrosis under hypoxia in canine Sertoli cells
In this study we evaluate melatonin levels, and its synthesizing enzymes, AANAT and HIOMT expression patterns in canine cryptorchidism and contralateral normal testis. Results show abdominal testes presented low melatonin levels and AANAT and HIOMT expression compared with testes located in the scrotum. Moreover, we established a hypoxia-induced fibrosis model in canine Sertoli cells induced by cobalt chloride (CoCl2) and found that melatonin inhibited the EMT markers expression and ECM production as well as Hif-1α expression of Sertoli cells in a dose-dependent manner. Furthermore, use of Lificiguat (synonyms YC-1, Hif-1...

TSH receptor antibodies (TRAb) - A potential new biomarker for endometriosis
CONCLUSION: TRAb IgG and IgM are slightly elevated in patients with endometriosis with no cross-reactivity with other autoantibodies. The results indicate that TRAb is truly elevated and thereby has the potential to be used to support the diagnosing of endometriosis.PMID:36152376 | DOI:10.1016/j.ejogrb.2022.09.013 (Source: Reproductive Biology)

Learning to tango with four (or more): the molecular basis of adaptation to polyploid meiosis
Plant Reprod. 2022 Sep 23. doi: 10.1007/s00497-022-00448-1. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTPolyploidy, which arises from genome duplication, has occurred throughout the history of eukaryotes, though it is especially common in plants. The resulting increased size, heterozygosity, and complexity of the genome can be an evolutionary opportunity, facilitating diversification, adaptation and the evolution of functional novelty. On the other hand, when they first arise, polyploids face a number of challenges, one of the biggest being the meiotic pairing, recombination and segregation of the suddenly more than two copies of each c...

The effect of yoga on sexual function and body image in primiparous pregnant Women: A randomized controlled single-blind study
CONCLUSION: Yoga can have a positive effect on sexual function during pregnancy. However, the effect of yoga on body image during sexual function has not been observed. Midwives can direct pregnant women toward yoga practice to increase the positive effects on sexual function.PMID:36150312 | DOI:10.1016/j.ejogrb.2022.09.014 (Source: Reproductive Biology)
