Estrogen Discovery Could Shed New Light on Fertility Problems

Tue, 12 Dec 2017 12:05:19 EST

Estrogen produced in the brain is necessary for ovulation in monkeys, according to researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison who have upended the traditional understanding of the hormonal cascade that leads to release of an egg from the ovaries. Their findings may reveal the cause of some undiagnosed infertility problems and point the way to new methods of birth control.

Bioethicists Call for Caution in Use of Rare Experimental Fetal Therapy

Mon, 11 Dec 2017 08:00:08 EST

(image) Citing uncertainties about the risks and benefits of an experimental therapy for fetuses whose kidneys do not develop, bioethicists at Johns Hopkins and a team of medical experts are calling for rigorous clinical trials in the use of a potential treatment, known as amnioinfusion.

Tue, 14 Nov 2017 08:00:00 EST

(image) A white paper designed to provide New York State healthcare providers and communities with the tools to manage and reduce opioid use disorder in pregnancy will be released by the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.

Closing the Rural Health Gap: Media Update from RWJF and Partners on Rural Health Disparities

Wed, 08 Nov 2017 08:55:00 EST

(image) Rural counties continue to rank lowest among counties across the U.S., in terms of health outcomes. A group of national organizations including the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the National 4-H Council are leading the way to close the rural health gap.

IUDs May Have a Surprising Benefit: Protection Against Cervical Cancer

Tue, 07 Nov 2017 17:00:58 EST

(image) A new study from the Keck School of Medicine of USC has found that IUD use is associated with a dramatic decrease in the incidence of cervical cancer.

Biologic Use During Pregnancy May Not Increase Opportunistic Infection Risks in Infants

Sat, 04 Nov 2017 19:30:00 EST

Using a biologic therapy to manage rheumatoid arthritis may not significantly increase an infant's risk for developing opportunistic infections like pneumonia, meningitis, and tuberculosis, according to new research findings presented this week at the 2017 ACR/ARHP Annual Meeting in San Diego.

Length of Incision May Affect Pain After Cesarean Delivery

Sat, 21 Oct 2017 13:15:00 EST

Both short and long surgical incisions for cesarean births are associated with increased pain after delivery, suggests a study being presented at the ANESTHESIOLOGY(r) 2017 annual meeting.

Risk of Caesarean Section Is Heritable

Mon, 16 Oct 2017 15:00:00 EST

(image) Women born by Caesarean section due to a fetopelvic disproportion (FDP) are more than twice as likely to develop FDP when giving birth than women born naturally. This is the conclusion of a study by a team of evolutionary biologists at the University of Vienna headed by Philipp Mitteroecker. Using a mathematical model, the team was able to explain the paradoxical phenomenon that natural selection did not lead to the reduction in the rates of obstructed labour. Empirical data also support that the regular use of C-sections has already triggered an evolutionary increase of FPD rates.

How Fever in Early Pregnancy Causes Heart, Facial Birth Defects

Tue, 10 Oct 2017 14:00:00 EST

(image) Researchers have known for decades that fevers in the first trimester of pregnancy increase risk for some heart defects and facial deformities such as cleft lip or palate. Exactly how this happens is unclear. Duke researchers now have evidence indicating that the fever itself, not its root source, is what interferes with the development of the heart and jaw during the first three to eight weeks of pregnancy.

Ovarian Cancer: Risk Factors, Symptoms, Diagnosis and Treatment

Tue, 19 Sep 2017 15:50:22 EST

(image) Ovarian cancer is the 9th most common cancer in women and although it only accounts for approximately 3 percent of cancers in women, it is responsible for the most deaths of any cancer involving the female reproductive tract. The American Cancer Society estimates 22,440 new ovarian cancers will be diagnosed and 14,080 deaths due to ovarian cancer will occur in the United States in 2017.

Breast Cancer Patients Who Freeze Their Eggs See No Delay for Chemotherapy

Thu, 14 Sep 2017 09:45:56 EST

(image) Women who receive a breast cancer diagnosis while they are still young enough to bear children can take time to freeze their eggs and embryos without fear of delaying their cancer treatment, according to research by UC San Francisco scientists who have helped develop a faster fertility preservation technique that can achieve in two weeks what used to take a month or longer.
