What contraception do women use after experiencing complications from abortion? an analysis of cohort records of 18,688 postabortion care clients in Tanzania.

BMC Womens Health 2019 Jan 28;19(1):22. Epub 2019 Jan 28.

Ministry of Health, Community Development, Gender, Elderly and Children (MOHCDGEC), PO Box 9083, Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.

Background: The family planning component of postabortion care (PAC) is critical, as it helps women to prevent unintended pregnancies and reduce future incidence of life-threatening unsafe abortion. In Tanzania, PAC was recently decentralized from tertiary-level district hospitals to primary health care dispensaries in four regions of the country. This analysis describes interventions used to improve access to high quality PAC services during decentralization; examines results and factors that contribute to PAC clients' voluntary uptake of contraception; and develops recommendations for improving postabortion contraceptive services.

Service provider perceptions of the trend in severity of symptoms and complications in women admitted following an incomplete abortion.

J Family Med Prim Care 2018 Nov-Dec;7(6):1521-1526

Department of Reproductive Health and Research, World Health Organization, Geneva, Switzerland.

Background: Sri Lankan abortion law which dates back to the year 1883, and still unchanged, only allows a legal termination when the mother's life is in danger. Many studies undertaken in the country estimates that even in the light of such a backdrop, and with a high contraceptive prevalence rate, many women attempt an abortion when faced with an unwanted pregnancy. This study aims to describe the changes in abortion-related complications in the country over a period of time and explore the reasons for any changes in severity of symptoms among women hospitalized following an abortion based on the perceptions of healthcare service providers.

Medical and surgical abortion for women living with HIV.

Cochrane Database Syst Rev 2018 12 19;12:CD012834. Epub 2018 Dec 19.

Department of International Health, Social and Behavioral Interventions Program, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, 615 N. Wolfe Street, Suite E5033, Baltimore, Maryland, USA, 21205.

Background: The World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines for safe abortion recommend medical abortion with mifepristone and misoprostol or surgical abortion with vacuum aspiration or dilation and evacuation as safe and effective options for women. However, no specific clinical considerations are stipulated within these guidelines for women living with HIV. Concerns have been raised that women living with HIV may be at greater risk of adverse abortion outcomes compared to HIV-uninfected women due to immunosuppression, high rates of co-infection with other sexually transmitted infections, and possible contraindications between medications used for medical abortion and antiretroviral therapy regimens.

Disturbance of the Epithelial-Mesenchymal Transition as a Cause of the Defective Development of Human Spontaneous Abortions with Abnormal Karyotype.

Authors:
V I Kukharenko

Bull Exp Biol Med 2018 Aug 18;165(4):581-583. Epub 2018 Aug 18.

V. I. Kulakov National Medical Research Center for Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Perinatology, Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation, Moscow, Russia.

Genetic program regulating epithelial-mesenchymal transition is activated at the early stages of embryogenesis. Abnormal karyotype of the embryo disrupts the fundamental process of epithelial-mesenchymal transition, which is seen from incomplete morphological rearrangement and reduced migration capacity of cells, as well as low level of expression of epithelial-mesenchymal transition markers (fibronectin, collagen, and glycosaminoglycans). Disturbances of the epithelial-mesenchymal transition affect the proliferative potential of cells with aberrant karyotype, which contributes to the delay of embryonic development and correlates with the formation of abnormal phenotype in carriers of chromosomal abnormalities.

Controversies in family planning: persistently elevated serum human chorionic gonadotropin levels after aspiration abortion.

Contraception 2018 Dec 7;98(6):541-543. Epub 2018 Aug 7.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, University of California, Davis, Sacramento, CA, USA.

Low but rising serum human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) levels occur infrequently after an induced abortion. Because this scenario rarely occurs after suction aspiration, clinicians may have higher suspicion for an uncommon diagnosis. The differential diagnosis includes both common and uncommon diagnoses, such as incomplete abortion, heterotopic or ectopic pregnancy, a new intrauterine pregnancy and gestational trophoblastic neoplasia.

Identifying National Availability of Abortion Care and Distance From Major US Cities: Systematic Online Search.

J Med Internet Res 2018 May 14;20(5):e186. Epub 2018 May 14.

Advancing New Standards in Reproductive Health, Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive Sciences, University of California, San Francisco, Oakland, CA, United States.

Background: Abortion is a common medical procedure, yet its availability has become more limited across the United States over the past decade. Women who do not know where to go for abortion care may use the internet to find abortion facility information, and there appears to be more online searches for abortion in states with more restrictive abortion laws. While previous studies have examined the distances women must travel to reach an abortion provider, to our knowledge no studies have used a systematic online search to document the geographic locations and services of abortion facilities.

Mol Genet Genomic Med 2018 05 24;6(3):370-381. Epub 2018 Mar 24.

Dr. Lal PathLabs Ltd., New Delhi, India.

Background: Karyotype determination has a central role in the genetic workup of pregnancy loss, as aneuploidy (trisomy and monosomy) and polyploidy (triploidy and tetraploidy) are the cause in at least 50% of first trimester, 25% of second trimester, and 11% of third trimester miscarriages. There are several limitations with the current approaches of obtaining a karyotype using traditional cytogenetics, fluorescence in situ hybridization with a limited number of probes, and chromosomal microarray. These include culture failure, incomplete results, lower sensitivity, and longer reporting time. Read More

Recurrent pregnancy loss evaluation combined with 24-chromosome microarray of miscarriage tissue provides a probable or definite cause of pregnancy loss in over 90% of patients.

Hum Reprod 2018 04;33(4):579-587

Division of Reproductive Endocrinology, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Memphis, TN 38120, USA.

Study Question: Will the addition of 24-chromosome microarray analysis on miscarriage tissue combined with the standard American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) evaluation for recurrent miscarriage explain most losses?

Summary Answer: Over 90% of patients with recurrent pregnancy loss (RPL) will have a probable or definitive cause identified when combining genetic testing on miscarriage tissue with the standard ASRM evaluation for recurrent miscarriage.

What Is Known Already: RPL is estimated to occur in 2-4% of reproductive age couples. A probable cause can be identified in approximately 50% of patients after an ASRM recommended workup including an evaluation for parental chromosomal abnormalities, congenital and acquired uterine anomalies, endocrine imbalances and autoimmune factors including antiphospholipid syndrome.

About 140,000 induced abortions are estimated every year, despite there being a restrictive abortion law in place. This leads to complications, such as incomplete abortions, which need to be treated to avoid further harm. Read More

Equid herpesvirus 8: Complete genome sequence and association with abortion in mares.

PLoS One 2018 7;13(2):e0192301. Epub 2018 Feb 7.

Virology Unit, The Irish Equine Centre, Johnstown, Naas, County Kildare, Ireland.

Equid herpesvirus 8 (EHV-8), formerly known as asinine herpesvirus 3, is an alphaherpesvirus that is closely related to equid herpesviruses 1 and 9 (EHV-1 and EHV-9). The pathogenesis of EHV-8 is relatively little studied and to date has only been associated with respiratory disease in donkeys in Australia and horses in China. A single EHV-8 genome sequence has been generated for strain Wh in China, but is apparently incomplete and contains frameshifts in two genes. Read More

Autophagy controls resource allocation and protein storage accumulation in Arabidopsis seeds.

J Exp Bot 2018 Mar;69(6):1403-1414

Institut Jean-Pierre Bourgin, INRA, AgroParisTech, CNRS, Université Paris-Saclay, Versailles, France.

Autophagy is essential for nutrient recycling and plays a fundamental role in seed production and grain filling in plants. Autophagy participates in nitrogen remobilization at the whole-plant level, and the seeds of autophagy mutants present abnormal C and N contents relative to wild-type (WT) plants. It is well known that autophagy (ATG) genes are induced in leaves during senescence; however, expression of such genes in seeds has not yet been reported. Read More

Undiagnosed Primary Hyperparathyroidism and Recurrent Miscarriage: The First Prospective Pilot Study.

World J Surg 2018 03;42(3):639-645

Department of Endocrine and Thyroid Surgery, Hammersmith Hospital, Imperial College London, London, UK.

Background: Primary hyperparathyroidism (pHPT) in pregnancy is reported to be associated with significant maternal and foetal complications and an up to threefold increase in the risk of miscarriage. However, the true incidence of pHPT in pregnancy, complete and miscarried, is unknown and there are no data on the prevalence of undiagnosed pHPT in recurrent miscarriage (RM) (≥3 consecutive miscarriages under 24-week gestation). This is the first prospective study aiming to establish the prevalence of undiagnosed pHPT in RM. Read More
