Both subsets of MCs including MC (tryptase-positive, chymase-positive) and MC (tryptase-positive, chymase-negative) are present in the testis and epididymis. Increased number of MCs, higher levels of MC-released tryptase in testis and seminal plasma of males with fertility problems, and promoting sperm motility in individuals with oligozoospermia after using MC blockers provide evidence that MCs may play a role in male infertility/subfertility disturbances. MC-released tryptase and histamine contribute to the fibrosis and may disrupt spermatogenesis. Read More

Laboratorio de Fisiopatología de la Preñez y el Parto, Centro de Estudios Farmacológicos y Botánicos, CONICET-UBA, Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Maternal lifestyle affects both mother health and pregnancy outcome in humans. Several studies have demonstrated that interventions oriented toward reducing stress and anxiety have positive effects on pregnancy complications such as preeclampsia, excessive gestational weight, gestational diabetes and preterm birth. In this work, we showed that the environmental enrichment (EE), defined as a noninvasive and biologically significant stimulus of the sensory pathway combined with voluntary physical activity, prevented preterm birth (PTB) rate by 40% in an inflammatory mouse model induced by the systemic administration of bacterial lipopolysaccharide (LPS).

Cervical ripening: Why we do what we do.

Authors:
Lisa D Levine

Semin Perinatol 2020 Mar 23;44(2):151216. Epub 2019 Nov 23.

More than 20% of pregnant women have their labor induced and at least half of them will require cervical ripening due to an unfavorable starting cervical exam. The use of cervical ripening methods has been shown to decrease the risk of cesarean delivery when compared to initiating an induction with oxytocin in women with an unfavorable cervix. However, among the different cervical ripening methods themselves, while there may be differences in time to delivery and differences in the safety profile of different cervical ripening methods, there is no clear evidence that any one cervical ripening method reduces the risk of cesarean compared to another method.

MEchanical DIlatation of the Cervix-- in a Scarred uterus (MEDICS): the study protocol of a randomised controlled trial comparing a single cervical catheter balloon and prostaglandin PGE2 for cervical ripening and labour induction following caesarean delivery.

BMJ Open 2019 11 6;9(11):e028896. Epub 2019 Nov 6.

Obstetrics and Gynaecology, National University Hospital, Singapore, Singapore

Introduction: Labour induction in women with a previous caesarean delivery currently uses vaginal prostaglandin E2 (PGE2), which carries the risks of uterine hyperstimulation and scar rupture. We aim to compare the efficacy of mechanical labour induction using a transcervically applied Foley catheter balloon (FCB) with PGE2 in affected women attempting trial of labour after caesarean (TOLAC).

Methods And Analysis: This single-centre non-inferiority prospective, randomised, open, blinded-endpoint study conducted at an academic maternity unit in Singapore will recruit a total of 100 women with one previous uncomplicated caesarean section and no contraindications to vaginal delivery.
