Diagnosing chronic endometritis: when simplification fails to clarify.

Hum Reprod Open 2022 7;2022(3):hoac023. Epub 2022 Jun 7.

Next Fertility IVF Prof. Zech-Bregenz, Bregenz, Austria.

Reproductive immunology has grown in importance in recent years and has even developed into a discipline of its own within the field of reproductive medicine. Many aspects of reproductive failure such as repeated implantation failure or recurrent miscarriages are, meanwhile, seen as a consequence of aberrant expression of immunological factors. This is reflected by the increasing number of tests for assessing and quantifying different immune cell types as well as by a wide range of immune therapies offered to a clientele consisting of desperate patients requesting additional 'IVF tools': first, what is still usually disregarded is the enormous plasticity and fluctuation of most immune cells in the genital tract; second, their still poorly characterized functions in the endometrial cycle: further, their partially unknown role in embryo implantation and in establishing a pregnancy; and third, the fact that one of the fundamental hypotheses of reproductive immunology-of note-the Medawar concept or 'Medawar's Paradox' of semi-allogeneic graft embryo, is partially based on an erroneous assumption, i.

Single-dose versus multiple-dose antibiotics prophylaxis for preventing caesarean section postpartum infections: A randomized controlled trial.

Womens Health (Lond) 2022 Jan-Dec;18:17455057221101071

Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Federal Medical Centre, Keffi, Nigeria.

Background: Caesarean section, a common obstetric surgical procedure, is a major predisposing factor for puerperal infections, requiring the need for antibiotic prophylaxis. Evidence suggests that single-dose antibiotic prophylaxis has comparable efficacy to multiple-dose antibiotic prophylaxis, but with a lower cost and risk of antibiotic resistance. However, single-dose antibiotic prophylaxis after caesarean section is not generally used in many centres in sub-Saharan Africa. Read More

Subclinical endometritis differentially affects the transcriptomic profiles of endometrial glandular, luminal, and stromal cells of postpartum dairy cows.

J Dairy Sci 2022 Jul 28;105(7):6125-6143. Epub 2022 May 28.

Department of Clinical Sciences, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, SLU, PO Box 7054, 750 07 Uppsala, Sweden.

In postpartum dairy cows, subclinical endometritis (SCE) is characterized by persistent endometrial inflammation, which has profound detrimental effects on subsequent reproductive performance. To date, transcriptomic studies related to this condition were either based on biopsy-derived whole-endometrium tissue or endometrial swab or cytobrush samples, thus masking effects of disease on cell type-specific gene expression. This study tested the hypothesis that different endometrial health statuses are associated with distinct transcription profiles of endometrial stromal, glandular, and luminal epithelial cells.

Infectious Inflammatory Processes and the Role of Bioactive Agent Released from Imino-Chitosan Derivatives Experimental and Theoretical Aspects.

Polymers (Basel) 2022 Apr 30;14(9). Epub 2022 Apr 30.

Department of Internal Medicine (Cardiology), "Grigore T. Popa" University of Medicine and Pharmacy, 700115 Iasi, Romania.

The paper focuses on the development of a multifractal theoretical model for explaining drug release dynamics (drug release laws and drug release mechanisms of cellular and channel-type) through scale transitions in scale space correlated with experimental data. The mathematical model has been developed for a hydrogel system prepared from chitosan and an antimicrobial aldehyde via covalent imine bonds. The reversible nature of the imine linkage points for a progressive release of the antimicrobial aldehyde is controlled by the reaction equilibrium shifting to the reagents, which in turn is triggered by aldehyde consumption in the inhibition of the microbial growth.

Obstetrics/Gynecology, West Suburban Medical Center, Chicago, USA.

Placental abruption during induction of labor in females with intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy is not exceptionally common and there are no documented reports of placental prolapse following abruption in the literature. The aim of this study is to discuss the possibility of placental abruption and partial prolapse of a low-lying placenta during a prolonged induction of labor in a female with recurrent intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy following a cholecystectomy. We describe a 31-year-old G4P3003 female with recurrent intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy, with no family history of the condition and surgical history of cholecystectomy, whose induction of labor at 37+3/7 gestational weeks for intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy was complicated by placental abruption and partial prolapse of the low-lying placenta.
