Clinical chorioamnionitis at term IX: in vivo evidence of intra-amniotic inflammasome activation.

J Perinat Med 2018 Nov 9. Epub 2018 Nov 9.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Wayne State University School of Medicine, Detroit, MI, USA.

Background The inflammasome has been implicated in the mechanisms that lead to spontaneous labor at term. However, whether the inflammasome is activated in the amniotic cavity of women with clinical chorioamnionitis at term is unknown. Herein, by measuring extracellular ASC [apoptosis-associated speck-like protein containing a C-terminal caspase recruitment domain (CARD)], we investigated whether there is in vivo inflammasome activation in amniotic fluid of patients with clinical chorioamnionitis at term with sterile intra-amniotic inflammation and in those with intra-amniotic infection.

Update on uterine tachysystole.

J Perinat Med 2018 Oct 20. Epub 2018 Oct 20.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Mount Sinai Hospital, Toronto, ON, Canada.

Uterine tachysystole (TS) is a potentially significant intrapartum complication seen most commonly in induced or augmented labors but may also occur in women with spontaneous labor. When it occurs, maternal and perinatal complications can arise if not identified and managed promptly by obstetric care providers. Over recent years, new definitions of the condition have facilitated further research into the field, which has been synthesized to inform clinical management guidelines and protocols. Read More

J Perinat Med 2018 Jul 18. Epub 2018 Jul 18.

Department of Pediatric Research, Division of Paediatric and Adolescent Medicine, University of Oslo, Oslo University Hospital HF, Oslo, Norway.

Background: 8-Oxoguanine DNA-glycosylase 1 (OGG1) and mutY DNA glycosylase (MUTYH) are crucial in the repair of the oxidative DNA lesion 7,8-dihydro-8-oxoguanine caused by hypoxia-reoxygenation injury. Our objective was to compare the gene expression changes after hypoxia-reoxygenation in neonatal Ogg1-Mutyh double knockout mice (OM) and wildtype mice (WT), and study the gene response in OM after hyperoxic reoxygenation compared to normoxic.

Methods: Postnatal day 7 mice were subjected to 2 h of hypoxia (8% O2) followed by reoxygenation in either 60% O2 or air, and sacrificed right after completed reoxygenation (T0h) or after 72 h (T72h). Read More

Background: Mothers of preterm (PT) infants have difficulty providing adequate quantities of human milk (HM) for their babies during their hospital stay. The macronutrient content in HM changes over time, varying across and within individual mothers. Research aim: To describe the intake of mothers' own milk (MOM) and its composition according to gestational (GA) and postnatal age (PNA) in infants born <32 weeks' GA and to correlate them with neonatal weight, length and morbidities.

Ductus venosus agenesis and fetal malformations: what can we expect? - a systematic review of the literature.

J Perinat Med 2018 Jun 27. Epub 2018 Jun 27.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Centro Hospitalar de S. João, Faculty of Medicine, University of Porto, Porto, Portugal.

Objectives: The ductus venosus agenesis (DVA) is a rare condition with a variable prognosis that relies partly on the presence of associated conditions. The purpose of our study was to analyze the literature regarding the post-natal outcome of fetuses with DVA associated with fetal malformations, in order to discuss the best management options for couples.

Data Sources: We performed a systematic review of the literature of MEDLINE and SCOPUS electronic databases in a 25-year period from 1992 to September 2017. Read More
