Children and Family Research Center, National Taiwan University, Taipei, Taiwan.

Aims: The present study aims to investigate the utilization pattern of prenatal care and correlates for women with opioid use disorders (OUD) in Taiwan.

Method: Using the data linkage between the Methadone Maintenance Treatment (MMT) register with national health insurance, national birth notification system, and birth registration system, we identified 1712 pregnancies with 20 or more gestational weeks from women enrolled in the MMT (heroin-exposed: receiving no methadone treatment during pregnancy, n = 1053 by 882 women; methadone-treated: receiving methadone for at least one day during pregnancy, n = 659 by 574 women) and their 1:10 matched pregnancies from 17,060 women without substance use disorder in the period of 2004-2013. The generalized linear mixed models with negative binomial and logit distributions were performed to evaluate the relationship between individual sociodemographic, health, and addiction treatment characteristics with the number of prenatal visits and receiving prenatal care in the first trimester (i.

Multiple dimensions of interoceptive awareness are associated with facets of body image in British adults.

Body Image 2019 Feb 13;29:6-16. Epub 2019 Feb 13.

School of Psychology and Sports Science, Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge, UK; Centre for Psychological Medicine, Perdana University, Serdang, Malaysia.

Previous research has identified a relationship between interoception and body image, where lower interoceptive awareness (IA) is associated with negative body image. However, relationships between facets of interoception and positive body image remain unexplored, and men and older adults remain underrepresented. To overcome these limitations, we assessed relationships between multiple dimensions of interoceptive awareness (IA) and multiple facets of body image in community adults. Read More

Maternal employment and child health in Nepal: The importance of job type and timing across the child's first five years.

Soc Sci Med 2019 Feb 6;224:94-105. Epub 2019 Feb 6.

Population Studies Center, University of Michigan, 426 Thompson Street, P.O. Box 1248, Ann Arbor, MI, 48106-1248, USA; Institute for Social and Environmental Research Nepal, Bharatpur Metropolitan City, Ward No. 15, Chitwan, Nepal. Electronic address:

The increase in female labor force participation (FLFP) in the paid labor market since the mid-1900s is one of the most pronounced family transitions and increasingly a global phenomenon. While this may improve income and bargaining power of the women, it may also increase stress and decrease time with children. Using the Chitwan Valley Family Study in Nepal, we explore the consequences of this transition for children's health by combining newly collected data on child health outcomes, quarterly data on women's employment, and data on households and neighborhoods.

Acta Obstet Gynecol Scand 2019 Feb 16. Epub 2019 Feb 16.

Research Laboratory on Human Reproduction and Fertility Clinic, CUB-Erasme, Université Libre de Bruxelles, Brussels, Belgium.

Clinicians should provide fertility counseling to all patients receiving gonadotoxic treatment. International scientific societies have mainly focused on oncological patients, and fewer efforts have been made to apply these recommendations to women diagnosed with benign disease (eg benign hematological diseases, auto-immune diseases, and gynecological or genetic disorders). However, these indications account for 8% to 19% of the demand for fertility preservation. Read More

Just choice: a Danielsian analysis of the aims and scope of prenatal screening for fetal abnormalities.

Med Health Care Philos 2019 Feb 15. Epub 2019 Feb 15.

Department of Health, Ethics and Society, GROW School for Oncology and Developmental Biology, Faculty of Health, Medicine and Life Sciences, Maastricht University, 6200 MD, Maastricht, The Netherlands.

Developments in Non-Invasive Prenatal Testing (NIPT) and cell-free fetal DNA analysis raise the possibility that antenatal services may soon be able to support couples in non-invasively testing for, and diagnosing, an unprecedented range of genetic disorders and traits coded within their unborn child's genome. Inevitably, this has prompted debate within the bioethics literature about what screening options should be offered to couples for the purpose of reproductive choice. In relation to this problem, the European Society of Human Genetics (ESHG) and American Society of Human Genetics (ASHG) tentatively recommend that any expansion of this type of screening, as facilitated by NIPT, should be limited to serious congenital and childhood disorders.

Temporal Stability of Sexual Excitation and Sexual Inhibition in Women.

Arch Sex Behav 2019 Feb 15. Epub 2019 Feb 15.

Clinical Psychology and Psychotherapy, Mental Health Research and Treatment Center, Ruhr-Universität Bochum, Massenbergstr. 9-13, 44787, Bochum, Germany.

The dual control model of sexual response proposes two factors, sexual excitation (SE) and sexual inhibition (SI), that aim to predict sexual behavior and response. While SE and SI are described as stable traits that influence sexuality-related outcomes such as sexual function or sexual risk taking, only a few studies have presented data on the stability of these factors. The aim of this study was to evaluate the temporal stability of SE and SI, and to investigate whether changes in sexual function or partnership status influence SE and SI in a longitudinal sample of women.

Sphingomyelin synthase 2 promotes an aggressive breast cancer phenotype by disrupting the homoeostasis of ceramide and sphingomyelin.

Cell Death Dis 2019 Feb 15;10(3):157. Epub 2019 Feb 15.

Department of General Surgery, Zhujiang Hospital, Southern Medical University, Guangzhou, China.

Breast cancer is the most common type of carcinoma in women worldwide, but the mechanisms underlying tumour development and progression remain unclear. Sphingomyelin synthase 2 (SGMS2) is a crucial regulator involved in ceramide (Cer) and sphingomyelin (SM) homoeostasis that is mostly studied for its role in lipid metabolism. Our primary study indicated that high SGMS2 expression is associated with breast cancer metastasis. Read More
