Confined placental mosaicism and the association with pregnancy outcome and fetal growth: a review of the literature.

Hum Reprod Update 2021 May 13. Epub 2021 May 13.

Department of Clinical Genetics, Erasmus MC, University Medical Center, Rotterdam 3015CN, The Netherlands.

Background: Chromosomal mosaicism can be detected in different stages of early life: in cleavage stage embryos, in blastocysts and biopsied cells from blastocysts during preimplantation genetic testing for aneuploidies (PGT-A) and later during prenatal testing, as well as after birth in cord blood. Mosaicism at all different stages can be associated with adverse pregnancy outcomes. There is an onward discussion about whether blastocysts diagnosed as chromosomally mosaic by PGT-A should be considered safe for transfer. Read More

Identification of spectral signature for in situ real-time monitoring of smoltification.

Appl Opt 2021 May;60(14):4127-4134

We describe the use of an optical hyperspectral sensing technique to identify the smoltification status of Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) based on spectral signatures, thus potentially providing smolt producers with an additional tool to verify the osmoregulatory state of salmon. By identifying whether a juvenile salmon is in the biological freshwater stage (parr) or has adapted to the seawater stage (smolt) before transfer to sea, negative welfare impacts and subsequent mortality associated with failed or incorrect identification may be reduced. A hyperspectral imager has been used to collect data in two water flow-through and one recirculating production site in parallel with the standard smoltification evaluations applied at these sites.

Capecitabine as Maintenance Therapy for High-Risk, Resected Colorectal Cancer.

Gastrointest Tumors 2021 Apr 10;8(2):81-86. Epub 2021 Mar 10.

Department of Medicine, West Virginia University, Morgantown, West Virginia, USA.

Introduction: In 2020, colorectal cancer will be the fourth most frequently diagnosed malignant neoplasm and the second leading cause of site-specific, cancer-related deaths in the USA. Notably, 80% of the new cases are, by staging criteria, potentially curable even those with completely resected stage 4 disease. If slightly more than half the losses can be attributed to metastatic disease at presentation, then the remaining portion of deaths may be linked to disease relapse after surgery and, if applicable, adjuvant chemotherapy.
