The US National Library of Medicine and National Institutes of Health manage PubMed.gov which comprises of more than 21 million records, papers, reports for biomedical literature, including MEDLINE, life science and medical journals, articles, reviews, reports and books. BioPortfolio aims to publish relevant information on published papers, clinical trials and news associated with users selected topics.
For example view all recent relevant publications on Epigenetics and associated publications and clincial trials.
To examine the pregnancy outcomes of women >45 years in a multi-ethnic population when compared to controls and to reflect on socio-demographic details of the older mothers.
To determine the levels of oxidative stress markers in recurrent pregnancy loss using a novel automated method.
To determine the prevalence of hereditary endometrial cancer and the clinical and molecular characteristics of hereditary endometrial cancer patients.
To determine whether the use of uterotonics, including oxytocin and prostaglandins, increases the risk of abruptio placentae and eclampsia.
To determine if endometrial gene expression is different in women with endometriosis-related infertility and fertile women.
To compare the efficacies and side effects of Iodine-125 ((125)I) seeds implantation with afterloading radiotherapy on tumor xenografts derived from Hela cells.
This review aims to sum up current knowledge on the sensitivity and specificity of ultrasound features suggestive of acute pelvic inflammatory disease (PID).
Differences in mesh composition may affect outcomes such as erosion, tissue integration and inflammation. The majority of commercially available meshes are type 1, manufactured from monofilament polypropylene with differing pore sizes and mechanical properties.
Uterine artery occlusion (UAO) is a promising method for the treatment of leiomyoma. This study is intended to demonstrate the discrepancy of ER stress-induced apoptosis in leiomyoma and myometrium as a result of UAO therapy.
To compare the superficial incisional surgical site infection (SSI) rate after cesarean section (CS) in obese women using subcuticular versus interrupted skin suturing.
Many infections follow a seasonal trend. Aim of our study was to check whether acute pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) follows a seasonal progress.
Ovarian cancer is the most aggressive gynecologic malignancy, with a 5-year survival rate ranging around 40 %. A crucial factor influencing the prognosis is early detection of a suspicious mass and referral to a gynecologic oncology center for further diagnosis, staging and debulking surgery. Here, we present the different imaging methods ultrasound (US), magnetic resonance imaging, computer tomography (CT) and 18F-fluoro-deoxyglucose positron emission tomography (PET)/CT that are used for the characteriza...
The 2012 "4 countries meeting" of the French, Dutch, British and German Societies of Gynaecology and Obstetrics (CNGOF, NVOG, RCOG, DGGG) was dedicated to the topic "Low-risk pregnancy and normal delivery". The objective was to compare how each country organises prenatal care and normal delivery. The discussion is outlined in the article and provides new opportunities to learn from each other's strengths in order to provide the highest level of care regardless of social, demographic, educational and clinica...
The aim of this study is to compare the efficacy and safety of expectant management with surgical management of first-trimester miscarriage.
The aim of the present cross-sectional prospective study was to establish Doppler reference ranges for blood flow velocity waveforms (V max, V mean and V min) and resistance indices (PI, RI) of the fetal pulmonary arteries using the new pulsed-wave color advanced dynamic flow (ADF) Doppler technique.
To develop uniform and reliable reference ranges for amniotic fluid volume (AFV) across gestation in normal singleton pregnancies using quantile regression (QR).
This article describes the status of gynecological cancer care in Germany and gives an overview of the certification of gynecological cancer care by the German Cancer Society (Deutsche Krebsgesellschaft DKG). The DKG certifies cancer centers to promote a high-quality level in the treatment of oncological patients.
The aim of the present study is to assess the impact of adding oral metformin to insulin therapy in pregnant women with insulin-resistant diabetes mellitus.
The human endometrium undergoes repetitive, cyclical changes under the influence of endocrine signals (estrogen and progesterone). In particular, the extensive tissue remodeling, angiogenesis and leukocyte infiltration that occur during decidualization of the endometrium give rise to an environment that is permissive to blastocyst attachment. However, it is now well established that crosstalk (via paracrine signals) between the trophoblast and the endometrium is also a key for successful implantation. Micro...
Hepatocyte growth factor (HGF), also known as scatter factor, and its receptor c-Met have been shown to be implicated in endometriosis. HGF acts as a mitogen, motogen, and morphogen on endometrial epithelial cells. The expression of c-Met on human endometrial cells has been reported. Many proteins are proteolytically released from the surface by a process known as ectodomain shedding. The aim of this study was to determine the levels of soluble c-Met (s-cMet) in the peritoneal fluid (PF) and serum samples o...
To evaluate the patterns of lymphatic spread in epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) macroscopically confined to the ovary and to determine risk factors for lymph node metastasis.
The aim of this study was to determine the incidence, indications and the risk factors and complications of emergency peripartum hysterectomy (EPH).
