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 compare accuracy of fetal fibronectin (fFN) versus placental alpha microglobulin-1 for detection of premature rupture of fetal membranes (PROM).
As water transporters, aquaporins (AQPs) are closely related to other membrane transporters, and water permeability in cell may contribute to chemosensitivity of tumor. To understand the correlation between AQPs and cisplatin (DDP) sensitivity to ovarian cancer cells, effects of DDP on AQPs expression were detected in vitro, and chemosensitivity of DDP was observed in hypertoncity in vitro.
To identify risk factors and perinatal outcomes associated with the duration of latency period in women who experience preterm premature rupture of membranes (PPROM).
Fetal intestinal volvulus is a rare but serious finding with a high risk of potential life threatening fetal complications. Delay in diagnosis or treatment can increase mortality and morbidity. We report a case of mild fetal bowel dilatation at 30 weeks of gestation and intestinal volvulus presented by the 'whirl-sign', intestinal perforation and meconium peritonitis with fetal ascites and polyhydramnios at 33 weeks of gestation. This case emphasizes the role of examination of the bowel in third trimester u...
In modern obstetrics, different pharmacological and non-pharmacological options allow to obtain pain relief during labour, one of the most important goals in women satisfaction about medical care. The aim of this review is to compare all the analgesia administration schemes in terms of effectiveness in pain relief, length of labour, mode of delivery, side effects and neonatal outcomes.
The establishment of high dependency units (HDUs) has been an undoubted advance in the management of patients undergoing major oncological procedures. The aim of this study was to examine the impact of various preoperative and perioperative patients' characteristics on the prolonged HDU stay.
To investigate the efficacy of bupivacaine-soaked spongostan in cesarean section wound for postoperative anxiety level, satisfaction and early postpartum depression rate.
To assess the effect of metformin on gene and protein expression of insulin receptor (IR) and IGF-1 (IGF-1R) receptor in human endometrial stromal cells after stimulation with androgen and insulin.
Lymphoma is among the five most frequent malignancies during pregnancy while anaplastic large-cell lymphoma (ALCL) is rare, accounting only for 2-3 % of all adult-onset non-Hodgkin lymphomas.
This study aimed at evaluating the pregnancy outcomes of IVF triplets which are spontaneously or electively reduced to twins and to compare them with non-reduced triplets and twins.
Due to very unspecific symptoms ovarian cancer often is diagnosed only at a late stage of the disease. Thus, morbidity and mortality of the patients are high. Even the established tumor marker CA12-5 shows only low specificity, rising the need for alternative biomarkers capable of detecting early stages of ovarian cancer. We analyzed the expression of the tumor suppressor candidate gene LDOC1 (leucine zipper downregulated in cancer 1) as a potential early biomarker in ovarian cancer cell lines.
Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is a strong risk factor for the development of diabetes. We assessed the impact of a 1-year intensive follow-up demonstration program, using direct nurse and outreach worker case management, aimed at increasing compliance with postpartum oral glucose tolerance testing (OGTT).
Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is frequent in adolescents and younger women. Diagnosis is usually based on the clinical findings, and the threshold for empiric antibiotic therapy should be low. However, at least in cases of resistance toward therapy or deterioration of symptoms, laparoscopic evaluation can be helpful.
To clarify whether maternal anemia could reduce placental volume in the early gestation.
To evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of serum mesothelin levels in patients with ovarian masses in comparison to serum cancer antigen (CA) 125 levels.
The aim of this retrospective case-control study was to assess clinical factors that can predict the occurrence of post-partum urinary retention (PPUR) and evaluate their influence as independent risk factors.
This study aimed at determining if tumor-free distance (TFD) from outermost layer of cervix predicts surgicopathologic factors and outcome in surgically treated cervical cancer patients.
Radical resection of deep infiltrating endometriosis (DIE), including bladder and bowel resection, provides relief from pain in symptomatic patients. The laparoscopic approach to treatment is well established for bowel resection but normally requires additional abdominal incisions for specimen retrieval. Here we describe our technique of laparoscopically assisted rectal resection and transvaginal specimen retrieval (LARRT) and provide follow-up information on pain scores and complications.
To study the consistency of hysteroscopy findings and histological chronic endometritis (CE) in recurrent implantation failure (RIF) cases, and to compare their values in indicating antibiotic treatment.
