To quantify spontaneous and provoked fetal to maternal cell exchange in the first half of pregnancy. Transfer of fetal red blood cells (FRBCs) into the maternal circulation during the first half of pregnancy is poorly characterized but of clinical relevance for miscarriage management and invasive procedures.

According to the "parent-offspring conflict hypothesis" the rapid evolution and diversification of the mammalian placenta is driven by divergent optima of resource allocation between fetus and mother....
Caesarean section is a commonly performed major obstetric surgery to deliver baby under certain indications which may be maternal or fetal. If performed timely, it is helpful to save the life of mothe...
The mechanism underlying fetal-placental Doppler changes in pre-eclampsia and/or fetal growth restriction are unknown though both are associated with maternal cardiovascular dysfunction. We sought to ...
Interleukin-1 beta (IL-1β) is a cytokine mediator of perinatal brain injury. The effect of sub-chronic systemic IL-1β exposure in perinatal and offspring outcomes is unclear. The aim of this study w...
Integrins regulate adhesion at the feto-maternal interface by interacting with secreted phosphoprotein 1 (SPP1) and fibronectin (FN). It is hypothesised that impaired foetal growth of 'runt' piglets i...
Placenta previa is a placenta that implants at lower uterine segment, it occurs in about 0.3-0.5% of pregnancies at term. It is a significant risk for development of maternal morbidity, as...
The purpose of the study is to determine the feasibility of performing FETO surgery and removal of the BALT balloon in the most severe group of fetuses with left or right Congenital Diaphr...
Hemorrhage remains the leading cause of maternal death worldwide. Tranexamic acid has been shown to reduce rates of hemorrhage when given prophylactically prior to cesarean delivery. It ha...
The aim of this study is to determine the validity of Kleinhauer Betke in women with known hemoglobinopathy for fetal-maternal hemorrhage.
To determine the levels of zidovudine triphosphate ( AZT-TP ) in maternal and fetal cord blood mononuclear cells. To determine the ratio of AZT-TP to endogenous nucleoside triphosphate lev...
Exchange of substances between the maternal blood and the fetal blood at the PLACENTA via PLACENTAL CIRCULATION. The placental barrier excludes microbial or viral transmission.
Excess blood loss from uterine bleeding associated with OBSTETRIC LABOR or CHILDBIRTH. It is defined as blood loss greater than 500 ml or of the amount that adversely affects the maternal physiology, such as BLOOD PRESSURE and HEMATOCRIT. Postpartum hemorrhage is divided into two categories, immediate (within first 24 hours after birth) or delayed (after 24 hours postpartum).
Transmission of genetic characters, qualities, and traits, solely from maternal extra-nuclear elements such as MITOCHONDRIAL DNA or MATERNAL MESSENGER RNA.
A syndrome characterized by multiple abnormalities, MENTAL RETARDATION, and movement disorders. Present usually are skull and other abnormalities, frequent infantile spasms (SPASMS, INFANTILE); easily provoked and prolonged paroxysms of laughter (hence "happy"); jerky puppetlike movements (hence "puppet"); continuous tongue protrusion; motor retardation; ATAXIA; MUSCLE HYPOTONIA; and a peculiar facies. It is associated with maternal deletions of chromosome 15q11-13 and other genetic abnormalities. (From Am J Med Genet 1998 Dec 4;80(4):385-90; Hum Mol Genet 1999 Jan;8(1):129-35)

Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
