LXRs, Cholesterol Metabolism and Uterine Dystocia

2014-08-27 03:14:27 | BioPortfolio


Despite the fact that a link between cholesterol and the myometrium has been clearly established, no study investigating aspects of cholesterol metabolism and uterine dystocia currently exists. This study is a pilot study whose aim is to test the hypothesis that an association between uterine dystocia and single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the genes coding for the LXRs.

Reducing Clinical Inertia in Diabetes Care

In this randomized trial we evaluate two conceptually distinct but potentially synergistic interventions designed to reduce clinical inertia in the outpatient care of adults with type 2 di...

Medical Education for Better Multiple Sclerosis Outcomes

The main objectives of this study are: i) To design an educational tool to train physicians in overcome cognitive factors associated with therapeutic inertia. ii) To determine the ...

Atrial Fibrillation and Characterization of Blood Platelet

Arterial thromboembolism constitutes a major risk of atrial fibrillation (AF) requiring antithrombotic therapy. Platelets and microparticles (MPs) are important for hemostasis and thrombos...

A Test of Neural Inertia in Humans With Xenon

The dual objectives of this study are to determine if the phenomenon of neural inertia is present in humans and to determine whether the order of neurocognitive function is invariant among...

Evidence Synthesis: Hypertension Medication Adherence & Intensification

Hypertension affects nearly 50 million Americans [1] and is the most common chronic condition among veterans. Unfortunately, many patients with established hypertension have poorly contro...

The subtyping of primary aldosteronism by adrenal vein sampling: sequential blood sampling causes factitious lateralization.

The pulsatile secretion of adrenocortical hormones and a stress reaction occurring when starting adrenal vein sampling (AVS) can affect the selectivity and also the assessment of lateralization when s...

Repeated Blood Collection from Tail Vein of Non-Anesthetized Rats with a Vacuum Blood Collection System.

Blood can be collected from rats in a number of sampling locations. For instance, the tail vein is a superior location for blood sampling. However, the tail vein is thin so that it is sometimes hard t...

Survivability of Existing Peripheral Intravenous Access Following Blood Sampling in a Pediatric Population.

Although pediatric patients report venipuncture as their most feared experience during hospitalization, blood sampling from peripheral intravenous accesses (PIVs) is not standard of care. Blood sampli...

Alkaloids and flavonoid glycosides from the aerial parts of Leonurus japonicus and their opposite effects on uterine smooth muscle.

The crude extract and some Chinese patented medicines of Leonurus japonicus Houtt. have been proven to affect the uterine smooth muscle. L. japonicus injection is widely used in obstetric departments...

Screening for HIV, hepatitis B and syphilis on dried blood spots: A promising method to better reach hidden high-risk populations with self-collected sampling.

Many people at high risk for sexually transmitted infections (STIs), e.g., men who have sex with men (MSM), are not optimally reached by current sexual health care systems with testing. To facilitate ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Failure of the UTERUS to contract with normal strength, duration, and intervals during childbirth (LABOR, OBSTETRIC). It is also called uterine atony.

Sampling of blood levels of the adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) by withdrawal of blood from the inferior petrosal sinus. The inferior petrosal sinus arises from the cavernous sinus and runs to the internal jugular vein. Sampling of blood at this level is a valuable tool in the differential diagnosis of Cushing disease, Cushing syndrome, and other adrenocortical diseases.

A sampling methodology using small sample sizes when conducting surveys in small geographical or population-based areas or lots.

A method for diagnosis of fetal diseases by sampling the cells of the placental chorionic villi for DNA analysis, presence of bacteria, concentration of metabolites, etc. The advantage over amniocentesis is that the procedure can be carried out in the first trimester.

The use of embolizing agents to block the arterial blood supply to parts or all of the UTERUS. The procedures are done to control bleeding or to cause destruction of uterine tissues.
