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...

Uterine and ovary blood flow after uterine desarterialization

The aim of this article is to compare the effect of uterine desarterialization (UD) and hypogastric arteries ligature (HAL) in uterine and ovarian blood flow indirectly measured with the pulsatility i...

Hypertension management : from medical inertia to patient autonomy.

The percentage of patients treated for hypertension with a well-controlled blood pressure (< 140/90 mmHg) remains disappointedly low, in general way below 50 %, despite all national and international ...

Clinical inertia, reverse clinical inertia, and medication non-adherence in type 2 diabetes.

Clinical inertia and medication non-adherence are thought to contribute largely to the suboptimal glycemic control in many patients with type 2 diabetes. The present review explores the relations betw...

Pregnancy upregulates angiotensin type 2 receptor expression and increases blood flow in uterine arteries of rats.

Normal pregnancy is associated with decreased uterine vascular contraction and increased blood flow even though angiotensin II (AngII) levels are increased. AngII not only activates the angiotensin ty...

Angiography of ovarian and uterine vessels of the dog.

A thorough knowledge about anastomoses between uterine and ovarian arteries could have great impact in surgical interventions. The present study aimed to use an angiographic procedure to show the vasc...

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.
