BACKGROUND CYP19 and PPARgamma are two genes expressed in the placental trophoblast that are important to placental function and are disrupted by phthalate exposure in other cell types. Measurement of the mRNA of these two genes in human placental tissue by quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) offers a source of potential biomarkers for(More)
Fetomaternal hemorrhage (FMH) can be associated with significant perinatal mortality. Our review of the literature did not identify any cases of FMH following placement of an intrauterine pressure catheter (IUPC). In our case, an IUPC was inserted in a patient undergoing induction of labor at term. Fetal bradycardia ensued shortly after placement,(More)
Array comparative hybridization has been used successfully to identify genomic alterations in stillbirth material; however, high DNA quantity and quality requirements may limit its utility in some fetal samples. Molecular inversion probe (MIP) array analysis of FFPE stillbirth autopsy samples circumvents the challenges associated with karyotype and(More)
