BACKGROUND Obesity has been identified as a risk factor for spontaneous miscarriage although the mechanism is unclear. The purpose of this study is to better understand the effect of obesity on early pregnancy success by examining the cytogenetic results of miscarriages in women with normal and elevated body mass index (BMI). METHODS We conducted a(More)
To locate elements regulating the human CD8 gene complex, we mapped nuclear matrix attachment regions (MARs) and DNase I hypersensitive (HS) sites over a 100-kb region that included the CD8B gene, the intergenic region, and the CD8A gene. MARs facilitate long-range chromatin remodeling required for enhancer activity and have been found closely linked to(More)
OBJECTIVE Flow mediated dilation of the brachial artery is impaired with endothelial dysfunction. We previously identified that brachial artery waveforms were changed in preeclamptic women. We therefore sought to compare Doppler waveform analysis with flow mediated vascular dilation (FMVD) measurements in pregnant women. STUDY DESIGN A cross sectional(More)
OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to evaluate whether the use of customized fetal reference standards improves the prenatal detection of intrauterine growth restriction. METHODS We conducted a retrospective cohort study. Singleton pregnancies with a diagnosis of a small-for-gestational-age (SGA) fetus based on the in utero reference standard of(More)
