To evaluate the role of perinatal transmission in the spread of hepatitis C virus (HCV), we screened a cohort of pregnant intravenous drug using (IVDU) women for HCV antibody detection; where seropositive HCV RNA detection by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) was found we followed the infants longitudinally for HCV antibody and HCV RNA. Serum prevalence for(More)
This study analyzes the clinical and pathological features of 76 patients who were diagnosed as having ovarian low malignant potential tumor over a 20-year period: 39 (51.3%) of the tumors were mucinous, 29 (38.2%) serous, three (3.9%) endometrioid, and five (6.6%) mixed. Patients with serous tumors were significantly younger (mean age 40 years) than those(More)

Gestational diabetes(GDM) is increasing exponentially. To address this, we contend that a pervasive mobile solution that can facilitate self-care is a prudent strategy. To demonstrate proof of concept, user fidelity, usability and acceptability of such a solution a small pilot study of 10 patients was designed. A quasi-experimental approach employing a(More)
