The Time of Prenatal Immune Challenge Determines the Specificity of Inflammation-Mediated Brain and Behavioral Pathology
It is demonstrated that the effects of maternal immune challenge between middle and late gestation periods in mice are dissociable in terms of fetal brain cytokine responses to maternal inflammation and the pathological consequences in brain and behavior.

In PCOS, changes in appearance, particularly obesity and hirsutism, reduce physical dimensions of quality-of-life and decrease sexual satisfaction, and Clinicians should pay attention to the psychosocial dimensions of PCOS on an individual basis.

Health-related quality of life measured with the 36-item short-form health survey revealed significantly decreased scores for physicalrole function, bodily pain, vitality, social function, emotional role function, and mental health in patients with PCOS, and severely limits sexual satisfaction.

Three strategies that could be used to modulate the placebo response, depending on which stage of the drug development process they are applied are discussed.
Stress in Puberty Unmasks Latent Neuropathological Consequences of Prenatal Immune Activation in Mice
Exposure to prenatal immune challenge and peripubertal stress induces synergistic pathological effects on adult behavioral functions and neurochemistry and it is demonstrated that the prenatal insult markedly increases the vulnerability of the pubescent offspring to brain immune changes in response to stress.

Results demonstrate that components of the innate immune system participate in the classical fight/flight response and indicate that the marginal pool and the spleen are the major sources for freshly recruited lymphocytes, whereas granulocytes are predominantly released from the marginal Pool and the lung.
Immunological stress at the maternal–foetal interface: A link between neurodevelopment and adult psychopathology
Prevalence and implications of anxiety in polycystic ovary syndrome: results of an internet-based survey in Germany.
Clinicians should be more aware of anxiety disorders in women with PCOS and the high prevalence and the serious implications, and the availability of effective treatment options given proper diagnosis.
