Depression and anxiety in early pregnancy are associated with risk for subsequent preeclampsia, a risk further increased by bacterial vaginosis. Expand
Factors associated with fear of delivery in second pregnancies.
Preventing fear of childbirth during and after first labor might require more education on causes and consequences of cesarean or vacuum extraction, eg, in birth classes and at postpartum visits. Expand
A prospective study of 63 couples with a history of recurrent spontaneous abortion: contributing factors and outcome of subsequent pregnancies.

- 1 May 1993
To evaluate the possible causes of recurrent spontaneous abortion and to elucidate the prognosis for subsequent pregnancies 63 RSA patients were studied and normal findings in the investigations were associated with a smaller risk for abortion than were abnormal findings. Expand

VEGF increased rapidly in the lungs of the preterm infant during the first days of life, which may be indicative of pulmonary maturity and may participate in pulmonary repair after acute lung injury. Expand
Elevation of both maternal and fetal extracellular circulating deoxyribonucleic acid concentrations in the plasma of pregnant women with preeclampsia.
- X. Zhong, H. Laivuori, +4 authors S. Hahn
- American journal of obstetrics and gynecology
- 1 February 2001
The releases of both free fetal and maternal deoxyribonucleic acid were found to be affected in preeclampsia, and increases in these de oxygenribon nucleic acid levels corresponded to the severity of the disorder. Expand
Breast Cancer Risk in Postmenopausal Women Using Estradiol–Progestogen Therapy
The use of E2–progestogen therapy is associated with an increased risk for breast cancer after 3 years of use, lower for sequential than for continuous use, but comparable for oral and transdermal use. Expand
Bacterial vaginosis in early pregnancy and pregnancy outcome
- T. Kurki, A. Sivonen, O. Renkonen, E. Savia, O. Ylikorkala
- Obstetrics and gynecology
- 1 August 1992
Bacterial vaginosis in early pregnancy can be detected reliably by Gram stain and, in most cases, by Papanicolaou smear, and the clinical usefulness of its assessment is limited because of the high rate of false-positive findings. Expand
Susceptibility loci for preeclampsia on chromosomes 2p25 and 9p13 in Finnish families.
The regions on chromosomes 2p25 and 9p13 may harbor susceptibility genes for preeclampsia, which is a common, pregnancy-specific disorder characterized by reduced placental perfusion, endothelial dysfunction, elevated blood pressure, and proteinuria. Expand
Effects of ospemifene, a novel SERM, on hormones, genital tract, climacteric symptoms, and quality of life in postmenopausal women: a double-blind, randomized trial
- E. Rutanen, J. Heikkinen, K. Halonen, J. Komi, R. Lammintausta, O. Ylikorkala
- 1 September 2003
Ospemifene at daily doses of 30 to 90 mg did not stimulate endometrium or aggravate hot flashes but clearly had a rather strong estrogenic effect on the vaginal epithelium during a 3-month treatment period, as evidenced by an increase in intermediate and superficial cells in repeat Pap smears.

The findings of this 52-week study confirm the tolerance and efficacy of oral ospemifene previously reported in short- and long-term studies. Expand
