With the aim of determining if the proportion of rabies virus (RV)-infected adult neurons from dorsal root ganglion are affected by in vitro treatment with different neurotrophins, experiments using Nerve Growth Factor (NGF), Brain Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF) or Neurotrophin-3 (NT-3) as supplements for cells in culture were performed. Cultures(More)
OBJECTIVE Obese women are at increased risk to deliver a large infant, however, the underlying mechanisms are poorly understood. Fetal glucose availability is critically dependent on placental transfer and is linked to fetal growth by regulating the release of fetal growth hormones such as insulin. We hypothesized that (1) umbilical vein glucose and insulin(More)
Intra-amniotic dye instillation is a useful tool for evaluation of equivocal cases of preterm prelabor rupture of membranes and for genetic amniocentesis in multifetal gestation. Indigo carmine, the most used and studied dye, is no longer available. We sought to provide a resource of potential dyes for clinical use that summarizes dosing along with(More)
Context Maternal obesity in pregnancy has profound impacts on maternal metabolism and promotes placental nutrient transport, which may contribute to fetal overgrowth in these pregnancies. The fatty acid docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) has bioactive properties that may improve outcomes in obese pregnant women by modulating placental function. Objective To(More)
•Management of cervical leiomyosarcoma in pregnancy requires a multidisciplinary approach.•Ovarian preservation is preferred in young patients with early stage cervical leiomyosarcoma.•Routine lymphadenectomy in patients with early stage cervical leiomyosarcoma is not useful.
