BACKGROUND Stillbirths do not count in routine worldwide data-collating systems or for the Millennium Development Goals. Two sets of national stillbirth estimates for 2000 produced similar worldwide totals of 3·2 million and 3·3 million, but rates differed substantially for some countries. We aimed to develop more reliable estimates and a time series from(More)
BACKGROUND The official WHO estimates of preterm birth are an essential global resource for assessing the burden of preterm birth and developing public health programmes and policies.

Two recent efforts to quantify the causes of maternal deaths on a global scale generated divergent estimates of abortion-related mortality. Such discrepancies in estimates of abortion-related mortality present an important opportunity to explore unique challenges and opportunities associated with the generation and interpretation of abortion-related(More)
The analysis of proteome profiles offers a new approach to understanding how cellular machinery functions and responds under certain conditions. By combining two-dimensional electrophoresis with mass spectrometry (MS), a snapshot of the cell's protein expression status and quantitative proteome profiling can be provided. As the cell's proteome becomes(More)
