Multidisciplinary Prospective Study of Mother-to-Child Chikungunya Virus Infections on the Island of La Réunion
TLDR
Mother-to-child chikungunya virus transmission is frequent in the context of intrapartum maternal viremia, and often leads to severe neonatal infection, and represents a substantial risk for neonates born to viremic parturients that should be taken into account by clinicians and public health authorities in the event of a chikngunya outbreak.
Association of pregnancy-induced hypertension with duration of sexual cohabitation before conception
TLDR
Pregnancy-induced hypertension may be a problem of primipaternity rather than primigravidity, and an extended duration of sexual cohabitation before conception may protect against pregnancy- induced hypertension.
Obstetric and Neonatal Outcomes in Grand Multiparity
TLDR
Grand multiparas, when compared with same-age multiparous controls, appear to have fewer intrapartum complications, however, they present several prenatal risk factors that require special antenatal care.
Pre-eclampsia: Is the immune maladaptation hypothesis still standing? An epidemiological update.
TLDR
The aim here is to provide an updated review on studies supporting or challenging the immune maladaptation hypothesis, and the epidemiology of pre-eclampsia in young women (age 15-25), so commonly seen in developing countries and certain lower socio-economic groups in developed countries, appears more in line with theimmune mal Adaptation hypothesis.
Linear association between maternal pre‐pregnancy body mass index and risk of caesarean section in term deliveries
TLDR
Whether all the spectrum of pre‐pregnancy maternal corpulence (body mass index [BMI]) is associated with the risk of caesarean delivery is determined.
[Chikungunya infection in pregnancy: Evidence for intrauterine infection in pregnant women and vertical transmission in the parturient. Survey of the Reunion Island outbreak].
TLDR
Though fetal contamination risks appear to be rare before 22 weeks of gestation, they are potentially dangerous after 22 weeks gestation, newborns infection occurs if the mother is viremia positive at delivery.
Nutrition practice, compliance to guidelines and postnatal growth in moderately premature babies: the NUTRIQUAL French survey
TLDR
Efforts are needed to improve adherence to nutrition guidelines and growth outcome of moderately preterm infants, as there was a divergence between the intended and the actual practice for both AA and lipids intake.
Low Clinical Burden of 2009 Pandemic Influenza A (H1N1) Infection during Pregnancy on the Island of La Réunion
TLDR
This report mitigates substantially the presumed severity of pandemic H1N1/09 influenza infection during pregnancy in La Réunion and raises questions about a differential local viral-strain effect and public health preparedness, notably in timely access to special care and antiviral treatments.
Immune maladaptation in the etiology of preeclampsia: a review of corroborative epidemiologic studies.
TLDR
Empirical studies strongly suggest that immune maladaptation is involved in the etiology of preeclampsia and according to the primipaternity concept, a multiparous women with a new partner should be approached as being a primigravid women.
