The roles of long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids in pregnancy, lactation and infancy: review of current knowledge and consensus recommendations
TLDR
Current knowledge on the role of the long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids, DHA, docosahexaenoic acid and arachidonic acid, in maternal and term infant nutrition as well as infant development is reviewed. Expand
Placental mesenchymal stem cells as potential autologous graft for pre- and perinatal neuroregeneration.
TLDR
MSCs isolated from fetal membranes and placenta showed typical MSC phenotype and were able to differentiate into mesodermal cells expressing cell markers/cytologic staining consistent with mature chondroblasts, osteoblasts, adipocytes, or myocytes and into neuronal cells presenting markers of various stages of maturation. Expand
Depression and anxiety during pregnancy: A risk factor for obstetric, fetal and neonatal outcome? A critical review of the literature
TLDR
Elevated levels of depression and anxiety symptoms during pregnancy contribute independently of other biomedical risk factors to adverse obstetric, fetal and neonatal outcome, however, conclusions for women with mood or anxiety disorders are limited. Expand
Maternal age‐ and gestation‐specific risk for trisomy 21
TLDR
To provide estimates of maternal age‐ and gestational age‐related risks for trisomy 21, data are generalized to include all pregnancies up to and including the first trimester of pregnancy. Expand
Optimized real-time quantitative PCR measurement of male fetal DNA in maternal plasma.
TLDR
The low copy numbers of fetal DNA in plasma of women in the first trimester of pregnancy can be measured reliably, targeting the DYS14 that is present in multiple copies per Y chromosome. Expand
Characterization of an immortalized human granulosa cell line (COV434).
TLDR
The immortalized human granulosa cell line COV434 may be useful for experimental studies on follicular development and apoptosis and detailed morphological analysis of the intercellular connections with scanning electron microscope and confocal light microscopy demonstrated the presence of long slender structures. Expand
Induction of neutrophil extracellular DNA lattices by placental microparticles and IL-8 and their presence in preeclampsia.
TLDR
Large numbers of NETs were present directly in the intervillous space of preeclamptic placentae, and their increased presence in preeclampsia suggests that NETs may play a role in the underlying pathology. Expand
The Multipotency of Luteinizing Granulosa Cells Collected from Mature Ovarian Follicles
TLDR
It is demonstrated that luteinizing GCs isolated from the ovarian follicles of infertile patients and sorted with flow cytometry based upon the presence of their specific marker, the follicle‐stimulating hormone receptor (FSHR), can be maintained in culture over prolonged periods of time in the presenceof the leukemia‐inhibiting factor (LIF). Expand
Potential markers of preeclampsia – a review
TLDR
The current knowledge on the biology of preeclampsia is presented and several biochemical markers which may be used to monitor preeclampia in a future, that, it is hoped, is not to distant from today are reviewed. Expand
Elevation of both maternal and fetal extracellular circulating deoxyribonucleic acid concentrations in the plasma of pregnant women with preeclampsia.
TLDR
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
