Our objective was to determine the risks of preterm birth (PTB) and low birth weight (LBW) in singletons conceived through in vitro fertilization (IVF)+/-intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) compared to spontaneously conceived singletons after matching or controlling for at least maternal age. The MOOSE guidelines for meta-analysis of observational(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the relation between overweight and obesity in mothers and preterm birth and low birth weight in singleton pregnancies in developed and developing countries. DESIGN Systematic review and meta-analyses. DATA SOURCES Medline and Embase from their inceptions, and reference lists of identified articles. STUDY SELECTION Studies(More)
Using degenerate primers designed based on the conserved regions of the reported SLF/SFB genes, more than a dozen of different cDNA clones were isolated from pollen of three different apple S-genotypes by reverse transcription (RT)-PCR. The 5′- and 3′-rapid amplification of cDNA end in combination with RT-PCR allowed isolation of two full-length cDNAs,(More)
Based on the assumption that low-resolution (LR) and high-resolution (HR) manifolds are locally isometric, the neighbor embedding super-resolution algorithms try to preserve the geometry (reconstruction weights) of the LR space for the reconstructed HR space, but neglect the geometry of the original HR space. Due to the degradation process of the LR image(More)
Android has been a major target of malicious applications (malapps). How to detect and keep the malapps out of the app markets is an ongoing challenge. One of the central design points of Android security mechanism is permission control that restricts the access of apps to core facilities of devices. However, it imparts a significant responsibility to the(More)
BACKGROUND Preeclampsia (the development of proteinuria and hypertension after 20 weeks of gestation) is common; however, there is uncertainty about the natural history of subsequent kidney disease. Our objective is to undertake a systematic review and meta-analysis to determine whether women with a history of preeclampsia are at increased risk of(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this systematic review and meta-analyses was to determine the risks of preterm birth (PTB) and low birth weight (LBW) in twins conceived through in vitro fertilization (IVF) or IVF/intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) compared to spontaneously-conceived twins after matching or controlling for at least maternal age.

Iron is a critical cofactor for a number of metalloenzymes involved in respiration and photosynthesis, but plants often suffer from iron deficiency due to limited supplies of soluble iron in the soil. Iron deficiency induces a series of adaptive responses in various plant species, but the mechanisms by which they are triggered remain largely unknown. Using(More)
