Patterns of Exacerbations of Chronic Non-Infectious Uveitis in Pregnancy and Puerperium
TLDR
Pregnancy is associated with lower numbers of flare-up of non-infectious uveitis compared to the non-pregnant state, and if flare-ups do occur during pregnancy, they happen predominantly in the first trimester.
North American Parasitic Zoonoses
TLDR
The results show clear trends in the spread of Toxocariasis and Baylisascariasis among Zoonotic Arthropod Parasites in North America, and in particular the number of cases involving Toxoplasmosis and Trichinellosis, which are related to Cysticercosis.

TLDR
Ocular toxoplasmosis in the immunocompromised host presents difficult problems in diagnosis and management, and Histopathologic studies show little retinal inflammation; therefore anti-inflammatory drugs, such as oral steroids, probably have no role in the management of infection.
The role of pregnancy in the course and aetiology of rheumatoid arthritis
TLDR
The evidence and possible mechanisms by which pregnancy modifies the disease process and may alter predisposition to the development of RA in later life are examined.
Successful management of ocular toxoplasmosis during pregnancy using combined intraocular clindamycin and dexamethasone with systemic sulfadiazine
TLDR
There is a need to develop new, effective ways to treat toxoplasmosis retinitis while minimizing fetal exposure to multiple drugs (with theoretical teratogenicity), and decreasing the chances of fetal transmission.
