Listeria monocytogenes is a foodborne pathogen that disproportionally affects pregnant females, older adults, and immunocompromised individuals. Using U.S. Foodborne Diseases Active Surveillance Network (FoodNet) surveillance data, we examined listeriosis incidence rates and rate ratios (RRs) by age, sex, race/ethnicity, and pregnancy status across three periods from 2008 to 2016, as recent incidence trends in U.S. subgroups had not been evaluated. The invasive listeriosis annual incidence rate per 100,000 for 2008-2016 was 0...

INTRODUCTION: The lowest incidence of perinatal morbidity and mortality occurs around 39-40 weeks.Therefore, some have advocated induction of uncomplicated singleton gestations once they reach full-term. The aim of the study was to evaluate the risk of cesarean delivery and any maternal and perinatal effects of a policy of induction of labor in full-term uncomplicated women with singleton gestations. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We performed an electronic search from inception of each database to August 2018...

Background: Diabetes in pregnancy is associated with miscarriage, stillbirth, congenital abnormalities, macrosomia and perinatal mortality. The demographics of the population becoming pregnant has changed (more obese and older women). More women are therefore entering pregnancy with undiagnosed diabetes. Aim: To review the literature on HbA1c as a screening tool to identify undiagnosed diabetes in the first trimester of pregnancy. Methods: A systematic search of the evidence was undertaken using specific search criteria from Cochrane Library, EMBASE, Medline, NICE Guidance, PROSPERO and PubMed...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the risk of adverse maternal outcomes among adolescents experiencing a repeat pregnancy in the Philippines. METHODS: Data were analyzed from four waves (1998-2013) of a cross-sectional nationally representative survey. We included 2518 non-nulliparous and non-pregnant women aged 15-44 years with an interpregnancy interval (IPI) of 24 months or less. Multivariate logistic regression was used to measure the association of repeat pregnancy with adverse maternal outcomes by age group (11-19, 20-24, and 25-45 years), accounting for clustering within each respondent...

Nutrition interventions that target mothers alone inadequately address women's needs across their lives: during adolescence, preconception, and in later years of life. They also fail to capture nulliparous women. The extent to which nutrition interventions effectively reach women throughout the life course is not well documented. In this comprehensive narrative review, we summarized the impact and delivery platforms of nutrition-specific and nutrition-sensitive interventions targeting adolescent girls, women of reproductive age (nonpregnant, nonlactating), pregnant and lactating women, women with young children <5 y, and older women, with a focus on nutrition interventions delivered in low- and middle-income countries...

AIM: the Aim of the BEREG Registry was to analyze the prevalence and structure of cardiovascular diseases, associated comorbid conditions and assess their effects on pregnancy and perinatal outcomes in real clinical practice. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In Tula city regional perinatal center the observation study named &quot;Assessment of the clinical condition of the pregnant women with cardiovascular disease during gestation, at child delivery, at the early postpartum period and at twelve months after childbirth and assesment of perinatal outcomes, condition of the fetus and the newborn and the quality of treatment of these patients groups...

In Turkey, Measles Elimination Programme has been implemented since 2002. The aim of this research was to evaluate the measles specific antibody levels of mothers who admitted to a hospital for birth and their infants, and to determine the factors influencing the antibody levels of both and to evaluate the transplacental transport ratio. We selected healthy women who came to the hospital for birth and their healthy newborns. We collected blood samples from 1547 mothers and 1529 infants.The protective prevalance of measles antibody levels of mothers was 85% (95%CI:78-82), and the newborns' was 85% (95%CI:83-86)...

OBJECTIVE: To identify microRNAs (miRNAs) differentially expressed in plasma exosomes collected in women diagnosed with preeclampsia compared with women with uncomplicated pregnancies. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Exosomes were purified from plasma samples obtained at each trimester from four women subsequently diagnosed with preeclampsia and from five matched healthy controls. RNA was purified from the exosomes, and expression of 368 miRNAs was profiled using A-Set TaqMan low density array (TLDA)...

BACKGROUND: Partner HIV testing during pregnancy has remained abysmally low in sub-Saharan Africa, particularly in Nigeria. Males rarely attend antenatal clinics with their female partners, limiting the few opportunities available to offer them HIV testing. In this study, we evaluated the scale-up of the Healthy Beginning Initiative (HBI), a community-driven evidenced-based intervention to increase HIV testing among pregnant women and their male partners. Our objectives were to determine the: (1) male partner participation rate; (2) prevalence of HIV among male partners of pregnant women; (3) factors associated with HIV positivity among male partners of HIV-positive pregnant women...

Background: As the aging society progresses, the average age of mothers is also increasing. Advanced maternal age has been known to be associated with perinatal outcomes, as well as birth weight (BW). In this study, we aimed to investigate the perinatal factors associated with low birth weight infants (LBWIs) using birth statistics of the Korean population. Methods: Birth statistics between 1993 and 2016 from the Korean Statistical Information Service were reviewed...

Background: The standard morphological evaluation has been widely used for embryo selection, but it has limitations. This study aimed to investigate the correlation between morphologic grading and euploidy rate of in vitro fertilization (IVF) preimplantation genetic screening (PGS) and compare the pregnancy rates in young and old ages. Methods: This is a retrospective study using the medical records of patients who underwent IVF procedures with PGS between January 2016 and February 2017 in a single center...
