The status and duration of breastfeeding have a significant impact on the risk of postpartum depression
According to the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, between 11 and 20 percent of women who give birth each year in the United States have symptoms of postpartum depression, which is the greatest risk factor for maternal suicide and infanticide. Given that there are 4 million births a year, this equates to nearly 800,000 women with postpartum depression each year.

Current biological and psychosocial models of Breastfeeding suggest that breastfeeding could possibly reduce a woman's risk of postpartum depression. However, previous studies have only looked at the initiation of breastfeeding and the duration of breastfeeding. Furthermore, small and often homogeneous samples have yielded non-generalizable results lacking statistical power with biased results due to higher levels of education, income, and proportions of white participants compared to the general population of the sampled country.

Scientists identify a new therapeutic target in the subtype of ovarian cancer with a poor prognosis
Mutations in the ARID1A gene are present in more than 50% of ovarian clear cell carcinomas (OCCC), for which effective treatments are lacking. The scientists found that the loss of ARID1A function enhances a cellular stress response pathway that promotes the survival of cancer cells, which become sensitive to pharmacological inhibition of this pathway.

Mutations in the ARID1A gene are present in more than 50% of ovarian clear cell carcinomas (OCCC), for which effective treatments are lacking. Scientists at the Wistar Institute found that loss of ARID1A function enhances a cellular stress response pathway that promotes survival of cancer cells, which become sensitive to pharmacological inhibition of this pathway. These findings were published online at Cancer Research , a journal of the American Association for Cancer Research, and point to a new therapeutic opportunity for this type of ovarian cancer for which new solutions are urgently needed.

Guidelines to support breastfeeding during maternal or infant hospitalization
The Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine (ABM) has published its new recommendations on supporting breastfeeding during maternal or infant hospitalization. Whenever possible, the breastfeeding mother and the breastfeeding infant or child should be kept together, according to the new guidelines, published in the peer-reviewed journal Breastfeeding Medicine.

The ABM recommends the use of evidence-based guidelines for expressing and storing milk. However, whenever possible, direct breastfeeding is preferred to using a breast pump or manual expression of milk. Other recommendations include considering that fluid needs may differ for the nursing mother and considering infection control and prevention. Each establishment must create a policy to support the nursing mother and nursing child.

According to new research, breast milk from lactating mothers vaccinated against COVID-19 contains a significant supply of antibodies that can help protect nursing babies from the disease.

When babies are born, their immune systems are underdeveloped, making it difficult for them to fight infections on their own. They are also often too young to respond adequately to certain types of vaccines, said Josef Neu, MD, one of the study's co-authors and a professor in the department of pediatrics at UF's School of Medicine, division of neonatology.

Acupuncture improves symptoms of chronic prostatitis / chronic pelvic pain syndrome
A multicenter randomized trial showed that 20 acupuncture sessions over 8 weeks resulted in greater improvement in symptoms of moderate to severe chronic prostatitis / chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CP / CPPS) compared to sham therapy. Treatment effects lasted for 24 weeks of follow-up. The findings are published in the Annals of Internal Medicine.

CP / CPPS manifests discomfort or pain in the pelvic region for at least 3 of the previous 6 months without evidence of infection. Lower urinary tract symptoms, psychological problems, and sexual dysfunction may also be involved. Men with CP / CPPS may have a poor quality of life due to the many neuropsychophysiological pathophysiological factors associated with the disorder, such as inflammation of the prostate, anxiety and stress, and dyssynergic urination. Antibiotics, blockers? and anti-inflammatories are the mainstays of treatment in clinical practice, but they have limited efficacy and are associated with adverse events with use at long term . Acupuncture has shown promise as an alternative treatment, but high-quality evidence is scarce.

Moms2B. The care program that reduces infant mortality
It is a program that approaches prenatal and postnatal health with a new perspective, integrating education, services and support in selected neighborhoods. She provides lessons on pregnancy and motherhood to more than 2500 women with access to social services, medical services and a healthy meal in each session.

Research at the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center suggests that Moms2B reduces adverse pregnancy outcomes in communities disproportionately affected by public health concerns. The study, led by researchers Courtney Lynch and Erinn Hade and published in the Journal of Maternal and Child Health, indicates that women who attended at least two sessions of Moms2B may have lower rates of preterm delivery, low birth weight, and infant mortality compared to women who only received individual care.

Cholesterol drugs reduce deaths in women with cancer: study | I am life
Recent research indicates that treatment to regulate cholesterol levels and decrease the risk of death in women with breast, colorectal and melanoma cancer

Cholesterol-lowering drugs are also effective in reducing mortality in women with cancer. Studies carried out by a group of researchers from the Berghofer Medical Research Institute in Australia confirm that drugs used to lower cholesterol also reduce mortality in women with breast, colorectal and melanoma cancer. Australian women were included in the analysis over a 10-year period (2003-2013), who had been prescribed cholesterol-lowering drugs, such as statins, prior to their diagnosis. The researchers' study determined that the more systematically women took these types of drugs, the lower the probability of mortality due to their disease, understanding that these drugs could have antitumor effects. Statin is a metabolic that fights triglycerides and cholesterol. Still the scientists were very cautious. after the study and stated that more research should be carried out to confirm that the relationship that has been observed in said experiment may be more effective and that the statin can be used with certainty for the preventive treatment and prevention of breast cancer and other cancers.

Surgery for Benign Breast Disease Does Not Affect Future Ability to Breastfeed - Nursing and Health News
Surgery for Benign Breast Disease Does Not Affect Future Ability to Breastfeed - Nursing and Health News

Young women with benign breast conditions can undergo surgery without ever jeopardizing their ability to breastfeed in the future, according to a clinical poster presented at the American College of Surgeons 2020 Virtual Clinical Congress.

One of the first studies to evaluate the effects of surgery on breastfeeding outcomes and ability to breastfeed reveals that more than 80% of young women successfully breastfed or bottle-fed, including also those with a history of a previous breast operation. Benign breast conditions in women are very common and most are treated with surgery. Other procedures are reduction mammoplasty to treat macromastia (enlargement of the breast tissue) or augmentation due to breast asymmetry or conditions typical of breast development. Still, there is great concern among breast surgeons about the possibility that a surgical procedure that invades the breast tissue could alter the subareolar complex and could damage the milk ducts or nerves, thus interfering with a woman's future ability to breastfeed. Such procedures include a minimally invasive one, such as a diagnostic biopsy, or a major surgery, such as a reduction mammoplasty. Studies on the relationship between breast surgery and subsequent breastfeeding are very limited. Researchers at Boston Children's Hospital studied the ability to breastfeed in mothers between the ages of 18 and 45. The study compared the ability to breastfeed among women who had previously been diagnosed and treated for a breast condition with those who were not. Of the 85 women in the study, 15 had a history of breast disease (including breast cysts), fibroadenoma (benign tumors), and macromastia (enlarged breasts). 16 of them underwent breast surgery, including breast augmentation, reduction mammoplasty, and biopsy. Regardless of whether they had undergone previous breast surgery or not, 80% of the women in the study were able to breastfeed or obtain breast milk for bottle feeding. Researchers continue to study the relationship between previous benign breast surgery and future breastfeeding and breastfeeding performance, hoping to have more data to assess in the coming months. All women in the study developed by the Boston Children's Hospital team completed a survey called the Maternal and Infant Lactation Questionnaire (MILQ). This questionnaire collects information on the general health and well-being of mothers and their babies, as well as the physical, socioeconomic and emotional components of the breastfeeding experience. Some measures also include breastfeeding history, milk quality and quantity, challenges and barriers to breastfeeding, and initiation, duration, and satisfactory degree of breastfeeding.

A Spanish study shows that egg donation from women with covid-19 is safe
This finding confirms that the eggs of women diagnosed with covid-19 do not contain the coronavirus in them and reveals that mother-fetus vertical infection does not occur through the eggs

The main concern in relation to assisted reproduction treatments during the Coronavirus is the possible transmission of the virus through gametes and embryos prior to their implantation. For this reason, fertility clinics have been acting with all possible precautions, implementing safety protocols in the handling of donor and patient material.

Thanks to a study carried out by a Spanish research team from the Eugin laboratories in Barcelona and which has been published in the prestigious journal Human Reproduction, it has been confirmed that the eggs of women who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 do not contain the virus in they. This fact, unique worldwide in the field of assisted reproduction and fertility, reveals that mother-fetus infection does not occur through the ovules. This data allows us to continue offering in vitro fertilization treatments in the current pandemic situation and can thus provide a response to patients around the world who choose to use this technique to have children. From the moment COVId-19 was detected, it has been verified that it can affect different tissues and organs, but its effect on reproductive function was little known. For this reason, it was not clear whether the virus could infect human gametes and whether fertilized oocytes from infected women could lead to infection of the developing embryo. This research has been led by the director of the Eugin Group, Rita Vassena and has been carried out based on the study of a total of 16 eggs from two asymptomatic women who underwent controlled ovarian stimulation and tested positive for the infection on the day of extraction. of the oocytes. Once the positive was detected, it was agreed not to use these oocytes out of prudence and to refer them to research samples. The study was carried out using 6 eggs from one of the women and 10 from the other with the use of a very innovative technique, developed by the entire Eugin team. This technique made it possible to identify viral material from very small sample amounts, such as human eggs. The result did not show the presence of virus RNA in any of the 6 oocytes analyzed from both women. This is great news at the clinical level, since it allows adjusting the protocols and actions of healthcare personnel in IVF clinics, as well as being able to advise patients at all times in situations as extreme as the one we are experiencing at the moment.

In-person pregnancy checks do not increase COVID-19 risk
According to a study published Aug. 14 in the Journal of the American Medical Association, in-person visits do not increase the risk of COVID-19 infection for pregnant women who visit a medical facility for gynecological tests.

The Brigham and Women's Hospital study (which included thousands of women who had babies in four Boston-area hospitals between April 19 and June 27, 2020) shows that it is possible to safely conduct in-person medical visits. The study's conclusion, according to its author, Dr. Sharon Reale, an anesthesiologist at Brigham and Women's Hospital, should reassure obstetric patients who are avoiding necessary medical care for fear of contracting COVID-19 in a healthcare setting. Although some patients are able to carry out virtual medical visits, many pregnant women need to make multiple visits in person for checkups, exams and laboratory tests aimed at ensuring the health of the mother and the baby or babies.
