Our brain takes shape during the middle of pregnancy
About four to five months after conception, a burst of synaptic growth begins in the prefrontal cortex (PFC) of the human fetus. And within this tangled mass of connections, the developing brain takes on the unique properties that make humans capable of abstract thinking, language, and complex social interactions.

USPSTF recommends aspirin for people at high risk of preeclampsia
The US Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommends low-dose aspirin to reduce the risk of pre-eclampsia among people at high risk. This recommendation forms the basis of the final recommendation statement published in the September 28 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association.

Jillian T. Henderson, Ph.D., MPH, of the Kaiser Permanente Evidence-based Practice Center in Portland, Oregon, and colleagues conducted a systematic review to update the USPSTF evidence on the effectiveness of aspirin in preventing Preeclampsia in individuals at increased risk based on clinical risk factors or measurements. We included data from 23 randomized clinical trials with 26952 participants, including 18 trials among participants at increased risk of pre-eclampsia. The researchers found that the incidence of pre-eclampsia ranged from 4 to 30 percent in the trials of participants at higher risk. Aspirin use was significantly associated with lower risks of preeclampsia, perinatal mortality, and preterm delivery, and intrauterine growth restriction (combined relative risks, 0,85, 0,79, 0,80, and 0,82, respectively). There was no significant association of aspirin use with the risk of postpartum haemorrhage or other haemorrhage-related harm.

A common antibiotic reduces low birth weight and prematurity
According to research, a common antibiotic has been found to reduce low birth weight and premature births, if taken during pregnancy, in countries where malaria is endemic.

The researchers reviewed 14 studies conducted in African and Asian countries, involving 17.594. The systematic review, led by the Murdoch Children's Research Institute (MCRI) and published in The Lancet EClinicalMedicine, found that the antibiotic azithromycin reduced underweight when birth and prematurity in Africa and Asia, but it did not reduce infant deaths, infections and hospital admissions.

Treat infertility with drug-releasing microspheres
For an embryo to survive, it must adhere to the lining of the uterus within a few days of conception. However, if this lining, called the endometrium, is too thin, the embryo cannot latch on. Now, researchers reporting in ACS Biomaterials Science & Engineering have developed a new system aimed at treating infertility in women with thin endometria. Its tiny microscale particles stimulated the growth of blood vessels, producing promising results in preliminary experiments in cells and mice.

Poor blood flow within the endometrium limits its thickness, and researchers have struggled to find an effective way to stimulate the formation of new blood vessels. Some have begun to explore the use of microspheres to deliver treatment. However, current methods for manufacturing these small particles face challenges, including the need for complex and demanding production methods and too much variation in the sizes of the spheres. So Xiangguo Wang, Lei Yang, and their colleagues wanted to devise a simple and efficient technique to fabricate uniform microspheres charged with a compound known to be a powerful stimulator of the crecimiento of blood vessels.

Are the "Unborn" most common in women infected with COVID?
COVID-19 is on the rise in US states with low vaccination rates, and these places may also be experiencing a higher than usual number of "Unborn" related to the virus.

While the "Unborn" number, Still very low nationally, doctors in the Deep South have noted increases in stillbirths, NBC News reported. One of those states is Alabama. But the numbers are too low overall to draw definitive conclusions about whether COVID cases led to an increase in stillbirths, said Dr. Akila Subramaniam, associate professor in the Division of Maternal-Fetal Medicine at the University of Alabama at Birmingham.

Reception of Covid-19 mRNA vaccines and risk of miscarriage
Pregnant people are at risk for severe coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19), and severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection during pregnancy is associated with an increased risk of childbirth. premature and other adverse maternal and neonatal outcomes.

Although miscarriage (pregnancy loss that occurs before 20 weeks of gestation) is a common pregnancy outcome affecting 11 to 22% of recognized pregnancies. Data to report estimates of the risk of miscarriage after receiving a Covid-19 mRNA vaccine before conception (30 days before the first day of the last menstrual period up to 14 days after) or during pregnancy are limited.

New discovery signals 'golden window' for IVF success
Researchers find a way to better identify the 'golden window' when a uterus is ready for pregnancy, in a discovery that could help increase IVF success rates.

Researchers have found a way to better identify the "golden window" when a uterus is ready for pregnancy, in a discovery that could help increase IVF success rates. The team found that levels of this molecule on the surface of the uterus decrease at a certain point in the menstrual cycle. This allows the uterus to become stickier, opening the "golden window" for successful pregnancy.

Pregnant women do well with the COVID vaccine
A survey of more than 17,000 pregnant and lactating women who received the COVID-19 vaccine showed that they did not experience more severe symptoms than their non-pregnant counterparts.

The UW Medicine study, published today in JAMA Network Open, showed that "there was no increase in reactions in pregnant women beyond what is expected from a vaccine," said Dr. Linda Eckert, professor of obstetrics and gynecology at the School of the University of Washington. of Medicine and lead author of the study. The findings come a week after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention formally recommended that all pregnant women get vaccinated against the virus. The CDC reported that only 23% of pregnant women in the US were vaccinated at the end of July. The percentage is even lower among women of color and Latinas.

Vaping during pregnancy is harmful to offspring into adulthood
The use of electronic cigarettes ("vaping") during pregnancy represents a significant risk to the health of the offspring, since it affects the function of blood vessels even in adulthood, according to a new study by researchers from the Faculty of West Virginia University (WVU) Medicine

The diminished capacity of the blood vessels increases the risk of stroke, heart attack and other cardiovascular problems. This study was conducted using a rat model. Female rats were exposed to e-cigarette aerosol for one hour a day for five days a week during pregnancy. The pups were examined at XNUMX, XNUMX and XNUMX months (adulthood), at which point the adverse effects of vaping were discovered.

Many women with a strong response to ovarian stimulation run a high health risk if they become pregnant in the same attempt. This can be avoided by giving up the immediate transfer of the embryos resulting from stimulation and postponing this intervention until later, when the transfer can be performed without ovarian stimulation, using previously frozen embryos.
