The GBS incidence ranged from 0-3.06 per 1000 live births with variation within and between geographic regions. All but one study identified GBS cases within a hospital setting despite the potential for births in the community. Possible case under-ascertainment was only discussed in two studies.

... Women's Health. Health Education Library. Pregnancy, Birth, and Baby Center High-Risk Pregnancy - Group B Streptococcus What is group B streptococcus. Group B streptococcus GBS is a bacterium that can be found in the digestive tract, urinary tract, and genital area of adults. Although GBS infection usually does not cause problems in healthy women before pregnancy, it can cause serious illness for the mother and baby during pregnancy and after delivery. Newborns can contract GBS during pregnancy, or from the mother's genital tract during labor and delivery. If a pregnant woman who is a group B strep carrier does not get antibiotics at the time of delivery, her baby has a 1 in 200 chance of developing GBS disease. Although it is very rare, GBS infection may also develop in babies one week to several months after birth, called late-onset disease. Only about half of late-onset GBS disease among newborns comes from a mother who is a GBS carrier. Most newborns with GBS infection have symptoms in the first few ...

... Back to recommendations. The UK NSC recommendation on Group B Streptococcus screening in pregnancy. Recommendation Systematic population screening programme not recommended. The current UK rate of early onset GBS is comparable to that in countries in which screening is recommended. In the absence of a diagnostic test, current screening strategies are unable to distinguish between carriers whose babies will be affected by early onset GBS and those which would not. It's estimated that about one in four pregnant women in the UK carry GBS. Around the time of labour and birth, many babies come into contact with GBS and are colonised by the bacteria. Most pregnant women who carry GBS bacteria have healthy babies. Extremely rarely, GBS infection during pregnancy can also cause miscarriage, early premature labour or stillbirth. If a baby develops GBS infection less than seven days after birth, it's known as early-onset GBS infection. It's estimated that about one in 2,000 babies born in the UK and Ireland develo...

... Name = Group B streptococcal infection. In the UK, cultures are not routinely taken from pregnant women for testing, but rather women are treated according to their risk in labor – antibiotics are given to women where GBS has been found incidentally from their urine or vaginal/rectal swabs taken during the pregnancy, women who have previously had a baby infected with GBS disease, women whose membranes are ruptured more than 18 hours and those who have fever in labor. Research has shown that testing pregnant women, using the more sensitive ECM tests, and giving antibiotics in labour to those carrying GBS and to high-risk women, was significantly more cost-effective than using a risk-factor approach. Testing women for GBS colonisation using vaginal or rectal swabs at 35–37 weeks of gestation and culturing them in enriched media—as practised in many countries—may not be quite as sensitive as a PCR test in labour would be at predicting whether the pregnant woman is carrying GBS at delivery.

... Lab identification Virulence GBS colonization Prevention of neonatal infection Screening for GBS colonization. GBS infections in newborns are separated into two clinical syndromes, early-onset disease EOD and late-onset disease LOD. Roughly 50% of newborns to GBS colonized mothers are also GBS colonized and without prevention measures 1–2% of these newborns will develop EOD. The culture-based screening approach identifies candidates to receive IAP using lower vaginal and rectal cultures obtained between 35 and 37 week’s gestation, and IAP is administered to all GBS colonized women. Additionally IAP is also recommended for women with intrapartum risk factors if their GBS carrier status is not known at the time of delivery, for women with GBS bacteriuria during their pregnancy, and for women who have had an infant with EOD previously. The risk-based approach for IAP is in general less effective than the culture-based approach because in most of the cases EOD develops among newborns, which are born to mothe...

*  GBS in the Urine (GBS bacteriuria) Frequently asked Questions
If GBS is in my urine and it's treated now, will my baby get sick anyway. Most women who know they carry GBS in the vagina or rectum choose to get IV antibiotics in labor to prevent the chance of infecting baby during labor, when it's most common for baby to be exposed to the bacteria. Most of the time, treating in labor with IV antibiotics can prevent the infection in baby. Women with higher levels of GBS in the vagina are more likely to have a sick child if they are not treated with antibiotics. Women with GBS bacteriuria during pregnancy usually are heavily colonized with GBS and appear to be at increased risk for perinatal transmission CDC, MMWR May 31, 1996 / 45 RR-7 ;1-24 Prevention of Perinatal Group B Streptococcal Disease: A Public Health Perspective Wood EG, Dillon HC.

That's because most people who have GBS don't know that they have it and experience no problems. Effects on the Body Although GBS generally does not cause any problems, some people who have it get sick. Women also can pass the infection to their babies during labor and delivery. Diagnosis Pregnant women are routinely tested for GBS late in the pregnancy, usually between weeks 35 and 37. When a test detects the presence of GBS, the woman is said to be "GBS positive." This result means only that she has the bacteria in her body not that she or her baby will become sick from it.

/ Antenatal / GBS Cochrane Report. Share. GBS Cochrane Report. Intrapartum antibiotics for known maternal Group B streptococcal colonization. About one in 2000 newborn babies have Group B streptococcus bacterial infections, usually evident as respiratory disease, general sepsis, or meningitis within the first week. The baby contracts the infection from the mother during labor. Some risk factors for an affected baby are preterm and low birth weight; prolonged labor; prolonged rupture of the membranes more than 12 hours ; severe changes in fetal heart rate during the first stage of labor; and gestational diabetes. Very few of the women in labor who are GBS positive give birth to babies who are infected with GBS and antibiotics can have harmful effects such as severe maternal allergic reactions, increase in drug-resistant organisms and exposure of newborn infants to resistant bacteria, and postnatal maternal and neonatal yeast infections. The review identified four trials involving 852 GBS positive women. Three ...

Between 20-30% of women carry GBS in their intestines without symptoms and roughly a quarter of women of childbearing age carry GBS in the vagina at any one time. GBS is a normal body commensal an organism that lives on another without harming it. Key Recommendations. Our medical panel’s key recommendations for better prevention of group B Strep infection in newborn babies. With a disease as serious as GBS, prevention is much better than treatment. The best preventative treatment or prophylactic treatment for GBS developing in newborn babies is giving intravenous antibiotics to the mother during labour. Current UK guidelines on group B Strep. We want to see the national guidelines for preventing group B Strep infections in newborn babies updated, to reverse the rising incidence of what is a largely preventable disease. We are c...

Other patients who are at risk for invasive GAS disease are patients with GAS infections that can easily progress into deep fat and muscle for example, a GAS infection near the scrotum or anus or an abscess in the skin and can progress to necrotizing fasciitis. Question: What were the signs and symptoms associated with your GAS infection, and what type did you have.

Recently a great deal of progress has been made in identifying the earliest signs of autism and related autistic spectrum disorders ASD. This has been made possible largely through prospective studies of high risk infants all with an older sibling with ASD, in which it has been possible to identify infants suspected of having autism by as early as 12-18 months. This intervention protocol is implemented in a home setting and incorporates principles of parent responsiveness training and applied behavioral analysis. During a period of 6 months, parents will receive intensive training and comprehensive clinical support in order to determine if this intervention changes the developmental trajectory of toddlers considered at high risk for developing autism.

(1/7) Unfinished feticide: the ethical problems.

Dr. Jansen's paper raises three main issues. The one with which he himself is most concerned is the question of which methods of abortion are ethically right, and whether methods which risk the birth of a damaged baby are wrong. But there are two others: first, how the (originally unintended) birth of a live but damaged child alters the moral situation, and secondly, whether the overcoming of sterility by inducing a multiple pregnancy in which some of the fetuses have to be killed in order for any of them to survive is at all morally acceptable.  (+info)

(2/7) Unfinished feticide: a legal commentary.

Jansen expresses concern as to the legal implications of both selective reduction of pregnancy and unsuccessful attempts at termination of pregnancy using mifepristone. This commentary examines the legality of both procedures and concludes that Jansen is over-optimistic in his belief that neither procedure is likely to fall foul of the criminal laws on induced abortion. By contrast his anxieties about civil liability arising from the subsequent live birth of a damaged infant are, it is suggested, unnecessarily pessimistic. Such an action is most unlikely to succeed if brought by the infant herself and any claim on the part of the mother will normally be dependent on proof of negligence. The commentary focusses on the law in England with relevant references to other common law jurisdictions.  (+info)

How is congenital heart disease related to a faulty signal transduction pathway?


I can find plenty of information on congenital heart disease and plenty of information on cell signaling/signal transduction but i cant find out how they are related can anyone help?
----------

In some cases of congenital heart disease there are physical malformations that can cause electrical signals from one area of the heart to another area to be attenuated or timed incorrectly.  The signal transduction pathway may be operating at the cellular level as it should.   If the signals received to initiate the complex process are weak or not timed properly the resulting release of glucose to power the heart muscle may not be sufficient to sustain normal heart function.     Muscle contractions may be either weak or not timed properly to co-ordinate with other heart muscles.  In some cases there may be a lack of sufficient amount of a particular enzyme which may result in the signal transduction pathway within the cell to function improperly.  As you may be aware from your research, normal heart function is a very complex process involving a great number of steps which all must take place in proper sequence.  The number of steps within the cell alone are very complex.  I hope that gives you some insight on the subject.

Is Congenital Heart Disease a disease that is associated with aging?


I am doing a project about Congenital Heart Disease for my sophmore Health Academy Focus.....
I need to know if Congenital Heart Disease is associated with aging.....If possilbe can you also give me links on places where I can find more information on the topic.
thank you
----------

Congenital means it was present at birth.  It is not associated with aging, although it may be undetected until adulthood, depending on its severity.


What are the chances of one parent having congenital heart disease of passing it onto their children?


Hello,

My husband was born with congenital heart disease (tetralogy of fallot),  he is however an otherwise healthy 25 year old with no history of heart disease in his family background.  I am a fit and healthy 24 year old with no background of heart disease in my family.  I would like to know what are the statistics/chances that our children would end up being born with congenital heart disease?

How does hereditary diseases start in the first place?


today i was diagnosed with astigmatism and the doc said it is mostly hereditary. okay, then how did my ancestor get it in the first place?
----------

There can be many causes, but i think it basically comes down to an error in copying the DNA (your genetic material you inherit from your parent and ancestors) during meiosis or mitosis (cell division). There are many ways errors can occur, such as missing one nucleotide or codon (sections in DNA) while copying the DNA, which can result in a very different protein or cell function. Another way is a section of DNA on a chromosome can switch places with another piece of DNA on a chromosome (i think this is called translocation). Another possible way is that it may be a sex linked XX (female) or XY (male) error. Because males dont have a complete chromosome  (Y instead of X) some diseases that occur in the XY chromosomes cannot be covered up by the other half of the opposite respective chromosome, and the defect will be seen in males but not females because they have the other half of the respective chromosome to block the effect of the defective gene (said to be dominant and recessive). 

Basically over time these errors can accumulate throughout descendants until it results in a defective protein in a cell, which performs the wrong function in a cell or in the body and causes disease. 

Im not sure how astigmatism is passed down through the generations and the exact mechanisms or procedures of how it works, but as far as i know, its possibly all the same ie. errors accumulate through descendants until one lucky person finds that these errors manifest themselves in this person. The first paragraph only goes into very brief detail of how this sometimes happens and there are many more ways it can happen i think. Sorry if i used too much technical jargon but its really hard to describe it without it and pictures. You would be best of asking someone who knows much than i do or watch some videos. It can become quite a complicated area.


What diseases can be cured by stem cells and how would the cells cure those specific diseases?


I need to know which diseases can be cured by Stem Cell treatment. I know that Parkinson's disease can be cured by this form of treatment but I need two other examples. I also need to know exactly how the cells will treat those specific diseases such as how the stem cells would target the motor cortex, causing a more sufficient amount of dopamine to be formed when treating Parkinson's disease.
Thanks,

Cat.

There are many hurdles before stem cell implantation can be a potential cure or treatment for Parkinson's disease.  At this point skin cells have been used but the long term results are not in yet.

Other conditions with a cure potential include diabetes type 1 (juvenile diabetes), ALS, Huntington's disease, Becker Muscular dystrophy (BMD), Down Syndrome, adenpsone deaminase deficiency (ADA-SCID), Gaucher disease type III, Schechman-Bodian-Diamons syndromw (SBDS)

What diseases that can be transmitted from animals to human and vice versa?


Tell me what diseases do you know that came from animals and transmitted to us. And also what ways we can prevent it.
----------

There are hundreds, way too many to list here!  You are referring to zoonoses, the term for a disease that can be passed from animals to humans and vice versa.  Zoonoses can be parasitical, fungal, bacterial, viral, and just plain "other".  They can be transmitted by cows, cats, dogs, birds, reptiles, and even fish.
