  • dystocia
  • The ability to accurately predict dystocia and the time of parturition will ensure that timely assistance can be given to animals that are of high risk of dystocia. (purdue.edu)
  • The present thesis contains four studies that explore methods to predict dystocia and the time of parturition as well as factors that influence the presentation and outcome of cesarean sections. (purdue.edu)
  • Collectively, the results presented in this thesis provide methods to predict dystocia and parturition in late gestating cattle as well as highlight factors that help ensure favorable outcomes from cesarean sections. (purdue.edu)
  • mTORC1
  • Using multiple approaches, we determined that p53 interacts with sestrins to coordinate an inverse relationship between AMPK and mTORC1 signaling that determines parturition timing. (jci.org)
  • Together, these results reveal that p53-dependent coordination of AMPK and mTORC1 signaling controls parturition timing and suggest that metformin and resveratrol have therapeutic potential to prevent PTB. (jci.org)
  • gestation
  • In early gestation, H3K27me3-induced transcriptional silencing of select gene targets ensured uterine quiescence by preventing the decidua from expressing parturition-inducing hormone receptors, manifesting type 1 immunity, and most unexpectedly, generating myofibroblasts and associated wound-healing responses. (jci.org)
  • Pharmacological inhibition of H3K27 demethylation in late gestation not only prevented term parturition, but also inhibited delivery while maintaining pup viability in a noninflammatory model of preterm parturition. (jci.org)
  • clinical
  • Labour is the clinical process of parturition. (conservapedia.com)
  • The third study, presented in chapter five, explored the clinical utility of blood and plasma glucose concentrations in predicting parturition as well as their relationship with hypercortisolemia and clinical signs associated with the activation of the sympathetic nervous system namely heart rate, respiratory rate, mean arterial blood pressure, hematocrit, and rumen contraction rate. (purdue.edu)
  • human
  • In some instances, human intervention of the parturition process is imperative to avoid pain, injury, and mortality of the neonate and the dam. (purdue.edu)
  • Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are involved in the extracellular matrix (ECM) remodeling during human placentation and parturition and have been shown to be associated with oxidative stress. (readbyqxmd.com)
  • Child
  • However, it is also clear from Shelley's narrative, that while the story of Victor Frankenstein and his creature replays aspects of the traumatic rupture between maternalised body and child, this violent parturition is also necessary for the production of any subjectivity, however fraught. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • delivery
  • Endogenous opioids play a significant role in mammalian parturition as well as in the behaviors associated with delivery itself and toward the emerging young. (mcmaster.ca)
  • One might hypothesize that if endogenous opioids facilitate maternal behavior and delivery, that the level of opioid present would be the same for the optimization of both dimensions of parturition. (mcmaster.ca)
  • accuracy
  • Blood glucose was determined to have the potential to predict parturition due to its accuracy, practicality, and cost effectiveness. (purdue.edu)
  • likely
  • 2. Sometimes questions arise how far means may be employed to promote parturition, which cause, or are likely to cause others in relation to it, but merely for his own share, and to the extent of his own several right and interest. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • 2. Sometimes questions arise bow far means may be employed to promote parturition, which cause, or are likely to cause, the death of the foetus. (thefreedictionary.com)
