Dehydroepiandrosterone sulphate promotes hyaluronic acid-induced cervical ripening in rabbits. (1/94)

Hyaluronic acid (HA) stimulates the synthesis of interleukin (IL) 8, while dehydroepiandrosterone sulphate (DHEA-S) induces the expression of IL-8 and its receptor in the human cervical fibroblast. This has led us to investigate the effect of DHEA-S on HA-induced cervical ripening. Experiments were performed in pregnant rabbits using vaginal suppositories containing 1 mg HA, 30 mg DHEA-S, 30 mg DHEA-S + 0.1 mg HA, 30 mg DHEA-S + 1 mg HA, and 500 microl Witepsol-50 base (control). The effects were evaluated by measuring collagenase, gelatinase and elastase activities, water content, neutrophil infiltration, relative collagen concentration and histological assessment. The activities of collagenase, gelatinase and elastase were significantly increased in rabbits treated with DHEA-S + 1 mg HA compared with rabbits treated with DHEA-S + 0.1 mg HA (P < 0.009, P < 0.001, P < 0.009 respectively). Water content was markedly increased in rabbits treated with DHEA-S + 1 mg HA compared with DHEA-S + 0.1 mg HA treatment (P < 0.05). Neutrophil infiltration was markedly increased, while relative collagen concentration was significantly decreased with DHEA-S + 1 mg HA compared with the DHEA-S + 0.1 mg HA approach (P < 0.001, P < 0.002). The histology of cervices treated with DHEA-S + 1 mg HA showed the density of collagen to be markedly decreased, and collagen fibres irregularly separated. Increased vascularity with massive dilatation of blood vessels was also observed in these rabbits. We conclude that DHEA-S upregulates the HA-induced cervical ripening process.  (+info)

Current trends in cervical ripening and labor induction. (2/94)

Labor is induced in more than 13 percent of deliveries in the United States. Postdate pregnancy is the most common indication. Oxytocin is the drug of choice for labor induction when the cervical examination shows that the cervix is favorable. The use of this agent requires experience and vigilant observation for uterine hyperstimulation, hypertonus or maternal fluid overload. In a patient whose cervix is unfavorable, the use of prostaglandin analogs for cervical ripening markedly enhances the success of inductions. Misoprostol, a prostaglandin E1 analog marketed as a gastrointestinal mucosal protective agent, is safe, efficacious and inexpensive for use in cervical ripening and labor induction. Further studies will better delineate its optimal use. Family physicians need to be familiar with the various methods of cervical ripening and labor induction.  (+info)

Nitric oxide donors stimulate prostaglandin F(2alpha) and inhibit thromboxane B(2) production in the human cervix during the first trimester of pregnancy. (3/94)

Nitric oxide (NO) donors are capable of ripening the human cervix during pregnancy. The purpose of this study was to examine how NO donors may be involved in this process. Cervical biopsies were obtained from pregnant women randomized to receive isosorbide mononitrate (n = 10) or no treatment (n = 10) prior to suction termination. Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISA) were performed on culture supernatant for interleukin (IL)-1, IL-6, IL-8, IL-10, IL-15, tumour necrosis factor-alpha, monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 and prostaglandin metabolites. Immunohistochemistry was performed to localize these cytokines, cyclooxygenase (COX)-1, COX-2 and prostaglandin dehydrogenase in cervical tissue and reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) to identify COX-1 and COX-2 expression. Biopsies treated with the NO donor isosorbide mononitrate (IMN) produced significantly greater amounts of prostaglandin F(2alpha) in culture and lower amounts of thromboxane B(2) than controls (572.8 versus 34.9 pg/ml, P < 0.05; 53.3 pg/ml versus 530.9 pg/ml, P < 0.01 respectively). The release of other prostaglandins and of cytokines was not affected by treatment with NO. Inflammatory mediators were localized to cervical tissue and COX-1 and COX-2 expression was confirmed by RT-PCR. In conclusion, the mechanism of NO donor-induced cervical ripening during pregnancy may be mediated in part via increased prostaglandin F(2alpha) synthesis.  (+info)

Male and female isoenzymes of steroid 5alpha-reductase. (4/94)

There are two steroid 5alpha-reductase isoenzymes, designated type 1 and type 2, in mammals and recent experiments show that each plays a unique physiological role. In this article, the hypothesis is developed that the type 1 gene specifies a female isoenzyme, whereas the type 2 gene specifies a male isoenzyme. This idea results from the following observations. First, mutation of the 5alpha-reductase type 1 gene in mice affects reproduction in females by decreasing fecundity and blocking parturition, but has no effect on reproduction in males. Second, mutation of the 5alpha-reductase type 2 gene in mice and men prevents proper virilization but does not affect development or reproductive function in females. Analyses of these diverse phenotypes indicate that the isoenzymes catalyse both anabolic and catabolic reactions in steroid hormone metabolism.  (+info)

Human cervical ripening, an inflammatory process mediated by cytokines. (5/94)

An extensive remodelling process, referred to as cervical ripening, takes place in the cervical tissue during pregnancy and labour. It is recognized as softening and dilation of the cervical canal, and starts as a slow process during pregnancy, becoming rapid close to partum. In this study we focus on cytokines as possible mediators of this final remodelling. mRNA levels for interleukin (IL)-8, IL-6 and granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) were upregulated in the ripe postpartum cervical tissue (n = 8) compared to the unripe state (n = 9). Likewise, released cytokine concentrations increased from non-pregnant (n = 11) to the term-pregnant group (n = 13) with a further increase at partum (n = 16). IL-8 concentrations increased 4-fold from non-pregnant to term-pregnant (P<0.01), and a further 10-fold to postpartum state (P<0.0001). Concentrations of IL-6 and G-CSF were similarly increased. Specific IL-8 immunostaining was identified in the epithelia of pregnant cervical tissue (n = 7) and was most pronounced in the epithelia and stroma of postpartum tissue (n = 4). In conclusion, IL-8, IL-6 and G-CSF increase in the human cervix during the ripening process, indicating their important role in the cervical remodelling. These data demonstrate that cervical ripening is similar to an inflammatory process.  (+info)

Studies of cervical ripening in pregnant rats: effects of various treatments. (6/94)

The exact mechanisms that regulate cervical softening or ripening during pregnancy are not completely understood. The aim of this study was to estimate the effects of various agents on cervical softening during pregnancy in rats. Cervical resistance was examined after treatment with nitric oxide (NO) donors and inhibitors and different hormonal agents. Cervical resistance was significantly reduced (P< 0.05) in rats treated with the NO donors: sodium nitroprusside, molsidomine and prostaglandin E(2). However, treatments with the NO synthase (NOS) inhibitors N(omega)-nitro-L-arginine methyl ester (L-NAME) and L-N(6)-1-iminoethyl-lysine (L-NIL), or the prostaglandin synthesis inhibitor, indomethacin, significantly increased resistance (P<0.05). The antiprogesterone, onapristone, reduced cervical resistance and its effects were only partially blocked by the progesterone agonist, promegestone. Relaxin reduced cervical resistance and NOS inhibitors partially blocked the effect of relaxin. These studies demonstrate that NO regulates cervical ripening. Relaxin also softens the cervix and may act by stimulating NO synthesis. Progesterone seems important in the control of cervical ripening, but its role appears complex. NO and prostaglandin pathways may independently control ripening by acting in parallel or synergistically.  (+info)

Prostaglandin E2 gel In ripening of cervix in induction of labour. (7/94)

A study was done in 75 patients who underwent induction of labour with Prostaglandin E2 gel. All these patients had an unripe cervix. The commonest indications were post-datism, intrauterine growth retardation and pregnancy-induced hypertension. All patients were primigravidas with singleton pregnancy and beyond 35 weeks of pregnancy. The mean Bishop score at the time of instillation was less than three. The improvement of another 2-3 points within six hours and by 7-8 points within 12 hours was found after instillation of the gel. 92% of the patients went into spontaneous labour and 8% required reinstillation. The incidence of failed induction was 1.33%. The mean duration of latent phase was 10.34 hours. Induction delivery time was 16.43 hours. 68.1% patients required augmentation of labour and 31.9% did not require augmentation of labour with oxytocin drip. The incidence of vaginal delivery was 81.33% and that of caesarean section was 17.33%. The commonest indication of caesarean section was foetal distress.  (+info)

The cervix as a predictor of preterm delivery in 'at-risk' women. (8/94)

OBJECTIVE: To examine the relationship between ultrasound-determined cervical status and pregnancy outcome in women 'at-risk' of spontaneous preterm delivery. DESIGN: A prospective cohort study of 120 pregnant women considered to be 'at-risk' of spontaneous preterm delivery by their clinician. Transvaginal ultrasound of the cervix was used to assess overall cervical length, closed endocervical canal length, diameter and internal os dilatation in the second trimester. The main outcome measure was occurrence of spontaneous preterm birth (< 34 and < 37 weeks of gestation). RESULTS: The overall preterm delivery rate (< 37 weeks gestation) in these women was 35% (n = 42) with 20% (n = 24) delivering < 34 weeks gestation. Of the 71 women with a normal cervix, 8 (11%) delivered < 34 weeks, whereas of the 49 women with an abnormal cervix, 16 (33%) delivered < 34 weeks (RR 2.90; 95% CI 1.35-6.24). Using linear regression, closed endocervical canal length of < 21 mm before 20 weeks is associated with delivery < 34 weeks in 95% of women, and with delivery < 37 weeks in 95% of women if the canal length is < 33 mm. Logistic regression showed closed endocervical canal length to be the only significant factor in those women who delivered < 34 weeks after controlling for possible confounders. CONCLUSIONS: A strong relationship is demonstrated between cervical status and pregnancy outcome, particularly the cervical findings before 20 and 24 weeks of gestation. The length of the closed portion of the endocervical canal is the best predictor. A beneficial effect of this approach to 'at-risk' women is the reduction in unnecessary interventions in those with normal cervical findings.  (+info)

Bishop score, also Bishops score, also known as cervix score is a pre-labor scoring system to assist in predicting whether induction of labor will be required. It has also been used to assess the odds of spontaneous preterm delivery. The Bishop Score was developed by Dr. Edward Bishop and was published in August 1964. The total score is achieved by assessing the following five components on vaginal examination: Cervical dilation Cervical effacement Cervical consistency Cervical position Fetal station The Bishop score grades patients who would be most likely to achieve a successful induction. The duration of labor is inversely correlated with the Bishop score; a score that exceeds 8 describes the patient most likely to achieve a successful vaginal birth. Bishop scores of less than 6 usually require that a cervical ripening method be used before other methods. They can be remembered with the mnemonic: Call PEDS For Parturition = Cervical Position, Effacement, Dilation, Softness; Fetal Station. ...

Bishop Tissier de Mallerais: Archbishop Lefebvre told us: You are bishops for the Church, for the Society; you will give the sacrament of Confirmation and confer Holy Orders; you will preach the faith. That is all. He did not say, I confer these powers to you; he simply indicated to us what our role would be. The jurisdiction that he did not give us-which he could not give us-and which the pope refused to give us, has been supplied by the Church, who gives it to us because of the state of necessity of the faithful. It is a suppletory jurisdiction, of the same nature as that which is accorded to priests by Canon Law in other cases of necessity. An example would be the jurisdiction to administer the sacrament of confession validly in the case of common error or positive and probable doubt, of right or of fact, about the jurisdiction of a priest (canon 209). In such a case, the Church has the habit of supplying the jurisdiction that might be lacking to the minister: Ecclesia supplet ...

The bishop stood on the pavement outside Dr. Brighton-Pomfreys house. The massive door had closed behind him.. It had been an act of courage, of rashness if you will, to take this draught. He was acutely introspective, ready for anything, for the most disagreeable or the most bizarre sensations. He was asking himself, Were his feet steady? Was his head swimming?. His doubts glowed into assurance.. Suddenly he perceived that he was sure of God.. Not perhaps of the God of Nicæa, but what did these poor little quibblings and definitions of the theologians matter? He had been worrying about these definitions and quibblings for four long restless years. Now they were just failures to express-what surely every one knew-and no one would ever express exactly. Because here was God, and the kingdom of God was manifestly at hand. The visible world hung before him as a mist might hang before the rising sun. He stood proudly and masterfully facing a universe that had heretofore bullied him into doubt and ...

Seriously though he and our family was so blessed these last 2 years. While getting his MBA Ethan got a promotion at work which was so wonderful, but added some time and stress, he was made 2nd counselor in the bishopric, made 1st counselor in bishopric, his wife had #3 baby, he was made bishop, and then his wife went a little crazy (baby hormones+RSV+bishop wife=crazy) for 3 weeks. Maybe I am still a little crazy but doing much better. Anyway, he is so amazing, how he has been able to manage everything.

In recent years, there has been recognition that if the cervix is unfavorable, labor will rarely progress successfully to a vaginal delivery. Bishop attempted to define parameters of successful or failed labor induction with a cervical scoring system. Successful outcomes of cervical ripening include vaginal delivery without prolonged labor times, no increase in infection rates and good neonatal outcomes. Although the Bishop score is widely accepted, and it is agreed that progressive cervical dilatation will rarely occur unless softening and distensibility occur first, the task of "motivating" the cervix to achieve an optimal Bishop score has been challenging and frustrating.. What is the most optimal cervical ripening agent? The safety profile, efficacy and cost should figure into the decision analysis as each agent is compared in a randomized, controlled study. Although an effective labor-inducing agent, oxytocin (Pitocin) has not proved to be the best cervical ripening agent. Mechanical ...

Bishop was deeply involved in the Malfi Blood-Sworn, achieving the rank of Blood Angel.. Later on in life he met a women, had a daughter. When he met his wife, Bishop was getting ready to retire. He had 7 more contracts to complete before he could. He wanted to protect his family from his other life, in order to do that he had to hide his family life from the Fellowship. This in no way was an easy task, it caused a lot of harsh relationships. Time with the family meant time away from the Fellowship and vice-versa. He established himself as a trader with his wife so long times away were no problem, and contracts were carried out throughout the Verse rarely returning to the Fellowship after completing one. There was plenty of time to slip in and spend some time with his family, and slip out to complete a contract. However contracts started to take longer and longer to complete as Bishop tried to spend more time with his family. The Arch Blood Angel Demetris was getting impatient with ...

Why The Heck Is Amtrak Still In Business After Losing Money 43 Years Straight?. Rep. Bishop is right about one thing: Amtrak is moving, deeper into debt and irrelevancy.. Regarding the promise that the Affordable Care Act would expand rather than restrict access to health care and health insurance, Bishop emphasized:. 85% of Americans have coverage. But 85% of Americans dont have coverage that they can count on. Were trying to guarantee people that they can keep their coverage.. What happened in New York State after Obamacare? Deroy Murdock is losing his health coverage, and Avik Roy discussed the rising health care premiums for New Yorkers.

Thus this process has no parallel in the law at all, unless it would be the impeachment of a sitting President---but that is not a judicial process, either. There is no one body in the Episcopal Church (USA) which has the power to interpret Canon IV.9 in a definitive and authoritative (binding) manner. General Convention does not sit in judgment on a bishop; all it can do is change or amend canons which practice shows are ambiguous. The House of Bishops might be considered as such a body in the case of Canon IV.9, except that it no longer meets with a full complement of bishops who are canonically entitled to vote. (The last time it did so meet to depose a bishop, in the case of Bishop McCoskry of Michigan in 1878, the meeting had to be adjourned several times until enough bishops could be brought back from their vacations to make the required majority of the whole number entitled to vote. See the description and links in this post.) The House of Bishops alone has no authority to amend a canon, ...
Just a quick post. The NYTimes has an article saying that the Church of England has just voted to ordain women as bishops. A schism is threatened. This is the 21st century. Things are worse than I thought. Women cant be bishops because none of the 12 disciples were women. Evidently no one read Luke 8. No one seems to give Mary Magadalene the status she deserves. No one, other than some Samaritans listened to the nameless woman at the well. Folks seem quite content to read the Bible as long as it says what they want it to say. (Im in that camp too ...
Bishop John H. Koyle was shown an ancient nephite mine by heavenly messengers and and also shown the future by 2 translated nephite apostles in 1914. His life mission . . . the Relief Mine is located on the foot hills east of Salem, Utah. He was told that it will be opened and mined again when the United States goes into an 80% economic crash. Shortly after that the President of the United States and his VP are killed and the federal government no longer exists for a period of time. The gold from the mine will be the means of keeping the local economy prospering. Millions of refuges will flee to the Rocky Mountains as seen by Pres. John Taylor when chaos is let loose just as Joseph Smith prophecied. This mine will be part of the financial means of beginning and maintaining the political Kingdom of God as it grows to become the most powerful kingdom on earth.

Theres another problem with gradualism, when it means "dragging ones feet" and not "making a change slow enough to adapt to," which is that you lose people along the way. It was one of those pronouncements about how the church would never accept women as priests, or as bishops, that made me decide to leave it. If I wasnt welcome for full participation, I wasnt goiung to support it as a follower. I think that thousands of women probably made similar decisions over the years and that the secular decline of the church has much to do with a silent boycott. People havent lost their need for community, their urge to help others, or their hunger for spiritual comfort. Theyve just moved on to other, secular sources, from the environmental movement to clinic defences to New Age snake oil. ...

Linebacker Desmond Bishop, the latest former Green Bay Packers player to come to Minnesota, said Tuesday that he joined the Vikings largely because of the opportunity to play against his old team twice a season.. Bishop signed a one-year deal reportedly worth between $840,000 and $1.35 million, depending on incentives.. "That was part of the reason," Bishop told the NFL Network. "I had a lot of people call and text saying, Oh, you want to get back at the Packers. Its not about that. I think its more of trying to play the best. If I can get the chance to play against Aaron Rodgers, I think that, right there, is motivation. You want to play against the best. When I was playing for Green Bay, the games I cherished the most were against the Vikings, because I got to play against Adrian Peterson. Thats my mindset. I want to play against the best. The opportunity to play Aaron Rodgers two times a year, that was something I liked.". Bishop said he had no hard feelings for the Packers, who released ...

Seasons Greetings, Whanau.. We have shifted!. Just over two weeks ago we moved into Thorndon. After living in the beautiful Reikorangi Valley for nearly 11 years it feels good but strange to be back in the city. The shift went well so thank you to everybody who helped carry boxes, etc.. Due to the shift Jenny and I have been thinking a lot about transitions. Its a little easier for me as I have at least been present in the role for 18 months; whereas Jenny is transitioning on numerous fronts. She is leaving leadership in Urban Vision, leaving Ngatiawa (our home), two of our three children are leaving home, and finally Jenny is relocating more into wider Diocesan life.. As I reflect on our transitions and the accompanying stress, anxiety and fears, it also makes me think of the Diocese at this season. The Diocese is in the middle of transition; transition with a new Bishop, with changes in approaches to ministry and mission. With this season of change in the Diocese, we can all feel the classic ...

Several years ago in Germany, while giving the sacrament of confirmation, a bishop was questioning the children who were about to be confirmed: "Who can administer the sacrament of confirmation?", he asked. A young girl answered: "Any bishop, once hes attained the age of reason!". Our old catechisms used to tell us that we reach the age of reason at, roughly, age seven. At one level, thats true, we can be responsible for ourselves then in a way we couldnt when we were toddlers or in kindergarten. But it takes a lot longer than age seven, a lifetime really, to be in full ownership of ourselves. And so, at another level, we might better peg the age of reason sometime after age 30, when we have a more responsible sense of who we are, what our lives mean, and what decisions we need to make in order to bring life to ourselves and thers. Its takes a long time before we can be really responsible.. But theres a further problem, by the time we reach maturity, we have also lost some vital, ...
Anon United States Reply » Report Abuse Judge it! #66 8 min ago I see this was given to Rick so it would take everyone forever to get through it. Right off I see some increases in the commissioners office. Kathryn Bishop was $ 11.82 in 2006 and now is $ 19.27. INTERESTING.

So much for no pay increases.Thanks Rick for all your work! No, idiot. Staci did not get a pay increase for the same work.

We are human, and we did not create ourselves. We were created by an Other-an infinite, and infinitely great, Other. Our most important characteristic as humans is that we have desire-we long for this infinite Other. Only the infinite Other can actually satisfy our deep desire. One may think that a certain special job, or a getting a certain person to be ones spouse, or having more money, or a new car, or gratifying a sexual urge, will satisfy ones heart and bring happiness. But that is not actually possible. One gets a new job, marries a beautiful wife, wins the lottery, buys a new BMW, or has a pleasurable and gratifying sexual experience, and it is not enough. The aching desire of the heart remains bereft and unfulfilled ...

This is a good analysis Steve. It will be interesting to see how far Pope Francis goes. It will depend, as you say, whether he has the nerve. Hes an old guy, and he may not have the nerve to go further in the direction he has gone. In any event, he has opened a door, and at a minimum, this recent synod ended up confirming that the German bishops can do their own thing. There will be others who also go in their own directions, on other topics. And some, in the future, no doubt, will fall under the doctrinal heading. It will make it more difficult in case there is a conservative pope coming up to reverse this trend ...

You probably heard that Pope Benedict removed Bishop William Morris of Toowoomba, Australia from office after he refused to resign. The bishop had called for discussion of ordination of married men and women in light of the severe clergy crisis. He indicated his willingness to ordain married men and women, but only if the Holy See approved it. A small group in his diocese repeatedly complained about him in Rome over the years, to receptive ears. An apostolic visitation was led by Archbishop Chaput of Denver. Bishop Morris notes that he has never seen the Vatican report from the visitation and was not given an opportunity to respond to it.. The executive of the National Council of Priests in Australia issued a media release today stating they are "appalled at the lack of transparency and due process that led to this decision." They are "embarrassed about the shabby treatment meted out" to the bishop. They state, "Jesus rightly condemned the righteous scribes and Pharisees of his time for adhering ...

Speaking during the State Coordinators Executive session of General Association of all Igbo Christian Organizations and Ministers (GAAICOM) which held last Monday at Enugu, the Abia State coordinator, Bishop Isaac Eze advocated the use of Prayer Haram as means of tackling the insurgency. According to Bishop Eze this battle has surpassed the government. The explosion on Nyanya Bridge and numerous others has shown that government is overwhelmed already and it is time for God to be solicited for solution. I advocate the use of Payer Haram, which is warfare prayers targeted at the demons using Boko Haram members to perpetrate evil" Bishop Eze reiterated that" if Christians will stand in the place of prayer, and confront the evil spirit behind Boko Haram, the God of Heaven will hear and drive the demons away ...

Winner of the 2001 Best Exported British Cheese Award, Stinking Bishop is a washed rind cheese dating back to the Cistercian monks who once settled in Dymock where this cheese is made. Our variety is now made by Charles Martell, who works endlessly to carry on the traditional products of Gloucestershire. Washed in fermented pear juice (also called "Perry"), the cheese develops a stinky, pungent, orange-colored, sticky rind as Brevibacterium linens ripen the cheese from the inside out. At room temperature, this cheese will run across a plate. Named after the Stinking Bishop pear varietal from Gloucestershire, this cheese is a spectacular dairy experience. ...
For work in cancer research, J. Michael Bishop shared the 1989 Nobel Prize inphysiology or medicine with Harold Varmus. He and Varmus found that cancer genes (oncogenes) could be derived from normal cell genes which had notbeen inherently cancer-causing, as was previously thought; they stopped normal functioning and became cancerous under certain conditions. In presenting the Nobel Prize, Erling Norrby of the Karolinska Institute praised them for their discovery of "the cellular origin of retroviral oncogenes," and claimed they had "set in motion an avalanche of research on factors that govern the normal growth of cells.". John Michael Bishop was born February 22, 1936, to John and Carrie Grey Bishop. The family, which included another son and daughter, lived in York, Pennsylvania, where John Bishop was a Lutheran minister. Bishops early schooling was almost entirely devoid of science, and even when he entered Gettysburg College in 1953 as a premedical student, he had no firm plans for a ...
Sixty four patients with a diagnosis of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma and primary testicular involvement were identified. Median age was 67. All patients had initial surgery including bilateral orchiectomy in 5 patients. Majority of patients (n = 48, 75%) were in clinical stage IE ad IIE at presentation.

Hazel Gladys Bishop (August 17, 1906 - December 5, 1998) was an American chemist and the founder of the cosmetics company Hazel Bishop, Inc. She was the inventor of the first long-lasting lipstick. She was born in Hoboken, New Jersey, one of two children of businessman Henry Bishop and his wife Mabel. Her father ran a dozen successful enterprises that included numerous stores on Washington Street, which was the main concourse of Hoboken. During one Thanksgiving, her father brought Santa Claus to town on an elephant to advertise his candy emporium. According to her, the family talk around the dinner table was always about business. She attended Barnard College in New York, originally enrolling in pre-med, with intentions of becoming a physician. She was graduated by Barnard in 1929 with a degree in pre-med, with plans on attending Columbia for her graduate medical studies. She began graduate classes in the fall of 1929, but the stock market crash that occurred in October of that same year lead to ...

  • The measured cervical resistance and intraoperative blood loss with either dose of isosorbide mononitrate did not differ from those in a comparison group of 22 parous women not in the randomised trial. (nih.gov)
  • In contrast, we confirmed in the same study that isosorbide mononitrate (IMN) (administered on an inpatient basis) was both effective in inducing cervical ripening at term, and was associated with no associated fetal heart rate abnormalities. (ed.ac.uk)
  • We aim to investigate methods and use of cervical ripening in women without and with a prior cesarean delivery in The Netherlands. (hindawi.com)
  • Women were excluded for admission cervical examination >2 cm, ruptured membranes, chorioamnionitis or evidence of systemic infection, placental abruption, low-lying placenta, >1 prior cesarean delivery, or contraindication to vaginal delivery. (ovid.com)
  • we measured cervical diameter with ultrasound cervimetry together with EMG-activity of the myometrium, cervical outer muscular layer (COML) and cervical stromal layer (CSL). (uu.nl)
  • Mechanical devices, various prostaglandin preparations, and local application of estrogen and relaxin are currently vying to be the cervical ripening agent of choice. (aafp.org)
  • Preterm ripening induced by progesterone withdrawal results from the combined activation of processes that occur during term ripening and shortly postpartum. (redorbit.com)
  • Increased interleukin-6 concentrations in cervical secretions are associated with preterm delivery. (biomedsearch.com)
  • The immune system or inflammatory response is sufficient to cause cervical ripening, but it's not absolutely necessary for it to happen," said Dr. Brenda Timmons, research scientist in obstetrics and gynecology and co-lead author of the study. (redorbit.com)
  • Higher Bishop score indicates higher cervical ripening and increased likelihood of vaginal delivery (1-3). (ac.ir)
  • 149 women were randomized, 74 for cervical ripening and induction with mifepristone (200mg orally at the moment of enrollment and, if applicable, second dose after 24h), 75 - expectant management. (nih.gov)
  • Women in the simultaneous group were significantly more likely to deliver within 24 hours of cervical ripening balloon placement compared to the sequential group (87.8% vs 73.3%, P = .02). (ovid.com)
  • Since date fruit is full of energy and nutrients, it is recommended for pregnant women to help with cervical ripening, particularly in the last weeks of gestation. (ac.ir)
  • There was no difference in the baseline diameter of the cervical opening between the placebo group (6.1 ± 1.4 cm) and the misoprostol groups (6.3 ± 2.1 cm). (ovid.com)
  • After calving, the cervical diameter measured initially 6 cm, increased during the first 15 h and decreased afterwards. (uu.nl)
  • Cervical biopsies were repeatedly taken from 10 pregnant cows at days 185 and 275 of gestation, at calving and 30 days afterwards, and analysed with immuno histochemistry and RT-PCR (n=5). (uu.nl)
