Canine preprorelaxin: nucleic acid sequence and localization within the canine placenta. (1/382)

Employing uteroplacental tissue at Day 35 of gestation, we determined the nucleic acid sequence of canine preprorelaxin using reverse transcription- and rapid amplification of cDNA ends-polymerase chain reaction. Canine preprorelaxin cDNA consisted of 534 base pairs encoding a protein of 177 amino acids with a signal peptide of 25 amino acids (aa), a B domain of 35 aa, a C domain of 93 aa, and an A domain of 24 aa. The putative receptor binding region in the N'-terminal part of the canine relaxin B domain GRDYVR contained two substitutions from the classical motif (E-->D and L-->Y). Canine preprorelaxin shared highest homology with porcine and equine preprorelaxin. Northern analysis revealed a 1-kilobase transcript present in total RNA of canine uteroplacental tissue but not of kidney tissue. Uteroplacental tissue from two bitches each at Days 30 and 35 of gestation were studied by in situ hybridization to localize relaxin mRNA. Immunohistochemistry for relaxin, cytokeratin, vimentin, and von Willebrand factor was performed on uteroplacental tissue at Day 30 of gestation. The basal cell layer at the core of the chorionic villi was devoid of relaxin mRNA and immunoreactive relaxin or vimentin but was immunopositive for cytokeratin and identified as cytotrophoblast cells. The cell layer surrounding the chorionic villi displayed specific hybridization signals for relaxin mRNA and immunoreactivity for relaxin and cytokeratin but not for vimentin, and was identified as syncytiotrophoblast. Those areas of the chorioallantoic tissue with most intense relaxin immunoreactivity were highly vascularized as demonstrated by immunoreactive von Willebrand factor expressed on vascular endothelium. The uterine glands and nonplacental uterine areas of the canine zonary girdle placenta were devoid of relaxin mRNA and relaxin. We conclude that the syncytiotrophoblast is the source of relaxin in the canine placenta.  (+info)

Expression of trophinin, tastin, and bystin by trophoblast and endometrial cells in human placenta. (2/382)

Trophinin, tastin, and bystin comprise a complex mediating a unique homophilic cell adhesion between trophoblast and endometrial epithelial cells at their respective apical cell surfaces. In this study, we prepared mouse monoclonal antibodies specific to each of these molecules. The expression of these molecules in the human placenta was examined immunohistochemically using the antibodies. In placenta from the 6th week of pregnancy, trophinin and bystin were found in the cytoplasm of the syncytiotrophoblast in the chorionic villi, and in endometrial decidual cells at the utero placental interface. Tastin was exclusively present on the apical side of the syncytiotrophoblast. Tissue sections were also examined by in situ hybridization using RNA probes specific to each of these molecules. This analysis showed that trophoblast and endometrial epithelial cells at the utero placental interface express trophinin, tastin, and bystin. In wk 10 placenta, trophinin and bystin were found in the intravillous cytotrophoblast, while tastin was not found in the villi. After wk 10, levels of all three proteins decreased and then disappeared from placental villi.  (+info)

CD9 is expressed in extravillous trophoblasts in association with integrin alpha3 and integrin alpha5. (3/382)

The CD9 molecule is a 24-27 kDa cell surface glycoprotein, which may be related to Schwann cell migration and adhesion. In this study, we examined the expression of CD9 in human extravillous trophoblasts, which invade into the endometrium during implantation and placentation. CD9 was detected immunohistochemically on the extravillous trophoblasts in the cell columns of first trimester placentae, but not on villous trophoblasts. In the second and third trimester, CD9 was highly expressed on the extravillous trophoblasts in the basal plate of placentae, and in the chorion laeve in the fetal membrane of term placentae. The molecular mass of CD9 in the chorion laeve was shown to be 27 kDa by Western blotting. The mRNA of CD9 was also detected in the chorion laeve by reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR). Proteins were purified from chorion laeve by affinity chromatography with anti-integrin alpha3 and alpha5 monoclonal antibodies and Western blotting, revealed that CD9 was associated with both integrins. These findings indicate that CD9 is a differentiation-related molecule present in the extravillous trophoblasts. Since it is associated with integrin alpha5 which has been proposed to regulate trophoblast invasion, CD9 may be implicated in trophoblast invasion at the feto-maternal interface.  (+info)

Characterization of human placental explants: morphological, biochemical and physiological studies using first and third trimester placenta. (4/382)

The primary objective of this study was to characterize an in-vitro model of the human placenta using morphological, biochemical and physiological parameters. Placental villi were obtained from normal first trimester and term pregnancies. The villi were incubated with Dulbecco's modified Eagle's medium: Ham's F12 nutrient mixture in a shaking water bath at 37 degrees C for up to 310 min. The viability was determined by the production of beta human chorionic gonadotrophin (HCG) and lactic dehydrogenase (LDH) and the incorporation of [3H]thymidine, [3H]L-leucine and L-[U14C]arginine, while ultrastructure was assessed by transmission electron microscopy. In the first and third trimester group, the release into the medium of the intracellular enzyme LDH remained unaltered throughout the experiment. By contrast, beta-HCG concentrations increased linearly and concentrations were higher in the first trimester than term villi (354.5 +/- 37.8 versus 107 +/- 8.1 IU/g villi protein; P < 0.001). Electron microscopy confirmed preservation of tissue viability for up to 4 h of incubation. The incorporation of thymidine (12.2 +/- 2.9 versus 5.2 +/- 0.5 nmol/g villi protein; P < 0.05), leucine (9.4 +/- 2.1 versus 1.9 +/- 0.4 nmol/g villi protein; P < 0.02) and arginine (17 +/- 4.4 versus 4.2 +/- 0.5 nmol/g villi protein; P < 0.05) were markedly higher in early than in term placenta. Furthermore, placental uptake of L-leucine by the first (9.4 +/- 2.1 versus 17 + 4.4 mol/g villi protein; P < 0.001) and third trimester placental villi (1.9 +/- 0.4 versus 4.2 + 0.5 mol/g villi protein; P < 0.001) was less than that of L-arginine. This study describes a simple technique using placental explants to determine relative rates of uptake of substrate amino acids throughout gestation.  (+info)

Immunity to placental malaria. I. Elevated production of interferon-gamma by placental blood mononuclear cells is associated with protection in an area with high transmission of malaria. (5/382)

In areas in which malaria is holoendemic, primigravidae and secundigravidae, compared with multigravidae, are highly susceptible to placental malaria (PM). The nature of gravidity-dependent immune protection against PM was investigated by measuring in vitro production of cytokines by placental intervillous blood mononuclear cells (IVBMC). The results demonstrated that interferon (IFN)-gamma may be a critical factor in protection against PM: production of this cytokine by PM-negative multigravid IVBMC was elevated compared with PM-negative primigravid and secundigravid and PM-positive multigravid cells. Low IFN-gamma responsiveness to malarial antigen stimulation, most evident in the latter group, was balanced by increased interleukin (IL)-4 production, suggesting that counter-regulation of these two cytokines may be a crucial determinant in susceptibility to PM. A counter-regulatory relationship between IL-10 and tumor necrosis factor-alpha was also observed in response to malarial antigen stimulation. These data suggest that elevated production of IFN-gamma, as part of a carefully regulated cytokine network, is important in the control of PM.  (+info)

Characterization and expression of the laminin gamma3 chain: a novel, non-basement membrane-associated, laminin chain. (6/382)

Laminins are heterotrimeric molecules composed of an alpha, a beta, and a gamma chain; they have broad functional roles in development and in stabilizing epithelial structures. Here, we identified a novel laminin, composed of known alpha and beta chains but containing a novel gamma chain, gamma3. We have cloned gene encoding this chain, LAMC3, which maps to chromosome 9 at q31-34. Protein and cDNA analyses demonstrate that gamma3 contains all the expected domains of a gamma chain, including two consensus glycosylation sites and a putative nidogen-binding site. This suggests that gamma3-containing laminins are likely to exist in a stable matrix. Studies of the tissue distribution of gamma3 chain show that it is broadly expressed in: skin, heart, lung, and the reproductive tracts. In skin, gamma3 protein is seen within the basement membrane of the dermal-epidermal junction at points of nerve penetration. The gamma3 chain is also a prominent element of the apical surface of ciliated epithelial cells of: lung, oviduct, epididymis, ductus deferens, and seminiferous tubules. The distribution of gamma3-containing laminins on the apical surfaces of a variety of epithelial tissues is novel and suggests that they are not found within ultrastructurally defined basement membranes. It seems likely that these apical laminins are important in the morphogenesis and structural stability of the ciliated processes of these cells.  (+info)

Rapid detection of chromosome aneuploidies by quantitative fluorescence PCR: first application on 247 chorionic villus samples. (7/382)

We report the results of the first major study of applying quantitative fluorescence polymerase chain reaction (QF-PCR) assays for the detection of major chromosome numerical disorders. The QF-PCR tests were performed on a total of 247 chorionic villus samples, which were analysed blind, without any knowledge of the results obtained using conventional cytogenetic analysis. The aims of this investigation were to evaluate the detection power and accuracy of this approach by testing a large number of fetal samples and to assess the diagnostic value of each of the chromosome specific small tandem repeat (STR) markers used. In addition, we introduced three more markers specific for chromosomes 13, 18, and X to allow an accurate analysis of samples homozygous for a particular STR. Fluorescent labelled primers were used to amplify 12 STRs specific for chromosomes 21, 18, 13, X, and the amylogenin-like DNA sequence AMXY, expressed on the X and Y chromosomes. In this blind study of 247 fetal samples, 222 were correctly diagnosed by QF-PCR as normal for each of the five chromosomes investigated; 20 were diagnosed by QF-PCR as trisomic for chromosomes 21, 18, or 13, in agreement with the cytogenetic tests. Only one false negative result was observed, probably owing to the mishandling of the sample, which had been transferred through three laboratories before being analysed by QF-PCR. The 247 samples also included four cases of mosaicism or translocation; one case of mosaic trisomy 21 was detected by QF-PCR and the other cases were not identified by QF-PCR. The results of this investigation provide clear evidence that the QF-PCR assays are powerful adjuncts to conventional cytogenetic techniques and can be applied for the rapid and accurate prenatal diagnosis of the most frequent aneuploidies.  (+info)

Trisomy/tetrasomy 21 mosaicism in CVS: interpretation of cytogenetic discrepancies between placental and fetal chromosome complements. (8/382)

Trisomy/tetrasomy 21 mosaicism was found in chorionic villi (semidirect preparation) obtained from a 40 year old pregnant woman. Since both cell lines were abnormal, the couple elected for pregnancy termination. Placenta and fetal tissue samples were obtained for cytogenetic study. Long term cultured villi showed a non-mosaic trisomy 21 karyotype, while other tissues showed either a normal karyotype or normal/trisomy21 mosaicism. These discrepancies could be explained by a modified "bottle neck" embryogenic model with a trisomic zygote and a non-disjunction event taking place in one of the first divisions. Our case emphasises the need for confirmatory studies in other tissues when mosaicism is encountered in chorionic villi, even if all cell lines are abnormal.  (+info)

DISCUSSION In this paper is shown that obesity associate with hypertension produce severe degenerative changes in stem villi and other placental villi. Although no thrombosis was observed in stem villi, it could to be possible that obstructive lumina of the vessels in the chorionic plate leads to villous stromal changes in the placental villi or in the syncytio by reduction of blood flow.Hypertension appears to induce vascular endothelial damage. Maternal hypertension predispose to decresead uteroplacental blood flow which could to stimulate few attracting of blood by intermediate placental villi provoking isquemic placental villi with degenerative changes.The underperfusion of the intervillous space has resulted in local areas with increased perivillous fibrin and villous agglutination. Growing evidence in human and animal models of maternal obesity indicate several placental changes: increased idiopathic villitis, macrophage infiltration and placental vascularity9.

Using immunofluoresce microscopy and histology, intervillous surface lining components area fractions were measured in healthy term chorionic plate (CP) (n=7), healthy term placental basal plate (n=11), mild pre-eclamptic (MPE) placental basal plate (n=10) and severe pre-eclamptic (SPE) placental basal plate (n=11). The aims are (1) to examine the effect of pre-eclampsia (PE) and its severity on the basal plate (BP) intervillous surface lining composition and (2) to define the composition of the CP intervillous surface lining. The results show the mean birth weight of the babies in the SPE are significantly lower than in the HC and MPE (F (2, 29) = 11.912, p =0.000) and the mean gestational age at delivery (GAD) in the SPE group is significantly lower than the HC and MPE (GAD) [Anova p = 0.001; posthoc, p =0.003 and p = 0.001 for MPE and healthy control (HC) respectively].

Chorionic villi miscarriage occurs when the villi are immature. There is a very little risk of miscarriage along with pregnancy every time. CVS sampling during pregnancy can be the cause of miscarriage. CVS test is normal in pregnancy but there are also little chances of miscarriage. The ratio of miscarriage to CVS is 3:200. The chances of miscarriage are also seen after amniocentesis. But the chances of miscarriage in CVS are high as compare to amniocentesis, the reason behind this is CVS sampling is done at the initial stage of pregnancy. Any kind of suspected problem may also lead to miscarriage ...
The very large presented sample set and consistency in cytogenetic methodology, especially the analysis of both placental layers performed on all CV samples will enable genetic counselors to determine the risk of fetal involvement and the clinical relevance of an identified mosaic condition.
Rapid growth and higher metaphase yields with BIs BIO-AMF media for your primary amniotic fluid and chorionic villus cell culturing needs
During human pregnancy, the specialized epithelial cells of the placenta (cytotrophoblasts) come into direct contact with immune cells in several locations. In the fetal compartment of the placenta, cytotrophoblast stem cells lie adjacent to macrophages (Hofbauer cells) that reside within the chorionic villus stroma. At sites of placental attachment to the mother, invasive cytotrophoblasts encounter specialized maternal natural killer (NK) cells (CD56bright), macrophages, and T cells that accumulate within the uterine wall during pregnancy. Here we tested the hypothesis that fetal cytotrophoblasts can direct the migration of these maternal immune cells. First, we assayed the chemotactic activity of cytotrophoblast conditioned medium samples, using human peripheral blood mononuclear cells as targets. The placental samples preferentially attracted NK cells (both CD56dim and CD56bright), monocytes, and T cells, suggesting that our hypothesis was correct. A screen to identify chemokine activity ...
Hello ladies, On my February 2011 birth club (obviously my pregnancy ended in miscarriage), a post about placental location and fetal gender was a hot topic.

Our results show that expression and activities of FAO enzymes as well as overall FAO of palmitate and myristate are substantial in human placental villi during gestation and identify trophoblast components as the primary FAO sites in the term placenta. Expression of FAO enzymes and measured activities at lower gestational ages of 12-28 wk are comparable to that in mature slow skeletal muscle, a tissue that uses fatty acids as a substrate to satisfy high energy requirements. The data provide direct evidence that fatty acids undergo extensive mitochondrial β-oxidation in the placenta. Our major conclusion is that fatty acids are utilized as a significant metabolic fuel and energy source in this organ, consistent with our hypothesis. This overall conclusion is novel and at variance with the current concept that glucose is the sole energy source in the placenta (14,16). On the basis of this conclusion, we speculate that human placental mitochondrial FAO is critical for normal growth and maturation ...

Chorionic Villus Sampling: The diagnostic procedure of taking out a sample tissue (Choroinic Villi) from the placenta to detect congenital abnormalities in a fetus is known as Chorionic Villus Sampling (CVS).
Chorionic villus sampling (CVS) is a prenatal test that involves taking a sample of tissue from the placenta, a structure in the uterus that provides blood and nutrients from the mother to the fetus, to test for chromosomal abnormalities and certain other genetic problems.. The chorionic villi are tiny projections of placental tissue that look like fingers and contain the same genetic material as the fetus. Testing may be available for other genetic defects and disorders depending on the family history and availability of lab testing at the time of the procedure.. CVS is usually performed between the 10th and 12th weeks of pregnancy. Unlike amniocentesis (another type of prenatal test), CVS does not provide information on neural tube defects, such as spina bifida.

Chorionic villus sampling (CVS) is a prenatal test that involves taking a sample of tissue from the placenta, a structure in the uterus that provides blood and nutrients from the mother to the fetus, to test for chromosomal abnormalities and certain other genetic problems.. The chorionic villi are tiny projections of placental tissue that look like fingers and contain the same genetic material as the fetus. Testing may be available for other genetic defects and disorders depending on the family history and availability of lab testing at the time of the procedure.. CVS is usually performed between the 10th and 12th weeks of pregnancy. Unlike amniocentesis (another type of prenatal test), CVS does not provide information on neural tube defects, such as spina bifida.

A monoclonal antibody GB25 which was raised against placental syncytiotrophoblast reacted specifically with villous trophoblasts. It recognized syncytiotrophoblast, villous cytotrophoblasts of the first-trimester placentae, and a majority of the cytotrophoblasts in the chorion laeve, but not the residual cells of cytotrophoblastic shell in the basal plates and the cells in the cytotrophoblastic columns. This antibody will be useful for isolating and differentiating villous from extravillous cytotrophoblasts in the first-trimester placentae.
You will take off your clothes below the waist. You will have a paper or cloth covering around your waist. You will lie on your back on an exam table with your feet raised and supported by stirrups.. Your doctor will put a special tool with curved sides (speculum) into your vagina. The speculum gently spreads apart the vaginal walls. This lets the doctor see the inside of the vagina and the cervix. The cervix will be cleaned with a special soap.. Your doctor will use ultrasound to guide a thin tube (catheter) through your cervix to the placenta. Gel will be rubbed on your belly. An ultrasound device (transducer) will be moved over your belly. It gives off and picks up sound waves. The sound waves are sent to a computer to make a picture of your uterus, your baby, and the placenta. The doctor can also use ultrasound to check your babys heart rate. For more information, see the topic Fetal Ultrasound.. When the catheter is in the right place, a sample of chorionic villus cells will be ...

As a first step to explore the possible relationships existing between the effects of low oxygen pressure in the first trimester placenta and placental pathologies developing from mid-gestation, two subtracted libraries totaling 2304 cDNA clones were constructed. For achieving this, two reciprocal suppressive/subtractive hybridization procedures (SSH) were applied to early (11 weeks) human placental villi after incubation either in normoxic or in hypoxic conditions. The clones from both libraries (1440 hypoxia-specific and 864 normoxia-specific) were spotted on nylon macroarrays. Complex cDNAs probes prepared from placental villi (either from early pregnancy, after hypoxic or normoxic culture conditions, or near term for controls or pathological placentas) were hybridized to the membranes. Three hundred and fifty nine clones presenting a hybridization signal above the background were sequenced and shown to correspond to 276 different genes. Nine of these genes are mitochondrial, while 267 are nuclear.
The cytotrophoblast (or layer of Langhans) is the inner layer of the trophoblast. It is interior to the syncytiotrophoblast and external to the wall of the blastocyst in a developing embryo. The cytotrophoblast is considered to be the trophoblastic stem cell because the layer surrounding the blastocyst remains while daughter cells differentiate and proliferate to function in multiple roles. There are two lineages that cytotrophoblastic cells may differentiate through: fusion and invasive. The fusion lineage yields syncytiotrophoblast and the invasive lineage yields interstitial cytotrophoblast cells. Cytotrophoblastic cells play an important role in the implantation of a newly fertilized egg in the uterus. The formation of all syncytiotrophoblast is from the fusion of two or more cytotrophoblasts via this fusion pathway. This pathway is important because the syncytiotrophoblast plays an important role in fetal-maternal gas exchange, nutrient exchange, and immunological and metabolic functions. ...
Hemochorial placentation, with placental villi bathing in maternal blood, entails direct contact of circulating maternal leukocytes with the fetal trophoblast, ,nobr,i. e.,/nobr, the syncytiotrophoblast, which covers all placental villous trees as well as parts of the inner surfaces of chorionic and basal plates (1). This way, placenta-derived factors, such as hormones and cytokines predominantly released by the syncytio-trophoblast, may influence circulating maternal blood cells and vice versa factors from maternal leukocytes may regulate villous trophoblast functions. Thus, a combination of modulating signals and responses between maternal circulating blood cells and the placental trophoblast may dynamically be adjusted over gestation for an overall cooperative microenvironment in the intervillous space. Alterations in this cooperative microenvironment may occur very early in pregnancy and is suggested to program early placenta functions and growth long before any phenotypic changes become ...
We aimed to investigate the expression of suppressors cytokine signaling (SOCS)-3, transforming growth factor (TGF)-β and indoleamine 2,3-dioxygense (IDO) and to analyse the relationship of SOCS3 and TGF-β with IDO expression in early pregnancy chorionic villi and decidua in the maternal-fetal interface. Western blot analysis and immunohistochemical method were used to detect the expression of TGF-β, SOCS3 and IDO in chorionic villi and decidua tissues of normal pregnant women. SOCS3, TGF-β and IDO protein was identified in chorionic villi and decidua tissues of normal pregnant women and there was a negative correlation between the expression of IDO and SOCS3, but TGF-β expression was positively correlated with IDO expression ...

In this monograph we refer to all varieties of invasive placentation as abnormally adherent placenta. There are 3 commonly defined variants: placenta accreta (where chorionic villi attach to the myometrium, rather than being restricted within the decidua basalis), placenta increta (where the chorionic villi invade into the myometrium), and placenta percreta (where the chorionic villi invade through the myometrium and sometimes into adjoining tissue).

Am J Obstet Gynecol. 2010;203:430-439. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21055510?tool=bestpractice.com Although these distinctions are important to consultants, they do not change management decisions for primary care providers. ...
The distribution of mRNAs and antigens of tissue type (t) and urokinase type (u) plasminogen activators (PA) plus their corresponding inhibitors, type-1 (PAI-1) and type-2 (PAI-2) were studied in human and rhesus monkey placentae by in situ hybridisation and immunocytochemistry. Specific monkey cRNA and antibodies against human tPA, uPA, PAI-1 and PAI-2 were used as probes. The following results were obtained. (1) All the molecules tPA, uPA, PAI-1 and PAI-2 and their mRNAs were identified in the majority of the extravillous cytotrophoblast cells of the decidual layer between Rohrs and Nitabuchs striae and in cytotrophoblast cells of the chorionic plate, basal plate, intercotyledonary septae and cytotrophoblast cells of the chorionic villous tree. (2) Expression of uPA and PAI-2 was noted in villous trophoblast whereas tPA and PAI-1 were mainly concentrated where detachment from maternal tissue occurs. (3) No expression of tPA, uPA, PAI-1 and PAI-2 was observed in the basal plate endometrial ...
Term cytotrophoblast do not express polymorphic MHC Class I antigens, unlike other fetal and maternal cells in the amniochorion/decidua. This allows cytotrophoblast to be isolated and purified from this tissue, utilizing 4E, a monoclonal antibody specific for HLA-B, which labels only non-trophoblast. We have developed a method using enzymic dispersion and Percoll gradient centrifugation, followed by flow cytometry, that yields, on average, a total of 5 X 10(6) term extravillous cytotrophoblast, 97 per cent pure. The availability of highly purified extravillous cytotrophoblast, for the first time, permits precise investigation of trophoblast function.

This study was done on 60 pregnant women that have case intra uterine fetal death in kerbala city. We determined the placental abnormalities that lead to intra uterine fetal death through histopathological sections. The resulting shown six groups of cases with defective placental maturation .The first group of cases shown absence of syncytio-vascular membrane formation and the second group shown immaturity and hydropic degeneration of chorionic villi. The third group shownchronic villitis and the fourth shown fibrin depositions and loss of vessels in the villous stroma of placenta .The fifth group shown foetal thrombotic lesions which consist of large groups of vascular fibrotic villi as the result of vessel thrombosis .The last group shown umbilical cord abnormal coiling (over coiling) or under coiling . These groups of cases represent the most important causes of late intra utrine fetal death.

Capillaries in intestinal villi. Light micrograph of a transverse section through villi in the small intestine, showing the blood supply. At bottom are the outer muscle layers in the wall of the small intestine. Villi are finger-like projections on the inner wall, which face the lumen (at top). The villi are adapted for the absorption of digested food. The core of each villus contains blood capillaries (dark), which here have been injected to highlight their structure. Epithelial cells on the surface of each villus absorb food, which is then passed into the bloodstream through this capillary system. The 6 metre long human small intestine contains thousands of villi. - Stock Image P520/0080
These tree-like masses originating from the umbilical cord (and thus fetus) sit in a cavity called the intervillous space, and are bathed in nutrient-rich maternal blood. This maternal blood, which provides the fetus with a means for both nutrient delivery and waste elimination, is continually replenished via a network of maternal arteries and veins that feed into the intervillous space. Furthermore, these arteries and veins help to anchor the placenta into the uterine wall. One of the most interesting aspects about the mother-feus relationship is that the blood vessel connection is indirect. This helps to prevent a detrimental immune response, which could lead to immunological rejection of the fetus (sort of like how a transplanted organ can become rejected by the recipient ...
Hi I feel like I am losing my mind, still waiting for our full CVS (Chorionic Villus Sampling) results and it has been 2 weeks. Just rang the clinic who now said it can be 2 - 3 weeks! Really dont think I can take another week of all this waiting, what can be taking so long, just want to know that all is ok so we can book the heart scan. This is the worst 2 weeks ever. Is anyone else waiting for results? Sam

There, the villi and the microvilli increase intestinal absorptive surface area approximately 30-fold and 600-fold, respectively, providing exceptionally efficient absorption of nutrients in the lumen.[2]. There are also enzymes (enterocyte digestive enzyme) on the surface for digestion. Villus capillaries collect amino acids and simple sugars taken up by the villi into the blood stream. Villus lacteals (lymph capillary) collect absorbed chylomicrons, which are lipoproteins composed of triglycerides, cholesterol and amphipathic proteins, and are taken to the rest of the body through the lymph fluid. Villi are specialized for absorption in the small intestine as they have a thin wall, one cell thick, which enables a shorter diffusion path. They have a large surface area so there will be more efficient absorption of fatty acids and glycerol into the blood stream. They have a rich blood supply to keep a concentration gradient.[3]. ...
Pregnancy induced hypertension (PIH) is a significant problem in maternal medicine. According to recent publications, insufficient invasion of extravillous trophoblasts into the myometrial parts of the spiral arteries may be responsible for this. The vessel inadequately adapts to the increased perfusion uterus need during pregnancy and consequently, multiple vasodilatory mediators are released. This results in the clinical picture of endothelial dysfunction with hypertension, proteinuria and oedema. The reason of this inadequate invasion of trophoblasts is unknown. In order to identify the causative factors, we hypothesise that the trophoblasts invasion at the beginning of pregnancy is comparable with the growth of malignant tumours.The invasion of extravillous trophoblasts shows a breach of basal membranes and invasive growth. Therefore, growth factors and their receptors, in particular those of the EGF family could play a central role. They have already been researched extensively in relation ...

Some screening tests are done in the first trimester of pregnancy, and some are done in the second trimester. Your doctor may have you tested in both trimesters, depending on your babys risk and the testing method you select.. There are several ways to do the screening. One type of screening (no needles) is an ultrasound. This measures the thickness of the liquid under the skin on your babys neck. If the thickness is not normal, your baby may not have the normal number of chromosomes. Your doctor may also do a blood test to check your babys risk of having a genetic disorder.. There are two tests that can say for sure if your baby has a genetic disorder. They both have a small risk of causing a miscarriage. One test is called amniocentesis (AM-nee-oh-sen-TEE-sis). This is when the doctor uses a needle to take a small sample of fluid from the bag of water around the baby. The other test is called chorionic villus (core-ee-AH-nick VIL-us) sampling. This is when the doctor uses a needle to take a ...

Hi Friederike! We tried a contact with bioinformatics support of Ion, and they told us that we could do it and recommended to separate our reads with samtools. We tried it again, without any success and different suggestion from support. I proceeded to a depth calculation in samtools itself and i cant see the CALCA here. You know, my coverage was not 100%, some reads was lost as machine output shows (60-70% of useful reads) maybe this is just the case. There is no way to recover because (for some reason) the primer, machine or pipeline of the version that we made use failed.. flagstat statistics 5467132 + 0 in total (QC-passed reads + QC-failed reads) 5457323 + 0 mapped (99.82% : N/A).

Theoretically, pelvimetry may identify cephalo-pelvic disproportion, which is when the capacity of the pelvis is inadequate to allow the fetus to negotiate the birth canal. However, a woman's pelvis loosens up before birth (with the help of hormones). A Cochrane review in 2017 found that there was too little evidence to show whether pelvimetry is beneficial and safe when the baby is in cephalic presentation.[3] A review in 2003 came to the conclusion that pelvimetry does not change the management of pregnant women, and recommended that all women should be allowed a trial of labor regardless of pelvimetry results.[2] It considered routine performance of pelvimetry to be a waste of time, a potential liability, and an unnecessary discomfort.[2] ...

A postpartum (or postnatal) period begins immediately after the birth of a child as the mother's body, including hormone levels and uterus size, returns to a non-pregnant state.[1] The terms puerperium or puerperal period, or immediate postpartum period are commonly used to refer to the first six weeks following childbirth.[2] The World Health Organization (WHO) describes the postnatal period as the most critical and yet the most neglected phase in the lives of mothers and babies; most maternal and newborn deaths occur during the postnatal period.[3] In scientific literature, the term is commonly abbreviated to Px, where x is a number; for example, "day P5" should be read as "the fifth day after birth". This is not to be confused with the medical nomenclature that uses G P to stand for number and outcomes of pregnancy (gravidity and parity). A woman giving birth in a hospital may leave as soon as she is medically stable, which can be as early as a few hours postpartum, though the average for a ...
... , also known as antenatal care, is a type of preventive healthcare. Its goal is to provide regular check-ups that allow doctors or midwives to treat and prevent potential health problems throughout the course of the pregnancy and to promote healthy lifestyles that benefit both mother and child.[1][2] During check-ups, pregnant women receive medical information over maternal physiological changes in pregnancy, biological changes, and prenatal nutrition including prenatal vitamins. Recommendations on management and healthy lifestyle changes are also made during regular check-ups. The availability of routine prenatal care, including prenatal screening and diagnosis, has played a part in reducing the frequency of maternal death, miscarriages, birth defects, low birth weight, neonatal infections and other preventable health problems. The World Health Organization (WHO) reported that in 2015 around 830 women died every day from problems in pregnancy and childbirth.[3] Only 5 lived in ...
