• infection
  • The parasitic infection can lead to obstruction of peripheral lymphatic vessels and increased pressure within the vessels causing collateral flow of the lymph, redirecting the lymph flow from the intestinal lymphatic vessels into the lymphatic vessels of the kidney and ureter. (wikipedia.org)
  • fetus
  • A captive 17-year old female Malayan tapir (Tapirus indicus) aborted a fetus with a crown rump length of 19cm in early pregnancy. (tapirs.org)
  • The parasitic twin, little more than a torso with or without legs, receives its blood supply from the host twin by means of an umbilical cord-like structure (which often only has 2 blood vessels, instead of 3), much like a fetus in fetu, except the acardiac twin is outside the host twin's body. (wikipedia.org)
  • While the average adult citizen of an endemic region possesses some immunity to the parasite, pregnancy causes complications that leave the woman and fetus extremely vulnerable. (wikipedia.org)
  • women
  • Moreover, studies have shown that women acquire immunity to PAM through antibody recognition of the VAR2CSA domain, also known as VSAPAM, after exposure during their first pregnancy. (wikipedia.org)
  • iron
  • Taking supplements of iron and folic acid during your pregnancy may help since most cases of anemia occur due to a deficiency. (healthline.com)
  • Most cases of iron deficiency anemia are mild, but if not treated can cause problems like fast or irregular heartbeat, complications during pregnancy, and delayed growth in infants and children. (wikipedia.org)
  • problems
  • Although many problems are mild and don't progress, you should always contact your doctor if you have any concerns during your pregnancy. (healthline.com)
  • levels
  • By measuring circulating levels of IgG antibodies that presumably target VAR2SCA, the study demonstrated that subsequent pregnancies confer progressively greater protection to PAM. (wikipedia.org)
