In a study to be presented at the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine's (SMFM) annual meeting, The Pregnancy Meeting, researchers revealed findings that demonstrate that tranexamic acid prevents blood loss after vaginal births and postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) among women who have an operative vaginal delivery (use of a vacuum or forceps) or an episiotomy.

In a new study, researchers wondered if personality changes that begin early, when MCI memory loss becomes noticeable, might help predict Alzheimer's disease at its earliest stages. The research published in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society.
In both cell cultures and mouse models, a drug used to treat Hepatitis C effectively protected and rescued neural cells infected by the Zika virus — and blocked transmission of the virus to mouse fetuses. Researchers say their findings support further investigation of using the repurposed drug as a potential treatment for Zika-infected adults, including pregnant women.
A new study result indicates that Sulphated polysaccharides extracted from Caulerpa mexicana algae (Cm-SP) have a gastroprotective activity against ethanol-induced gastric damage, through mechanisms mediated by prostaglandins, independent of the NO pathway and oxidative stress reducer.
In a study published in the current issue of the journal Child Development, scientists at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center found that teens who were engaged in civic activities were more likely than non-engaged peers to attain higher income and education levels as adults.
Researchers aimed to develop a potent MMP probe , specifically targeting MMP-12 and MMP-9, based on ML5 for noninvasive COPD imaging with PET . As attachment of the 18 F-fluorobenzoyl moiety Decreased the affinity of ML5 Toward MMP-12, we selected another prosthetic agent for radiofluorination, 4-nitrophenyl 2- Namely 18 F-fluoropropionate ( 18 F-NFP ) .
In this study, researchers have established a new technology for creating more durable disease-fighting molecules which could lead to drugs with longer-lasting effects. For patients, this would mean less frequent injections and more drugs could one day be developed in a pill form. The study has been published in online edition of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
Now, new research at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis indicates that such circadian rhythm disruptions also occur much earlier in people whose memories are intact but whose brain scans show early, preclinical evidence of Alzheimer's . The research was published in the journal JAMA Neurology .
Children exposed to or infected with HIV in utero may have worse neurodevelopmental outcomes than those who were not exposed to the virus during gestation, researchers suggest. The findings are reported online in Pediatrics
Rates of diabetes and hypertension are high among middle-aged and elderly people across all geographic measures and sociodemographic groups in India, according to the first nationally representative study of those conditions in the country. The study, led by researchers at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, also found unexpectedly high rates of hypertension among young adults. The study appears online in JAMA Internal Medicine.
A Singapore-India collaborative research project between the Singapore University of Technology & Design (SUTD) and CSIR-National Chemical Laboratories (NCL) completed phenotypic screening of a large collection of potent chemical inhibitors (known as MMV Malaria Box), against pathogenic parasites Toxoplasma gondii and Plasmodium falciparum, causative agents of human toxoplasmosis and malaria.
Researchers from Case Western Reserve University , identified a specific brain region – the medial prefrontal cortex – as being particularly important for some of the respiratory and cognitive abnormalities seen in Rett syndrome. The study used a Rett mouse model to show activating neurons in this region can reverse breathing and memory abnormalities in symptomatic animals.
