Abstract

A randomized study on the effect of terbutaline on fetal distress was carried out in 20 patients who showed evidence of ominous fetal heart rate patterns and fetal scalp blood pH values of less than 7.25. Of those, 11 received terbutaline (study group) and nine did not (control group). There was a significant improvement in the acid-base status of the fetus in the study group compared with those in the control group (p less than 0.01). No significant maternal or fetal morbidity occurred in the study group. Apgar scores at 1 minute were 7 or greater in 10 of the 11 study subjects whereas only four of the nine control subjects had a score of 7 or greater. These results suggest that terbutaline may become a useful agent in the treatment of intrauterine fetal distress.

COVID-19

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Genetic Screens in iPSC-derived Brain Cells

Genetic screening is a critical tool that can be employed to define and understand gene function and interaction. This feed focuses on genetic screens conducted using induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-derived brain cells. It also follows CRISPR-Cas9 approaches to generating genetic mutants as a means of understanding the effect of genetics on phenotype.
