Delivery outcome after infertility--a registry study

Fertility and Sterility
H A GhaziB Källén


Among a total of 379,779 women with 383,589 infants born in Sweden (1983 to 1986), 7.8% had a recorded period of infertility of at least 1 year. Women with a history of infertility had a higher mean age, a lower parity, had fewer previous induced abortions but more spontaneous abortions, extrauterine pregnancies, and stillbirths than women without a history of infertility. They also smoked more. There was an excess of multiple births. Singleton infants showed an increased percentage of low-birth weight infants, short gestational duration, and signs of intrauterine growth retardation. The rate of major malformations was not increased in the total infertile group but may have been increased in the subgroup with at least 4 years of infertility.

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.

Sexual Dimorphism in Neurodegeneration

There exist sex differences in neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative disorders. For instance, multiple sclerosis is more common in women, whereas Parkinson’s disease is more common in men. Here is the latest research on sexual dimorphism in neurodegeneration

HLA Genetic Variation

HLA genetic variation has been found to confer risk for a wide variety of diseases. Identifying these associations and understanding their molecular mechanisms is ongoing and holds promise for the development of therapeutics. Find the latest research on HLA genetic variation here.

Super-resolution Microscopy

Super-resolution microscopy is the term commonly given to fluorescence microscopy techniques with resolutions that are not limited by the diffraction of light. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to super-resolution microscopy.
