Abstract

To report the clinical features, management, and outcome of twin pregnancies consisting of a complete hydatidiform mole and a coexisting normal fetus. Between 1966 and 1997, seven women with complete hydatidiform mole and coexisting normal fetus were treated at the John I. Brewer Trophoblastic Disease Center of Northwestern University Medical School. Clinical features, including presenting symptoms, gestational dates, hCG levels, and complications, as well as route of delivery or evacuation, pregnancy outcome, genetic analysis, and need for chemotherapy were assessed. Four women required uterine evacuation before 20 weeks' gestation because of vaginal bleeding or medical complications, one woman required an emergency hysterotomy because of hemorrhage at 24 weeks, and two women delivered normal, viable infants at 26 and 34 weeks. The pathologic diagnosis of complete hydatidiform mole was confirmed in each case and the chromosome complement was 46,XX in all molar gestations. Four of seven women required chemotherapy for treatment of nonmetastatic gestational trophoblastic tumors, including both women who delivered viable infants and two of the five women whose pregnancies were evacuated before 24 weeks' gestation. All four patien...Continue Reading

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.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Microbicide

Microbicides are products that can be applied to vaginal or rectal mucosal surfaces with the goal of preventing, or at least significantly reducing, the transmission of sexually transmitted infections. Here is the latest research on microbicides.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Regulation of Vocal-Motor Plasticity

Dopaminergic projections to the basal ganglia and nucleus accumbens shape the learning and plasticity of motivated behaviors across species including the regulation of vocal-motor plasticity and performance in songbirds. Discover the latest research on the regulation of vocal-motor plasticity here.

Myocardial Stunning

Myocardial stunning is a mechanical dysfunction that persists after reperfusion of previously ischemic tissue in the absence of irreversible damage including myocardial necrosis. Here is the latest research.
