Prenatal origin of parent-child relations. I. Attempt at a schema of development

All over the world in recent years the increasing awareness of the importance of the relationship between parent and child for the perinatal period has led to changes in the practices of maternity units. Unfortunately, concentrating on the perinatal period has turned attention away from the interaction of the parent with the child over a much longer period before and after birth. We suggest that, under favourable conditions, there is a psychobiological development of the relationship that exists in the perinatal period which has developed in parallel with the physical development of the fetus. This article suggests how the normal process of the antenatal development occurs in this reference and points out certain psycho-social difficulties that can interfere with its progress. Our thesis is that it is essential to understand this process as part of the complete care given in obstetrics.

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.

Synthetic Genetic Array Analysis

Synthetic genetic arrays allow the systematic examination of genetic interactions. Here is the latest research focusing on synthetic genetic arrays and their analyses.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

Head And Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Squamous cell carcinomas account for >90% of all tumors in the head and neck region. Head and neck squamous cell carcinoma incidence has increased dramatically recently with little improvement in patient outcomes. Here is the latest research on this aggressive malignancy.
