  1. 1. Biomarkers in mid-trimester amniotic fluid in relation to gestational duration and spontaneous preterm delivery

    Författare :Maria Hallingström; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; amniotic fluid; biomarkers; cytokine; damage-associated molecular pattern; gestation; gestational duration; inflammation; labor; mid-trimester; multiplex; pregnancy clock; proteins; spontaneous preterm delivery; term delivery;

    Sammanfattning : Background: The biological mechanisms and physiological pathways of pregnancy maintenance and timing of delivery are complex and multifactorial. Pregnancy clocks, partly controlled by timing mechanisms linked to fetal development, which regulate the onset of labor has previously been described. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Genetic factors affecting pregnancy duration in humans

    Författare :Jonas Bacelis; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; genomics; GWAS; Mendelian randomization; causal inference; preterm birth; pregnancy; gestation; height; text mining;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis investigates the mechanisms behind human pregnancy duration. Too short gestation is a direct cause of perinatal, neonatal, and infant mortality. Deviation from normal pregnancy length is also associated with a child's morbidity, even in the adulthood. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Physical Fitness and Pregnancy

    Författare :Eva Thorell; Per Kristiansson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Physical fitness; oxygen uptake; pregnancy; back pain; blood pressure; duration of gestation; relaxin; cycle ergometer test; physical exercise; perceived health;

    Sammanfattning : Objectives To assess physical fitness in pregnancy and to evaluate its effect on perceived health, back pain, blood pressure and duration of gestation. Also, to evaluate the effect of serum relaxin levels on blood pressure and duration of gestation. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Infant Anemia and Micronutrient Status : Studies of Early Determinants in Rural Bangladesh

    Författare :Hanna Eneroth; Eva-Charlotte Ekström; Lars-Åke Persson; Usha Ramakrishnan; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Micronutrients; Anemia; Iron Deficiency; Zinc Deficiency; Vitamin A Deficiency; Vitamin B12 Deficiency; Folic Acid Deficiency; Infant; Pregnancy; Dietary Supplementation; Hemoglobin; Dose-Response Relationship; Exclusive Breast Feeding; Bangladesh; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; International Health; Internationell hälsa;

    Sammanfattning : Anemia and micronutrient deficiencies in infancy are common in low-income settings. These are partly due to maternal malnutrition and may impair child health and development. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Estimation of gestational age by ultrasound and extreme prematurity

    Författare :Marija Simic; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []

    Sammanfattning : Accurate estimation of the gestational age (GA) of the fetus is a key assessment made by providers of obstetric care during pregnancy, since decisions concerning management strategies are dependent on this estimate. Thus, the prognosis for preterm infants born at the border of viability is strongly dependent on the accuracy with which GA can be determined. LÄS MER
