Latest Amniotic fluid Stories
PALM HARBOR, Fla., Oct. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Dry eyes affect 30% of Americans over the age of 50, but there are limited options to treat this common condition.
Researchers studying stem cells removed from amniotic fluid have found a possible role the cells have on healing damage caused by necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC), a severe inflammation that can destroy tissues in the gut and lead to major organ failure.
In a study to be presented on February 14 between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. PST, at the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine's annual meeting, The Pregnancy Meeting ™, in San Francisco, California, researchers will report findings suggesting an increased risk of early (less than 35 weeks) preterm birth when intra-amniotic debris is present in nulliparous women with a short cervix.
Stem cell research is gaining headway, but is still controversial. Scientists hope that a new discovery regarding stem cells from amniotic fluid will pave the way to an alternative option.
In recent years, medical professionals have begun to measure fatty acid ethyl esters (FAEEs) in meconium as a direct and reliable marker of gestational alcohol exposure during the second and third trimesters.
The rich source of stem cells in human amniotic fluid that can be isolated and transplanted for therapeutic purposes.
When are our adult food preferences formed? According to new research they are ingrained in us very early in the womb.
A new genetic analysis could be used to monitor fetal development; allowing clinicians to determine very early in pregnancy if fetal organ systems are developing normally.
Researchers have demonstrated the feasibility of focused fetal gene expression analysis of target genes found in amniotic fluid using Standardized NanoArray PCR (SNAP) technology.
Labor Induction is a process of giving an artificial start to birth with medical intervention or other methods.
Labor Induction is a process of giving an artificial start to birth with medical intervention or other methods. When an induction is not performed for emergency or other medical reasons, the method is considered an elective process. The decision to induce labor has increased in recent years due to its convenience or because it easily accommodates busy schedules. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, however, say that labor should only be induced when it is more risky...
