Sealant shown to be biocompatible and effective in repairing defects in human tissue.
Yiping Han, a researcher from Department of Periodontics at Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine, reports the first documented link between a mother with pregnancy-associated gum disease to the death of her fetus.
For the first time, scientists have demonstrated that stem cells found in amniotic fluid meet an important test of potential to become specialized cell types, which suggests they may be useful for treating a wider array of diseases and conditions than scientists originally thought.

Israeli doctors warn summer heat may increase the risk of amniotic fluid level deficiency in pregnant women. The study, published in the Archives of Gynecology and Obstetrics, finds lower levels of fluid in the womb of pregnant women more likely in the summer months. It is important for pregnant women
Pregnant women have a higher incidence of insufficient amniotic fluid levels (oligohydramnios) in the summer months due to dehydration, according to a study conducted by researchers at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev
Abnormal gene expression in amniotic fluid could play role in suggesting potential therapies BOSTON, June 2 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A paper published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (http://www.pnas.org/content/early/2009/05/27/0903909106) by Tufts Medical Center and Tufts University researchers reports that amniotic fluid surrounding Down syndrome fetuses shows oxidative stress, a condition that could harm fetal cells and play a role in affected individuals.
For the first time, scientists have shown that amniotic fluid (the protective liquid surrounding an embryo) may be a potential new source of stem cells for therapeutic applications.

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...
