BACKGROUND: Various methods are currently used for the induction of labor. Nevertheless, the most effective method with the fewest side effects remains to be established. Misoprostol, administered vaginally, has been routinely used for this purpose; however, other forms of administration are being proposed, including the use of sublingual tablets. No studies have yet compared the effectiveness and safety of 12.5-μg misoprostol administered sublingually compared to a 25-μg vaginal dose of the drug for the induction of labor...

Childbirth is an important life event that has been understudied by psychologists. Parents may find birth to be stressful, painful, and frightening, or feel supported and calm. Birth experiences can be shaped both by preexisting psychological vulnerabilities and by medical events that occur during childbirth. The birth experience may influence both parent and child well-being, helping to shape the health of the new family. This paper introduces the Birth Experiences Questionnaire (BEQ), a brief 10-item measure designed to assess stress, fear, and partner support during birth...

The goal of induction of labor is to achieve vaginal delivery when the benefits of expeditious delivery outweigh the risks of continuing the pregnancy. In order to correctly understand the problematic of the elective induction of labor at 39 weeks of gestation (WG), two questions must be raised. (i) What is the perinatal mortality evolution according the gestational age at delivery? All the most recent and methodologically well-conducted studies are convergent: they show that the fetal mortality risk exceeds the perinatal/infant (during the first year of life) mortality risk from 39 WG...

Paeoniae Radix is one of the crude drugs frequently used in traditional Japanese medicine (Kampo medicine). It takes abundant labor and time to cultivate Paeonia lactiflora for medicinal use; high production cost is one of the main reasons why the domestic production of Paeoniae Radix is decreasing in Japan. To promote the production of Paeoniae Radix, we focused on Paeonia cultivars that produce commercially valuable flowers and investigated their possibility for medicinal use. We prepared 28 batches of peony roots derived from P...

BACKGROUND: Spontaneous vaginal birth rates are decreasing worldwide, while cesarean delivery, instrumental births, and medical birth interventions are increasing. Emerging evidence suggests that birth interventions may have an effect on children's health. Therefore, the aim of our study was to examine the association between operative and medical birth interventions on the child's health during the first 28 days and up to 5 years of age. METHODS: In New South Wales (Australia), population-linked data sets were analyzed, including data on maternal characteristics, child characteristics, mode of birth, interventions during labor and birth, and adverse health outcomes of the children (ie, jaundice, feeding problems, hypothermia, asthma, respiratory infections, gastrointestinal disorders, other infections, metabolic disorder, and eczema) registered with the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems, Tenth Revision, Australian Modification codes...

The expression of a recombinant gene in a host organism through induction can be an extensively manual and labor-intensive procedure. Several methods have been developed to simplify the protocol, but none has fully replaced the traditional IPTG-based induction. To simplify this process, we describe the development of an autoinduction platform based on digital microfluidics. This system consists of a 600 nm LED and a light sensor to enable the real-time monitoring of  the optical density (OD) samples coordinated with the semicontinuous mixing of a bacterial culture...

AIM: Elevated human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) and alpha fetoprotein (AFP) have been linked to placental dysfunction and associated morbidities. We aimed to compare the induction of labor with expectant management at term in those pregnancies for the prevention of neonatal and maternal morbidities. METHODS: Women with second trimester HCG ≥ 2 and/or AFP ≥ 2 multiples of the median, without additional maternal or fetal complications, from their 38th gestational week were offered the choice of labor induction or expectant management...
