The double burden of malnutrition, defined by the coexistence of undernutrition and overweight, is well documented in low- and middle-income countries. However, the mechanisms by which employment may be related to maternal and child weight status in low- and middle-income countries are not well understood. We conducted in-depth interviews among 20 mothers who participated in Project MIEL, a contemporary trial which evaluated the effects of an integrated micronutrient supplement and parenting intervention in rural Guatemala...

Informed consent is a communicative process of sharing information with patients, which helps assure their understanding of the information provided and asks for their permission to proceed. Informed consent allows a patient or a patient's family to use his or her own value system to determine the need for a particular procedure or test. Asking a patient for permission to treat requires the provider to respect the patient's autonomy through allowing him or her to be an active part of the decision-making process...

BACKGROUND: Low plasma proprotein convertase subtilisin kexin type-9 (PCSK9) concentration has been associated with loss of function (LOF) PCSK9 mutations in several studies. However, the current standard for detection of these LOF mutations is through gene sequencing. Gene sequencing is labor intensive and expensive. Identifying a simple test to help predict PCSK9 LOF mutations would help to better target subjects requiring gene sequencing. OBJECTIVES: Determine the diagnostic accuracy of plasma PCSK9 concentration in detecting PCSK9 LOF mutations using genotyping as the gold standard...

The aim of this review is to present the beliefs related to sexual activity during pregnancy. We identified 13 studies (3122 participants). The main positive beliefs about sex in pregnancy were that it makes labor easier, promotes marital harmony, prevents infidelity and improves fetal well-being. Negative beliefs were more frequent; they were that sex could harm the unborn child (cause injuries, miscarriage or fetal infection) and endanger the pregnancy or maternal health (cause membrane rupture, bleeding, preterm labor and maternal infection)...
