Synergy and interactions among biological pathways leading to preterm premature rupture of membranes.
Reprod Sci
PUBLISHED: 05-19-2014
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Preterm premature rupture of membranes (PPROM) occurs in 1% to 2% of births. Impact of PPROM is greatest in low- and middle-income countries where prematurity-related deaths are most common. Recent investigations identify cytokine and matrix metalloproteinase activation, oxidative stress, and apoptosis as primary pathways to PPROM. These biological processes are initiated by heterogeneous etiologies including infection/inflammation, placental bleeding, uterine overdistention, and genetic polymorphisms. We hypothesize that pathways to PPROM overlap and act synergistically to weaken membranes. We focus our discussion on membrane composition and strength, pathways linking risk factors to membrane weakening, and future research directions to reduce the global burden of PPROM.

The emergence of Clostridium difficile infection among peripartum women: a case-control study of a C. difficile outbreak on an obstetrical service.
Infect Dis Obstet Gynecol
PUBLISHED: 04-12-2011
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
An outbreak of 20 peripartum Clostridium difficile infections (CDI) occurred on the obstetrical service at the University of Washington Medical Center (UWMC) between April 2006 and June 2007. In this report, we characterize the clinical manifestations, describe interventions that appeared to reduce CDI, and determine potential risk factors for peripartum CDI.

Assessment of changes in condom use among female sex workers in a prospective cohort study introducing diaphragm use for disease prevention.
Am. J. Epidemiol.
PUBLISHED: 07-26-2010
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Changes in the rates of condom use and number of sexual partners were evaluated among 140 female sex workers in Kibera, Kenya, participating in a 6-month study of diaphragm safety and acceptability for prevention of sexually transmitted infections conducted in 2004-2005. Analyses were stratified by partner type. Multivariable Tobit regression modeling was used to assess the association between study visit and proportion of acts protected. Participants completed 140 baseline visits and 390 bimonthly follow-up visits. The mean percentage of coital acts reported as protected by a condom increased from 56% at baseline to 68% at the 6-month visit (P < 0.01). Similar increases were observed for condom use by all partner types. Additionally, the mean number of sexual partners decreased over the study. Furthermore, consistent (i.e., 100%) diaphragm use during follow-up was associated with a higher proportion of coital acts protected by a condom in analyses adjusted for study visit and coital frequency. These findings suggest that, despite concerns that introduction of the diaphragm would result in more risky sexual behaviors, reported condom use increased and number of partners decreased.

Diaphragm for STI and HIV prevention: is it a safe method for women at high risk?
Sex Transm Dis
PUBLISHED: 05-18-2010
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Female sex workers (n = 140) were enrolled in a 6-month acceptability trial of the diaphragm. We randomized a subset (n = 40) to receive colposcopies after 1 month of diaphragm use or after 1 month of observation before commencing diaphragm use. Adverse events were mild in nature. Frequency of colposcopic findings did not differ between women randomized to immediate versus delayed diaphragm use (P = 0.25).

Proposed oocyte donation guidelines for stem cell research.
Fertil. Steril.
PUBLISHED: 03-01-2010
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
To expand the availability of stem cell lines suitable for basic research and clinical application, somatic cell nuclear transfer has been proposed and will require human oocyte donation. The recommendations made by the California Institute of Regenerative Medicine advisory committee on oocyte donation are based on peer-reviewed, best practices, and best clinical judgment and are intended to assist researchers in design and Institutional Review Board (IRB) evaluation of research protocols for oocytes donated exclusively for research purposes.

Group A streptococcal infections in obstetrics and gynecology.
Clin Obstet Gynecol
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Group A streptococcal (GAS) infections continue to be an infrequent, but potentially lethal infections in women despite the victory over childbed fever in the 1800s. Invasive group A streptococcal infection still causes 40% of septic deaths among patients with postpartum endometritis, necrotizing fasciitis, and toxic shock syndrome. Many times symptoms and signs of this infection are nonspecific, but laboratory evaluation can suggest serious infection. The prudent combination of antibiotic and surgical therapy can be lifesaving.

A standardized template for clinical studies in preterm birth.
Reprod Sci
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Preterm birth is a major societal and economic problem accounting for 80 to 90% of neonatal morbidity and mortality worldwide. It is recognized as a complex multifactorial condition comprising several distinct clinical phenotypes with different underlying etiologies. As animal models are expensive and fail to mimic the biology of spontaneous preterm birth in humans, understanding the pathophysiology requires detailed clinical studies. Meta-analyses and clinical translation of data, however, are limited by heterogeneity of study design and size, publication and reporting biases, definition of patient groups, and a lack of standard universal definitions. This article provides a harmonized open-source template for designing clinical studies addressing preterm birth.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
