Results of a multicenter study of 129 women with advanced breast cancer show that a blood test that spots cancer-linked DNA correctly predicted that most of those patients with higher levels of the tumor markers died significantly earlier than those with lower levels.

Bacteria in the Cervix May Be Key to Understanding Premature Birth

Depending on the specific type, bacteria in a woman’s vagina and cervix may increase the risk of premature birth or protect against it, according to new research from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. Results of the study provide groundbreaking information that the authors suggest could help physicians learn how to prevent preterm birth, either by eliminating the “bad” bacteria, or increasing the “protective” bacteria.

Examining Women’s Bones During Menopause May Help Head Off Fractures

Jepsen is the lead author on a new study, published in the Journal of Bone and Mineral Research, that examined the bone traits of 198 midlife women transitioning through menopause for 14 years. The goal: identifying women who will experience bone fragility well in advance of fracture.

Hospital-Led Interventions Associated with Significant Reduction in Cesarean Rate

A new study led by clinician-researchers at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) has found that hospital-led interventions over a seven-year period were associated with a significant reduction in the hospital’s Cesarean delivery rate. During the intervention period, researchers found that the Cesarean rate for low-risk women having their first delivery decreased from 34.8 percent to 21.2 percent. The hospital’s overall Cesarean rate also declined from 40 percent to 29.1 percent over the same period.

Biologists Identify Reproductive "Traffic Cop"

chromosomal-chaperone-images_0.jpg

University of Iowa researchers have found a protein that regulates how chromosomes pair up and pass genetic information. FDK-6 dictates the speed at which maternal and paternal chromosome strands move and join in roundworms. The findings were published online this month in The Journal of Cell Biology.
