A Devastating Delay ? Zika and the Implementation Gap
01/01/70 - The epidemic of Zika in the Americas and the virus?s effects on fetal development have jolted the U.S. medical community and the broader public. Zika?s relatively recent emergence has necessitated rapid research on its virology and pathogenesis, transmission, clinical manifestations, and diagnosis.…

Brain MRI in Infants after Maternal Zika Virus Infection during Pregnancy
01/01/70 - To the Editor: An outbreak of Zika virus (ZIKV) infection occurred in Martinique, a French Caribbean island with nearly 400,000 residents, from December 2015 through October 2016. By the end of the outbreak, the number of clinically identified ZIKV infections had reached 36,590, a number that is…

Genetic Associations with Gestational Duration and Spontaneous Preterm Birth
01/01/70 - Preterm birth (defined as birth before 37 completed weeks of gestation) affects 9.6% of pregnancies in the United States and more than 15 million pregnancies worldwide each year. It is the leading cause of death in neonates and children under the age of 5 years. The majority of preterm births arise…

Connecting the Dots
01/01/70 - Foreword. In this Journal feature, information about a real patient is presented in stages (boldface type) to an expert clinician, who responds to the information, sharing his or her reasoning with the reader (regular type). The authors? commentary follows. Stage. A 46-year-old woman presented to…

Aspirin versus Placebo in Pregnancies at High Risk for Preterm Preeclampsia
01/01/70 - Preeclampsia is an important cause of death and complications for the mother and baby. The risk of such complications is considerably higher when the disease is severe and of early onset, leading to preterm birth at less than 37 weeks of gestation. Major challenges in modern obstetrics are the…

Aspirin to Prevent Preeclampsia
01/01/70 - Not long after the physiological effects of prostacyclin (epoprostenol) and thromboxane on platelets and vessel walls were elucidated, it was suggested that many of the pathophysiological features of preeclampsia might be explained by disordered eicosanoid metabolism. The effects of aspirin in low…

Kinetics of Zika Viral Load in Semen
01/01/70 - To the Editor: Although sexual transmission of Zika virus (ZIKV) probably accounts for few of the epidemiologic characteristics of the current outbreak, possible infection of pregnant women is a major concern. The maximum reported duration of detectable ZIKV RNA in semen is at least 188 days after…

01/01/70 - Foreword. This Journal feature begins with a case vignette highlighting a common clinical problem. Evidence supporting various strategies is then presented, followed by a review of formal guidelines, when they exist. The article ends with the author?s clinical recommendations. Stage. A 23-year-old…

Supporting Women?s Autonomy in Prenatal Testing
01/01/70 - Early and noninvasive fetal genetic sequencing is on the horizon. Such expanded prenatal testing could offer patients substantial benefits. But current practices in prenatal screening and the complex nature of genomic science and technology create the risk that these tests will be integrated into…

NAD Deficiency, Congenital Malformations, and Niacin Supplementation
01/01/70 - Major congenital malformations occur in at least 2% of human births. There are relatively few identified causes. The origins of most malformations have been difficult to determine and probably involve genetic and environmental factors or gene?environment interaction. Although malformations…
