Having a C-section is related to difficulties with conceiving      (via sciencedaily.com)     Original source 

Women who delivered their previous pregnancy by C-section spent a longer time trying to conceive their next pregnancy. Additionally, women who spent a longer time trying to conceive their current pregnancy were more likely to deliver by C-section. The authors concluded that differences in time spent trying to conceive are unlikely to be due to the surgical procedure itself.

Blood clotting risk quickly drops after stopping hormonal contraceptives      (via sciencedaily.com)     Original source 

Using birth control pills and other hormone-based contraceptives is known to elevate the risk of blood clots, but a new study suggests that this risk largely goes away within two to four weeks after one stops using these contraceptives. The findings can help patients and doctors weigh the benefits and risks of hormonal contraceptives and guide when to stop using them ahead of events that could further increase the risk of dangerous clots, such as major surgery, prolonged periods of immobility, or when tapering anticoagulant medications after a blood clot.

Visualizing fungal infections deep in living host tissue reveals proline metabolism facilitates virulence      (via sciencedaily.com)     Original source 

Scientists have published the first successful application of 2-photon intravital microscopy (IVM) to image the dynamics of fungal infections in the kidney of a living host. The study reveals that the opportunistic human fungal pathogen Candida albicans requires the ability to metabolize proline, an amino acid obtained from the host, to mount virulent infections.

Fungal infection in the brain produces changes like those seen in Alzheimer's disease      (via sciencedaily.com)     Original source 

Researchers have discovered how the fungus Candida albicans enters the brain, activates two separate mechanisms in brain cells that promote its clearance, and, important for the understanding of Alzheimer's disease development, generates amyloid beta (Ab)-like peptides, toxic protein fragments from the amyloid precursor protein that are considered to be at the center of the development of Alzheimer's disease.

Brain is 'rewired' during pregnancy to prepare for motherhood      (via sciencedaily.com)     Original source 

Researchers have shown that pregnancy hormones ‘rewire’ the brain to prepare mice for motherhood. The findings show that both estrogen and progesterone act on a small population of neurons in the brain to switch on parental behavior even before offspring arrive. These adaptations resulted in stronger and more selective responses to pups.

A gut hormone for controlling appetite doubles as an immune regulator for the fungal microbiome      (via sciencedaily.com)     Original source 

Peptide YY (PYY), a hormone produced by gut endocrine cells that was already known to control appetite, also plays an important role in maintaining the balance of fungi in the digestive system of mammals, according to new research.

Deadly fungus beaten with new type of treatment      (via sciencedaily.com)     Original source 

Researchers have discovered a new way to attack fungal infections. The key is to block fungi from being able to make fatty acids, the major component of fats. Resistance to anti-fungal drugs is increasing and this new approach will be particularly useful because it works in a new way and affects a broad range of fungal species.

New study using human fibroid cells supports use of green tea compound as treatment for uterine fibroids      (via sciencedaily.com)     Original source 

In a pre-clinical, proof-of-concept study, researchers found that epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), a green tea compound with powerful antioxidant properties, could be promising for both treating and preventing uterine fibroids. Results of the study add to growing evidence that EGCG may reduce fibroid cell growth. The study was specifically designed to identify the biochemical mechanisms responsible for EGCG action in fibroid cells.

Exposure therapy to feared foods may help kids with eating disorders      (via sciencedaily.com)     Original source 

Whether you're afraid of dogs, needles or enclosed spaces, one of the most effective interventions for this type of anxiety disorder is exposure therapy in which you confront your fear in a safe environment. A new study finds that exposure therapy is also a promising treatment for adolescents with eating disorders. They found that exposure to feared foods -- such as candy bars and pizza -- helped kids who were in a partial hospitalization program for eating disorders experience decreased anxiety toward food.

Dynamic expression of brain serotonin receptors across the menstrual cycle provides clues about premenstrual dysphoric disorder      (via sciencedaily.com)     Original source 

A new study explores the interplay between the serotonin system and estradiol in the brain, showing that the central nervous system in patients with premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD) seems to increase serotonin transporter density from the periovulatory phase (when estradiol levels are high) to premenstrual cycle phase (when both estradiol and progesterone are decreasing). The findings have the potential to advance the clinical treatment of PMDD.
