US NIH begins study of COVID-19 vaccination during pregnancy and postpartum

#pregnancy #COVID19 #coronavirus #COVIDVaccine #SARSCoV2 Researchers will measure antibodies against SARSCoV2, assess vaccine safety & evaluate transfer of vaccine-induced antibodies to infants A new observational study has begun to evaluate the immune responses generated by COVID-19 vaccines administered to pregnant or postpartum people. Researchers will measure the development and durability of antibodies against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, in people vaccina

Association between periodontal pathogens and systemic disease

#oralhealth #inflammation #Alzheimers #pregnancy #pneumonia #obesity #diabetes #heartidisease A growing body of literature suggests that there is a link between periodontitis and systemic diseases. These diseases include cardiovascular disease, gastrointestinal and colorectal cancer, diabetes and insulin resistance, and Alzheimer's disease, as well as respiratory tract infection and adverse pregnancy outcomes. The presence of periodontal pathogens and their metabolic by-produ

Meconial Methanobrevibacter smithii suggests intrauterine methanogen colonization in preterm neonate

#methanogen #pregnancy #microbiome #archaea To understand the dynamics of methanogens in the human intestinal #microbiota, we investigated the presence of methanogens in meconium using a polyphasic approach including microscopy and PCR-sequencing in 33 meconium samples collected from 33 pre-term neonates, in accordance with current ethics regulation. In the presence of negative controls, 90.9% samples were real-time PCR-positive for methanogens and 69.7 % were PCR-sequencing

Association between periodontal pathogens and systemic disease

A growing body of literature suggests that there is a link between periodontitis and systemic diseases. These diseases include cardiovascular disease, gastrointestinal and colorectal cancer, diabetes and insulin resistance, and Alzheimer's disease, as well as respiratory tract infection and adverse pregnancy outcomes. The presence of periodontal pathogens and their metabolic by-products in the mouth may in fact modulate the immune response beyond the oral cavity, thus promoti

The Association Between Oral Health And Systemic Disease

Oral health has been linked to systemic diseases in patients who suffer from diabetes, pulmonary disease, & in pregnant women. Improving oral health could have a direct impact on the general health of the individual & prevent other diseases as well. #oralhealth #diabetes #heart #pregnancy #microbiology #inflammation https://www.trueactivist.com/david-ojcius-discusses-the-association-between-oral-health-and-systemic-disease/
