We discuss these findings and make recommendations about scaling up and costs for future early child development programs. © 2014 New York Academy of Sciences....
Intensive care treatment of ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS)
Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS) is a morbid, iatrogenic, and potentially lethal condition caused by the pharmacological induction of ovulation. In OHSS, the ovaries are the site of significant stromal edema with bilateral cystic ovarian enlargement. It has been suggested tha...
Long-term progestin-only contraception in humans versus animal models
We describe these models including the guinea pig, an animal model we have previously investigated, to assess the mechanisms involved in abnormal uterine bleeding following long-term progestin-only contraception. © 2011 New York Academy of Sciences....
Epigenetics in lupus
Accumulating epidemiological, clinical, and experimental evidence supports the conclusion of a critical role of epigenetic factors in immune programming. This understanding provides the basis for elucidating how the intricate interactions of the genome, epigenome, and transcriptome s...

These examples clearly illustrate the value of a population geneti...
