  1. 1. Birth asphyxia : Fetal scalp blood sampling and risk factors for hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy

    Author : Lena Liljeström; Maria Jonsson; Anna-Karin Wikström; Ulf Högberg; Andreas Herbst; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : asphyxia; fetal scalp blood sampling; hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy; obstetric emergencies; operative deliveries for fetal distress; overweight; short stature; Obstetrik och gynekologi; Obstetrics and Gynaecology;

    Abstract : Preventing birth asphyxia is a major challenge in delivery care. The aims of this thesis were to evaluate fetal scalp blood sampling (FBS) and explore risk factors for moderate to severe neonatal hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy (HIE). READ MORE

  2. 2. Cumulative Live Birth Rates after In Vitro Fertilization

    Author : Catharina Olivius; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : in vitro fertilization; cumulative live birth; single embryo transfer; frozen-thawed cycle; discontinuation;

    Abstract : Background: In vitro fertilization (IVF) has become increasingly common, today representing about 3% of all live births in some countries. Most patients have to undergo more than one treatment in order to achieve a live birth. Thus cumulative live birth rates are highly interesting to the patients. READ MORE

  3. 3. Family, Neighborhoods, and Health : Conditions for the Development of Human Capabilities

    Author : Evelina Björkegren; Helena Svaleryd; Hans Grönqvist; Erik Plug; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Health; Inequality; Mortality; Intergenerational Mobility; Birth-order; Neighborhoods; Birth; Childhood; Youth; Capabilities; Education; Economics; Nationalekonomi;

    Abstract : Essay 1: We use data from a large sample of adoptees born in Sweden to decompose the intergenerational persistence in health inequality across generations into one pre-birth component, measured by the biological parents’ longevity, and one post-birth component, measured by the adopting parents’ longevity. We find that most of the health inequality is transmitted via pre-birth factors. READ MORE

  4. 4. Prediction of embryo viability by morphology and metabolomic profiling

    Author : Aisling Ahlström; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NIR spectroscopy; morphology; blastocyst; IVF; trophectoderm; live birth; metabolomic; embryo;

    Abstract : Abstract The ultimate challenge for all in vitro fertilisation (IVF) clinics is to develop the ability to select for transfer the best single embryo first, from the patient’s cohort of embryos, thereby maximising the chance of pregnancy while the incidence of multiple pregnancies is kept to a minimum and fewer transfer cycles are required. This ambition has driven extensive research and development into methods that can be used to predict embryo viability. READ MORE

  5. 5. Ovarian Reserve and Assisted Reproduction

    Author : Thomas Brodin; Jan Holte; Matts Olovsson; Lars Berglund; Juha Tapanainen; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; AFC; AMH; anti-Müllerian hormone; antral follicle count; follicle-stimulating hormone; FSH; ICSI; infertility; intracytoplasmic sperm injection; in vitro fertilization; IVF; LH; live birth; luteinizing hormone; menstrual cycle; menstrual cycle length; ovarian reserve; pregnancy; reproductive endocrinology; reproductive technology; Medicinsk vetenskap; Medical Science;

    Abstract : Treatment success in IVF-ICSI is mainly limited by female age, but differences in ovarian reserve (OR; the remaining pool of oocytes and their quality) between individuals modify treatment prerequisites among women of similar age. OR may be assessed by OR tests (ORTs). READ MORE
