Investigates the expression of 5-lipoxygenase (5-LOX) and 5-LOX activating protein (FLAP) in fetal membranes to determine whether there are changes with gestational age or at term with the onset of labor. Expression of 5-LOX and FLAP messenger RNA in the amnion at different gestational stages; Expression of both 5-LOX and FLAP transcripts in the chorion-decidua.

    The mechanisms of human preterm labour appear inextricably linked to cytokine biosynthesis by gestational tissues. In turn, cytokine production by gestational tissues has been shown to be regulated by epigenetic mechanisms. In this paper, we demonstrate that cytokine production in gestational...

    Placental teratoma was first described in 1925. It is a rare non-trophoblastic tumour occurring in women of childbearing age. It is usually the size of a hazel nut and composed of tissue arising from the three germ layers. The main differential diagnosis is fetus acardia amorphous. The proposed...
