Nausea medication for pregnancy does not increase risk of malformations
In an analysis that included more than 40,000 women exposed to the nausea medication metoclopramide in pregnancy, the drug was not associated with significantly increased risk of major congenital malformations overall, spontaneous abortion, or stillbirth.

How fat could help solve part of the diabetes problem
Sydney scientists now describe how a fat recycling system within pancreatic ‘beta cells’ determines the amount of insulin to secrete, and so may provide a target for future diabetes therapies.

Women of color less informed about incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse
Knowing what symptoms to look for may help women with pelvic floor disorders improve their chances of successful treatment. But knowledge of these disorders is lacking among most women, and especially among women of color, according to a new study by researchers at Yale School of Medicine.

A new study from the Norwegian Institute of Public Health suggests that long-term use of paracetamol, the most commonly used medicine in pregnancy, may increase the risk of adverse effects on child development.

Exposure to obesity hormone negates birth's protective effect on breast cancer
Like humans, young rats that give birth have a reduced risk of breast cancer later in life. But a new study shows that this protective effect in animals is negated if they're exposed to an obesity-linked hormone during pregnancy.

How events may be coordinated during embryogenesis

Sibling cells can be passed from mother to pups in dogs
Some people possess a small number of cells in their bodies that are not genetically their own; this condition is known as microchimerism. In prior studies, researchers from the University of Missouri College of Veterinary Medicine found this condition also exists in dogs.

Rare childhood disease gives clues to Alzheimer's and Parkinson's
Scientists at Rutgers University studying the cause of a rare childhood disease that leaves children unable to walk by adolescence say new findings may provide clues to understanding more common neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's and Parkinson's and developing better tools to treat them.

Exercise during gestation has the potential to program vascular health in offspring into their adulthood, in particular significantly altering the vascular smooth muscle.

Unstudied gene essential for normal nerves
Our ability to detect heat, touch, tickling and other sensations depends on our sensory nerves. Now, for the first time, researchers have identified a gene that orchestrates the crucially important branching of nerve fibers that occurs during development.

Anthropologist explain evolutionary benefit of personality traits
