Novel Index Could Identify Rapid Bone Loss Risk

Developed by researchers at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA; USA), and the University of Tokyo (Japan), the Bone Balance Index (BBI) estimates the relationship between resorption (urinary N-telopeptide) and formation (osteocalcin) markers. To create the index, the researchers used data from a cohort of 685 women between the ages of 42 and 52 as they went through menopause. The women were either premenopausal or in early perimenopause when they enrolled in the study, and had their final menstrual period during the follow-up period. More...

New Approach Improves Identification of Women at High Risk of Preeclampsia

A new meta-analysis examining 92 cohort studies involving over 25 million pregnancies has provided an unprecedented understanding of risk factors for preeclampsia—some risk factors being strong enough to warrant that a pregnant woman starts on prophylactic treatment with acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) when she has only one.
