Lots of discussion about lack of advancement in women's health

Here is the thing. We will NOT advance reproductive/pregnancy/women's health science by continuing to do clinical trials that are NOT based on fundamental mechanisms that drive health & disease

hang on...🧵🧵🧵
Let me explain:

Millions (millions)💲 have been spent to perform clinical trials to decrease adverse pregnancy outcomes such as #preeclampsia

Trials on Vitamin C, E, magnesium, aspirin, calcium

Perhaps, you might be thinking--those are pretty generic interventions 👀

And you would be right. They are.

Vit C & E clinical trial was based on concept that there is evidence of oxidative stress in placentas from preeclamptic individuals

OK. Yes, but oxidative stress is a pretty ubiquitous biological event

We hope you enjoyed @ConwaySPHERE on @10Things_ToKnow last night on @RTEOne (catch us on here if you missed it )

But that's not all from us for this year's #ScienceWeekIreland ...

More details in thread (1/3) ⬇️
Wednesday Nov 10th @ConwaySPHERE will be featured on @RTEOne "Science to the Rescue" where we'll discuss our @scienceirel funded "AI For Societal Good" winning project #AI_PREMie & our goal to save lives of🤰+👶 from #preeclampsia

More details➡️…
Finally, Thurs Nov 11th for @scienceirel @DeptofFHed #CreatingOurFuture initiative we're hosting an awareness tea/coffee morning in @ucddublin to discuss thrombotic disorders & women’s health with @ThrombosisIrL& @UCDDiscovery

Can you monitor maternal & fetal safety in clinical trials in pregnancy? Now you can, with #MFAET version 1.0 published this week @ISPDHQ
The 12 maternal & 19 fetal Adverse Event definitions are adopted by @MedDRAMSSO……
1/ Researchers @ucl @UCL_IfWH @UCLHresearch have developed a standard terminology for safety monitoring for pregnant women and their fetuses during development of drugs for pregnancy. #Pregnancy #AdverseEvents #MaternalSafety #fetus #MedDRA #MFAET…
2/ Adverse Event (AE) monitoring is central to assess therapeutic safety. The lack of an AE framework in pregnancy trials severely limits understanding risks in pregnant women. #MFAET was developed by international consensus of healthcare professionals & patient public groups.

New research from @JohnsHopkins about maternal health!

Vaught AJ, Minhas A, Boyer T et al. Incidence of essential hypertension but not echocardiographic abnormalities at four years with a history of preeclampsia with severe features.

#ph260720 #Moms
In this new study, we followed up with women four years after they were diagnosed with preeclampsia during pregnancy. What type of research study is that?
#ph260720 #Epidemiology
Preeclampsia is a pregnancy-specific disorder that causes high blood pressure and evidence of damage to the kidneys and/or liver. Preeclampsia and other hypertensive disorders of pregnancy impact between 5-8% of births in the US.

1/17 Taking forward the theme of #WorldKidneyDay let’s discuss what it means for “#WOMEN to live well with #kidney disease” 💃
🧵ahead is for anyone who cares about 💃!

Q-Do kidney diseases affect women differently?
Women have
⬆️Autoimmune diseases (SLE, RA, Systemic Scleroderma)
In #Women of Color that's 2- 3X commoner, early-onset with⬆️ complications

⬆️UTI due to short urethra
In #Pregnancy ⬆️risk of pyelonephritis and sepsis…
3/17 Pregnancy poses a high risk of #kidney injury due to various etiologies (see pic) which can progress to CKD in the future.
#Preeclampsia is a definite risk factor for #CKD and #ESKD in mother and also for #cardiovascular disease

Excited to see our paper in @JCI_insight! Silver lining of lab shutdown this yr was time to wrap up this project which has been yrs in the making.

We studied a Stox1 KO mouse model to probe mechanisms underlying hypertensive disorders of #pregnancy. 1/…
STOX1 is a TF and predicted #preeclampsia risk gene IDed through family-based genetic linkage studies (van Dijk, @NatureGenet 2005). A variant in the DNA-binding domain was proposed to alter protein function ➡️ preE susceptibility. But LOF model had not been studied. 🐁 2/
*We found that loss of Stox1 ➡️ gHTN assd w placental hypoxia + abnormal ECM deposition.
*We observed activation of the uteroplacental renin-angiotensin system in Stox1 KO mice.
*Treatment w an ARB, losartan, rescued the gHTN phenotype, validating the mechanism. 3/

🧠Preeclampsia is vascular disorder
🧠Preeclampsia defined below @acog
🧠Once you have PE, greater 🫀 events, HTN, DM
🧠 But also BRAIN effects

🤰Preeclampsia is an exaggerated response of pregnancy induced inflammation, hyperlipidemia and hypercoagulation
⬆️ risk of:
