Glutaminase 2 expression is associated with adrenocortical carcinoma patients’ survival

B. Oliveira Sofia , Pinto Clara , M. Costa Madalena , Sousa Diana , S. Pereira Sofia , Pignatelli Duarte

Adrenocortical carcinomas (ACC) are rare and usually very aggressive tumors with heterogeneous outcomes. The individual variability in tumor progression and patientsÂ’ survival is linked to ACC biology and molecular heterogeneity, reinforcing the need to identify markers with prognosis value, to allow an accurate clinical strategy. Currently, in the absence of specific molecular markers, ACC prognosis is mainly predicted by the European Network for the Study of Adrenal Tum...

Introduction: Gestational diabetes (GD) is associated with a significantly higher risk of perinatal complications. It has been suggested that third-trimester (3thT) foetal abdominal circumference (fAC) determination is an important predictor of macrossomia and large for gestational age (LGA).Aims: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the association between the 3thT fAC percentile with birthweight (BW) and adverse neonatal outc...

Introduction: Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is associated with important neonatal risks and a higher incidence of large-for-gestational-age (LGA) newborns and fetal macrosomia. The aim of our work was to define a third-trimester HbA1c cut-off point for increased risk of fetal morbidity, macrosomia and LGA newborns.Methodology: Observational retrospective study of all singleton pregnant women with GDM, followed at our Diabetes and Pregnancy Clinic b...

Twin pregnancy with gestational diabetes mellitus: Maternal and fetal outcomes

Fonseca Liliana , Santos Tiago , Vilaverde Joana , Saraiva Miguel , Pereira Teresa , Nunes Inês , Pinto Clara , Rodrigues Rosa , Pichel Fernando , Dores Jorge

Introduction: In singleton pregnancies, gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) results in an increased risk for maternal and neonatal complications. In twin pregnancies, however, the effect of GDM on maternal and neonatal complications appears to be different in comparison to singletons. The few studies that investigated the consequences of GDM in twin pregnancies are small and present conficting evidence, with some finding no difference in perinatal outcomes between GDM and non-...
