NEJM ( is a weekly general medical journal that publishes new medical research findings, review articles, and editorial opinion on a wide variety of topics of importance to biomedical science and clinical practice.

Aspirin versus Placebo in Pregnancies at High Risk for Preterm Preeclampsia
31/12/69 - Preeclampsia is an important cause of death and complications for the mother and baby. The risk of such complications is considerably higher when the disease is severe and of early onset, leading to preterm birth at less than 37 weeks of gestation. Major challenges in modern obstetrics are the…

Kinetics of Zika Viral Load in Semen
31/12/69 - To the Editor: Although sexual transmission of Zika virus (ZIKV) probably accounts for few of the epidemiologic characteristics of the current outbreak, possible infection of pregnant women is a major concern. The maximum reported duration of detectable ZIKV RNA in semen is at least 188 days after…

Aspirin to Prevent Preeclampsia
31/12/69 - Not long after the physiological effects of prostacyclin (epoprostenol) and thromboxane on platelets and vessel walls were elucidated, it was suggested that many of the pathophysiological features of preeclampsia might be explained by disordered eicosanoid metabolism. The effects of aspirin in low…

31/12/69 - Foreword. This Journal feature begins with a case vignette highlighting a common clinical problem. Evidence supporting various strategies is then presented, followed by a review of formal guidelines, when they exist. The article ends with the author?s clinical recommendations. Stage. A 23-year-old…

NAD Deficiency, Congenital Malformations, and Niacin Supplementation
31/12/69 - Major congenital malformations occur in at least 2% of human births. There are relatively few identified causes. The origins of most malformations have been difficult to determine and probably involve genetic and environmental factors or gene?environment interaction. Although malformations…

Metabolism and Congenital Malformations ? NAD?s Effects on Development
31/12/69 - We have long known that metabolism must be tightly controlled to support the needs of individual cells and tissues. Nutrient oxidation is necessary for the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which supports energetically unfavorable processes in cells, and for the metabolic conversion of…

Supporting Women?s Autonomy in Prenatal Testing
31/12/69 - Early and noninvasive fetal genetic sequencing is on the horizon. Such expanded prenatal testing could offer patients substantial benefits. But current practices in prenatal screening and the complex nature of genomic science and technology create the risk that these tests will be integrated into…

Nystagmus from Wernicke?s Encephalopathy

Alternative Science and Human Reproduction
31/12/69 - Human reproduction has become the victim of alternative science, rife with alternative definitions of well-understood medical conditions and characterized by rejection of the scientific method as the standard for generating and evaluating evidence. Alternative science begins with alternative facts…

Preventing Fat Gain by Blocking Follicle-Stimulating Hormone
31/12/69 - In a recent report, Liu and colleagues presented evidence that follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) influences thermogenesis and adiposity in mice. They had reported previously that a polyclonal antibody that targets the beta subunit of FSH diminished ovariectomy-induced bone loss in mice. In the…
