Background: Gingivitis has been linked to adverse pregnancy outcome (APO). Bacterial vaginosis (BV) has been associated with APO. We assessed if bacterial counts in BV is associated with gingivitis suggesting a systemic infectious susceptibilty.

The length of the third stage of labour is a potential modifiable risk factor for postpartum haemorrhage at vaginal delivery, but there is no definitive evidence that early intervention to remove the placenta manually will prevent postpartum haemorrhage. We report a wide variation between countries in Europe in policies about the timing of manual removal of placenta. Two groups of countries with clearly divergent policies were identified. A randomised controlled trial is needed to provide definitive evidence on the risks and benefits of manual removal of placenta at different timings after vaginal delivery

Host genetic factors have previously been found to act as determinants of differential susceptibility to major infectious diseases. It is less clear whether such polymorphisms may also impose on pathogen recognition in mucosal overgrowth conditions such as bacterial vaginosis, an anaerobic overgrowth condition characterised by the presence of a vaginal biofilm consisting of the Gram-positive anaerobes Gardnerella vaginalis and Atopobium vaginae.

This study evaluated the microflora in root canals of necrotic teeth after radiotherapy of the head and neck region. The microbial composition of samples taken from necrotic root canals in patients treated with irradiation of the head and neck (group A, n = 13) and in healthy controls (group B, n = 11) was analyzed by terminal restriction fragment-length polymorphism (T-RFLP) analysis. A total of 50 different terminal restriction fragment lengths (T-RFs) (each representing one or more bacterial species) were detected in the T-RFLP profiles, 44 in group A and 28 in group B. A mean of 13.2 T-RFs per sample were detected in group A and 6.6 T-RFs were present per sample for group B (p

In 2007 staff from the International Centre for Reproductive Health (ICRH), a WHO Collaborating Centre, gathered in Belgium to discuss
the impact of research on policy making, and how to bridge the gap between research and policy. This research is based
on the principle that research needs to be applied and operational. The ICRH research unit is a multidisciplinary team
of scientific collaborators who are actively involved in research, services delivery and training in the field of SGBV.
