    1539 Words  | 7 Pages

    Placenta is an organ found in all pregnant women, which forms inside the mother’s uterus and is connected to the fetus in order for it to receive nutrients and be able to develop healthier. After giving birth and ejecting the placenta, mothers choose whether to intake the placenta as a form to recover from childbirth. The placenta is usually made into pills or is eaten raw but is mixed with other foods, such as tacos, kabobs, and smoothies. The intake of placenta has also sparked controversy to

    suggesting that the accumulation of fat molecules in the placenta restricted the blood to flow through. Moreover, Insufficient oxygen and nutrients from the placental can interfere with the growth of the fetus. The immunohistochemistry, confirmed no TLR4 staining in the chorionic villous stroma in control placentas. Conversely, there were increased levels of TLR4 staining in chorionic villous stroma and syncytiotrophoblast in HFD placentas. (1) The TLR4 is a protein pathway responsible for activating

It will transfer nutrients and oxygen from the mother to the baby, and waste products from the baby back to the maternal system, it will produce and secrete hormones, and will be in charge of the immunological barrier. The placenta is connected to the foetus by the umbilical cord. Backbone, vertebral, the central nervous system

  • The Umbilical Cord Is An Essential Lifeline Between The Mother And Fetus

    2258 Words  | 10 Pages

    The umbilical cord is an essential lifeline between the mother and fetus. The cord contains two arteries and a vein, is connected to the placenta and provides oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to the fetus in-utero. Though parents are informed during discharge on how to perform dry care for the umbilical cord until it falls off approximately within one to two weeks, care for the cord begins in the hospital setting following the delivery. The main implication for umbilical cord care is to prevent infectious

    The placenta separates itself from the wall of the uterus and is delivered after the birth of the baby. In placenta abruption however, the placenta detaches from the wall of the uterus before or during the birth of the baby (Oyelese and Cande, 2006). Placenta abruption causes 33% of antepartum haemorrhage in pregnant women (Raynor et al, 2012). It is a major obstetric emergency occurring in around one in a hundred pregnancies and it requires urgent medical attention (Hanretty, 2010). Placenta abruption

  • A Fetal Organ That Is Vital For The Growth Of The Fetus During Pregnancy

    Project Background (500 words) The placenta is a fetal organ that is vital for the growth of the fetus during pregnancy. Abnormalities in placental development can result in pregnancy complications such as intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) and pre-eclampsia (PE), which affect one in ten pregnancies in New Zealand. IUGR occurs in 3-5% of all pregnancies, and is associated with an assortment of increased risks of its own, such as hypoglycaemia, hypothermia, developmental delays and increased

    gestation whereas gender showed minimal effect on growth. Introduction Fetal development during pregnancy is predominantly related to the placenta and its function in fetal-maternal exchange (Ishikawa et al. 2006). Alterations in the interactions between the fetus and maternal uterine environment thus permit for the modification in fetal growth. In addition, the placenta also acts as an endocrine organ that produces hormones necessary for the establishment and maintenance of pregnancy as well as fetal

  • What Activity During Oocyte Activation Prevents Penetration By Additional Sperm?

    864 Words  | 4 Pages

    What activity during oocyte activation prevents penetration by additional sperm? There are to methods consisting of an electrical block and mechanical block, which prevents penetration of additional sperms during oocyte activation. Electrical block involves the absences of fertilization (the oocyte contains a negative charge within and the sperm a positive charge). For instance, if an oocyte comes into contact with a sperm the negative charge within the oocyte changes to positive resulting any other

    through the blood-brain barrier, blood-testes barrier and placental barrier (De Jong et al., 2008; Lankveld et al., 2010). Jo et al., (2013) found that ZnO NPs were distributed in mammary tissue of the dam and liver and kidney of the pups. However, the placenta is not an effective barrier because environmental pollutants and drugs can easily cross this barrier and cause birth defects (Perera et al., 2003; Olivero et al., 1997). Nanoparticles even in the absence of placental transfer, may pose a risk to
