High Diversity and Variability in the Vaginal Microbiome in Women following Preterm Premature Rupture of Membranes (PPROM): A Prospective Cohort Study.

Teenus Paramel Jayaprakash, Emily C Wagner, Julie van Schalkwyk, Arianne Y K Albert, Janet E Hill, Deborah M Money, ,

<h4>Objective</h4>To characterize the vaginal microbiota of women following preterm premature rupture of membranes (PPROM), and determine if microbiome composition predicts latency duration and perinatal outcomes.<h4>Design</h4>A prospective cohort study.<h4>Setting</h4>Canada.<h4>Population</h4>Women with PPROM between 24+0 and 33+6 weeks gestational age (GA).<h4>Methods</h4>Microbiome profiles, based on pyrosequencing of the cpn60 universal target, were generated from ...

A Study of the Vaginal Microbiome in Healthy Canadian Women Utilizing cpn60-Based Molecular Profiling Reveals Distinct Gardnerella Subgroup Community State Types.

Arianne Y K Albert, Bonnie Chaban, Emily C Wagner, John J Schellenberg, Matthew G Links, Julie van Schalkwyk, Gregor Reid, Sean M Hemmingsen, Janet E Hill, Deborah Money, ,

The vaginal microbiota is important in women's reproductive and overall health. However, the relationships between the structure, function and dynamics of this complex microbial community and health outcomes remain elusive. The objective of this study was to determine the phylogenetic range and abundance of prokaryotes in the vaginal microbiota of ... Read more >>

Evidence of Subclinical mtDNA Alterations in HIV-Infected Pregnant Women Receiving Combination Antiretroviral Therapy Compared to HIV-Negative Pregnant Women.

Deborah M Money, Emily C Wagner, Evelyn J Maan, Tessa Chaworth-Musters, Izabelle Gadawski, Julie E van Schalkwyk, John C Forbes, David R Burdge, Arianne Y K Albert, Zoe Lohn, Hélène C F Côté, ,

<h4>Introduction</h4>Combination antiretroviral therapy (cART) can effectively prevent vertical transmission of HIV but there is potential risk of adverse maternal, foetal or infant effects. Specifically, the effect of cART use during pregnancy on mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) content in HIV-positive (HIV+) women is unclear. We sought to characterize subclinical alterations in peripheral ...

Characterization of the vaginal microbiota of healthy Canadian women through the menstrual cycle.

Bonnie Chaban, Matthew G Links, Teenus Paramel Jayaprakash, Emily C Wagner, Danielle K Bourque, Zoe Lohn, Arianne Yk Albert, Julie van Schalkwyk, Gregor Reid, Sean M Hemmingsen, Janet E Hill, Deborah M Money,

<h4>Background</h4>The vaginal microbial community plays a vital role in maintaining women's health. Understanding the precise bacterial composition is challenging because of the diverse and difficult-to-culture nature of many bacterial constituents, necessitating culture-independent methodology. During a natural menstrual cycle, physiological changes could have an impact on bacterial growth, colonization, and community ... Read more >>

Hepatitis C infection among pregnant women in British Columbia: reported prevalence and critical appraisal of current prenatal screening methods.

Audrey Blasig, Emily C Wagner, David Pi, Mark Bigham, Valencia P Remple, Kevin J P Craib, Patrick Doyle, Simon Dobson, Eric M Yoshida, David Patrick, Mel Krajden, Deborah M Money, ,

<h4>Background</h4>Despite the fact that hepatitis C virus (HCV) is a relatively common infection in Canada, particularly in British Columbia (BC), there is a paucity of information on actual HCV prevalence in pregnant women. At present, pregnant women are only screened if they fit risk criteria, which may result in under-identification ... Read more >>

Hematological changes associated with egg production: direct evidence for changes in erythropoiesis but a lack of resource dependence?

Emily C Wagner, Christine A Stables, Tony D Williams,

Reductions in hematological parameters among laying birds are well reported, but the cause of this anemia is not known. We tested specific predictions generated from several, non-mutually exclusive hypotheses for mechanisms underlying reproductive anemia associated with egg production (hemodilution, transient suppression of erythropoiesis, resource dependence) in relation to (1) the ...

Hematological changes associated with egg production: estrogen dependence and repeatability.

Emily C Wagner, Jaime S Prevolsek, Katherine E Wynne-Edwards, Tony D Williams,

The 'cost of reproduction' (i.e. the trade-off between current reproduction and future fecundity and/or survival) is a central concept in life history theory, yet we still know very little about the physiological mechanisms underlying such costs. Recently it has been recognized that reproduction itself or the regulatory (hormonal) mechanisms underlying ... Read more >>

Inadequacy of plasma acyclovir levels at delivery in patients with genital herpes receiving oral acyclovir suppressive therapy in late pregnancy.

Daniel T Leung, Paul A Henning, Emily C Wagner, Audrey Blasig, Anna Wald, Stephen L Sacks, Lawrence Corey, Deborah M Money,

<h4>Objective</h4>Acyclovir therapy in late pregnancy among women with recurrent genital herpes is effective in decreasing genital lesion frequency and subclinical viral shedding rates at delivery, thereby decreasing the need for Caesarean section. Despite good adherence and increased dosing schedules, breakthrough lesions and viral shedding are still observed in some women ... Read more >>

Experimental (antiestrogen-mediated) reduction in egg size negatively affects offspring growth and survival.

Emily C Wagner, Tony D Williams,

The relationship between egg size and offspring phenotype is critical to our understanding of the selective pressures acting on the key reproductive life-history traits of egg size and number. Yet there is surprisingly little empirical evidence to support a strong, positive relationship between egg size and offspring quality (i.e., offspring ... Read more >>
