British scientists have grown a mini placenta, which will help to reduce the likelihood of difficulties in childbirth.
The results of the study Kabardinskogo University will help to answer the question, why do miscarriages occur, what triggers premature birth and how to prevent preeclampsia, reports the Daily Mail.
The analysis of artificial placenta allowed to obtain important information about the morning vomiting, which occurs in some pregnant women in the morning.
Researchers previously suggested that high-risk pregnancy occurs due to abnormal placenta in the first three months of pregnancy, but could not observe the process directly.
It should be noted that the placenta performs an important function in the body of a pregnant woman, because transportorul oxygen and nutrients from mother to child. But disruption can lead to many problems in childbirth. Moreover, increases probability of death of both mother and child.
The stages of creating a mini-placenta
Thirty years it took the midwives to recreate the placenta, though in a reduced form. Mini of the placenta are so small that they can only be seen under a microscope. However, scientists have “grown” organs completely identical to natural.
The experiments showed that the mini-placenta can release the protein GDF15, which was considered to be acts on the part of the brain that controls vomiting. The findings can lead to new drug to treat severe morning sickness.
Mini placenta also helps to explain why the zika virus and other harmful micro-organisms can pass through the placenta and harm the baby.
Recall, if you want to have healthy offspring, you have to get rid of extra pounds.
