Embryogenesis -Paediatric Urology

Human gestation spans a period of 38 weeks, from fertilisation to birth. Conventionally, pregnancy is divided into three trimesters,  each of 3 months’ duration.  The formation of organs and systems (embryogenesis)  takes place principally between the third and 10th weeks of gestation. Throughout the remainder, the fetal organs undergo differentiation, branching, maturation and growth.… Embryogenesis -Paediatric Urology   



Sweeping view of prostate cancer genome yields deep insights

For the first time, researchers have laid bare the full genetic blueprint of multiple prostate tumors, uncovering alterations that have never before been detected and offering a deep view of the genetic missteps that underlie the disease. The study, made possible by key advances in whole genome sequencing and analysis, points to several new… Sweeping view of prostate cancer genome yields deep insights   



Genes an important factor in urinary incontinence

Much of the risk of developing incontinence before middle age is determined by our genes. Genetic factors can explain half of people’s susceptibility to urinary incontinence, a study of twins at the University of Gothenburg and Karolinska Institutet (Sweden) reveals.

Urinary incontinence is very common, especially among women, with around one in three affected… Genes an important factor in urinary incontinence   



Helping preterm babies get the best start

Babies born prematurely could be at greater risk of developing kidney diseases later in life according to a landmark study investigating the impacts of preterm birth on kidney development.

The Monash University study is identifying new strategies for minimising the consequences of being born preterm, which accounts for around eight per cent of births… Helping preterm babies get the best start

What is a urinary tract infection?
When you hear the phrase “urinary tract infection” or its acronym, UTI, you’re likely to think of a bladder infection and its accompanying symptoms ­– such as a frequent urge to urinate and a burning sensation when you do. This condition, also called cystitis, is fairly common… Urinary tract infections during pregnancy   



Lupus nephritis and pregnancy

Lupus is an archetypical, multisystem disease affecting almost every tissue or organ in the body. Kidney disease is rarely the first manifestation of Lupus; it may come later in the course of the disease and, by then, it is extremely serious and dominates the clinical picture and often leads to renal failure. The disease… Lupus nephritis and pregnancy
