- Effectiveness of non-pharmacological interventions for reducing postpartum fatigue: a systematic review protocolby Jialu Qian on October 26, 2021

It has a considerable negative impact on women's functional and mental status as well as the development of babies. Identifying effective interventions to prevent or reduce postpartum fatigue is meaningful to improve the quality of life and avoid adverse outcomes of this vulnerable population.

- Indoxyl sulfate, a gut microbiome-derived uremic toxin, is associated with psychic anxiety and its functional magnetic resonance imaging-based neurologic signatureby Christopher R Brydges on October 26, 2021
It is unknown whether indoles, metabolites of tryptophan that are derived entirely from bacterial metabolism in the gut, are associated with symptoms of depression and anxiety. Serum samples (baseline, 12 weeks) were drawn from participants (n = 196) randomized to treatment with cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), escitalopram, or duloxetine for major depressive disorder. Baseline indoxyl sulfate abundance was positively correlated with severity of psychic anxiety and total anxiety and with...

The aim of this study is to evaluate the clinical efficacy of a newly developed, therapist-supported, digital...
- A Clinical Study of the Effect of Estradiol Valerate on Sleep Disorders, Negative Emotions, and Quality of Life in Perimenopausal Womenby Jianfu Zhang on October 26, 2021
In this prospective study, we randomly divided 100 patients with perimenopausal syndrome equally into the control group (n = 50) receiving conventional treatment and the study group (n = 50) receiving estradiol valerate. The indicators observed were endometrial thickness, uterine volume, and the levels of LH (luteinizing hormone), FSH (follicle-stimulating hormone), and E2 (estradiol) of the patients before and after treatment. The Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI), Hamilton...
