Disease relevance of ATAD1

  • Although the results of the Atad device seem to be inferior, the risk of uterine hyperstimulation from the use of the device is probably lower than that of the PGE2 and may therefore be preferable in women with fetuses at high risk of fetal hypoxia [1].

Psychiatry related information on ATAD1

  • Prevalence of alcoholism and drug abuse among female AFDC recipients [2].
  • Transitions on and off AFDC: implications for parenting and children's cognitive development [3].
  • Benefits of the Comprehensive Child Development Program as a function of AFDC receipt and SES [4].
  • The analysis compares single mothers who are recipients of AFDC with single mothers who are not recipients in terms of their depressive symptoms (as measured by the CES-D) and hopelessness (as measured by Pearlin Mastery Scale) [5].
  • The impact of Connecticut's welfare reform program (Jobs First), physical and mental health status, personal resources and household violence on employment was examined 18 months after women were randomized to either the welfare reform or the older AFDC program [6].

High impact information on ATAD1

  • The Atad Ripener Device was removed 12 h after insertion, the cervix assessed again, and labour managed according to obstetrical criteria [7].
  • RESULTS: The Atad Ripener Device caused an increase in the Bishop score in all subgroups with a mean change of 4.6 (from 2.0 prior to induction to 6.6 upon removal of the Atad Ripener Device; P < 0.05) [7].
  • The success rate for vaginal delivery was significantly better in the Atad Ripener Device and PGE2 groups compared with the oxytocin group (77.1 and 70%, respectively, versus 26.7%; P < .01) [8].
  • The Atad Ripener Device may be a superior method for cervical ripening and labor induction in patients with unfavorable cervices [8].
  • Potential cost savings for Medi-Cal, AFDC, food stamps, and WIC programs associated with increasing breast-feeding among low-income Hmong women in California [9].

Biological context of ATAD1

  • Analysis of the data revealed that 31% of clients received documented nutritional counseling, 60.2% of the babies were healthy (88% term and 87% appropriate for gestational age), and documented referrals (i.e. WIC, AFDC, Medicaid, etc.) were made in 32% of the cases [10].
  • Neither the level of AFDC benefits nor the AFDC acceptance rate appear to serve as economic incentives to out-of-wedlock childbearing; nor does the availability of contraception and abortion seem to encourage teenagers to initiate sexual activity [11].

Anatomical context of ATAD1


Associations of ATAD1 with chemical compounds

  • Artificial ripening of the unfavorable cervix was attempted in 48 women using intracervical prostaglandin (PG) E2 gel applied by a cannula and in 70 others by a newly designed double balloon device (Atad Ripener Device) [13].
  • The influence of the concentrations of the sum of proteins and of alpha-acid glycoprotein on the peak-area ratios ATAD/A I.S. and on absolute peak areas was studied [14].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of ATAD1

  • Population-based hospitalization rates were computed and analyzed for AFDC children among 14 small area subdivisions of the State of Washington. Medical-surgical admission rates ranged from 65.3 to 161.7 per 1,000 person-years among the 14 areas [15].
  • 2. Induction of labour was successfully achieved following removal of the Atad Ripener Device. 3. Our caesarean section rate was low compared with rates reported for women with an unfavourable cervix induced by other methods [7].
  • PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: AFDC Medicaid beneficiaries use considerably more ambulatory care and inpatient care than they would if they remained uninsured [16].
  • Although it is generally assumed that fathers are absent from the lives of children being raised on AFDC, evidence from a case-control study in Worcester, Massachusetts, suggests that there is considerable father-child contact [17].
  • The vaginal delivery rate was 87.2% in the pessary group compared to 72.2% in the Atad group and 84.6% in the gel group [1].
