This study showed an increased risk of adverse foetal outcome in infants exposed in utero (p = 0.04) to AED. Maternal outcome in exposed mothers was not statistically significant (p = 0.06).
Objective: To determine the maternal and foetal outcomes of antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) use during pregnancy, in women of Afro-Caribbean descent, seen at the University Hospital of the West Indies (UHWI).

This paper reports on obstetric outcomes of subjects, diagnosed with subclinical hypothyroidism, who were treated with l-thyroxine, and seeks to determine if these outcomes were equivalent to those of euthyroid subjects.
Objective: Restoration of euthyroidism with l-thyroxine reportedly reduces obstetric complications associated with subclinical hypothyroidism (SCH). The objective was to determine if obstetric outcomes of treated subjects were equivalent to euthyroid subjects.
This article identifies the risk of recurrence of cervical
dysplasia in HIV-positive women. Results indicate that
HIV increases the risk of recurrence but once women who are HIV positive maintain their antiretroviral agents and have
good CD4 counts then their risk would be similar to that of HIV-negative
Objective: To determine the rate of recurrence of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) in HIVpositive women evaluated at the University Hospital of the West Indies (UHWI).
