We report the discovery of three extrasolar planets that transit their moderately bright (Vmag = 12-13) host stars. WASP-44b is a 0.89-MJup planet in a 2.42-day orbit around a G8V star. WASP-45b is a 1.03 ... [more ▼]

We report the discovery of three extrasolar planets that transit their moderately bright (Vmag = 12-13) host stars. WASP-44b is a 0.89-MJup planet in a 2.42-day orbit around a G8V star. WASP-45b is a 1.03-MJup planet which passes in front of the limb of its K2V host star every 3.13 days. Weak Ca H+K emission seen in the spectra of WASP-45 suggests the star is chromospherically active. WASP-46b is a 2.10-MJup planet in a 1.43-day orbit around a G6V star. Rotational modulation of the light curves of WASP-46 and weak Ca H+K emission in its spectra show the star to be photospherically and chromospherically active. We imposed circular orbits in our analyses as the radial velocity data are consistent with (near-)circular orbits, as could be expected from both empirical and tidal-theory perspectives for such short-period, Jupiter-mass planets. We discuss the impact of fitting for eccentric orbits for these type of planets when not supported by the data. The derived planetary and stellar radii depend on the fitted eccentricity and further studies use these quantities in attempts to understand planet structure, the interdependence of parameters and the relevant physics for extrasolar planets. As such, we recommend exercising caution in fitting the orbits of short period, Jupiter-mass planets with an eccentric orbital model when there is no evidence of non-circularity. [less ▲]

Objectives: This study aims to evaluate the feasibility of performing an anatomy scanned for fetal abnormalities at the time of nuchal translucency (NT) measurement in Vietnamese population Material and methods: In a prospective study, 2500 singleton pregnancies measured fetal NT and scanned structural anatomy in the first trimester; then checked fetal morphology systematically at 18-24 weeks and followed up to their delivery. According to ultrasonographic abnormalities and amniocentesis, we evaluated the detection rate of ultrasound for aneuploidy in the first and second trimester of gestation. Results: The sensitivity and specificity of ultrasound for aneuploidy was 17.2% and 99.7%, respectively. All 13 cases of fetal ultrasonographic anomalies related significantly with an increased NT (≥ 2.4mm) (p < 0.001). 30.8% of these abnormalities that included cystic hygroma, omphalocele and holoprosencephaly were detected at 11-13.6 weeks’ gestation. In the second trimester scanning, 69.2% of major structural anomalies found and the detection rate of central nervous system malformation, abnormal heart, abdominal wall defect, face anomaly and skeletal deformities were 85.7%, 100%, 66.7%, 50% and 75%, alternatively. Conclusion: Scanning of fetal anatomy at the time of NT measuring is useful to detect fetal abnormalities, especially aneuploidy in Vietnamese pregnancies. [less ▲]

Objectives: The aim of this study is to find the risk factors of fetal chromosomal aberrations in order to classify a high risk pregnancy in our prenatal care unit. Material and methods: A prospective study was carried out during one year in our clinic. 523 cases of amniocentesis was followed up and evaluated the relation with abnormal result (fetal aneuploidies) and the risk factors such as advanced maternal age (≥ 35 years old), parity, habitation, positive triple test (≥ 1/250), fetal malformation history and abnormal signs in the first and second trimester scanning. Results: The incidence of fetal aneuploidy was 3.4% (18/523 [95%CI: 2.1-5.4%]) and the trisomy 21 showed the most common in these chromosomal aberrations (67%). The younger women (< 35 years old), nulliparous, positive triple test and abnormal ultrasonographic findings (included increased nuchal translucency [≥ 2.4mm], absent nasal bone in the first trimester scanning and/or echogenic nodule in ventricular) was identified as the risk factors of fetal aneuploidies (OR was 2.3 [95%CI: 0.8-6.7], 4.0 [95%CI: 1.4-13.2], 3.3 [95%CI: 0.3-33.5] and 9.4 [95%CI: 1.1-79.2], respectively). The abnormal ultrasonographic findings found a relation significantly with abnormal chromosomes (p=0.04). Conclusion: Abnormal ultrasonographic findings in the first and second trimester were the important markers for predicting fetal aneuploidy, especially trisomy 21. [less ▲]
