Sudden infant death syndrome: A proposed discovery

, : Sudden infant death syndrome: A proposed discovery. Medical Hypotheses 49(2): 177-179

Sudden cardiac death is a leading cause of fatality in the industrially developed world. Sudden infant death syndrome, has not hitherto been regarded as the same disease. However, the 55% reduction in the recorded rate of death from sudden infant death syndrome following the removal of stress-related problems caused by babies sleeping on their stomachs and overheating from tight and heavy clothing has, I propose, revealed that the babies may be dying from a similar stress-related cause, which can be prevented.

CA-125 is known as a marker of ovarian carcinoma; it is useful in monitoring response to treatment and it is even said to be a means of detecting ovarian carcinomas. We have studied the serum levels of CA-125 in 260 patients with advanced carcinom...
