Some Recent Findings
|These papers originally appeared in the Some Recent Findings table, but as that list grew in length have now been shuffled down to this collapsible table.
- At the end of 2009, the total number of Chinese population reached 1,334.74 million, an increase of 6.72 million over that at the end of 2008. The year 2009 saw 16.15 million births, a crude birth rate of 12.13 per thousand, and 9.43 million deaths, or a crude death rate of 7.08 per thousand. The natural growth rate was 5.05 per thousand. The sex ratio at birth was 119.45.

Maternal and congenital syphilis
The following information is from a recent study of maternal and congenital syphilis in Shanghai, China, 2002 to 2006. That has identified a resurgence of congenital syphilis, especially in the migrating population and other populations with a lower socioeconomic status.
- A total of 535,537 pregnant women were included in the analysis.
- 1471 maternal syphilis cases (298.7 per 100 000 live births) identified.
- 334 congenital syphilis cases (62.4 per 100,000 live births) identified.
- Both maternal and congenital syphilis rates increased from 2002 until 2005, with a slight decrease in 2006.
- The rate of maternal syphilis was:
- 156.2 per 100,000 live births in Shanghai residents.
- 371.7 per 100,000 live births in the migrating population (p<0.001).
- The compliance to treatment for maternal syphilis was poorer in women with a lower level of education.
- The rate of congenital syphilis in infants born to mothers with incomplete treatment (50.8%) was much higher than in infants born to mothers with complete treatment (12.5%).
- complete treatment group - rates of fetal death (5.5%), neonatal death (0.56%), and major birth defects (0.46%)
- incomplete treatment group - rates of fetal death (30.4%), neonatal death (11.0%), and major birth defects (3.8%)
- Infant outcome affected by initial maternal RPR antibody level and time of treatment
- much better outcomes in mothers with low antibody levels and earlier treatment.

- "Tong learned from famous European embryologists when studying in Belgium, published several papers after careful observation and researches, which exerted great effects on the biological field of Europe at that time. He made systematic studies of sea squirts and amphibiology, especially the growth of fish ovum. He put forth the idiographic idea that fish ovum does not have the equal growth ability in the budding period. He also made breakthroughs in the biological study and researches, found new ways to control fish's hereditary variation." (Ministry of Culture, P.R.China)
