To investigate the association of serum progesterone level and preterm delivery.
This article was published in the following journal.
The central role of inflammatory processes in labour and delivery is now well-recognised. However, the biomolecular, immunological and endocrine mechanisms involved in the labour process, and the clin...
In HIV infection, increased adverse perinatal outcomes reported among HIV-associated pregnancies are not fully understood. Currently, microbial product translocation (MT) from a permeable mucosa is de...
Arsenic is an environmental toxicant. The association of gestational arsenic exposure with adverse pregnant outcomes remains controversial. This study was to investigate the association of serum As le...
Vaginal Progesterone is as Effective as Cervical Cerclage to Prevent Preterm Birth in Women with a Singleton Gestation, Previous Spontaneous Preterm Birth and a Short Cervix: Updated Indirect Comparison Meta-Analysis.
An indirect comparison meta-analysis published in 2013 reported that both vaginal progesterone and cerclage are equally efficacious for preventing preterm birth and adverse perinatal outcomes in women...
To describe the frequency and extent of delivery room resuscitation and evaluate the association of delivery room resuscitation with neonatal outcomes in moderately preterm (MPT) infants.
The administration of vaginal progesterone, in addition to standard tocolysis, will decrease the risk of delivering prematurely and of recurrent preterm labor. We also hypothesize that the...
The purpose of the study is to determine whether a daily dose of 200 mg progesterone administered vaginally from 20-23 to 34 weeks' gestation will reduce the rate of preterm delivery among...
Preterm birth, defined as delivery at less than 37 weeks gestation, complicates approximately 12% of pregnancies in the United States Preterm delivery has been, and remains, the most impo...
Twin pregnancies are at substantial increased risk of preterm delivery. Prophylactic administration of progesterone in singleton pregnancies at risk of preterm delivery has been shown to ...
The aim of our study is to evaluate the effect of use of prophylactic vaginal progesterone on the incidence of severe preterm delivery, defined as delivery before 33+6 weeks in women with ...
A synthetic progestin which is useful for the study of progestin distribution and progestin tissue receptors, as it is not bound by transcortin and binds to progesterone receptors with a higher association constant than progesterone.
Specific proteins found in or on cells of progesterone target tissues that specifically combine with progesterone. The cytosol progesterone-receptor complex then associates with the nucleic acids to initiate protein synthesis. There are two kinds of progesterone receptors, A and B. Both are induced by estrogen and have short half-lives.
Steroidal compounds related to PROGESTERONE, the major mammalian progestational hormone. Progesterone congeners include important progesterone precursors in the biosynthetic pathways, metabolites, derivatives, and synthetic steroids with progestational activities.
Agents that are administered in association with anesthetics to increase effectiveness, improve delivery, or decrease required dosage.
The major progestational steroid that is secreted primarily by the CORPUS LUTEUM and the PLACENTA. Progesterone acts on the UTERUS, the MAMMARY GLANDS and the BRAIN. It is required in EMBRYO IMPLANTATION; PREGNANCY maintenance, and the development of mammary tissue for MILK production. Progesterone, converted from PREGNENOLONE, also serves as an intermediate in the biosynthesis of GONADAL STEROID HORMONES and adrenal CORTICOSTEROIDS.
