To investigate the association of serum progesterone level and preterm delivery.
This article was published in the following journal.
The aim was to examine the association between plasma hormone concentrations, cervical length and preterm delivery in twin pregnancies, including the effect of progesterone treatment.
To determine the association between second-trimester serum Down syndrome screening (alpha-fetoprotein [AFP] free beta-human chorionic gonadotropin [b-hCG] unconjugated estriol [uE3]) and preterm birt...
Preterm birth (PTB) is a significant global problem, but few therapeutic options exist. Vaginal progesterone supplementation has been demonstrated to reduce PTB rates in women with a sonographic short...
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...
Cobalt is an essential trace element and has been suggested to be involved in oxidative stress and inflammatory responses. However, researches have paid little attention to the association between ser...
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 ...
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.
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.
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.
