Investigators have shown the presence of elevated proinflammatory cytokines in amniotic fluid in patients in preterm labor.However, there is limited and mostly negative evidence that the e...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the test characteristics of a rapid intrapartum real- time polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) compared to the intrapartum GBS culture as the standa...
Preterm labor is the first cause of hospitalization during the pregnancy, and at the origin of more than 60 000 births before 37 weeks of amenorrhea every year in France. It is however dif...
Preterm birth is a common problem in obstetric care,with estimates ranging from 5% in several European countries to 18% in some African countries, Preterm labor defined as delivery before ...
The primary objective of the study is to assess the incidence and severity of the periodontal infection of patients with preterm labor. The secondary objective of the study is to analyze ...
To assess the effectiveness of cervical pessary in reducing the rate of preterm birth in women at high risk for preterm birth who did not deliver after an episode of threatened preterm labor.
Prediction of spontaneous preterm delivery in women presenting with premature labor: a comparison of placenta alpha microglobulin-1, phosphorylated insulin-like growth factor binding protein-1, and cervical length.
Placental alpha microglobulin-1 (PAMG-1) and phosphorylated insulin-like growth factor-binding protein-1 (phIGFBP-1) have been studied in patients at risk for preterm birth with signs and symptoms of ...
The rate of cesareans has increased worldwide. Therefore, an increasing number of women has to decide how to deliver in a subsequent pregnancy. Individualized information on risks and success chanc...
Despite a growing association between inflammation and preterm labor, the underlying mechanisms explaining the development of preterm labor after infection are still poorly understood. Here, we use RN...
Spontaneous preterm birth is a leading cause of perinatal morbidity and mortality; however, accurate identification of women who will deliver prematurely after the onset of uterine contractions is sti...
A mass spectrometry technique using two (MS/MS) or more mass analyzers. With two in tandem, the precursor ions are mass-selected by a first mass analyzer, and focused into a collision region where they are then fragmented into product ions which are then characterized by a second mass analyzer. A variety of techniques are used to separate the compounds, ionize them, and introduce them to the first mass analyzer. For example, for in GC-MS/MS, GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY-MASS SPECTROMETRY is involved in separating relatively small compounds by GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY prior to injecting them into an ionization chamber for the mass selection.
Spontaneous tearing of the membranes surrounding the FETUS any time before the onset of OBSTETRIC LABOR. Preterm PROM is membrane rupture before 37 weeks of GESTATION.
A parameter usually used in PRENATAL ULTRASONOGRAPHY to measure the length of the uterine neck (CERVIX UTERI). Cervical length or its shortening is used to identify and prevent early cervical opening and PRETERM BIRTH.
Trained lay women who provide emotional support during obstetric labor and the postpartum period for mothers and their partners.
The beginning of true OBSTETRIC LABOR which is characterized by the cyclic uterine contractions of increasing frequency, duration, and strength causing CERVICAL DILATATION to begin (LABOR STAGE, FIRST ).
