This study determines the effectiveness of oral nystatin as prophylaxis in order to prevent systemic fungal infection in very low birth weight preterm neonates. 47 participants received or...
Preterm birth (babies being born before 34 weeks pregnancy) occurs in approximately 11% of pregnancies; preterm birth can lead to complications for the baby. When mothers are identified ...
Preterm birth is the most common and costly complication in obstetrics. It complicates up to 11 % of all pregnancies and it is responsible for 70% of sick babies. Recently two studies have...
The prediction of preterm birth is beneficial because it initiates early treatment to minimize risk. It defines a population at risk to provide particular treatment and may lead us to a be...
Preterm birth remains the most common cause of perinatal morbidity and mortality. A short cervi- cal length on transvaginal ultrasonography has been shown to be one of the best predictors ...
Chronic inflammation has been implicated as the underlying mechanism responsible for the pathophysiology of preterm labor. Mannose-bindig lectin (MBL) plays a central role in the innate immune respons...
Preterm birth, defined as birth occurring prior to 37 weeks gestation is a common obstetric complication affecting 8% of pregnancies and is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Infecti...
The objective of this study was to investigate the relationship between preterm birth in a prior pregnancy and preterm birth in a twin pregnancy.
Globally, approximately 10% of infants are born before full-term. Preterm birth exposes the heart to the demands of postnatal cardiovascular function before cardiac development is complete. Our aim wa...
NODAL has been implicated in timing of parturition and immune regulation. We investigated the relationship between NODAL polymorphisms, infection/inflammation, and preterm birth.
Prenatal protozoal infection with TOXOPLASMA gondii which is associated with injury to the developing fetal nervous system. The severity of this condition is related to the stage of pregnancy during which the infection occurs; first trimester infections are associated with a greater degree of neurologic dysfunction. Clinical features include HYDROCEPHALUS; MICROCEPHALY; deafness; cerebral calcifications; SEIZURES; and psychomotor retardation. Signs of a systemic infection may also be present at birth, including fever, rash, and hepatosplenomegaly. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p735)
Official certifications by a physician recording the individual's birth date, place of birth, parentage and other required identifying data which are filed with the local registrar of vital statistics.
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.
An infection occurring in PUERPERIUM, the period of 6-8 weeks after giving birth.
An infection caused by Erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae that is almost wholly restricted to persons who in their occupation handle infected fish, shellfish, poultry, or meat. Three forms of this condition exist: a mild localized form manifested by local swelling and redness of the skin; a diffuse form that might present with fever; and a rare systemic form associated with endocarditis.
