Oral Nystatin Prophylaxis to Prevent Systemic Fungal Infection in Very Low Birth Weight Preterm Infants

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...

Time to Delivery of Preterm Birth

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 ...

The Use of Progesterone to Reduce Preterm Birth

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...

Spontaneous Preterm Birth Marker Test

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...

Correlation Between Maternal Vitamin D Level And Preterm Birth

Assessment of correlation between vitamin D level and prevalence of preterm births remains limited. The exact role of vitamin D in preterm birth has not yet been clearly defined ,where som...

Periodontal pathogens in the placenta and membranes in term and preterm birth.

Preterm birth is a common cause of adverse neonatal and childhood outcomes. It is commonly associated with infection of the maternal-fetal interface. The relationship between periodontitis and preterm...

Low maternal serum concentrations of mannose-binding lectin (MBL) are associated with the risk of shorter duration of pregnancy and lower birth weight.

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...

Translation, adaptation and psychometric validation of the preterm birth experience and satisfaction scale (P-BESS) into Spanish.

Preterm labour and birth are two of the most important issues in perinatal care. The birth of a preterm baby is often a stressful and traumatic time for parents. Assessment of satisfaction with matern...

Cervical Pessary After Arrested Preterm Labor: A Randomized Controlled Trial.

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.

Evidence of a gene-environment interaction of NODAL variants and inflammation in preterm birth.

NODAL has been implicated in timing of parturition and immune regulation. We investigated the relationship between NODAL polymorphisms, infection/inflammation, and preterm birth.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

Diseases that exhibit signs and symptoms suggestive of a connective tissue disease that do not fulfill clinical or diagnostic criteria for any one defined disease but overlap with criteria of multiple such diseases. Commonly overlapping diseases include systemic autoimmune connective tissue diseases such as RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS; SYSTEMIC LUPUS ERYTHEMATOSUS; and SYSTEMIC SCLEROSIS.

An infection occurring in PUERPERIUM, the period of 6-8 weeks after giving birth.
