Premature rupture of membranes (PRM) affects 5 to 15% of pregnancies, leading to prematurity and neonatal infection. PRM can be identified by through various amniotic fluid proteins in vaginal secretions. The aim of this study is to compare two immunochromatographic tests based on the detection of insulin-like growth factor binding protein (IGFBP-1) and alpha-foeto protein (AFP) for one of the two tests in cervico-vaginal secretions. Two tests, Actim(®) Prom and Amnioquick(®) Duo were performed… CONTINUE READING
