Objective:The association between obesity and spontaneous preterm births (sPTBs) has been shown to be influenced by obesity-attendant comorbidities. Our objective was to better understand the complex relationship of obesity and its attendant comorbidities with sPTBs.Study Design:A retrospective analysis utilizing maternally linked hospital and birth certificate records of 2 049 196 singleton California deliveries from 2007 to 2011. Adjusted relative risks (aRRs) for sPTBs were estimated using… Expand
Adverse perinatal outcomes for obese women are influenced by the presence of comorbid diabetes and hypertensive disorders
TLDR
It is suggested that comorbidities such as diabetes and hypertensive disorders should be considered when relating maternal obesity to adverse perinatal outcomes. Expand

It is suggested that comorbidities such as diabetes and hypertensive disorders should be considered when relating maternal obesity to adverse perinatal outcomes. Expand
Neonatal Morbidity in the Offspring of Obese Women Without Hypertension or Diabetes.
TLDR
In patients who labor, maternal obesity is an independent risk factor for significant neonatal morbidity, even in the absence of hypertensive disorders or diabetes. Expand
Outcomes of Infants with Very Low Birth Weight Associated with Birthplace Difference: A Retrospective Cohort Study of Births in Japan and California.
TLDR
Low rates of severe IVH and mortality for infants with VLBW born in Japan were not seen in infants born in California to mothers with Japanese ethnicity, and differences in systems of regional perinatal care, social environment, and the quality of perinnatal care may partially account for these differences in outcomes.

Cervicovaginal Inflammatory Cytokines, Obesity and Inter-Pregnancy Interval Negatively Affect Pregnancy Duration in Pregnant Women at High-Risk for Recurrent Spontaneous Preterm Birth
TLDR
High BMI, short IPI and high CVF inflammatory cytokines’ levels negatively affect pregnancy duration especially in women with history of recurrent PTB, and early prophylactic CC for women at high-risk of SPTB can modulate local immune disturbance, reduce incidence of SP TB and prolong pregnancy duration.

TLDR
Maternal obesity carries significant risks for the mother and foetus and the risk increases with the degree of obesity and persists after accounting for other confounding demographic factors. Expand

TLDR
Preregnancy obesity is associated with increased risks of a wide range of adverse pregnancy and neonatal outcomes among women without chronic diseases. Expand

TLDR
Increased risks were observed across all gestational ages, and some evidence of heterogeneity of the associations was observed by race-ethnicity and parity. Expand

The aim of the present study was to assess the impact of obesity and gestational weight gain on the risk of subtypes of preterm birth, because little is known about these associations. The studyExpand
Association among Maternal Obesity, Cervical Length, and Preterm Birth
TLDR
Women with a higher BMI group had longer mid‐trimester cervical length, and correspondingly reduced SPTB, however, the decreased risk of SPTB was not associated with cervical length. Expand
Prepregnancy weight and the risk of adverse pregnancy outcomes.
TLDR
Higher maternal weight before pregnancy increases the risk of late fetal death, although it protects against the delivery of a small-for-gestational-age infant. Expand

TLDR
Sensitivity analysis demonstrates unmeasured confounding of the mediator-outcome relationship provides a sufficient explanation for the observed protective effect of obesity on mortality among individuals with CVD. Expand

TLDR
Three serum biomarkers indicative of inflammation to be associated with spontaneous preterm birth among obese women are identified: sVEGFR3, sIL-2RA and sTNFR1. Expand
