The aim of this study was to compare positive placental alpha-microglobulin-1 (PAMG-1) test rates with clinical significance of pre-term pregnant women, intact membrane with and without uterine contraction. A prospective analytic study was performed including 100 pre-term pregnant women with intact membranes. Patients were classified into two groups, patients with uterine contraction (n = 50) and patients without contraction (n = 50). Conventional standard methods were performed to exclude… 

Comparison of a novel test for placental alpha microglobulin-1 with fetal fibronectin and cervical length measurement for the prediction of imminent spontaneous preterm delivery in patients with threatened preterm labor

PAMG-1 detection by PartoSure is the single best predictor of imminent spontaneous delivery within 7 days compared to fFN and CL, and has the greatest clinical utility in patients with CL between 15 and 35 mm.

Evaluation of the performance of the insulin-like growth factor-binding protein-1/alpha-fetoprotein test in diagnosing ruptured fetal membranes in pregnant women

IGFBP-1/AFP immunoASSay is a rapid immunoassay test for diagnosing ROM with a high sensitivity and specificity and can be used as an alternative method for diagnosis of ROM.

Methods of detection and prevention of preterm labour and the PAMG-1 detection test: a review

The use of PAMG-1 may make it possible to target the women at risk with a shortened cervix on ultrasound those with an imminent preterm delivery and therefore to adapt management, especially the administration of antenatal corticosteroid therapy.

An elevated amniotic fluid prostaglandin F2α concentration is associated with intra-amniotic inflammation/infection, and clinical and histologic chorioamnionitis, as well as impending preterm delivery in patients with preterm labor and intact membranes

The concentration of PGF2α was elevated in the amniotic fluid of 40.2% of patients with preterm labor and intact membranes and is an independent risk factor for intra-amniotic inflammation/infection, impending preterm delivery, chorioamnionitis, and funisitis.
