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… Expand
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
TLDR
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. Expand
Methods of detection and prevention of preterm labour and the PAMG-1 detection test: a review
TLDR
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. Expand
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

  • 2016
TLDR
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. Expand
Combination of three-dimensional ultrasound measurement of foetal adrenal gland enlargement and placental alpha microglobulin-1 for the prediction of the timing of delivery within seven days in women with threatened preterm labour and preterm labour

  • 2018
TLDR
The combination of a foetal adrenal gland enlargement and placental alpha microglobulin-1 may be used for the prediction of the timing of delivery within seven days in pregnant women presenting with threatened pre term labour and with preterm labour. Expand

TLDR
There has been considerable interest in means of identifying women at risk of delivering prematurely by clinical symptoms and signs, biochemical markers, and cervical length by digital examination and/or ultrasound scan. Expand

TLDR
Some evidence supports the effectiveness of cervical length as a predictor of preterm delivery in symptomatic women, but evidence for most tests is limited in quality and quantity. Expand

TLDR
A positive Amnisure test™ is present in about one-third nulliparous women at term presenting in labor with intact membranes, and patients with a positive test had a shorter admission-to-delivery interval than those with a negative test. Expand
