Assessment of fetal lung maturity by fluorescence polarization in high-risk pregnancies.

Although the validity of amniotic fluid fluorescence polarization (FPOL) has been documented in normal pregnancies, data are lacking on the predictive value of this method in high-risk pregnancies where biochemical maturation of the fetal lung may be altered. In this study, amniotic fluid was obtained from 86 women with pregnancies complicated by insulin… CONTINUE READING
