Fetal fibronectin in the cervicovaginal fluid of women with threatened preterm labour as a predictor of delivery before 34 weeks' gestation.

Abstract

Fetal fibronectin (fFN) is an extracellular matrix protein found at the junction between fetal and maternal tissue. It has been hypothesized that fFN is released into cervicovaginal fluid prior to the onset of preterm labour and during episodes of threatened preterm labour (TPL). In the present study fFN was present in the cervicovaginal fluid of 31% (11/36… (More)
