BACKGROUND The role of progesterone levels during human labor is unclear. OBJECTIVE To investigate serum concentrations of progesterone and 5alpha-pregnane-3,20-dione in normal and abnormal deliveries. METHODS Venous and umbilical cord serum samples were collected from 108 parturient women. In a further 49 deliveries, arterial and venous umbilical cord sera were collected separately. The concentrations of progesterone and 5alpha-pregnane-3,20-dione were determined by radioimmunoassay. The… CONTINUE READING
