Interplay of cytokine polymorphisms and bacterial vaginosis in the etiology of preterm delivery.


Recent findings suggest that the association between inflammation-related genes and preterm delivery may be stronger in the presence of bacterial vaginosis (BV). Tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNFα) and interleukin 1-beta (IL-1β) are pro-inflammatory cytokines capable of inducing preterm labor in non-human primates. In this study the authors tested… (More)
