AIM Strong evidence implicates chronic intraamniotic inflammation in the etiology of preterm delivery. The purpose of this study was to determine whether amniotic fluid IL-1β, IL-10 and IL-18 concentrations in women undergoing mid-trimester amniocentesis can identify those at risk for preterm labor or preterm rupture of membranes. PATIENTS AND METHODS A case-control study was conducted to compare mid-trimester concentrations of amniotic fluid IL-1β, IL-10 and IL-18 in women delivering at term… CONTINUE READING
