OBJECTIVE To study the isoforms of insulin-like growth factor binding protein-1 (IGFBP-1) in cervical secretion and to evaluate whether their assessment could serve in prediction of cervical ripeness at term. METHODS We measured the concentrations of IGFBP-1 in cervical swab samples of 64 women scheduled for labor induction by amniotomy or cervical ripening with prostaglandin E2 gel. Two immunoenzymometric assays were used: a previously described assay 1, which detects the nonphosphorylated… CONTINUE READING
