OBJECTIVE Microbial invasion of the amniotic cavity is a major cause of preterm delivery and the diagnosis is dependent on invasive amniocentesis. The objective was to determine whether specific proteins in amniotic and cervical fluids alone, or in combination, could identify bacterial invasion. DESIGN A prospective follow-up study. POPULATION Women with singleton pregnancies presenting with preterm labour between 22 and 33 weeks of gestation (n = 89). SETTING Sahlgrenska University… CONTINUE READING
