  • Objective: This is a systematic review to assess published scientific evidence on preterm birth predictors. Methods: An Internet search for predictors of preterm birth was performed and the evidence level of each method was evaluated. Results: There is strong evidence that preterm birth can be predicted using vaginal sonography to evaluate cervical characteristics, fetal fibronectin in cervicovaginal secretions and interleukin‐6 in amniotic fluid. There is consistent evidence that digital… CONTINUE READING
