Regulatory Cytokine Expression and Preterm Birth: Case-Control Study Nested in a Cohort

Abstract

BACKGROUND Currently known risk factors explain only a small fraction of preterm birth (PTB). Previous PTB is one of the most important predictors. However, this information is not available in primiparous women. Few studies have looked at associations between regulatory cytokine expression (RCE) and PTB and the results are conflicting.
