INTRODUCTION To identify changes in interleukin (IL)-6 levels and its pathway (Jak/stat3) in the human placenta during preterm and term labor, placental tissues were collected from primiparous women who underwent vaginal deliveries or cesarean sections in our hospital. The women were divided into three groups: preterm labor (n = 15), term labor (n = 15), and term not in labor (n = 15). MATERIAL AND METHODS IL-6 levels were detected by ELISA in placental supernatant, and p-STAT3 and SOCS3… CONTINUE READING
