The objectives of this study were 1) to evaluate interleukin-8 concentrations in cervical secretions in predicting preterm delivery, microbial invasion of the amniotic cavity and histologic chorioamnionitis in patients with preterm labor and intact membranes and 2) to compare the diagnostic value of interleukin-8 with fetal fibronectin determinations in predicting preterm delivery, microbial invasion of the amniotic cavity and histologic chorioamnionitis in patients with preterm labor and… CONTINUE READING
