Generation of peroxynitrite and apoptosis in placenta of patients with chorioamnionitis: possible implications in placental abruption. (1/292)

The reaction of nitric oxide (NO) and superoxide results in the formation of peroxynitrite, a potent and relatively long-lived oxidant. In infectious diseases, these molecules are not only bactericidal but also toxic to host cells. Chorioamnionitis is often complicated by premature rupture of membranes and can be associated with placental abruption. These diseases are significant causes of premature low-birth-weight deliveries and consequently the morbidity and mortality of neonates. Lipopolysaccharide, bacterial endotoxin, is known to be elevated in the amniotic fluid of patients with chorioamnionitis. Lipopolysaccharide is known to induce the formation of NO and superoxide. We report here that nitrite/nitrate, stable metabolites of NO, were increased in serum from patients with chorioamnionitis. Immunohistochemical studies demonstrated enhanced expression of inducible NO synthase and formation of nitrotyrosine, a footprint of peroxynitrite, in the placentae from patients with chorioamnionitis and also in patients with placental abruption. Furthermore, apoptotic cell death was also increased in the placentae from patients with both diseases. These results suggest that chorioamnionitis and a portion of placental abruption may share a common cascade of placental injury. Nitric oxide and its metabolities may play an important role in this cascade.  (+info)

Prophylactic cefazolin in amnioinfusions administered for meconium-stained amniotic fluid. (2/292)

OBJECTIVE: To determine if amnioinfusion with an antibiotic solution decreased the rate of clinical chorioamnionitis and puerperal endometritis in patients with meconium-stained amniotic fluid. METHODS: Patients in labor at 36 weeks of gestation or greater with singleton pregnancies and meconium-stained amniotic fluid were randomized to receive either cefazolin, 1 g/1,000 mL, of normal saline (n = 90) or normal saline (n = 93) amnioinfusion. Rates of clinically diagnosed chorioamnionitis and endometritis and of suspected and culture-proven neonatal infection were determined. RESULTS: Between the study and control groups, the incidences of clinical chorioamnionitis (7.8% vs. 8.6%), endometritis (2.4% vs. 3.5%), aggregate intrauterine infection (10.0% vs. 11.8%), suspected neonatal infection (17.8% vs. 21.5%), and proven neonatal infection (0.0% vs. 2.2%) were not significantly different. CONCLUSIONS: Prophylactic use of cefazolin in amnioinfusions did not significantly reduce rates of maternal or neonatal infection in patients with meconium-stained amniotic fluid.  (+info)

Interleukin-8 release from human gestational tissue explants: effects of gestation, labor, and chorioamnionitis. (3/292)

Interleukin-8 (IL-8) is a chemotactic cytokine that has been implicated in the process of human parturition, including the processes of cervical ripening and rupture of fetal membranes. In this study, the in vitro release of IL-8 from human amnion, choriodecidua, and placenta tissues obtained before and after spontaneous labor onset both at term and preterm, was assessed. The effect of chorioamnionitis on IL-8 release was also established. All tissue explants examined released IL-8; however, IL-8 release from choriodecidual explants was significantly (p < 0.02) greater than that observed from amnion and placenta. Furthermore, choriodecidual IL-8 release was significantly (p < 0.001) greater from term tissues (850 +/- 134.4 ng/mg DNA, n = 18) than from preterm tissues (458 +/- 68.8 ng/mg DNA, n = 17). Spontaneous onset of labor, irrespective of the eventual mode of delivery, was not associated with any significant changes in IL-8 release from human gestational tissues compared to not-in-labor tissues, both at term and preterm. IL-8 release from gestational tissues was not significantly different in the absence or presence of chorioamnionitis. These data are in contrast to the previously reported stimulatory effects of bacterial endotoxin on IL-8 release from human gestational tissues. The data are consistent, however, with the suggestion that IL-8 release is an early event in chorioamnionitis that precedes the appearance of clinically overt symptoms.  (+info)

Embryo reduction of multifetal pregnancies following assisted reproduction treatment: a modification of the transvaginal ultrasound-guided technique. (4/292)

First-trimester transvaginal embryo reduction is an effective alternative for the management of multifetal pregnancy in assisted reproduction. We have modified the transvaginal technique by performing an intracardiac embryo puncture until asystolia is verified, without the injection of any substances. Any aspiration of embryo tissues or amniotic fluid was avoided. A total of 149 multifetal pregnancies was reduced to twins (n = 134) or singletons (n = 15) at early gestational age (7.8 +/- 0.8 weeks). Eleven cases (7.3%) of miscarriage, two cases (1.3%) of chorioamnionitis, and 17 cases (11.4%) of transient spotting were recorded as postoperative complications. Vanishing of one embryo occurred in four cases (3.0%) of those reduced to twins. The baby take-home rate was 89.5% for twins and 80.0% for singletons. Pregnancy outcome was analysed and compared with a control group of women with non-reduced multiple pregnancies. The birth weight of singleton pregnancies after reduction was lower (2929 +/- 160 versus 3291 +/- 422 g; P < 0.02). These studies show that early transvaginal intracardiac embryo puncture is an effective and safe technique.  (+info)

Chorioamnionitis decreased incidence of respiratory distress syndrome by elevating fetal interleukin-6 serum concentration. (5/292)

Respiratory distress syndrome (RDS) of newborns is one of the most important factors determining neonatal morbidity and mortality. The interleukin-6 (IL-6) titre in cord sera of RDS-free neonates born to mothers with histological chorioamnionitis was significantly higher than that in RDS-complicated neonates without chorioamnionitis. Maternal administration of glucocorticoid suppressed the IL-6 concentrations in the cord sera of fetuses with chorioamnionitis. The fetuses without chorioamnionitis who suffered from RDS even after maternal glucocorticoid administration showed a similar IL-6 titre to that of RDS-affected neonates without chorioamnionitis. Examination of the mechanism by which IL-6 decreased the incidence of fetal RDS revealed that H441-4, a human pulmonary adenocarcinoma cell line, stimulated with recombinant (r)-IL-6 started the synthesis of mRNA and protein of pulmonary surfactant protein (SP)-A. The present study shows that IL-6 elevation in fetuses with chorioamnionitis promotes fetal lung maturation by inducing SP-A synthesis, thereby decreasing the incidence of RDS in the preterm neonates.  (+info)

Placental abnormalities associated with human immunodeficiency virus type 1 infection and perinatal transmission in Bangkok, Thailand. (6/292)

The effects of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) type 1 on the placenta and the role of the placenta in mother-to-child HIV-1 transmission are not well understood. Placentas from 78 HIV-infected and 158 HIV-uninfected women were examined as part of a prospective perinatal HIV transmission study in Bangkok. HIV-infected women were more likely than HIV-uninfected women to have chorioamnionitis (odds ratio [OR], 2.1; P=.03), placental membrane inflammation (PMI; OR, 2. 7; P=.02), and deciduitis (OR, 2.3; P=.03) and less likely to have villitis (OR, 0.3; P=.02). However, among HIV-infected women, fewer women who transmitted infection to their child had chorioamnionitis (relative risk [RR], 0.2; P=.03), funisitis (RR, 0.4; P=.1), or PMI (RR undefined; P=.03). These findings suggest that, in this population, HIV-infected women are at increased risk for placental membrane inflammatory lesions, but that placental inflammatory lesions are not associated with increased perinatal HIV transmission.  (+info)

Intra-amniotic endotoxin: chorioamnionitis precedes lung maturation in preterm lambs. (7/292)

The inflammatory and lung maturational effects of intra-amniotic exposure to endotoxin were assessed in fetal lambs. Five hours to 25 days after intra-amniotic injection of endotoxin, preterm lambs were delivered at 119-125 days gestation. Intra-amniotic endotoxin caused an inflammatory cell infiltration in amnion/chorion at 5 h, which persisted for 25 days. At 5-15 h after endotoxin, amnion/chorion cytokine mRNAs increased [12- to 26-fold for interleukin (IL)-1beta, IL-6, and IL-8 mRNA and 3-fold for tumor necrosis factor-alpha mRNA]. At 1-2 days after endotoxin, lung cytokine mRNAs increased 6- to 49-fold. Endotoxin caused modest changes in peripheral white blood cell counts and no significant cytokine mRNA responses in fetal liver, placenta, or jejunum. Lung maturation, as characterized by increased lung volumes and alveolar saturated phosphatidylcholine, occurred at 7 days and persisted for 25 days after endotoxin. We conclude that exposure to a single dose of intra-amniotic endotoxin causes inflammation and increases in cytokine mRNA in amnion/chorion and the fetal lung before lung maturation, consistent with the hypothesis that proinflammatory cytokines signal lung maturation.  (+info)

Intrauterine infection and spontaneous midgestation abortion: is the spectrum of microorganisms similar to that in preterm labor? (8/292)

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether microorganisms associated with intrauterine infection and preterm labor play a contributing role in midgestation abortion. METHODS: A 4 year retrospective review of spontaneous midgestation abortions for which autopsy and microbiological cultures of placental and fetal tissue were performed was conducted for a tertiary obstetrics hospital, which included a regional referral service for perinatal and fetal pathology. One hundred twenty-nine spontaneously delivered, nonmacerated, midgestation fetuses or stillbirths (of between 16 and 26 weeks' gestation) and placentas were examined and cultured for aerobic and anaerobic bacteria, yeasts, and genital mycoplasmas. RESULTS: Microorganisms were recovered in 85 (66%) cases (57% placentas, 49% fetuses). Among the culture positive cases, 81% had histological chorioamnionitis, 28% fetal pneumonitis, 38% clinical signs of infection, and 62% ruptured membranes at the time of miscarriage. These differed significantly from culture-negative cases (44%, 5%, 13%, and 34%, respectively). Group B streptococcus (GBS) was the most significant pathogen, recovered in 21 cases, 13 as the sole isolate, 94% with chorioamnionitis, and 47% in women with intact membranes. Escherichia coli and Ureaplasma urealyticum (22 and 24 cases, respectively) occurred mostly as mixed infections, with ruptured membranes. GBS, MU urealyticum, and Streptococcus anginosus group were individually associated with chorioamnionitis, Bacteroides/Prevotella and S. anginosus with fetal pneumonitis. The spectrum of microorganisms was similar to that in preterm labor at later gestations; however, GBS appeared to be the most significant pathogen in midgestation miscarriage, especially with intact membranes. CONCLUSIONS: Unsuspected intrauterine infection underlies many spontaneous midgestation abortions. GBS is a key pathogen in this setting.  (+info)

Histological chorioamnionitis (HCA) is an intrauterine inflammatory condition that increases the risk for preterm birth, death, and disability because of persistent systemic and localized inflammation. The immunological mechanisms sustaining this response in the preterm newborn remain unclear. We sought to determine the consequences of HCA exposure on the fetal CD4+ T lymphocyte exometabolome. We cultured naive CD4+ T lymphocytes from HCA-positive and -negative preterm infants matched for gestational age, sex, race, prenatal steroid exposure, and delivery mode. We collected conditioned media samples before and after a 6-h in vitro activation of naive CD4+ T lymphocytes with soluble staphylococcal enterotoxin B and anti-CD28. We analyzed samples by ultraperformance liquid chromatography ion mobility-mass spectrometry. We determined the impact of HCA on the CD4+ T lymphocyte exometabolome and identified potential biomarker metabolites by multivariate statistical analyses. We discovered that: 1) ...
Birth Injury - Fetal Chorioamnionitis, Sepsis and Fetal Distress. This medical-legal illustration compares the anatomy and oxygenation of blood of a normal fetus with that of a fetus with fatal chorioamnionitis (inflammation and infection of uterine and placental tissues), sepsis, and fetal distress. The drawing describes how chorioamnionitis can lead to insufficient oxygenation of blood, along with other subsequent conditions such as meconium stained amniotic fluid and an oversized fetus.

Bacterial infection of the amniotic cavity, termed chorioamnionitis, is a major cause of perinatal mortality and maternal morbidity. Early administration of broad-spectrum antibiotic therapy in the laboring patient with chorioamnionitis has both neonatal and maternal benefits. Less known is the ideal postpartum antibiotic regimen - or if postpartum antibiotics are even required at all - needed to decrease febrile morbidity. Current practice has seen a wide range of practice styles ranging from no treatment to antibiotic prophylaxis for up to 48 hours after delivery.. If antibiotics are prescribed, there is good evidence to support one additional dose of antibiotics as compared to 24 hour dosing to decrease the rate of endometritis. Less clear is whether antibiotics are required at all for the properly treated patient with chorioamnionitis who requires a cesarean delivery. One study comparing continued antibiotics versus no-treatment failed to show a difference in the rate of postpartum ...
Despite extensive research, the etiology of most preterm births remains unknown. There are significant fetal consequences associated with preterm birth, which include necrotizing enterocolitis, fetal respiratory distress and intra-ventricular hemorrhage. Perinatal mortality is about 44%, 11% and 5% when deliveries occur between 25-28 weeks, 29-32 weeks and 33-34 weeks, respectively. While for many years, it was assumed that the cause of the high morbidity associated with prematurity was the birth of a neonate with a restricted adaptive capacity, it has also been suggested that part of the high perinatal morbidity was the consequence of adverse processes affecting the fetus in utero, rather than of prematurity per se. Intra-amniotic inflammation present in utero early in gestation may trigger the cascade of events leading to preterm birth (i.e. rupture of membranes, cervical ripening, uterine contractions) and provide an intrauterine milieu which is unfavorable or even harmful to the ...
Inflammation is the physiological effecter of term parturition and the pathological initiator of labor in both PTB and pPROM. Inflammatory changes in gestational tissues result in the modification of membrane structural integrity, activation of myometrial contraction and cervical ripening that are simultaneous mechanisms responsible for the onset of labor [40]. Moreover, infection-induced inflammation and other risk factors for pPROM and PTB, including behavioral risks (e.g. cigarette smoking, alcohol and drug use), poor nutrition and obesity, can cause a redox imbalance, increasing the release of free radicals and consuming antioxidant defenses [6, 41, 42].. In this study, we demonstrated that amniochorion membranes from pregnancies complicated by pPROM showed higher protein oxidative damage and lower antioxidant capacity than those complicated by PTB. This is consistent with previous reports by Dutta et al. [25], who reported oxidative stress-induced damaged and damaged associated senescence ...
Chorioamnionitis [chor-y-oh-am-nee-oh-NY-tis] is an infection of the placenta and the amniotic fluid. Only a few women get it. But it is a common cause of preterm labor and delivery.
GBS is linked to chorioamnionitis, and incidence of neonatal infection with GBS has decreased significantly in countries that provide intrapartum antibiotic prophylaxis after screening as standard of care. This algorithm is not currently part of clinical practice in Uganda, and its potential benefit to the population is unknown. This study is designed to generate data that could lead to practice changes, especially GBS carrier testing and prophylaxis.. Methods include: histopathology from the placental membrane, umbilical cord and chorionic plate; immunohistochemistry for GBS; and confirmatory PCR for positive cases.. ...

The mechanisms responsible for the onset of labor in women are not completely understood. Growing evidence suggests that bacterial products such as endotoxin could stimulate monocytes or macrophages to produce inflammatory cytokines such as IL-1, TNF, IL-6 and IL-8, which in turn stimulate prostaglandin biosynthesis by amnion, chorion and decidua and result in the onset of labor. Amniotic fluid IL-6 could be a sensitive indicator for prospective diagnosis of acute histologic chorioamnionitis, so amniotic fluid IL-6 is considered as an important cytokine. IL-13 and TIMP-3, recently described, have been known to relate to IL-6. IL-13, a novel T-helper cell lymphokin, has been shown to upregulate IL-6 production in keratinocytes, endothelial cells and mesothelial cells, whereas it downregulates IL-6 production in human monocytes. Tissue inhibitor of metalloproteinase-3(TIMP-3), new type distinct from TIMP-1 and TIMP-2, is known to be stimulated by IL-6. In this study , we examined C3H pregnant mice ...
Dirk Lange, PhD, presents the take home messages on infection/inflammation from the AUA annual meeting in Orlando, FL, including studies pointing to the utility of obtaining rectal swab cultures prior to prostate biopsy to identify patients harboring fluoroquinolone-resistant bacteria and guide antibiotic prophylaxis.
The study will be evaluated according to intention to treat. Power Analysis is based on an estimated 22% rate of chorioamnionitis in PPROM patients. A doubling of this rate to 44% should occur in a total of 142 subjects (71 in each arm). Similarly, the rate of patients remaining undelivered at 1 week is 50%. To achieve a 50% increase in the number of patients achieving one week undelivered is virtually identical (140). This study will have a 1:1 case-control ratio, 80% power, and p of 0.05. Of these 142 subjects, 40 inclusions will be in the Netherlands and 102 in the United States and ...

Results The prevalence of PPHN among the 12 954 extremely preterm infants enrolled was 8.1% (95% CI 7.7% to 8.6%), with the trend increasing annually, and a higher proportion as GA decreased: 18.5% (range, 15.2% to 22.4%) for infants born at 22 weeks compared with 4.4% (range, 3.8% to 5.2%) for those born at 27 weeks. Clinical chorioamnionitis and premature rupture of membranes were associated with PPHN. On multivariate analysis of the data from 5923 infants followed up for 3 years, PPHN was a significant independent risk factor for visual impairment (adjusted OR, 1.42, 95% CI 1.03 to 1.97). ...
THURSDAY, Oct. 5, 2017 (HealthDay News) -- Delivery characteristics of extremely preterm infants can be used to identify those with significantly lower incidence of early-onset sepsis (EOS), according to a study published online Oct. 5 in Pediatrics.. Karen M. Puopolo, M.D., Ph.D., from Childrens Hospital of Philadelphia , and colleagues analyzed data from infants born at 22 to 28 weeks gestation in Neonatal Research Network centers from 2006 to 2014 to determine whether factors evident at birth could be used to identify premature infants at lower risk of EOS (≤72 hours age).. The researchers found that of 15,433 infants, 37 percent met low-risk criteria (delivered via cesarean delivery, with membrane rupture at delivery, and absence of clinical chorioamnionitis). Among infants surviving ,12 hours, EOS incidence was 29 out of 5,640 (0.5 percent) in the low-risk group versus 209 out of 8,422 (2.5 percent) in the comparison group (adjusted relative risk, 0.24). Prolonged antibiotics (five or ...
Results: Compared with genotype GG, the less common CC genotype was associated with increased risk for overall CP (odds ratio [OR], 2.6; 95% confidence interval [CI], 1.5-4.6), quadriparetic CP (OR, 4.1; 95% CI, 1.8-9.3), and hemiparetic CP (OR, 2.7; 95% CI, 1.3-5.7), after controlling for race. The C allele conferred increased risk for CP in both recessive and additive genetic models. In multivariate analysis controlling for race, independent risk factors for CP included CC genotype compared with GG (OR, 2.4; 95% CI, 1.3-4.4), clinical chorioamnionitis (OR, 4.6; 95% CI, 2.1-10.4), maternal age >or= 35 (OR, 2.6; 95% CI, 1.6-4.1), and male sex (OR, 1.6; 95% CI, 1.1-2.4 ...
We demonstrated that maternal viral infection can lead to productive replication in the placenta and a fetal inflammatory response, even though the virus is not detected in the fetus. The experiments described in this work are intended to show that viral infection of the placenta can elicit a fetal inflammatory response, which in turn can cause organ damage and, potentially, downstream developmental deficiencies. Furthermore, we demonstrated that a viral infection of the placenta may sensitize to bacterial infection and promote preterm labor.. Pregnant women are exposed to many infectious agents that are potentially harmful to the fetus. The risk evaluation has been focused on whether there is a maternal viremia or fetal transmission (62). Viral infections that are able to reach the fetus by crossing the placenta might have a detrimental effect on the pregnancy (63, 64). It is well accepted that in those cases infection can lead to embryonic and fetal death, induce miscarriage, or induce major ...
A pregnancy specific sepsis can be chorioamnionitis. This occurs from rupture of membranes early, leading to infection in the amniotic fluids.. With cases of chorioamnionitis, delivering the baby is going to be better for both the child and the mother. Non delivered foetal survival rates are almost non existent.. Inducing a birth is usually done with medication or pessaries in the UK. One thing you can do in the developing world. Putting a catheter into the cervical os: you inflate the balloon to start stimulating the cervix. Also give an oxytocin IV infusion.. We also had session on haemorrhage and eclampsia. I failed to get many notes, but they were awesome! Then I went for a curry and finally got Peshwari chips for the first time!. ...

Study Design: We performed a prospective study to assess the feasibility of transvaginal administration of intraamniotic digoxin the day before D&E. All women between 18 0/7 and 23 5/7 weeks of gestation seeking termination from December 2009 to May 2011 were approached for study participation. Women who declined participation were asked to identify their primary rationale. For women declining study participation, transection of the umbilical cord during D&E was performed to ...
Intra-amniotic infections are associated with an increased risk of preterm delivery, which, in turn, may be associated with neurological sequelae in former preterm infants [80]. Microbial presence in the amniotic fluid may elicit maternal and fetal inflammatory response that are then responsible for neonatal complications. The association between elevated inflammatory cytokines IL-1β and IL-6 in the amniotic fluid and subsequent white matter injury has been noted in preterm infants [81]. Elevated levels of inflammatory cytokines in the cord blood including IL-1β, IL-6 IL-8, and TNF-α have also been shown to correlate with neonatal cerebral lesions as detected by MRI after parturition in human premature infants [82]. Furthermore, clinical evidence shows that elevated inflammatory response in the perinatal period has been demonstrated to correlate with long-term neonatal morbidities including cerebral palsy [83], psychomotor deficits [8], and non-neurological diseases including necrotizing ...
Preterm premature rupture of the membranes (PPROM) is a pregnancy complication. In this condition, the sac (amniotic membrane) surrounding your baby breaks (ruptures) before week 37 of pregnancy. Once the sac breaks, you have an increased risk for infection. You also have a higher chance of having your baby born early.
There were no fewer fetal blood infections nor breathing problems in babies when labor was induced compared with waiting and monitoring, the researchers found. However, inducing labor did lead to a slight reduction in uterine environment infections, a condition known as chorioamnionitis.. To take a closer look at whether there were any benefits of inducing labor, a team of researchers led by Dr. David van der Ham of the Maastricht University Medical Center randomly assigned 536 women whose water broke at 34 to 37 weeks gestation to be induced or simply to be watched and monitored.. Van der Ham and his colleagues found that among babies born late preterm with pre-labor rupture of the membranes -- water breaking before labor started -- the rate of sepsis and breathing problems did not go up if the babies were allowed to deliver on their own without intervention.. We conclude that in pregnancies complicated by [preterm pre-labor rupture of the membranes] between 34 and 37 weeks of gestation that ...
Intaramniotic infection or chorioamnionitis stands for acute infection of chorion and amnion, most frequently caused by ascedent polymicrob bacterial infection. Presence of symptoms such as fever, abdominal pain, abnormal vaginal bleeding, presence of maternal and fetal tachycardia, and maternal laboratory blood tests showing increased inflammatory parameters all together indicate to this condition. Definite affirmation of this dyagnosis is determinated by amniotic fluid and cervical smear microorganism cultivation, and patohystologic changes in fetal membrain and placenta. Due to a wide spectrum of appearing symptoms and a variety of clinical signs and symptoms that are not always immidiately recognised as intraamniac infection, and despite the antibiotic treatment, choriamnionitis often ends in premature birth. The child is more affected by the complications of this condition than the mother. The extent and severity of complications is increasing as the gestation week is smaller and the lower ...
Finally around midnight I got checked again and it was time to push! We sent moms out and into the waiting room and the nurse and midwife got their waterproof gear on (its really so that things are sterile, but Im convinced that its bodily fluid protection is wherein lies its real value). N and I had made a conscious effort all throughout my pregnancy to cut back on our cursing but I couldnt help but hype myself up in my head with a quiet LETS DO THIS SHIT! With each contraction I pushed as long and hard as I could, and I kept doing this, until we realized we had been doing it for three hours. Towards the end of that three hours I had spiked a fever which granted me a diagnosis of chorioamnionitis (most often associated with a prolonged labor, which I guess I was having seeing as we were already on hour 24), and most concerning was that we were starting to see some late decels in baby girls heart rate (decelerations are just slowing of heart rate - early decels are usually due to head ...
