Chorioamnionitis: INFLAMMATION of the placental membranes (CHORION; AMNION) and connected tissues such as fetal BLOOD VESSELS and UMBILICAL CORD. It is often associated with intrauterine ascending infections during PREGNANCY.Fetal Membranes, Premature Rupture: Spontaneous tearing of the membranes surrounding the FETUS any time before the onset of OBSTETRIC LABOR. Preterm PROM is membrane rupture before 37 weeks of GESTATION.Amniotic Fluid: A clear, yellowish liquid that envelopes the FETUS inside the sac of AMNION. In the first trimester, it is likely a transudate of maternal or fetal plasma. In the second trimester, amniotic fluid derives primarily from fetal lung and kidney. Cells or substances in this fluid can be removed for prenatal diagnostic tests (AMNIOCENTESIS).Pregnancy: The status during which female mammals carry their developing young (EMBRYOS or FETUSES) in utero before birth, beginning from FERTILIZATION to BIRTH.Obstetric Labor, Premature: Onset of OBSTETRIC LABOR before term (TERM BIRTH) but usually after the FETUS has become viable. In humans, it occurs sometime during the 29th through 38th week of PREGNANCY. TOCOLYSIS inhibits premature labor and can prevent the BIRTH of premature infants (INFANT, PREMATURE).Amnion: The innermost membranous sac that surrounds and protects the developing embryo which is bathed in the AMNIOTIC FLUID. Amnion cells are secretory EPITHELIAL CELLS and contribute to the amniotic fluid.Extraembryonic Membranes: The thin layers of tissue that surround the developing embryo. There are four extra-embryonic membranes commonly found in VERTEBRATES, such as REPTILES; BIRDS; and MAMMALS. They are the YOLK SAC, the ALLANTOIS, the AMNION, and the CHORION. These membranes provide protection and means to transport nutrients and wastes.Chorion: The outermost extra-embryonic membrane surrounding the developing embryo. In REPTILES and BIRDS, it adheres to the shell and allows exchange of gases between the egg and its environment. In MAMMALS, the chorion evolves into the fetal contribution of the PLACENTA.Ureaplasma Infections: Infections with bacteria of the genus UREAPLASMA.Premature Birth: CHILDBIRTH before 37 weeks of PREGNANCY (259 days from the first day of the mother's last menstrual period, or 245 days after FERTILIZATION).Gestational Age: The age of the conceptus, beginning from the time of FERTILIZATION. In clinical obstetrics, the gestational age is often estimated as the time from the last day of the last MENSTRUATION which is about 2 weeks before OVULATION and fertilization.Placenta: A highly vascularized mammalian fetal-maternal organ and major site of transport of oxygen, nutrients, and fetal waste products. It includes a fetal portion (CHORIONIC VILLI) derived from TROPHOBLASTS and a maternal portion (DECIDUA) derived from the uterine ENDOMETRIUM. The placenta produces an array of steroid, protein and peptide hormones (PLACENTAL HORMONES).Infant, Premature: A human infant born before 37 weeks of GESTATION.Pregnancy Complications, Infectious: The co-occurrence of pregnancy and an INFECTION. The infection may precede or follow FERTILIZATION.Infant, Newborn: An infant during the first month after birth.Ureaplasma: A genus of gram-negative, nonmotile bacteria which are common parasitic inhabitants of the urogenital tracts of humans, cattle, dogs, and monkeys.Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia: A chronic lung disease developed after OXYGEN INHALATION THERAPY or mechanical ventilation (VENTILATION, MECHANICAL) usually occurring in certain premature infants (INFANT, PREMATURE) or newborn infants with respiratory distress syndrome (RESPIRATORY DISTRESS SYNDROME, NEWBORN). Histologically, it is characterized by the unusual abnormalities of the bronchioles, such as METAPLASIA, decrease in alveolar number, and formation of CYSTS.Labor, Obstetric: The repetitive uterine contraction during childbirth which is associated with the progressive dilation of the uterine cervix (CERVIX UTERI). Successful labor results in the expulsion of the FETUS and PLACENTA. Obstetric labor can be spontaneous or induced (LABOR, INDUCED).Leukemoid Reaction: A peripheral blood picture resembling that of leukemia or indistinguishable from it on the basis of morphologic appearance alone. (Dorland, 27th ed)Abortion, Septic: Any type of abortion, induced or spontaneous, that is associated with infection of the UTERUS and its appendages. It is characterized by FEVER, uterine tenderness, and foul discharge.Adrenergic beta-3 Receptor Agonists: Compounds that bind to and activate ADRENERGIC BETA-3 RECEPTORS.Term Birth: CHILDBIRTH at the end of a normal duration of PREGNANCY, between 37 to 40 weeks of gestation or about 280 days from the first day of the mother's last menstrual period.Sheep, Domestic: A species of sheep, Ovis aries, descended from Near Eastern wild forms, especially mouflon.Infant, Premature, DiseasesHistocompatibility, Maternal-Fetal: The degree of antigenic similarity between tissues of the mother and those of the FETUS. Maternal-fetal histocompatibility can determine the acceptance and health of the fetus.Fetus: The unborn young of a viviparous mammal, in the postembryonic period, after the major structures have been outlined. In humans, the unborn young from the end of the eighth week after CONCEPTION until BIRTH, as distinguished from the earlier EMBRYO, MAMMALIAN.Umbilical Cord: The flexible rope-like structure that connects a developing FETUS to the PLACENTA in mammals. The cord contains blood vessels which carry oxygen and nutrients from the mother to the fetus and waste products away from the fetus.Respiratory Distress Syndrome, Newborn: A condition of the newborn marked by DYSPNEA with CYANOSIS, heralded by such prodromal signs as dilatation of the alae nasi, expiratory grunt, and retraction of the suprasternal notch or costal margins, mostly frequently occurring in premature infants, children of diabetic mothers, and infants delivered by cesarean section, and sometimes with no apparent predisposing cause.Amniocentesis: Percutaneous transabdominal puncture of the uterus during pregnancy to obtain amniotic fluid. It is commonly used for fetal karyotype determination in order to diagnose abnormal fetal conditions.Abruptio Placentae: Premature separation of the normally implanted PLACENTA from the UTERUS. Signs of varying degree of severity include UTERINE BLEEDING, uterine MUSCLE HYPERTONIA, and FETAL DISTRESS or FETAL DEATH.Endometritis: Inflammation of the ENDOMETRIUM, usually caused by intrauterine infections. Endometritis is the most common cause of postpartum fever.Sheep: Any of the ruminant mammals with curved horns in the genus Ovis, family Bovidae. They possess lachrymal grooves and interdigital glands, which are absent in GOATS.Fetal Distress: A nonreassuring fetal status (NRFS) indicating that the FETUS is compromised (American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists 1988). It can be identified by sub-optimal values in FETAL HEART RATE; oxygenation of FETAL BLOOD; and other parameters.Fetal Death: Death of the developing young in utero. BIRTH of a dead FETUS is STILLBIRTH.Delivery, Obstetric: Delivery of the FETUS and PLACENTA under the care of an obstetrician or a health worker. Obstetric deliveries may involve physical, psychological, medical, or surgical interventions.Betamethasone: A glucocorticoid given orally, parenterally, by local injection, by inhalation, or applied topically in the management of various disorders in which corticosteroids are indicated. Its lack of mineralocorticoid properties makes betamethasone particularly suitable for treating cerebral edema and congenital adrenal hyperplasia. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p724)Meconium: The thick green-to-black mucilaginous material found in the intestines of a full-term fetus. It consists of secretions of the INTESTINAL GLANDS; BILE PIGMENTS; FATTY ACIDS; AMNIOTIC FLUID; and intrauterine debris. It constitutes the first stools passed by a newborn.Fetal Organ Maturity: Functional competence of specific organs or body systems of the FETUS in utero.Placenta Diseases: Pathological processes or abnormal functions of the PLACENTA.Interleukin-1alpha: An interleukin-1 subtype that occurs as a membrane-bound pro-protein form that is cleaved by proteases to form a secreted mature form. Unlike INTERLEUKIN-1BETA both membrane-bound and secreted forms of interleukin-1alpha are biologically active.Chemokine CXCL10: A CXC chemokine that is induced by GAMMA-INTERFERON and is chemotactic for MONOCYTES and T-LYMPHOCYTES.

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 ...

Your provider will ask about your past health. He or she will give you a physical exam. He or she may be able to diagnose chorioamnionitis just by your symptoms. You may also need a lab test to check for infection.. Your healthcare provider may suggest a test called amniocentesis, although this test is not routinely done for chorioamnionitis. During this test, your healthcare provider uses a needle to take a small amount of amniotic fluid for testing.. ...
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 ...
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 ...
I am new to posting on the forum, but I have loved reading the threads and all of the great advice on here since before my son was born. Now its my turn - I could use some advice. My son was born on June 26th, so he is about three-and-a-half weeks old. He was born via c-section, after 26 hours of labor during which I only dilated 5 cm, and during which I developed an infection (Chorioamnionitis) and a fever. My son was taken to the NICU right after birth, because they were worried that he

Ive been going to doctor after doctor trying to figure out why my SED Rate is elevated. My SED Rate was first tested in October of 06 and it was 27; then again in December and it was 32. Now just a few weeks ago, it came back 46. Ive been tested for everything. But Im heading in the right direction. I know that the SED Rate is a marker for infection/inflammation and mine is not infection. My WBC is absolutely normal. My PCP doesnt know what more to do with me. I asked him to send me to a rheumatologist and that is in the works. But I just feel like that is going to be another dead end as well. Anybody out there know much about SED Rates ...
Objective.

Twenty-seven maternal serum proteins were assayed by a multiple immunoassay. Main outcome measures. The maternal serum inflammatory response was evaluated according to the presence of MIAC. Data were stratified by gestational age. Results. There were few differences in the maternal serum protein levels when MIAC was present in both preterm labor and preterm prelabor ...
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.

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.
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 ...

The incidences of placental diseases were 2.0% (95% CI, 0.9‐3.1%) for pre‐eclampsia, 3.3% (95% CI, 0‐7.2%) for placental abruption, 0.5% (95% CI, .2‐.9%) for placenta previa and 0.3% (95% CI, 0‐0.5%) for chorioamnionitis," the authors wrote. Patients with IBD were more likely to experience preterm prelabor rupture of membranes (OR 12.10; 95% CI, 2.15‐67.98), but not early pregnancy loss (OR 1.63; 95% CI .49‐5.43 ...
OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to determine the profiles of maternal plasma soluble adhesion molecules in patients with preeclampsia, small-for-gestational-age (SGA) fetuses, acute pyelonephritis, preterm labor with intact membranes (PTL), preterm prelabor rupture of the membranes (preterm PROM), and fetal death. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A cross-sectional study was conducted to determine maternal plasma concentrations of sE-selectin, sL-selectin, and sP-selectin as well as sICAM-1, sVCAM-1, and sPECAM-1 in patients with 1) an uncomplicated pregnancy (control, n = 100); 2) preeclampsia (n = 94); 3) SGA fetuses (in women without preeclampsia/hypertension, n = 45); 4) acute pyelonephritis (n = 25); 5) PTL (n = 53); 6) preterm PROM (n = 24); and 7) fetal death (n = 34 ...
A newborn baby, particularly a small or preterm baby, is at risk of suffering a neurological injury if he or she becomes infected. The mother may be carrying Group B Strep bacteria, which can be passed on to the baby as the baby is delivered. As well, infection can occur during labour affecting the placenta (chorioamnionitis) or the umbilical cord (vasculitis or funisitis). These conditions may have an impact on the health of the newborn.. ...
Findings 21% of women were between 35-40 years. 10% of patients had BMI , 35. Majority of patients were white British (56%) followed by Asian (25%) background. Medical problems identified were Prexisting diabetes/developed during pregnancy (6%) and asthma (9%).. 21% mothers had history of smoking. 40% of patients presented with reduced fetal movements. Most of the babies weighed between 3.1-4.0 Kg and abnormalities were identified in 10% after birth. Results from the placental histology revealed mild to moderate chorioamnionitis (13%) followed by infarction (7%) and thrombus/fibrin deposits (7%). Patients who agreed to have karyotyping, results revealed normal in 13% of cases but failed in 10%.. ...
In the present study, we report that inhibition of PDE4s by rolipram in rabbit pups exposed to chorioamnionitis preserved antenatal and postnatal alveolarization, without modifying the inflammatory response. However, we observed marked intrauterine growth retardation and a very high incidence of stillbirth in animals treated with rolipram, results not yet reported in this model. Rolipram is the prototypical PDE4 selective inhibitor. PDEA4 enzyme is the main cAMP-metabolizing enzyme in immune and inflammatory cells, airway smooth muscle, and pulmonary nerves; its inhibition suppresses the recruitment and activation of several inflammatory cells (neutrophils, CD8 T cells, and macrophages) known to have a crucial role in the pathophysiological processes of bronchopulmonary dysplasia (Sanz et al., 2005; Hayes et al., 2010). In this context, we chose to test this new treatment in a previously described model of antenatal infection with subsequent impaired alveolarization in the rabbit (Gras-Le Guen ...
BACKGROUND While the human fetal immune system defaults to a program of tolerance, there is a concurrent need for protective immunity to meet the antigenic challenges encountered after birth. Activation of T cells in utero is associated with the fetal inflammatory response, with broad implications for the health of the fetus and of the pregnancy. However, the characteristics of the fetal effector T cells that contribute to this process are largely unknown.METHODS We analyzed primary human fetal lymphoid and mucosal tissues and performed phenotypic, functional, and transcriptional analysis to identify T cells with proinflammatory potential. The frequency and function of fetal-specific effector T cells was assessed in the cord blood of infants with localized and systemic inflammatory pathologies and compared with that of healthy term controls.RESULTS We identified a transcriptionally distinct population of CD4+ T cells characterized by expression of the transcription factor promyelocytic leukemia ...

A propensity score model was created to evaluate the association between magnesium administration (independent variable) and maternal fever (dependent variable). After a univariate analysis to identify factors associated with receiving magnesium, the propensity score model was created using variables significantly associated with receiving treatment. Although chorioamnionitis and neuraxial analgesia were not significantly associated with magnesium use, they were included in the model to ensure balance in the subjects selected. Logistic regression was used to create a propensity score for each subject. Variables included in the model were white race, diagnosis of preeclampsia, duration of labor greater than 10 h (median labor time), preterm birth, spontaneous rupture of membranes, diagnosis of chorioamnionitis, group B streptococcus-positive status, use of neuraxial labor analgesia, antibiotic administration, systemic opioid administration, acetaminophen administration, cesarean delivery, ...
Accumulating evidence supports the concept of increased thrombin generation, placental vascular lesions, and inflammation as crucial points in the development of the great obstetrical syndromes [preeclampsia, intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR), preterm labor (PTL), preterm prelabor rupture of membranes (PROM), fetal demise and recurrent abortions]. In light of this, the role of heparins for primary or secondary prevention of these syndromes is becoming more and more apparent, mainly due to the antithrombotic and anti-inflammatory effects of heparins. There is agreement regarding the use of heparin in the prevention of gestational complications in patients with antiphospholipid syndrome, while its use for other obstetrical complications is under debate. In the present review we will describe the physiologic role of heparins on coagulation and inflammation and we will discuss current evidence regarding the use of heparins for the prevention/treatment of obstetrical syndromes ...
About 25 percent of pregnant women carry GBS in their rectum or vagina. In the pregnant mother, GBS infection may cause chorioamnionitis (a severe infection of the placental tissues) and postpartum (after birth) infection. Urinary tract infections caused by GBS can lead to preterm labor and birth.. Newborns can contract GBS during pregnancy, or from the mothers genital tract during labor and delivery. GBS is the most common cause of life-threatening infections in newborns, including pneumonia and meningitis. If a pregnant woman who is a group B strep carrier does not get antibiotics at the time of delivery, her baby has a 1 in 200 chance of developing GBS disease. Nearly 75 percent of the cases of GBS disease among newborns occur in the first week of life, called early-onset disease. Premature babies are more susceptible to GBS infection than full-term babies.. Although it is very rare, GBS infection may also develop in babies one week to several months after birth, called late-onset disease. ...

OBJECTIVE The fetal inflammatory response syndrome involving proinflammatory cytokines such as interleukin-6 (IL-6) has been associated with cystic periventricular leukomalacia (cPVL). We evaluated whether the development of cPVL is associated with the IL-6 G(-174)C polymorphism. METHODS 52 children with cPVL were compared to 46 preterm and 395 term controls using retrospective cohort analysis. IL-6 genotyping was performed using an allele specific polymerase chain reaction technique. RESULTS IL-6 G(-174)C polymorphisms did not differ between groups, but an association between mental retardation and the IL-6 C/C (78%) and G/C (43%) genotypes compared to the G/G (25%) genotype was found (p = 0.003 and 0.043, respectively; RR 3.11 (95% CI 1.54 to 6.29) and 1.79 (95% CI 1.10 to 2.92), respectively). CONCLUSIONS The IL-6 (-174) C/C and G/C genotypes were associated with mental retardation in cPVL and seem to modify the severity of perinatal brain injury.
Preterm Labour (PTL) and Preterm Premature Rupture of Membranes (PPROM), both defined as occurring spontaneously before 37 completed weeks of pregnancy, have long been recognized as the major contributor to perinatal mortality and morbidity. The outcome for the baby deteriorates proportionately the earlier the incident occurs. It is estimated that spontaneous preterm birth is responsible for 21.8% of perinatal deaths or 6346 babies per year in South Africa. Preterm birth is less common in first world countries (±12% of deliveries) but in spite of intensive research the figures continue to increase. A disproportionate amount of the costs incurred in managing neonates are caused by preterm delivery. Approximately 30% of preterm deliveries are indicated - the most common reasons being pre-eclampsia, fetal distress, intra-uterine growth restriction and obstetric haemorrhage. This category continues to increase because of the increased in multiple births from assisted reproductive treatment, changes ...

Objective: RANTES (regulated on activation, normal T cell expressed and secreted), a potent and versatile chemokine, is capable of attracting monocytes, lymphocytes, basophils, and eosinophils. This cytokine has been implicated in the regulation of the inflammatory response and in the recruitment of macrophages to the implantation site in early pregnancy. RANTES messenger ribonucleic acid and protein have been detected in fetal tissue and first-trimester trophoblast in response to bacterial endotoxin. The purpose of this study was to determine whether intrauterine infection, parturition (preterm and term), and gestational age affect the amniotic fluid concentrations of RANTES in human pregnancy. Study Design: A cross-sectional study was designed to examine the relationship between labor, microbial invasion of the amniotic cavity, gestational age, and RANTES expression in amniotic fluid. Amniotic fluid was obtained from 214 women in the following groups: (1) midtrimester (n = 22), (2) preterm ...
Neonates are at high risk for sepsis when delivered prematurely by a mother with PROM, and sepsis is the main cause for morbidity and mortality among neonates. The incidence of PROM is 8% to 10% of all pregnancies, and of those, 2% to 4% are associated with intrauterine infection, which places these neonates at risk of sepsis [12]. The incidence of neonatal infection is 1% to 2.6% in infants born from mothers with PROM [13]. Mothers who received antibiotic therapy have a lower risk of transmitting the infection to their newborn babies (4.4%) compared to mothers who have not received antibiotic therapy for PROM (11%) [12]. In our study, we included all neonates who were born of mothers with a history of PROM irrespective of antibiotic intake, and blood culture positivity was detected in 3.2% of the cases. Shah et al. reported that 46% of the neonates who have sepsis were born from a mother with PROM, and another study concluded that PROM is responsible for almost one-third of neonates who develop ...
From a medical perspective, this term refers to modalities to induce fetal demise (1). Feticide is most commonly used for selective termination of higher order gestations to twins or singletons. It is also used by some providers before medical and surgical abortion in the second and third trimesters to avoid signs of life at induction or in the belief that it makes the procedure easier and safer. Several methods have been described including intra-cardiac injection of potassium chloride, intra-amniotic injection of digoxin, and transection of the umbilical cord (2). Older methods of medical abortion employed instillation of hyperosmolar solutions such as urea, which also variably induced fetal demise. ...

Neonatal sepsis is a systemic infection occurring in infants within 28 days of life and is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in newborns [1]. According to the international pediatric consensus conference of 2001, neonatal sepsis was defined as systemic inflammatory response syndrome in the presence of or as a result of suspected or proven infection with or without accompanying bacteremia, documented by a positive blood culture in the first 28 days of life [2].. Sepsis encompasses various systemic infections of the new born such as: septicemia, meningitis, pneumonia, arthritis, osteomyelitis and urinary tract infections [3]. Neonatal sepsis is caused by both gram-positive and gram negative bacterias [4, 5].. Neonatal sepsis is classified into two major categories based on the time of onset: early-onset neonatal sepsis (EONS) and late onset neonatal sepsis (LONS). Early-onset neonatal sepsis appears within the first seven days of life and most cases appear within 24 h of birth. While late ...
Mullerian duct anomalies (MDAs) are congenital defects of the female genital tract that arise from abnormal embryological development of the Mullerian ducts. Unicornuate uterus with or without rudimentary horn is developmental anomaly which occurs due to abnormal or failed development of one of the paired mullerian duct or fusion of the ducts. Women with unicornuate uterus have increased incidence of obstetric complications like spontaneous abortions, preterm delivery and intrauterine foetal demise and gynaecological complications like infertility, endometriosis and dysmenorrhoea. A 25 years old, primigravida was admitted at 38 weeks 3 days gestational age with complaints of leaking per vaginum. She was induced with PGE2 gel under antibiotic coverage to prevent chorioamnionitis. She underwent emergency caesarean section for failure to progress and intra-operatively she was incidentally found to have unicornuate uterus with contralateral fallopian tube directly getting attached to the ovary. The ...

Objectives: To investigate the developmental contribution of prematurity, chorioamnionitis and antenatal corticosteroids (ANS) on the maturation of neonatal microbial pathogen recognition responses. Methods: Using standardized protocols, we assayed multiple inflammatory cytokine responses (IL-1β, IL-6, TNF-α and IL-12/23p40) to three prototypic Toll-like receptor (TLR) agonists, i.e. TLR4 (lipopolysaccharide), TLR5 (flagellin) and TLR7/8 (R848), and to the non-TLR retinoic acid-inducible gene I (RIG-I)-like receptor agonist, in cord blood mononuclear cells from neonates born before 33 weeks of gestation ...
About 25 percent of pregnant women carry GBS in their rectum or vagina. In the pregnant mother, GBS infection may cause chorioamnionitis (a severe infection of the placental tissues) and postpartum (after birth) infection. Urinary tract infections caused by GBS can lead to preterm labor and birth.. Newborns can contract GBS during pregnancy, or from the mothers genital tract during labor and delivery. GBS is the most common cause of life-threatening infections in newborns, including pneumonia and meningitis. If a pregnant woman who is a group B strep carrier does not get antibiotics at the time of delivery, her baby has a 1 in 200 chance of developing GBS disease. Nearly 75 percent of the cases of GBS disease among newborns occur in the first week of life, called early-onset disease. Premature babies are more susceptible to GBS infection than full-term babies.. Although it is very rare, GBS infection may also develop in babies one week to several months after birth, called late-onset disease. ...
GBS colonization usually does not cause problems in healthy women, nevertheless during pregnancy it can sometimes cause serious illness for the mother and the newborn. GBS is the leading cause of bacterial neonatal infection in the baby during gestation and after delivery with significant mortality rates in premature infants. GBS infections in the mother can cause chorioamnionitis (a severe infection of the placental tissues) infrequently and postpartum infections (after birth). GBS urinary tract infections (UTI) may induce labor and cause premature delivery.[4] In the western world, GBS (in the absence of effective prevention measures) is the major cause of several bacterial infections of the newborn neonatal infection septicemia, pneumonia, and meningitis, which can lead to death or long-term sequelae.[4]. GBS neonatal infection typically originates in the lower reproductive tract of infected mothers. GBS infections in newborns are separated into two clinical syndromes, early-onset disease ...
To establish levels of mediators of inflammation in cord blood and postnatal serum from extremely low gestational age newborns (ELGANs, | or =28 weeks), we measured sixteen markers of inflammation by recycling immunoaffinity chromatography in 15 ELGANs who had serum sampled at days 2-5. Median levels of IL-1, IL-6, IL-8, IL-11, IL-13, TNF-alpha, G-CSF, M-CSF, GM-CSF, MIP-1alpha, and RANTES were considerably higher than published values of these inflammatory mediators from term newborns. In three of eight ELGANS who had serial measurements taken, levels of IL-1, IL-6, IL-8, IL-11, TNF-alpha, G-CSF, and MIP-1alpha declined from initially very high levels to reach an apparent baseline towards the end of the first postnatal week. In these same three infants, GM-CSF and TGF-beta1 levels increased continuously during the first week. In the other five ELGANs, no consistent changes were observed. We speculate, that in some ELGANs, a fetal systemic inflammatory response is characterized by an antenatal wave of

Decided to start a new comment because that one was getting ridiculous long. Thought you might like to hear about a nice upright birth I attended an hour and a half ago. Second baby, spontaneous labor at 40 weeks 4 days, no augmentation, no IV, no AROM, just labor. Mama did a lot of laboring in bed because she was tired, but at the very end of labor, she got up. She had been grunting a bit with contractions, but not really pushing, and she thought she needed to pee. We went to the bathroom, but she wasnt able to get comfortable and wasnt able to go. She hopped up and down from the toilet several times, and then squatted on the floor holding on to the sink for a bit. Finally, she said "forget it" and we headed back into the labor room. At this point, she stopped at the end of the bed and squatted down on the floor holding on to the end of the bed. This felt good to her, so we spread some pads on the floor, and over the next few contractions she would go from kneeling to squatting, to kneeling ...

Preterm labor usually begins shortly after pPROM occurs. Sometimes, when a slow leak is present and infection has not developed, contractions may not start for a few days or longer. In general, the later in a pregnancy PROM occurs, the sooner the onset of labor.. Sometimes a leak high up in the amniotic sac may reseal itself so that preterm labor does not start or subsides.. In rare cases, a pregnancy can be carried to term if pPROM occurs in the second trimester.. Standard treatment for pPROM. Standard treatment for pPROM includes antenatal corticosteroid medicines, which are used to speed up fetal lung maturity at or before 34 weeks of pregnancy.. Other treatment for pPROM. Other treatment for pPROM may include:. ...
The vaginal ecology of pregnant women does not differ substantially from that of women who are not pregnant. However, studies conducted over the last decade have established that most of the organisms that infect amniotic fluid or cause chorioamnionitis are derived from the lower genital tract. In addition, recent studies have established that some organisms that are considered part of the normal vaginal microflora are associated with an increased risk of preterm or low-birth-weight delivery or both when they are present at high density in the vagina. The chapter discusses the frequency of genital microorganisms in women of different ethnic groups. Bacterial vaginosis is a condition in which high concentrations of vaginal lactobacilli are replaced by a mixed population of Gardnerella vaginalis, anaerobic gram-negative rods and cocci, and genital mycoplasmas. A number of studies have evaluated the association between genital or urinary tract colonization with group B streptococci and adverse outcomes of
The placental microbiome is the nonpathogenic, commensal bacteria present in a healthy human placenta and is distinct from bacteria that cause infection and preterm birth in chorioamnionitis. Until recently, the healthy placenta was considered to be a sterile organ but now genera and species have been identified that reside in the basal layer. The placental microbiome more closely resembles that of the oral microbiome than either the vaginal or rectal microbiome. Culturable and non-culturable bacterial species in the placenta obtained following normal term pregnancy have been identified. A change in the composition of the microbiota in the placenta is associated with excess gestational weight gain, pre-term birth, and decreased overall species richness and variant abundance. The placental microbiota varies between low birth weights and normal birth weights. While bacteria are often found in the amniotic fluid of failed pregnancies, they are also found in particulate matter that is found in about ...
Betamethasone is proven to be better than dexamethasone in reducing the neonatal morbidity and mortality, and cause less incidence of chorioamnionitis(1,2). However, as the betamethasone salt available in India is different from that used in international trials (3), same conclusion cannot be drawn, and either dexamethasone or betamethasone may be used depending upon availability.. There is also concern over increased prevalence of undiagnosed maternal infections in India, hence, more trials are needed on safety of use of corticosteroids. One of the trials showed increase in neonatal mortality and maternal infection with use of ACS in low-income and middle-income countries (4).. Use of ACS in late preterm babies (34 - 37 weeks) and early term (37 - 39 weeks) has been a matter of controversy so far and more data are needed to either support or refute the use of ACS in these populations. There are definite short-term benefits (mainly in reducing transient tachypnea of newborn) with some ...
The revised 2010 GBS American Academy of Pediatrics guidelines for neonatal management were designed to broaden the scope to include all neonates, to increase the clarity of the recommendations, and to decrease unnecessary laboratory evaluations and empirical antibiotics for infants at low risk. Although this strategy will never prevent all infections, the revised guidelines should result in a further decrease in cases of perinatal GBS disease. The management of neonates continues to be based on clinical signs, the presence of maternal risk factors for GBS neonatal disease, and the likely efficacy of IAP (or maternal antimicrobial treatment in the case of clinical or occult chorioamnionitis) in preventing early-onset disease. The revised infant management algorithm (Fig 1) is derived from recent data summarized in the published CDC document regarding the epidemiology of GBS disease and the usefulness of a "limited evaluation" of well-appearing neonates.. All newborn infants with signs suggestive ...
Preterm labour continues to be a major contributor to neonatal and infant morbidity. Recent data from the USA indicate that the number of preterm deliveries (including those associated with preterm labour) has risen in the last 20 years by 30%. This increase is despite considerable efforts to introduce new therapies for the prevention and treatment of preterm labour and highlights the need to assess research in this area from a fresh perspective. In this paper we discuss i) the limitations of our knowledge concerning prediction, prevention and treatment of preterm labour and ii) future multidisciplinary strategies for improving our approach.
Kharkiv National Medical University, Kharkov, Ukraine In recent years, attention is drawn to the growth of intrauterine infections, which are responsible for the entire spectrum of antenatal pathology: infectious diseases of the fetus, the vices of its development, stillbirth, prematurity, development of placental insufficiency and intrauterine growth retardation. The role of infection in the pathogenesis of pathological conditions emerging in the perinatal period, in newborns is marked. In the development of the fetus infectious lesions, severity of disease, localization of the pathological process, the pace of implementation and manifestations occurred pathology are important type of pathogen, its virulence and the penetration of microorganisms from the mother to the fetus. The review presents the data of influence of intrauterine infections on the embryo, fetus, the course and outcome of pregnancy, as well as the status of the newborn.

Preterm labor is the leading cause of perinatal morbidity and mortality in the United States. It is characterized by cervical effacement and/or dilatation and increased uterine irritability before 37 weeks of gestation. Women with a history of preterm labor are at greatest risk. Strategies for reducing the incidence of preterm labor and delivery have focused on educating both physicians and patients about the risks for preterm labor and methods of detecting preterm cervical dilatation. Methods used to predict preterm labor include weekly cervical assessment, transvaginal ultrasonography, detection of fetal fibronectin and home uterine activity monitoring. As yet, it is unclear if any of these strategies should be routinely employed. At present, management of preterm labor may include the use of tocolytic agents, corticosteroids and antibiotics.
To establish the frequency of necrotizing funisitis in congenital syphilis, we conducted a prospective descriptive study of maternal syphilis in Bolivia by testing 1,559 women at delivery with rapid plasma reagin (RPR). We examined umbilical cords of 66 infants whose mothers had positive RPR and fluorescent treponemal antibody absorption tests. Histologic abnormalities were detected in 28 (42%) umbilical cords (seven [11%] had necrotizing funisitis with spirochetes; three [4%] had marked funisitis without necrosis; and 18 [27%] had mild funisitis), and 38 [58%] were normal. Of 22 umbilical cords of infants from mothers without syphilis (controls), only two (9%) showed mild funisitis; the others were normal. Testing umbilical cords by using immunohistochemistry is a research tool that can establish the frequency of funisitis due to Treponema pallidum infection.
