Maternal exposure to low-level air pollution and pregnancy outcomes: a population-based study. (1/1489)

BACKGROUND: Recent reports have shown that air pollution may increase the risk of adverse birth outcomes. We have evaluated the relationship between ambient air pollution and the occurrence of low birth weight and preterm delivery using routinely collected data in Lithuania. METHODS: This epidemiological study comprised all singleton newborns (N = 3,988), born to women in 1998, who resided in the City of Kaunas. Birth data and information on maternal characteristics were obtained from the Lithuanian National Birth Register. To estimate residential exposure levels, we used measurements of ambient nitrogen dioxide (NO2) and formaldehyde, which were collected at 12 monitoring posts. Multivariate logistic regression was used to estimate the effect that each pollutant would have on low birth weight (LBW) and premature birth while controlling for potential confounders. RESULTS: Adjusted odds ratios (OR) for LBW increased with increasing formaldehyde exposure (OR2nd tertile = 1.86, 95% CI 1.10-3.16; OR3rd tertile = 1.84, 95% CI 1.12-3.03). Adjusted ORs of preterm birth for the medium and high NO2 tertile exposures were OR = 1.14 (95% CI 0.77-1.68) and OR = 1.68 (95% CI 1.15-2.46), respectively. The risk of preterm birth increased by 25% (adjusted OR = 1.25, 95% CI 1.07-1.46) per 10 microg/m3 increase in NO2 concentrations. An analysis by trimester showed that pregnancy outcomes were associated with first-trimester exposure to air pollutants. However, there were no significant relationships in other pregnancy periods between preterm birth and exposure to formaldehyde or between LBW and NO2 exposure. CONCLUSION: Our findings suggest that in the City of Kaunas there might be a relationship between maternal exposure to ambient formaldehyde and the risk of LBW, as well as between NO2 exposure and the risk of preterm birth.  (+info)

A candidate gene association study on preterm delivery: application of high-throughput genotyping technology and advanced statistical methods. (2/1489)

Preterm delivery (PTD) is the leading cause of infant mortality and morbidity worldwide. The etiology of PTD is largely unknown but is believed to be complex, encompassing multiple genetic and environmental determinants. To date, reports of genetic studies on PTD are sparse. We conducted a large-scale case-control study exploring the associations of 426 single-nucleotide polymorphisms with PTD in 300 mothers with PTD and 458 mothers with term deliveries at the Boston Medical Center. Twenty-five candidate genes were included in the final haplotype analysis, and a significant association of F5 gene haplotype with PTD was revealed and remained significant after Bonferroni correction for multiple testing (P=0.025). We applied different statistical algorithms (both Gibbs sampling and expectation-maximization) in reconstructing haplotype phases and different tests (both likelihood ratio test and permutation test) in association analyses, and all yielded similar results. We also performed exploratory ethnicity-specific analyses, which confirmed the consistent findings of the F5 gene across the ethnic groups. Moreover, IL1R2 (P=0.002 in Blacks), NOS2A (P<0.001 in Whites) and OPRM1 (P=0.004 in Hispanics) gene haplotypes were associated with PTD in specific ethnic groups but not at global significance level. In summary, our results underscore the potentially important role of F5 gene variants in the pathogenesis of PTD, and demonstrate the utility of high-throughput genotyping and a haplotype-based approach in dissecting genetic basis of complex traits.  (+info)

Relation of cervical length at 22-24 weeks of gestation to demographic characteristics and obstetric history. (3/1489)

Preterm delivery is the main cause of neonatal death and ultrasonographic cervical assessment has been shown to be more accurate than digital examination in recognizing a short cervix. This is a cross-sectional study, involving 1131 women at 22-24 weeks of pregnancy, designed to determine the distribution of cervical length and to examine which variables of demographic characteristics and obstetric history increase the risk of a short cervix (15 mm or less). The distribution of maternal demographic and obstetric history characteristics among patients with cervical length pound 15 mm was analyzed and compared to the findings for the general population. Risk ratios (RR) between subgroups were generated from this comparison. Median cervical length was 37 mm and in 1.5% of cases it was 15 mm or less. The proportion of women with a short cervix (< or =15 mm) was significantly higher among patients with a low body mass index (RR = 3.5) and in those with previous fetal losses between 16-23 weeks (RR = 33.1) or spontaneous preterm deliveries between 24-32 weeks (RR = 14.1). We suggest that transvaginal sonographic measurement of cervical length be performed as part of a routine midtrimester ultrasound evaluation. There are specific variables of demographic characteristics and obstetric history which increase the risk of detecting a short cervix at 22-24 weeks.  (+info)

Nonnutritive swallowing and respiration relationships in preterm lambs. (4/1489)

The aim of the present study was to assess the effects of the different states of alertness on 1) nonnutritive swallowing (NNS) frequency, 2) the relationship between NNS and the respiratory cycle, and 3) the association of NNS with spontaneous apneas. Recordings of sleep states, diaphragm and laryngeal constrictor electrical activity, nasal flow, electrocardiogram, respiratory inductance plethysmography, and pulse oximetry were obtained from six preterm lambs without sedation. Analysis of 2,468 NNS showed that 1) NNS frequency was higher during quiet wakefulness and active sleep (AS) than in quiet sleep; 2) in all states of alertness, a greater number of NNS (38%) were preceded and followed by an inspiration; 3) although NNS and central apneas were rarely coincidental, AS appeared to favor their association; and 4) most obstructive apneas occurred in AS and were coincidental with bursts of NNS. Compared with results in full-term lambs, premature birth does not modify the NNS-respiratory coordination. However, AS in preterm lambs is characterized by a higher association of NNS bursts with obstructive apneas.  (+info)

Oxygen-sensitive Kv channel gene transfer confers oxygen responsiveness to preterm rabbit and remodeled human ductus arteriosus: implications for infants with patent ductus arteriosus. (5/1489)

BACKGROUND: Oxygen (O2)-sensitive K+ channels mediate acute O2 sensing in many tissues. At birth, initial functional closure of the ductus arteriosus (DA) results from O2-induced vasoconstriction. This mechanism often fails in premature infants, resulting in persistent DA, a common form of congenital heart disease. We hypothesized that the basis for impaired O2 constriction in preterm DA is reduced expression and function of O2-sensitive, voltage-gated (Kv) channels. METHODS AND RESULTS: Preterm rabbit DA rings have reduced O2 constriction (even after inhibition of prostaglandin and nitric oxide synthases), and preterm DA smooth muscle cells (DASMCs) display reduced O2-sensitive K+ current. This is associated with decreased mRNA and protein expression of certain O2-sensitive Kv channels (Kv1.5 and Kv2.1) but equivalent expression of the L-type calcium channel. Transmural Kv1.5 or Kv2.1 gene transfer "rescues" the developmental deficiency, conferring O2 responsiveness to preterm rabbit DAs. Targeted SMC Kv1.5 gene transfer also enhances O2 constriction in human DAs. CONCLUSIONS: These data demonstrate a central role for developmentally regulated DASMC O2-sensitive Kv channels in the functional closure of the DA. Modulation of Kv channels may have therapeutic potential in diseases associated with impaired O2 responsiveness, including persistent DA.  (+info)

Lung volumes and alveolar expansion pattern in immature rabbits treated with serum-diluted surfactant. (6/1489)

In acute respiratory distress syndrome, mechanical ventilation often induces alveolar overdistension aggravating the primary insult. To examine the mechanism of overdistension, surfactant-deficient immature rabbits were anesthetized with pentobarbital sodium, and their lungs were treated with serum-diluted modified natural surfactant (porcine lung extract; 2 mg/ml, 10 ml/kg). By mechanical ventilation with a peak inspiration pressure of 22.5 cm H2O, the animals had a tidal volume of 14.7 ml/kg (mean), when 2.5 cm H2O positive end-expiratory pressure was added. This volume was similar to that in animals treated with nondiluted modified natural surfactant (24 mg/ml in Ringer solution, 10 ml/kg). However, the lungs fixed at 10 cm H2O on the deflation limbs of the pressure-volume curve had the largest alveolar/alveolar duct profiles (> or =48,000 microm2), accounting for 38% of the terminal air spaces, and the smallest (<6,000 microm2), accounting for 31%. These values were higher than those in animals treated with nondiluted modified natural surfactant (P <0.05). We conclude that administration of serum-diluted surfactant to immature neonatal lungs leads to patchy overdistension of terminal air spaces, similar to the expansion pattern that may be seen after dilution of endogenous surfactant with proteinaceous edema fluid in acute respiratory distress syndrome.  (+info)

Jail incarceration and birth outcomes. (7/1489)

This study examined the relationships between jail incarceration during pregnancy and infant birth weight, preterm birth, and fetal growth restriction. We used multivariate regression analyses to compare outcomes for 496 births to women who were in jail for part of pregnancy with 4,960 Medicaid-funded births as matched community controls. After adjusting for potential confounding variables, the relationship between jail incarceration and birth outcomes was modified by maternal age. Relative to controls, women incarcerated during pregnancy had progressively higher odds of low birth weight and preterm birth through age 39 years; conversely, jail detainees older than 39 years were less likely than controls to experience low birth weight or preterm birth. For women in jail at all ages, postrelease maternity case management was associated with decreased odds of low birth weight, whereas prenatal care was associated with decreased odds of preterm birth. Local jails are important sites for public health intervention. Efforts to ensure that all pregnant women released from jail have access to enhanced prenatal health services may improve perinatal outcomes for this group of particularly vulnerable women and infants.  (+info)

Paternal occupational exposure to 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin and birth outcomes of offspring: birth weight, preterm delivery, and birth defects. (8/1489)

Agent Orange is a phenoxy herbicide that was contaminated with 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD). We studied pregnancy outcomes among wives of male chemical workers who were highly exposed to chemicals contaminated with TCDD and among wives of nonexposed neighborhood referents. For exposed pregnancies, we estimated serum TCDD concentration at the time of conception using a pharmacokinetic model. The mean TCDD concentration for workers' births was 254 pg/g lipid (range, 3-16,340 pg/g). The mean referent concentration of 6 pg/g was assigned to pregnancies fathered by workers before exposure. A total of 1,117 live singleton births of 217 referent wives and 176 worker wives were included. Only full-term births were included in the birth weight analysis (greater than or equal to 37 weeks of gestation). Mean birth weight among full-term babies was similar among referents' babies (n = 604), preexposure workers' babies (n = 221), and exposed workers' babies (n = 292) (3,420, 3,347, and 3,442 g, respectively). Neither continuous nor categorical TCDD concentration had an effect on birth weight for term infants after adjustment for infant sex, mother's education, parity, prenatal cigarette smoking, and gestation length. An analysis to estimate potential direct exposure of the wives during periods of workers' exposure yielded a nonstatistically significant increase in infant birth weight of 130 g in the highest exposure group (TCDD concentration > 254 pg/g) compared with referents (p = 0.09). Mothers' reports of preterm delivery showed a somewhat protective association with paternal TCDD (log) concentration (odds ratio = 0.8; 95% confidence interval, 0.6-1.1). We also include descriptive information on reported birth defects. Because the estimated TCDD concentrations in this population were much higher than in other studies, the results indicate that TCDD is unlikely to increase the risk of low birth weight or preterm delivery through a paternal mechanism. Key words: birth defects, birth weight, congenital anomalies, dioxin, occupation, paternal exposure, preterm birth, TCDD.  (+info)

Sophisticated analyses of two clinical trials -- one in the U.S. and the other in the Australia -- suggest that thousands of early preterm births -- those at or before 34 weeks gestation -- could be prevented if pregnant women took daily docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) supplements.. The randomized controlled trials in which pregnant women took daily DHA supplements independently found statistically significant reductions in early preterm birth. The statistical model examined low-, moderate- and high-risk births from mothers supplemented with DHA during pregnancy as compared to placebo controls. The researchers estimated that more than 106,000 high-risk early preterm births could be avoided in the U.S. and about 1,100 could be prevented in Australia each year if pregnant women took daily supplements of the omega fatty acid.. Infants born very preterm often require lifesaving treatments and longer hospitalizations at birth and are at increased risk for additional hospitalizations in the first year of ...
TUESDAY, Aug. 8, 2017 (HealthDay News) -- Sleep disorders during pregnancy may increase the risk of preterm birth, a new study finds.. The California research looked at 2,265 pregnant women who were diagnosed with a sleep disorder, such as insomnia or sleep apnea. They were compared to a control group of pregnant women without a sleep disorder diagnosis but with similar maternal risk factors for preterm birth, such as a previous preterm birth, smoking during pregnancy, or high blood pressure. The rate of preterm birth was 14.6 percent among women with sleep disorders and 10.9 percent among the control group. Preterm birth is defined as delivery before 37 weeks gestation.. The risk of delivery before 34 weeks gestation was more than double among women with sleep apnea and nearly double among those with insomnia, according to the study.. It was published Aug. 8 in the journal Obstetrics & Gynecology.. Treating sleep disorders could help reduce the preterm birth rate, which stands at about 10 ...
The National Institutes of Health (NIH). March 1, 2016. Pregnant women with asthma may be at greater risk of preterm birth when exposed to high levels of certain traffic-related air pollutants, according to a study by researchers at the National Institutes of Health and other institutions.. The researchers observed an increased risk associated with both ongoing and short-term exposure to nitrogen oxides and carbon monoxide, particularly when women were exposed to those pollutants just before conception and in early pregnancy.. For example, an increase of 30 parts per billion in nitrogen oxide exposure in the three months prior to pregnancy increased preterm birth risk by nearly 30 percent for women with asthma, compared to 8 percent for women without asthma. Greater carbon monoxide exposure during the same period raised preterm birth risk by 12 percent for asthmatic women, but had no effect on preterm birth risk for non-asthmatics.. The last six weeks of pregnancy was another critical window for ...
Background Being able to predict preterm birth is important, as it may allow a high-risk population to be selected for future interventional studies and help in understanding the pathways that lead to preterm birth. Objective To investigate the accuracy of novel biomarkers to predict spontaneous preterm birth in women with singleton pregnancies and no symptoms of preterm labour. Search strategy Electronic searches in PubMed, Embase, Cinahl, Lilacs, and Medion, references of retrieved articles, and conference proceedings. No language restrictions were applied. Selection criteria Observational studies that evaluated the accuracy of biomarkers proposed in the last decade to predict spontaneous preterm birth in asymptomatic women. We excluded studies in which biomarkers were evaluated in women with preterm labour. Data collection and analysis Two reviewers independently extracted data on study characteristics, quality, and accuracy. Data were arranged in 2 × 2 contingency tables and synthesised separately

N2 - Background: Preliminary data suggest that common genetic variation in immune response genes can contribute to the risk for spontaneous preterm birth and possibly small-for-gestational age (SGA). Methods: We investigated the relationship of polymorphisms in 6 cytokine genes associated with inflammation-interleukin (IL)1α, IL1β, IL2, IL6, tumor necrosis factor (TNF), and lymphotoxin α (LTA)-with spontaneous preterm and SGA birth in a nested case-control study drawn from a prospective pregnancy cohort. Women were recruited between 24 and 29 weeks gestation at the Wake County and University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill obstetric clinics between February 1996 and June 2000. We inferred haplotypes ...
This study evaluated the consequences of late preterm birth on child growth in the first two years of life as compared to term deliveries in a population-based cohort from a middle-income country. Among the strengths of the study, besides sample size, are the low rates of refusal and loss to follow-up, and the prospective cohort design that allows assessment of temporal relationships.. A key limitation of the study is that most of the confounders studied were self-reported by mothers. Furthermore, in the analyses of late preterm birth and wasting at 12 and 24 months of age, the low number of children born late preterm that were wasted resulted in reduced precision.. Some methodological issues of this study are worthy of being discussed. First, some of the increase in morbidity among late preterm children may be attributable to observation and detection bias, because mothers and medical doctors may be more attentive to monitor symptoms and signs of medical complications and diseases in preterm ...
Secular trends in the prevalence of preterm birth and international comparisons of the rates of preterm birth are difficult to interpret because of differences, both formal and informal, in the registration of extremely preterm births. Accurate estimation of gestational age is another problem in the measurement of preterm birth. Preterm birth is heterogeneous in several ways. It is heterogeneous in terms of the extent to which the birth is preterm (20-27 weeks, 28-31 weeks or 32-36 weeks of gestation); in whether the birth was elective or spontaneous; and among spontaneous idiopathic preterm births, in whether there was preterm labour or premature rupture of the membranes. Case-control study designs taking account of these subgroups have been a recent feature of epidemiologic approaches. The classic social associations of preterm birth--low socioeconomic status, extremes of maternal age, primiparity, being unmarried--apply to extremely preterm and moderately preterm births as well as to the mildly
Results In total, 7.5% (95% CI 7.2 to 7.9) of all spontaneous births were preterm. The prevalence of preterm birth according to the mothers BMI was 7.3% (95% CI 6.9 to 7.7) for normal weight, 7.6% (95% CI 6.4 to 8.9) for underweight, 8.2% (95% CI 7.4 to 9.1) for overweight and 8.3% (95% CI 7.0 to 9.6) for obese women. The risk of spontaneous preterm birth was increased in overweight women compare to normal weight mothers (crude OR 1.15, 95% CI 1.13 to 1.31). After adjustment for marital status and education, increased risks of preterm delivery were found in both overweight (OR 1.18, 95% CI 1.04 to 1.34) and obese women (OR 1.21, 95% CI 1.00 to 1.45). Further adjustment for age, parity, infant sex, smoking and alcohol abuse, reduced the associations to non-significant level. ...
The purpose of the present study was to search for associations between spontaneous preterm birth (sPTB), single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) associated with the apoptotic pathway as triggered by oxidative stress, maternal lifestyle and health status. SNP genotyping [rs7560 for c-Jun N-terminal kinase (JNK), rs9517320 for mammalian STE20-like protein kinase 3 (MST3), rs1049216 for caspase 3 (CASP3)] in the placenta and maternal blood of 300 controls with at-term birth and 43 cases of sPTB was performed. No association was identified in genotype frequencies or combinations of foetal/maternal genotypes between single SNPs and sPTB. The risk of sPTB was significantly reduced by physical activity and significantly increased by current hypertensive diseases, premature rupture of membranes (PROM) or preterm PROM (P-PROM) and previous sPTB. The TT/GA genotype of JNK/CASP3 in maternal blood and maternal health status (current hypertensive diseases, current PROM/P-PROM, previous sPTB) were ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Progesterone for the prevention of preterm birth. AU - Salati, Jennifer. AU - Caughey, Aaron B.. PY - 2014/1/1. Y1 - 2014/1/1. N2 - Preterm birth is the leading cause of neonatal morbidity and mortality in the United States and is one of the leading causes worldwide, with the highest rates of mortality occurring in those born at less than 32 weeks gestation. A history of preterm birth is one of the strongest risk factors for recurrent preterm delivery; however, early cervical shortening and multiple gestations also confer an increased risk of preterm birth. The precise causal mechanisms underlying the preterm birth pathway are still under investigation; however, available evidence suggests a role of progesterone in preterm birth prevention in certain high-risk populations. Specifically, intramuscular 17-hydroxyprogesterone appears beneficial in women with a prior pretermbirth at less than 37 weeks gestation (relative risk, 0.55; 95% confidence interval, 0.42-74) and preterm ...
Progesterone for the prevention of preterm birth: indications, when to initiate, efficacy and safety Helen Y How, Baha M SibaiDivision of Maternal Fetal Medicine, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, University of Cincinnati, Cincinnati, OH USAAbstract: Preterm birth is the leading cause of neonatal mortality and morbidity and long-term disability of non-anomalous infants. Previous studies have identified a prior early spontaneous preterm birth as the risk factor with the highest predictive value for recurrence. Two recent double blind randomized placebo controlled trials reported lower preterm birth rate with the use of either intramuscular 17 alpha-hydroxyprogesterone caproate (IM 17OHP-C) or intravaginal micronized progesterone suppositories in women at risk for preterm delivery. However, it is still unclear which high-risk women would truly benefit from this treatment in a general clinical setting and whether socio-cultural, racial and genetic differences play a role in patients response to
A baby born at less than 37 weeks of gestation is considered preterm. This occurs more often among black women than white women and is a leading cause of infant morbidity and mortality in the United States. Obesity is associated with intrauterine infections, systematic inflammation, dyslipidemia, and hyperinsulinemia, all of which may increase the risk of preterm birth. In order to investigate the relations of preterm birth with prepregnancy obesity and gestational weight gain, the BUSM researchers used data from the Slone Epidemiology Centers Black Womens Health Study. They compared mothers of more than 1,000 infants born three or more weeks early with mothers of more than 7,000 full-term infants. They examined two types of preterm birth: that indicated for medical reasons (medically-indicated) and that occurring for no known reason (spontaneous).. The researchers found that obesity increased the risk of medically-indicated preterm birth and very early spontaneous preterm birth (,32 weeks), ...
since we know that preterm birth is the most common cause of infant death, and survivors of preterm birth may need special health care or educational interventions in order to thrive and be productive in our workforce.. Looking back: ideally, Alachua Countys preterm birth rate 12.5% (# of preterm births per 100 births) should go down year after year, and the total number of pre-term births should be fewer than observed last year.. We can compare our past or current pre-term birth rate to that of other counties and to the state. But in order to reduce the number of pre-term births, we need to take local action. To guide our interventions, we need to look forward.. Looking forward: Because we know that pre-term births are more common in pregnant women under stress, it is helpful to know where pre-term births cluster in our community, so that we can do what is possible to reduce environmental stress in those neighborhoods. One of the main stressors many women face is domestic violence, thus by ...
New research presented at ACOG 2014 shows that inadequate weight gain in the second trimester is an independent risk factor for spontaneous preterm birth.
Preterm birth is the leading cause of perinatal morbidity and mortality. Risk factors for preterm birth include a personal or familial history of preterm delivery, ethnicity and low socioeconomic status yet the ability to predict preterm delivery before the onset of preterm labour evades clinical practice. Evidence suggests that genetics may play a role in the multi-factorial pathophysiology of preterm birth. The All Our Babies Study is an on-going community based longitudinal cohort study that was designed to establish a cohort of women to investigate how a womens genetics and environment contribute to the pathophysiology of preterm birth. Specifically this study will examine the predictive potential of maternal leukocytes for predicting preterm birth in non-labouring women through the examination of gene expression profiles and gene-environment interactions. Collaborations have been established between clinical lab services, the provincial health service provider and researchers to create an
Chronic stress is considered to be one of many causes of human preterm birth (PTB), but no direct evidence has yet been provided. Here we show in rats that stress across generations has downstream effects on endocrine, metabolic and behavioural manifestations of PTB possibly via microRNA (miRNA) regulation. Pregnant dams of the parental generation were exposed to stress from gestational days 12 to 18. Their pregnant daughters (F1) and grand-daughters (F2) either were stressed or remained as non-stressed controls. Gestational length, maternal gestational weight gain, blood glucose and plasma corticosterone levels, litter size and offspring weight gain from postnatal days 1 to 30 were recorded in each generation, including F3. Maternal behaviours were analysed for the first hour after completed parturition, and offspring sensorimotor development was recorded on postnatal day (P) 7. F0 through F2 maternal brain frontal cortex, uterus and placenta miRNA and gene expression patterns were used to identify
Objective: Despite decades of research on risk indicators of spontaneous preterm birth (PTB), reliable biomarkers are still not available to screen or diagnose high-risk pregnancies. Several biomarkers in maternal and fetal compartments have been mechanistically linked to PTB, but none of them are reliable predictors of pregnancy outcome. This systematic review was conducted to synthesize the knowledge on PTB biomarkers identified using multiplex analysis. Materials and methods: Three electronic databases (PubMed, EMBASE and Web of Science) were searched for studies in any language reporting the use of multiplex assays for maternal biomarkers associated with PTB published from January 2005 to March 2014. Results: Retrieved citations (3631) were screened, and relevant studies (33) were selected for full-text reading. Ten studies were included in the review. Forty-two PTB-related proteins were reported, and RANTES and IL-10 (three studies) followed by MIP-1 beta, GM-CSF, Eotaxin, and TNF-RI (two ...

Introduction. Preterm birth, defined as childbirth occurring at less than 37 completed weeks or 259 days of gestation, is a major determinant of neonatal mortality and morbidity and has long-term adverse consequences for health.1 3 Children who are born prematurely have higher rates of cerebral palsy, sensory deficits, learning disabilities and respiratory illnesses compared with children born at term. The morbidity associated with preterm birth often extends to later life, resulting in enormous physical, psychological and economic costs.4,5 Estimates indicate that in 2005 the costs to the United States of America alone in terms of medical and educational expenditure and lost productivity associated with preterm birth were more than US$ 26.2 billion.6. Of all early neonatal deaths (deaths within the first 7 days of life) that are not related to congenital malformations, 28% are due to preterm birth.7 Preterm birth rates have been reported to range from 5% to 7% of live births in some developed ...

Preterm birth is the most common cause of death and harm to newborn babies. In the USA, about one in every 10 babies is born preterm, before the 37th week of pregnancy. Preterm birth is more common in African American women, affecting about one in every seven babies. In Europe, about 1 in 20 births is preterm, and in African countries, almost 1 in 5 babies are delivered before 37 weeks.. Babies born early may have difficulties at birth and health problems during early childhood. They are more likely to die during their first year and to experience long-term disabilities such as cerebral palsy, epilepsy, blindness, and hearing loss. Reducing the numbers of preterm births is therefore important to pregnant women and their families, and is a global health priority.. Progestogens are medications that are similar to the pregnancy hormone progesterone. They are thought to help prevent preterm birth in women who may be at higher risk of an early birth. Women who have had a preterm birth in a previous ...
The MoD is on a quest to reduce preterm births and because roughly half of them are from unknown causes, a good deal of the research they fund is to get at the root causes and potential prevention of those unknowns. Preeclampsia is - at last count - the number one KNOWN cause of preterm birth, around 15%. The March of Dimes does fund *some* research in preeclampsia, recognizing its role in this problem, and was an active participant in a PE workshop at NIH 3 years ago (I was a presenter there on behalf of the PF). I will also find out the current status and amount of that research, relative to the overall pot of money being spent in this area. I believe that if you are donating to them, you should understand how much of your dollar is targeted to the issues you care about ...
A search of the published and unpublished medical and health economics literature by us revealed that relatively few studies have estimated the long-term economic impact of preterm birth.18,19,29 Moreover, the studies that have been conducted to date were based on relatively small samples of infants and frequently violated current methodologic requirements of health economic evaluation.19 Our study generated a mean cost difference of £14 614 (US $22 798) when infants born at ,28 weeks gestational age were compared with term infants and £11 958 (US $18 654) when infants born at 28 to 31 weeks gestational age were compared with term infants. Moreover, these cost differences had been calculated after a multivariate analysis controlled for a wide range of clinical and sociodemographic confounding factors including birth weight for gestational age, year of birth, sex, survival period, maternal age and morbidity, multiplicity of birth, and a comprehensive profile of childhood diseases.. The major ...
For those of you living on the east coast, Im sure like me, you have a deep appreciation for the EZ Pass. With an EZ Pass, instead of sitting in traffic breathing exhaust and slowly inching up to the toll booth with your dollar bills in hand, you can drive right through the terminal. Because of that little box fixed to the windshield, its smooth sailing from Florida to Maine.. It turns out there is yet another reason to appreciate your EZ Pass. It is the reason for better birth weights and less premature births in the communities surrounding the toll plazas. A new study finds that among roughly 30,000 births within 2 kilometers of a toll plaza in a recent study, 255 premature births and 275 low birth weigh births were averted because of the installation of an E-ZPass.

Five researchers from four states are investigating how genetics and infections interact to cause preterm birth as well as how proteins and hormones regulate a healthy pregnancy, all with the goal of giving more babies a healthy start in life, the March of Dimes announced today.. The researchers will study the role that fetal fibronectin, a protein, plays in triggering premature rupture of the membranes; and how progesterone, a hormone that has been shown to prevent preterm birth in some women, helps a healthy pregnancy. Nearly half a million babies - one out of every nine - are born too soon each year in the United States. Preterm birth is a serious health problem that costs the nation $26 billion annually. It is the leading cause of neonatal death, and babies who survive an early birth have increased risks of lung disease, cerebral palsy and intellectual and developmental disabilities, problems that can affect their health throughout their lives. In 2011, the US preterm birth rate dropped to ...
Preterm birth is associated with adverse renal health outcomes including hypertension, chronic kidney disease, and an increased rate of progression to end-stage renal failure. This review explores the antenatal, perinatal, and postnatal factors that affect the functional nephron mass of an individual and contribute to long-term kidney outcome. Health-care professionals have opportunities to increase their awareness of the risks to kidney health in this population. Optimizing maternal health around the time of conception and during pregnancy, providing kidney-focused supportive care in the NICU during postnatal nephrogenesis, and avoiding accelerating nephron loss throughout life may all contribute to improved long-term outcomes. There is a need for ongoing research into the long-term kidney outcomes of preterm survivors in mid-to-late adulthood as well as a need for further research into interventions that may improve ex utero nephrogenesis. ...

Many studies have been conducted to examine whether Caesarean Section (CS) or vaginal birth (VB) was optimal for better maternal and neonatal outcomes in preterm births. However, findings remain unclear. Therefore, this secondary analysis of World Health Organization Global Survey (GS) and Multi-country Survey (MCS) databases was conducted to investigate outcomes of preterm birth by mode of delivery. Our sample were women with singleton neonates (15,471 of 237 facilities from 21 countries in GS; and 15,053 of 239 facilities from 21 countries in MCS) delivered between 22 and |37 weeks of gestation. We assessed association between mode of delivery and pregnancy outcomes in singleton preterm births by multilevel logistic regression adjusted for hierarchical data. The prevalences of women with preterm birth delivered by CS were 31.0% and 36.7% in GS and MCS, respectively. Compared with VB, CS was associated with significantly increased odds of maternal intensive care unit admission, maternal near miss, and
Preterm birth (PTB) is the leading cause of perinatal morbidity and mortality. Women with previous prenatal loss are at higher risk of preterm birth. A specialist antenatal clinic is considered as one approach to improve maternity and pregnancy outcomes. A systematic review of quantitative, qualitative and mixed method studies conducted on women at high risk of preterm birth (PTB). The review primary outcomes were to report on the specialist antenatal clinics effect in preventing or reducing preterm birth, perinatal mortality and morbidity and womens perceptions and experiences of a specialist clinic whether compared or not compared with standard antenatal care. Other secondary maternal, infant and economic outcomes were also determined. A comprehensive search strategy was carried out in English within electronic databases as far back as 1980. The reviewers selected studies, assessed the quality, and extracted data independently. Results were summarized and tabulated. Eleven studies fully met the
Curbing Premature Birth. A study published in the journal Science Translational Medicine reports that scientists from the Stanford University have identified a molecule in the uterus that can be blocked to delay or halt premature birth. The identification of the molecule can help in curbing deaths and disability in the newborns.. More than 10% of all infants are born prematurely after less than 37 weeks of pregnancy whereas nearly 3% are born quite prematurely after less than 31 weeks of pregnancy. Normal pregnancies last between 38 and 42 weeks. However, there is a mystery behind the labour process which begins in the womb. At present, there is no effective treatment for premature labour. Previous researches have shown that the calcium levels of muscle cells within the uterus walls help control womb contractions.. In this case, researchers focused on TRPV4 molecule that controls the flow of calcium into cells. Scientists found that uterine tissue from pregnant women possessed higher levels of ...
Sometimes, theres just no explanation for why a woman has her baby early. However, certain factors play a part in bringing a baby into the world earlier than expected. If youre pregnant with twins or triplets, you may have your babies earlier than if you were pregnant with one. If youve already had a premature baby, theres a slightly higher chance of you having another premature birth. Social factors play a part, too. Girls under 16 and who have little support are the most likely to have a premature baby. A womans age, class, education and the type of job she does, if it involves long hours and strenuous activity, can affect her chances of having a baby early. Smoking, taking drugs and being underweight are all linked with problems that can cause premature birth.. ...
Scientists have revealed alarming results in regards child mortality, setting premature birth as a leading cause of death among infants.

Chair of the PTBP Initiative Steering Committee and WIRFs Executive Director, Professor John Newnham, said, Preterm birth is the single largest cause of death and disability in children up to five years of age in the developed world. Until recently, preterm birth has been considered to be an unfortunate but inevitable consequence of many human pregnancies, but times have changed. Several decades of research have now left us with the knowledge and skill base that if applied appropriately will safely reduce the rate of preterm birth ...
The bottom line is that women who were treated had about a 30 percent reduction in having a pre-term delivery compared to a placebo, said Dr. Nancy Green, medical director of the March of Dimes, and this was a very well-designed clinical study. The results are good news to clinicians because the causes of pre-term birth are poorly understood and researchers have found few interventions effective in preventing ever-increasing rates of premature delivery. The efficacy of 17P is particularly surprising because it is an old drug that has languished on storage shelves for decades, researchers said. Because the patent on the drug has long-expired, 17P is of little interest to the pharmaceutical industry. The study required public funding in order to resurrect it from the dust heap of clinical research. This is a beautiful study. The network of institutions working together with public health support made it possible, Dr. Emile Papiernik of the Assistance Public Hospital in Paris, told United ...
Preterm birth, i.e., delivery more than 3 weeks before term, affects annually an estimated 13,000,000 newborn infants and rates are increasing1. Only in the USA, about 500,000 infants are born preterm each year and of those, 80,000 are delivered very preterm (more than 8 weeks before the expected date). Without effective care, the number of deaths among very preterm infants would equal that of major causes of death in adults, such as Alzheimers disease or essential hypertension. While mortality after preterm birth was high until a few decades ago, advances in perinatal medicine have resulted in almost universal survival2 so that the concept of prematurity nowadays is shifting from being a pregnancy complication to a common developmental basis for a whole and new generation of young adults. Although this progress is very welcome for women delivering preterm, their infants and their families, there is an increasing concern because preterm birth has been identified as an emerging risk factor for ...

We investigated the association between the risk of preterm delivery and each metabolic gene of glutathione S-transferases mu 1 (GSTM1), theta 1 (GSTT1) and cytochrome P450IA1 (CYP1A1) along with exposure to particulate matter <10 μm (PM10). This study was assumed to identify gene-environment interaction that increases the risk of preterm delivery. A case-control study was carried out on 117 women with preterm deliveries and 118 women with term deliveries in Seoul, Korea. Logistic regression analyses were performed to explore the impact of each gene, PM10 exposure and their interaction on the risk of preterm birth. The risk of preterm birth was associated with the GSTM1 null genotype only. Exposure to high levels of PM10 (≥75th percentile) during the third trimester of pregnancy was associated with an increased risk of preterm birth when compared to low-level exposure to PM10 (<75th percentile). We found that exposure to high levels of PM10 during the third trimester in the presence of ...
Preterm birth is an ongoing health crisis both nationally and globally, occurring at a rate of 9.85% in the USA in 2016, an increase for the first time in decades for the last 2 years.1 Defined as delivery at ,37 weeks of gestational age, preterm birth occurs spontaneously (without obvious medical reason) in roughly two-thirds of cases in the USA and is medically indicated in the remaining one-third.2 Preterm birth is linked to a wide range of adverse health outcomes for both mothers and infants. Infants born prematurely are more likely to suffer from respiratory distress syndrome, sepsis, intraventricular haemorrhage and necrotising enterocolitis shortly after birth, and stay in the hospital an average of 12 days longer than full term births.2 They are also more likely to have long-term complications such as cerebral palsy and retinopathy, as well as increased incidence of chronic diseases such as hypertension, cardiovascular disease (CVD) and type 2 diabetes mellitus.2 3 Mothers who give birth ...
Premature birth affects 450,000 U.S. babies each year and is the leading cause of newborn deaths. But in about half of cases, doctors never figure out what triggered premature labor in the pregnant mom.. Now, theres a new clue: A Stanford study, published today, gives important details of how the microbiome - the bodys community of bacteria - behaves in women whose pregnancies go to the full 40-week term, and whats different in women whose babies come three weeks, or more, early. A specific pattern of vaginal bacteria was linked to greater risk of preterm delivery, and the longer the pattern persisted, the greater the risk, the study found.. The work is one piece of a larger effort by the March of Dimes Prematurity Research Center at Stanford to bring experts from many branches of science together to work on preterm birth. The researchers collected weekly bacterial samples throughout pregnancy from four body sites for 49 pregnant women, of whom 15 delivered prematurely. Patterns of vaginal ...
