Women Presenting in Preterm Labor With Intact Membranes and Suspicion of Intra-amniotic Infection Clinical Trial
Development of a Rapid Amniotic Fluid (AF) Test and a Non-Invasive Vaginal Fluid (VF) Test to Detect Intra-Amniotic Infection and Predict Preterm Birth in Women Presenting With Preterm Labor and Intact Amniotic Membranes
|Start date||March 28, 2018|
|Completion date||March 31, 2020|
A multi-centered, prospective study, involving pregnant women presenting to the labor and delivery unit of collaborating clinical study sites with preterm labor and intact amniotic membranes with and without suspected Intra-Amniotic Infection (IAI).
A study on patients in preterm labor for whom the managing physician plans to perform amniocentesis to evaluate for possible infection using conventional, currently available methods. Vaginal fluid will be collected and analyzed and amniotic fluid will also. These tests will be run remotely and not reported to the clinician.
