TitleThe interaction between the vaginal microbiome, cervical length and vaginal progesterone treatment for preterm birth risk
Study TypeOther
Abstract A short cervix in the second trimester of pregnancy is a risk factor for preterm birth (PTB). Vaginal progesterone reduces this risk in specific patient cohorts. In a group of women at high risk of PTB (n=161) we examined the relationship between second trimester vaginal microbiome using 16S rRNA ge .. [more]
