The researchers also found that preterm births
among Latina women were at its peak between February and July 2017.
And the result was the same: an increase in preterm births
among Hispanic women.
Extremely preterm birth
(less than 28 weeks) was associated with a threefold increased risk of CKD into mid-adulthood (13.33 per 100,000 person-years).
is often a devastating maternal and birth outcome, leading to lifelong, adverse consequences for mothers and their babies," said Kevin Bramer, President and CEO of Lucina Health.
While preterm birth
is a heterogeneous health-related condition, several risk factors are known and are routinely addressed during antenatal care (e.g., age, economic status and workplace conditions, inflammation and infection, and diet and nutrition).
is linked with both psychological and physical disabilities and is considered as the leading cause of infant morbidity and mortality worldwide.
The current study was planned to investigate the benefit of monitoring pregnant women with high-risk pregnancy forpreventing preterm birth
. The secondary objective was to analyse the main risk factors associated with preterm birth
at a tertiary level regional emergency referral maternity centre.
The association between eczema and preterm birth
was no longer significant among children born moderately preterm, Dr.
Schulze and her colleagues prospectively followed 69 couples in which the woman was admitted to the hospital at high risk of preterm birth
. These women had a mean gestational age of 30 weeks and had symptoms of imminent preterm birth
: shortening of the cervix, premature rupture of membranes, or active preterm labor.
occur at <37 completed weeks' gestation and are one of the main adverse pregnancy outcomes.[sup] Preterm births
account for approximately 75% of perinatal mortality and have long-term adverse consequences for health, such as cerebral palsy, learning disabilities, and sensory deficits, which in turn impose a huge public health burden.[sup], Preterm birth
might result from many determinants, including biological factors (premature rupture of membranes and intrauterine infection) and other socioeconomic and environmental determinants (maternal occupation, maternal education, cultural level, and prenatal visits).[sup], These socioeconomic and environmental determinants may be more important than biological factors for the sake of control and prevention.
In recent years, scientists have become all the more interested in the consequences of preterm birth
on, amongst other things, cardiovascular health in young adults.
For white mothers, the preterm birth
percentage fell to 8.88 percent in 2015, from 8.91 in 2014, and from 8.94 percent in 2013.
