1. Biomarkers in mid-trimester amniotic fluid in relation to gestational duration and spontaneous preterm delivery
Sammanfattning : Background: The biological mechanisms and physiological pathways of pregnancy maintenance and timing of delivery are complex and multifactorial. Pregnancy clocks, partly controlled by timing mechanisms linked to fetal development, which regulate the onset of labor has previously been described. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : This thesis investigates the mechanisms behind human pregnancy duration. Too short gestation is a direct cause of perinatal, neonatal, and infant mortality. Deviation from normal pregnancy length is also associated with a child's morbidity, even in the adulthood. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Objectives To assess physical fitness in pregnancy and to evaluate its effect on perceived health, back pain, blood pressure and duration of gestation. Also, to evaluate the effect of serum relaxin levels on blood pressure and duration of gestation. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Anemia and micronutrient deficiencies in infancy are common in low-income settings. These are partly due to maternal malnutrition and may impair child health and development. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Accurate estimation of the gestational age (GA) of the fetus is a key assessment made by providers of obstetric care during pregnancy, since decisions concerning management strategies are dependent on this estimate. Thus, the prognosis for preterm infants born at the border of viability is strongly dependent on the accuracy with which GA can be determined. LÄS MER
