Abstract

Objective: Premature activation of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis due to stress can initiate preterm labor. Many mechanisms have been proposed to explain etiopathogenesis. The most important one is clinical and subclinical chorioamnionitis. We aimed to assess the possibility of early detection and prevention of preterm labor based on second trimester amniotic fluid analysis.
