The authors stated that, overall, the differences in the quality of the studies did not have a large effect on the pooled summary estimate. The pooled estimates for a reduction in spontaneous pre-term birth before 34 and 37 weeks were OR 0.75 (95% confidence interval, CI: 0.59, 0.96) and OR 0.86 (95% CI: 0.71, 1.05), respectively.

of 50 microg/minute to 1 mg/minute with increments every 10 to 20 minutes until a maximum dose (ranging from 300 to 350 microg/minute were reported) was reached, contractions ceased, or no limit was specified. Nifedipine doses (where stated) ranged from 10 to 30 mg sublingual, followed by varying regimes with maximum doses ranging from 80 to 160 mg. None of the studies that included women with ruptured membranes reported on the use of antibiotics. The use of corticosteroids was explicitly mentioned (...) in some studies. Other cointerventions included: intravenous morphine, intravenous magnesium sulphate, terbutaline following ritodrine infusion, and indomethacin. Participants included in the review Pregnant women in pre-term labour were eligible, with pre-term defined as labour before 37 weeks of gestation. Both single and twin pregnancies were included. Some studies were limited to women with intact membranes, whilst others also included women with ruptured membranes or provided no details

if they had insulin-dependent diabetes, preterm premature rupture of the membranes, allergy to beta-sympathomimetic drugs, foetal anomalies, or foetal death. Setting The setting of the study was community care. The authors did not clearly state where the study was carried out, but it appears to have been conducted in Jackson (MS), USA. Dates to which data relate The effectiveness and resource use data were collected during the 12 months from January 1, 2001, to December 31, 2001. The price year (...) weight, NICU admission, need for resuscitation, morbidity or mortality, Apgar scores, arterial blood gas information, and total nursery days. The control and intervention groups were matched for cervical dilatation, gestational age at discharge from the hospital for recurrent PTL, maternal age, and the number of prior preterm births caused by PTL or preterm rupture of the membranes. However, the two groups seemed to differ in terms of the risk factors for preterm birth. Effectiveness results Women

critical assessment on the reliability of the study and the conclusions drawn. Health technology This study considered the clinical and financial implications of delaying pre-term delivery that is classified as "elective", from 34 to 35 weeks and from 35 to 36 weeks. Elective pre-term delivery was defined as induced labour, or a scheduled Caesarean delivery, at less than 37 weeks' gestation for reasons other than pre-term labour, premature rupture of membranes, or medical induction for complicating (...) maternal or foetal circumstances (i.e. at the discretion of the patient and her primary physician). Type of intervention Treatment and management. Economic study type Cost-effectiveness analysis.

African American women from 52 clinics in five Michigan, USA communities. Women were interviewed at 15-27 weeks' gestation and followed to delivery. We found that relations between psychosocial factors and PTD subtypes (i.e. medically indicated, premature rupture of membranes, spontaneous labor) varied by race/ethnicity and socio-economic position (Medicaid insurance status). Among African American women not insured by Medicaid, anomie levels in mid-pregnancy were positively associated with medically (...) Hostility and anomie: Links to preterm delivery subtypes and ambulatory blood pressure at mid-pregnancy. Underlying maternal vascular disease has been implicated as one of several pathways contributing to preterm delivery (PTD) and psychosocial factors such as hostility, anomie, effortful coping, and mastery may be associated with PTD by affecting maternal vascular health. Using data from the Pregnancy Outcomes and Community Health (POUCH) study, we included 2018 non-Hispanic White and 743

2716. Epidemiology and causes of preterm birth. (Abstract)

Epidemiology and causes of preterm birth. This paper is the first in a three-part series on preterm birth, which is the leading cause of perinatal morbidity and mortality in developed countries. Infants are born preterm at less than 37 weeks' gestational age after: (1) spontaneous labour with intact membranes, (2) preterm premature rupture of the membranes (PPROM), and (3) labour induction or caesarean delivery for maternal or fetal indications. The frequency of preterm births is about 12-13 (...) % in the USA and 5-9% in many other developed countries; however, the rate of preterm birth has increased in many locations, predominantly because of increasing indicated preterm births and preterm delivery of artificially conceived multiple pregnancies. Common reasons for indicated preterm births include pre-eclampsia or eclampsia, and intrauterine growth restriction. Births that follow spontaneous preterm labour and PPROM-together called spontaneous preterm births-are regarded as a syndrome resulting
