Type of Research Project
- Clinical Project with Laboratory work
What is the background of the project?
There are different reasons of premature rupture of maternal envelopes with very different clinical consequences. The most frequent reason is immunopathological inflammatory response induced either by infectious stimuli or by DAMP release. This inflammation is addressed by our long term scientific effort which is based on the detection of various biomarkers in amniotic fluid and cord blood by immunoassays and flow cytometry.
What is the aim of the project?
To better understand to the pathophysiology of maternal envelope rupture.
What techniques and methods are used?
Flow cytometry, immunochemistry, ELISA, Luminex.
