Gene expression in preterm deliveries

Preterm neonates from resource-constraint population have a higher risk of mortality, mostly due to the lack of advance neonatal care. Early identification of pregnancies at risk for preterm birth would help mitigating this risk. Gene expression profiling in pregnancy is a powerful tool to detect altered gene expression. Keywords of most commonly observed biological pathways associated with gene expression profiles in preterm birth are shown in this word cloud. From Brummaier et al.
