Study Description

Preterm birth is a multifactorial condition defined as birth less than 37 weeks of gestation. This study aimed to identify early pregnancy biomarkers from maternal genome-wide and transcriptome-wide data of women experiencing two types of spontaneous PTB (sPTB): spontaneous preterm birth (SPTB) and preterm premature rupture of membranes (PPROM). Whole blood samples were obtained from women with singleton pregnancies (N=567) recruited at the Liverpool Women’s Hospital at 16 and 20 weeks of gestation. Women with a previous history of sPTB pregnancies <34 weeks were categorised on their index pregnancy outcome as spontaneous preterm birth (SPTB) and preterm premature rupture of membranes (PPROM) or high-risk term control (HTERM, ≥37 weeks). Women with no history of SPTB/PPROM and delivered at term were LTERM (≥39 weeks of gestation). DNA was genotyped on the UK Biobank Axiom™ array (Applied Biosystems™, Thermo Fisher Scientific) and RNA who processed using the Clariom™ D Human assay (Thermo Fisher Scientific). Genome-wide association analysis, differential expression ... (Show More)
