Multi-Omic Microbiome Study-Pregnancy Initiative (MOMS-PI)
|Study ID||Alternative Stable ID||Type|
The Vaginal Microbiome Consortium team at Virginia Commonwealth University has conducted the Multi-Omic Microbiome Study: Pregnancy Initiative (MOMS-PI) in collaboration with the Global Alliance to Prevent Prematurity and Stillbirth (GAPPS) to better understand how microbiome and host profiles change throughout pregnancy and influence the establishment of the nascent microbiome in neonates. The team particularly focused on elucidation of the role of the microbiome and its components in the etiology of preterm birth, which occurs in over 10% of pregnancies and which is the leading cause of death in neonates. Samples from 1594 women and their neonates were collected throughout pregnancy, at delivery and postpartum. The group has generated a comprehensive dataset of multiple omics technologies. This longitudinal, large-scale effort was designed to provide a large-scale resource for the scientific community. The study also permits characterization of temporal dynamics of the microbiome in pregnancy and factors associated with preterm birth.
