BackgroundIdentification of women who will deliver preterm may reduce infant morbidity and mortality. In heterogeneous populations, fetal fibronectin (fFN) and interleukin-6 are excellent predictors of women who will not deliver within two weeks. African-Americans are at higher risk for preterm birth than Caucasians. This study compares the diagnostic utility of fFN and interleukin-6 in cervicovaginal fluid (CVF) to predict preterm birth within 14days of sampling in African-American and Caucasian women.
