Tocolytics were administered in 66 consecutive women in uncomplicated preterm labour with intact fetal membranes (53 singleton and 13 twin pregnancies). C-reactive protein (CRP), a marker of infection, was determined daily and used retrospectively to investigate the role of subclinical infection in preterm labour and to predict the efficacy of tocolysis and the development of a clinical perinatal infection. CRP was also determined in 66 women in uncomplicated labour at term (53 singleton and 13 twin pregnancies).

Duodenumatresie is een zeldzaam voorkomende aandoening die prenataal echografisch kan worden gediagnostiseerd, zodat door een onmiddelijke interventie postnatale complicaties kunnen worden vermeden. Typische echografische beelden zijn een 'double bubble' of een gedilateerde maag en polyhydramnion. Geassocieerde afwijkingen zoals het Down syndroom en congenitale hartafwijkingen moeten worden uitgesloten.

Three major epidemiological patterns of HIV infection have been previously described in the world. In pattern I, which occurs mainly in North America, Europe, and Australia, most cases occur in homosexual men and injecting drug users and their sex partners and offspring. Pattern II occurs mainly in sub-Saharan Africa, and increasingly in other parts of the world. Here most people acquire their infection heterosexually, perinatally from their mother, or through blood transfusion.
