The objective of this study was to test the hypothesis that diverse risk variables including infections during the index pregnancy independently increase the risk of preterm premature rupture of amniotic membranes (PROM) and preterm delivery without PROM.
A case-control design was used to study women 15-45 years old who had preterm PROM, fullterm PROM or preterm without PROM and were singly matched by age race and parity to controls who delivered fullterm infants.
