ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT01098214
Recruitment Status :
(Decided not to pursue study at this time. Resources not available)
To provide rigorous, detailed normative data for diagnostics and comparative studies, to determine relationships between cytokine levels (and other biomarkers) and clinical data, and gain further insight into the pro-/anti-inflammatory cytokine profile of normal midtrimester amniotic fluid.
Amniotic fluid samples from patients undergoing amniocentesis with an apparently normal pregnancy will have a small aliquot of fluid stored for future analysis, including the cytokine profile, proteomics, metabolomics, etc.
