BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: Observational studies relating 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D) and pregnancy outcomes have reported conflicting results. The aim was to assess maternal 25(OH)D status and its association with pregnancy outcomes. A prospective observational study was carried out in Guangzhou city (23 ºN), China. SUBJECTS/METHODS: Pregnant women (n=2960) and healthy controls (n=100) were recruited at a teaching hospital. Maternal 25(OH)D levels were measured at 16-20-week gestation...

BACKGROUND: Vitamin C is involved in the synthesis and degradation of collagen and is important for maintenance of the chorioamniotic membranes. Inadequate availability of ascorbic acid during pregnancy has been proposed as a risk factor for premature rupture of the chorioamniotic membranes (PROM). OBJECTIVE: The objective of the study was to evaluate the effectiveness of 100 mg vitamin C/d in preventing PROM. DESIGN: A controlled double-blind trial was performed...

The precise etiologic mechanisms involved in the premature rupture of membranes (PROM) during pregnancy, the main cause of preterm delivery worldwide, are unknown. Previous studies have shown that: (a) the rupture of chorioamniotic membranes is related to an imbalance between synthesis and degradation of collagen induced by the overexpression/activity of various matrix metalloproteinases (MMP); (b) during human labor and delivery the expression of prolactin receptors (PRL-R) increases in chorioamniotic membranes, decidua and placenta; (c) prolactin (PRL) can influence the synthesis of prostaglandins, the expression of some MMP (MMP-2, MMP-9 and decysin) and tissue inhibitors of MMP in general; (d) vitamin C deficiency induces the expression/activity of extracellular MMP and is considered a risk factor for PROM; and (e) vitamin C potentiates the dopamine-mediated inhibition of PRL in rats...
