Preterm Birth Screening: What Does Really Make Sense? Abstract. Spontaneous preterm birth is a syndrome triggered by multiple mechanisms. In view of the pathophysiological heterogeneity of preterm birth, a single biomarker cannot show the required high negative and positive predictive values. From a clinical point of view, anamnesis, sonographic measurement of cervical length, and placental alpha-microglobulin-1 (PAMG-1) testing from cervico-vaginal secretion are established. Further prospective, large-scale longitudinal studies must validate the combined use of new biomarkers.
