Impact of periconceptual vaginal microbiota on women's risk of preterm birth

This prospective case-cohort study aims to use broad-range 16S rRNA gene PCR and deep sequencing to compare the species diversity and richness of the vaginal microbiota sampled close to the time of conception in women with spontaneous preterm birth (SPTB) versus term delivery. Approximately 1,100 HIV-negative Kenyan women will be enrolled prior to conception from preconception clinics at the Discordant Couples Center at Kenyatta National Hospital in Nairobi, Kenya.
