Table 3 Multivariate logistic regression of potential predictors of intra-amniotic infection and imminent spontaneous preterm deliverya

From: Plasma inflammatory and immune proteins as predictors of intra-amniotic infection and spontaneous preterm delivery in women with preterm labor: a retrospective study

Predictors Odds ratios 95% Confidence interval P-value
Intra-amniotic infection
 Early gestational age at sampling (≤ 29.0 weeks) 3.212 0.909–11.354 0.070
 Very high serum CRP level (≥ 11.2 mg/L) 3.459 0.937–12.770 0.063
 High plasma interleukin-6 level (≥ 4.8 pg/mL) 4.573 1.184–17.661 0.027
 Short cervical length (≤ 20.6 mm) 2.492 0.733–8.472 0.144
Imminent preterm delivery
 Older age (≥ 33 years) 1.841 0.593–5.716 0.291
 Multiparity 3.888 1.242–12.175 0.020
 High serum CRP level (≥ 3.5 mg/L) 5.275 1.145–24.299 0.033
 High plasma interleukin-6 level (≥ 4.8 pg/mL) 6.515 2.114–20.078 0.001
 Short cervical length (≤ 20.0 mm) 8.334 2.591–26.812 < 0.001
