Driven to end prematurity, Parsagen Diagnostics has developed rapid, non-invasive PPROM tests with high accuracy and cost efficiency.
During our interaction with mothers worldwide, we realize that many mothers lack basic medical and financial support during pregnancy. That's why we establish the Parsagen Diagnostics Mother Caring Foundation.
According to Cleveland Clinic, PROM occurs in up to 10% of all pregnancies,
while PPROM occurs in about 3% of pregnancies.
For PROM, complications are lower.
if your baby is born before 37 weeks (PPROM), they’re at higher risk for complications of being born early.
Premature rupture of membranes (PROM) refers to a patient who is beyond 37 weeks' gestation and has presented with rupture of membranes (ROM) prior to the onset of labor.
Preterm premature rupture of membranes (PPROM) is ROM prior to 37 weeks' gestation.
Spontaneous preterm rupture of the membranes (SPROM) is ROM after or with the onset of labor occurring prior to 37 weeks.
Prolonged ROM is any ROM that persists for more than 24 hours and prior to the onset of labor.
At term, programmed cell death and activation of catabolic enzymes,
such as collagenase and mechanical forces, result in ruptured membranes.
Preterm PROM occurs probably due to the same mechanisms and premature activation of these pathways.
