Premature birth

A premature birth is a birth that takes place more than three weeks before the baby's estimated due date. In other words, a premature birth is one that occurs before the start of the 37th week of pregnancy. Premature babies, especially those born very early, often have complicated medical problems. Typically, complications of prematurity vary. But the earlier your baby is born, the higher the risk of complications.

<p> Chlamydia is one of the most common bacterial sexually transmitted diseases (STD) in the world and can cause serious complications if not treated. Screening for, diagnosing, and treating chlamydia is very important in preventing long-term complications and spread of the infection to others. <a href="/documents/tests/109/Chlamydia.en.pdf" target="_blank">Read more</a> </p>

<p> Chlamydia is a genus of pathogenic bacteria that are obligate intracellular parasites. C. trachomatis includes three human biovars, but Serovars D-K – cause urethritis, pelvic inflammatory disease, ectopic pregnancy, neonatal pneumonia, and neonatal conjunctivitis. Chlamydia is one of the most common bacterial sexually transmitted diseases (STD) in the world and can cause serious complications if not treated.

<p> Herpes simplex virus (HSV)-1 and HSV-2 are members of the Alphaherpesviridae subfamily. HSV is an enveloped virus with a capsid containing viral DNA. Although HSV-1 and HSV-2 are closely related, the 2 viruses are serologically and genetically distinct. </p> <p> HSV-1 and -2 are common causes of dermal and genital infections; however, in some cases, infection with HSV may result in central nervous system (CNS) disease that is considered a medical emergency. HSV infection of the CNS may result in encephalitis (more commonly associated with HSV-1) or meningitis (more commonly associated with HSV-2). HSV-1 encephalitis is more common in adults, and HSV-2 encephalitis is more common in neonates. <a href="/documents/tests/122/HSV.engl.pdf" target="_blank">Read more</a> </p>
