Pre-term Birth: Unraveling the Mystery of the Vaginal Flora

As part of McMaster University Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology’s Grand Rounds, this interesting talk will given in a couple of weeks by Dr. Alan Bocking, Chief of Obstetrics & Gynecology Mount Sinai Hospital, University of Toronto. Although it’s a bit early (7:30 am) I suspect that it will be very informative and enlightening. There will be coffee etc. and everyone is welcome to attend: Wednesday, November 9th, 2011 in HSC 1A5.

    Great talk about the possible use of probiotics as preventative treatment of pre-term birth due to bacterial vaginosis. The most interesting for me was the differences in cytokines produced from placental tissue of male vs. female fetuses!
