Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Saliva specimens were collected approximately every 6 hours from day 280 to day 294 by 16 women who labored on day 294. There was a normal rise in the mean saliva estriol/progesterone ratio in the six who went into labor spontaneously but no change in the 10 whose labor was induced.
