Abstract

Both the concentration of plasma copper and fetal membrane collagen of preterm's mothers were lower than that of the full-term's. It can confer that the deficient copper status could lead to immature collagen in fetal membrane which induce PROM and have preterm birth finally. More work need to be done in this field.
