Laboratory assessment of fetal lung maturity lecithin sphingomyelin ratio vs cortisol and foam test assays



Laboratory assessment of fetal lung maturity lecithin sphingomyelin ratio vs cortisol and foam test assays



Clinical Chemistry 23(12): 2250-2253



Values for amniotic fluid cortisol correlated fairly well with L/S [lecithin/sphingomyelin] ratio, but the latter was the better test for assessing fetal lung maturity. [Amniocentesis was performed in humans to determine fetal pulmonary maturity.].
