Simple test to predict if pregnant women will give birth prematurely

Babies born early run a greater risk of serious complications. The researchers at the Sahlgrenska Academy have now developed a method to predict if pregnant women with preterm contractions will give birth within seven days. The method offers new possibilities to delay delivery and prepare care for the premature baby.
