Premature birth test being trialled


Premature birth test being trialled

Scientists are trialling a blood test that may predict whether a pregnant woman will give birth prematurely. Preliminary results, published in the journal Science, suggest it is accurate in up to 80% of high-risk women.

The team, at Stanford University, in the US, say it is also as accurate as ultra-sound scans at predicting due dates.

However, there is still far more work to do before it could be used clinically.
