“Preterm birth remains exceptionally challenging to predict and treat because we lack a comprehensive understanding of the underlying causes that drive it. It is vital for us to understand the biology leading to preterm birth so we can better address this complex condition and reduce its devastating burden on moms and babies. This is an encouraging study because it sheds new light on this often-catastrophic outcome for moms, babies and families.”
