premature birth research
Tommy’s researchers are finding out if total plasma exchange (TPE) is beneficial for women with severe liver disease.
Tommy’s researchers want to find out what the risks are in intrahepatic cholestasis pregnancies with lower levels of bile acids.
Our researchers have lowered the threshold at which women are diagnosed with gestational diabetes. We want to see how this affects pregnancy outcomes.
We want to identify which women and babies are at risk of complications associated with hypertension. To do this, we are using MRI scans to detect abnormalities.
Our four research centres have collaborated to create a single biobank to inform more life-saving research and studies
Researchers in our Edinburgh centre are working on a new, more accurate test for predicting premature birth.
Tommy’s is setting up a platform that will help researchers study premature birth more effectively.
Our researchers are helping to test a cheap, easy-to-use method to predict the risk of premature birth in areas lacking healthcare resources. The hope is that this test will help to prevent deaths and disability in 3.6 million babies every year.
Our researchers are comparing 3 different ways of treating a short cervix during pregnancy, to help stop babies being born too early.
Scientists are working to find out how chronic hypertension – high blood pressure before becoming pregnant – can make pregnancy more risky.
