Providers: Who is at Risk for Preterm Birth?

Because Knowing Makes a Difference

Predict Early with the PreTRM® Test for Risk Management.

There’s something you can do to help your patient if she is at increased risk for preterm birth. Take action early, put interventions in place, and help her prepare.

Since every pregnancy is different, you can find out her personal risk of delivering early through a simple blood test done as early as 19 weeks that measures proteins associated with preterm birth.
The proteins cover pathways associated with preterm birth, such as inflammation, hemorrhage, stress, uterine over-distention, and others.
These predictive biomarkers were discovered in the landmark PAPR Study – Proteomic Assessment of Preterm Risk – a large, contemporary, multisite, all-comer study entirely representative of the U.S. pregnant population. This is the largest study of its kind and included 5,501 women.
