​Providers: Who is at risk for Preterm Birth?


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.

​6% of ​sPTBs are detected through short cervix*19

​11.1% of sPTBs are predicted by prior sPTB3

​50% of sPTBs happen to women with no known risk factors1

*Statistics reflective of singleton pregnancies; percentages are computed using data from specified resources


The PreTRM Test for Risk Management provides accurate, early, individualized risk prediction for singleton pregnancies. The test provides the patient's personal risk prediction, i.e., % risk spontaneous preterm birth (sPTB) before 37 weeks of gestation.

Predicting Early gives you the POWER and TIME to make a difference.  Being able to begin an individualized care plan early can help you address her risk.

Preterm Birth is still our greatest obstetrical/neonatal problem. We can do better.
