Interventional immunology in diseases of premature babies
- Years funded:
- 2015 - 2018
Prematurity is the leading cause of infant death, with survival as low as 30% in those born before 28 weeks.
This study aims to better understand causes of death and disability in premature babies, such as the devastating heart and lung conditions known as bronchopulmonary dysplasia and pulmonary hypertension. In this way it is hoped that this study will help improve medical care for our tiniest patients to offer them and their families new hope.
