Dr. Angelle Brebnor is a co-author of a multi-center study comparing methods for predicting preterm birth in women who may be in preterm labor. The study showed that a rapid bedside test for placental [alpha] microglobulin-1 performed the same as standard fetal-fibronectin testing in ruling out spontaneous preterm delivery. Because this new test is faster and less invasive, it may lead to lower rates of unnecessary hospitalizations and interventions.
