Abstract

(Abstracted from Lancet 2016;387:2117–2124)

Preterm birth is estimated to affect between 5% and 13% of all pregnancies and is the reason for more than 50% of neonatal morbidity and 50% and 75% of neonatal mortality cases worldwide. It causes long-term physical and developmental impairment, thus having a substantial burden on families and health care costs.
