ECCLIPPxTM - EleCtriCaL Impedance Prediction of Preterm birth by spectroscopy of the cerviX
The ECCLIPPxTM project is a new research study, based in Sheffield, investigating the prediction of preterm birth. 8% of all births in the UK occur early, before 37 weeks’ gestation. We aim to assess whether a new test (impedance spectroscopy) can reliably identify women at high risk of premature delivery, so that we can offer them treatment to prolong pregnancy.Read more »
