"A simple treatment — a vaginal gel containing a hormone — significantly reduces premature births among pregnant women who are at high risk because of a problem with the cervix, government researchers reported yesterday. Many factors can lead to premature birth, but the study targets one subset: the thousands of women who develop an unusually shortened cervix, the gateway to the uterus." (04/07/11)
