Researchers: Non-invasive test could predict premature births story image

LONDON (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Researchers in London say a non-invasive test could help predict if pregnant women will deliver premature babies.

Researchers at Imperial College say a simple urine test in the woman's first trimester could help reveal whether a baby will be born prematurely or have poor growth.

Scientists analyzed samples from more than 400 pregnant women and found those with certain specific molecules were at a higher risk.

Over the past decade, premature births have increased by more than 19 percent in developed nations.

More than 42 percent of those pre-term births were in the U.S.
