About the PreTRM® Test
The PreTRM® test is the only clinically-validated blood test that provides an early and individual risk prediction for spontaneous preterm birth in asymptomatic, singleton pregnancies. The PreTRM® test can help physicians identify, as early as 19 weeks of gestation, which women are at increased risk for premature delivery, enabling more informed clinical decisions based on each woman’s individual risk.
