London: It may soon be possible to stop babies dying in the womb, thanks to a measurement to spot small placentas that can act as an early warning system.
"I hope that the EPV test becomes routine for pregnant women," Dr Kliman added. The researchers believe that their work may help monitor pregnancies more carefully. Patrick O`Brien, of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, suggested that the proposition had potential, saying: "It would be most useful if the calculation could be made earlier on in the pregnancy - later on we have a good idea of the health of the baby just by looking at it. I would like to see this as a study carried out on a large group of women to see if it does flag up problems at the outset. It certainly looks interesting." ANI
