Brain injury in the premature born infant: stem cell regeneration research network

Project description

Advancing stem cell therapy for preterm babies born with brain injuries

Neonatal encephalopathy is a term encompassing any pathology of the central nervous system caused by brain injury in new-born babies. Encephalopathy of prematurity refers to those pathologies specifically associated with preterm birth. A remarkable spectrum of developmental events occurs during the last half of pregnancy. Not surprisingly, brain abnormalities in survivors of preterm birth display a complicated combination of developmental and non-developmental disturbances that have chronic impact on babies’ survival and quality of life. For example, about one fourth of all cases of cerebral palsy are associated with preterm birth. The ambitious five-year EU-funded PREMSTEM project brings together 15 partners from Europe and Australia to speed the development of stem cell therapy for preterm infants. Success will be life-changing for millions of babies and their families.
