Can antenatal corticosteroids prevent preterm infant death and morbidity in low-resource settings?
Antenatal corticosteroids have been shown to be effective in preventing preterm infant death in high-resource settings. However, a population-based study published in 2015 showed otherwise in low-resource countries. This video focuses on the results of a clinical trial coordinated by WHO. This study demonstrated the efficacy of antenatal corticosteroids in low-resource countries, provided minimal clinical standards are met.
“The WHO ACTION Trials Collaborators”. This is an international group of researchers coordinated by WHO to implement the trial. The list of names includes approximately 100 people.
