Vaginal progesterone gel may improve infant outcomes and...

LIVINGSTON, NJ October 2, 2007 For the first time, data show a positive association between the use of vaginal progesterone and infants overall health at birth.

  • Only one out of six (16%) newborns of mothers treated with vaginal progesterone gel needed to be admitted to neonatal intensive care units compared to one out of two (52%) newborns of mothers treated with placebo (p-value of 0.016); and

  • Infants born to mothers treated with vaginal progesterone gel who were admitted to intensive care units spent on average only one day in intensive care compared to more than two weeks for those babies of mothers who received placebo (p-value of 0.013).
