Little heartbeats raises for UCLH heal membranes project

Team photo

UCLH have a amazing research project which plans to develop a way to heal the amniotic membranes after they rupture.

We want you to support us, for all babies born premature, and for all babies born too soon due to PPROM which stands for Premature Rupture of Membranes.

We need over £30k to get them to the full amount needed for this amazing project. If you can be part of the team to get us here please join our team, each penny will be added to this.

This would be one of my personal goals in memory of Sinead Speakman my first born whom we lost to PPROM.

More details on what UCLH the charity does, read below;-

UCLH Charity provides support for patients, staff and medical research at UCL Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

Six out of 100 babies in the UK are born prematurely, before the 37 week of pregnancy. Babies may be born early because a women goes into labour spontaneously. But sometimes babies need to be born early because they are having problems in the womb, such as poor growth for example. Improvements in the care of newborns mean that most premature babies survive and grow up normally despite being born so early. However some babies have long term health problems as a result of being born premature.

Our understanding of premature birth is limited and that is why more research is vital. We research why some women go into labour early by studying the role of infection, the response to infection and the natural antibiotics in the vagina. We are developing therapies that could reduce a woman’s risk of going into premature labour. We are testing out new treatments to help babies grow in the womb.

Our Research

Your donation will help to support our current research programme, which is:

- Developing tests to improve prediction of premature births (£50 per sample)

- Analysing the levels of bacteria in urine (£75 per sample)

- Examining immune blood cells in women who have their baby premature (£150 per sample)

- Developing new drug and stem cell treatments that could heal the amniotic membrane when it ruptures early (£200 per sample)

- Testing the response of the amniotic membrane to repetitive stretching to find out why they rupture early in some women (£500 per sample)

- Testing new drugs to help small babies grow better in the womb (£1000 per experiment)

Each of these studies involves carrying out tests on 50 to 100 women.
