Brief description Interleukin-1 (IL-1) is a potent inflammatory protein involved in many inflammatory disorders, including preterm birth (PTB). Blocking the actions of IL-1 in pregnancies at risk of delivering preterm may protect the fetus from PTB and the long-term harm of exposure to inflammation before birth. Using four different models of antenatal inflammation, we will explore the use of a new IL-1 inhibitor to see if it blocks inflammation ‘in utero’ and improve neonatal health and development.
