Progestogens for Prevention of Preterm Birth

This slide set is based on a comparative effectiveness review (CER) Effectiveness of Progestogens for Prevention of Preterm Birth, which was developed by the Vanderbilt Evidence-based Practice Center for the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) under Contract No. 290-2007-10065-I and is available online at www.effectivehealthcare.ahrq.gov/pretermbirth.cfm.

CERs are comprehensive systematic reviews of the literature that usually compare two or more types of treatment, such as different drugs or adding a second drug to usual care for the same disease. The literature included in this review was identified in searches for trials and studies that explicitly evaluated the impact of any formulation of progestogen used to prevent preterm birth in groups of women at risk. Searches were conducted for studies published from January 1996 through October 2011.
