From survival to a vision of lifelong health
Survival rates for premature babies have increased dramatically over the last 40 years, and researchers are now focusing on developing neonatal care to minimise the health risks of starting life prematurely.
Eliott Landgren is one of the new survivors and is a lively 11-year-old at secondary school. Had he been born 20-30 years earlier he would probably not have survived as it was just not possible to save such tiny premature babies in those days. Meet Eliott and read more about how researchers hope to realise their vision of lifelong health for those born prematurely in our special feature on premature babies.
