About the Project
Use of antenatal corticosteroids in women undergoing planned caesarean section at term or late preterm is supported by findings of improved neonatal respiratory morbidity in a limited number of randomised trials but may increase the risk of neonatal hypoglycaemia.
We are undertaking a large Health Research Council funded multicentre placebo-controlled trial to assess both the neonatal benefit and potential harm of maternal corticosteroid use prior to planned caesarean section at ≥35+0 to 39+6 weeks.
We aim to explore the effect of cost-effectiveness of this intervention as well as explore its potential health benefits.
What we are looking for in a successful applicant
To use data from the C*STEROID Trial to examine the cost-effectiveness of the use antenatal corticosteroids prior to planned caesarean section at term and late preterm gestations.
