Could This Be The Answer?

I was reading an article today that suggested researchers are on their way to helping premature infants lungs develop faster. It has something to do with calcium receptors, I am not going to pretend to know what that truly does, but could we be on our way to seeing all those tiny 25 week gestation babies survive with minimal effects? I know the research is still rather raw and it will take time to get medication approved and begin distributing it but maybe this is the answer to so many parents/babies dreams. I truly hope they continue their research and are able to do this as quickly and safely as possible as this could truly be a miracle in the making.

would not that be awesome if that turned out to be a way to help these tiny babies. I have a friend who had twins 11 week early. They are fine now, but just knowing that doctors have a viable treatment for under-developed lungs would be tremendous.

Yes, it would be great. Now if we could get the ball rolling on it!
