Three major Ohio universities and four hospitals have joined in a new research collaborative aimed at finding the unknown causes of premature birth.  The March of Dimes says the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine and Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center are among the partners in the program. 

Dr. Joe Leigh Simpson, Senior Vice President of Research and Global Programs for the March of Dimes, said a great deal of work has been done trying to decrease the frequency of preterm birth and there have been some successes.
