ONLINE COVER Mommy's Little Treasure. Prematurity is a common cause of neonatal mortality worldwide, but its causes are still poorly understood and it is often impossible to prevent. In a new State of the Art Review, Rubens et al. discuss the biology of pregnancy and known causes of premature birth, as well as the gaps in our knowledge and priorities for future research.
