STOPPIT-2: An open randomised trial of the Arabin pessary to prevent preterm birth in twin pregnancy, with health economics and acceptability

This study aims to determine whether the Arabin cervical pessary prevents preterm birth in women with a twin pregnancy and a short cervix. Women with a twin pregnancy are at high risk of preterm labour. More information about this study can be found here.

We have completed recruitment for STOPPIT2 and all data are currently being analysed. We hope to be able to share the results of the study with you early next year.
