  • Cleveland-Lorain-Elyria, OH (1888PressRelease) January 13, 2011 - Cervilenz Inc. is currently introducing its innovative medical device - CerviLenz® - to the obstetrics market with great success. The first and only device of its kind, CerviLenz is a simple, low cost, disposable medical device that measures vaginal cervical length objectively. A short cervix during pregnancy is the best predictor of preterm birth - a significant public health problem and the leading cause of infant death.

    Recently reported evidence that progesterone therapy can reduce the risk of preterm birth in women with a short cervix creates a very large market for cervical length measurements during pregnancy. Obstetricians and midwives need an accurate, immediate way to measure the cervix, and CerviLenz meets that need. It's quick, easy, and cost effective.

    "This is an exciting time for CerviLenz, and we look forward to sharing our company story at OneMedForum," said Dean Koch, President and CEO. "There couldn't be a better time for CerviLenz, given the emerging promise of progesterone therapy to prevent preterm birth in women with a short cervix. CerviLenz can help clinicians identify women who may have a short cervix and, therefore, may benefit from therapy or consultation with maternal-fetal medicine specialists. Cervilenz is proud to be part of the solution to this devastating risk to pregnant women."

    Preterm birth affects over 12% of pregnancies in the United States. The Institute of Medicine estimates that the economic cost of preterm birth in the United States is more than $26 billion annually.
