Helping Newborn Babies Breathe—European Inventor Award 2016 (07:52)

FREE PREVIEW

Curosurf is a clinical treatment for pre-term infants – born before 37 weeks of gestational age – suffering from infant respiratory distress syndrome (RDS), a life-threatening condition of the lungs. Curosurf was developed by Tore Curstedt and Bengt Robertson. Curstedt’s solution relies on a phospholipid extract of natural porcine lungs with the chemical name poractant alfa. Administered through a breathing tube and inserted into the trachea, Curosurf coats infants’ lung alveoli and reduces surface tension, thereby preventing RDS.
