Boost Brittle Bones Before Birth (BOOSTB4) is a research study investigating the possibility of using stem cell therapy as treatment for severe OI. The treatment involves transplanting stem cells into the baby affected with OI during pregnancy or soon after birth. The main aim of the BOOSTB4 clinical trial is to test whether the treatment is safe and effective. To find out more click on the links below.

The trial is now open in Sweden where the Karolinska Institutet is the first of our European centres to begin recruiting patients. The post-natal group is now closed and we are unable to recruit any more post-natal participants, and the pre-natal group is still currently paused.
