Trends in Utilization of Outpatient Respiratory Syncytial Virus Prophylaxis with Palivizumab among Medicaid- and Commercially Insured Infants.

Palivizumab is indicated for the prevention of respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infection in high-risk children. Previous palivizumab utilization studies examined prior authorization claims but did n...

Amplitude-Integrated EEG and Brain Sparing in Preterm Small-for-Gestational-Age Infants.

Preterm small-for-gestational-age (SGA) infants are at risk for a high mortality rate and impaired cognitive development. Only a few studies have focused on amplitude-integrated EEG (aEEG) in preterm ...

Body composition in preterm infants with intrauterine growth restriction: a cohort study.

The comparison of body composition parameters between the small for gestational age (SGA) and appropriate for gestational age (AGA) at term, 1, 3 and 5 months corrected ages in very preterm infants.

Palivizumab for prophylaxis of respiratory syncytial virus infections in preterm neonates.

Prescriptive birth weight charts can improve the prediction of adverse outcomes in very preterm infants who are small for gestational age.

We compared three anthropometric charts to determine which provided the best predictions for adverse outcomes in very preterm small for gestational age infants to address a lack of consensus on this s...

Effect of Palivizumab on Later Recurrent Wheezing in Preterm Infants

The hypothesis of the present study is that the prophylaxis with palivizumab to prevent the severe RS virus infection during the infancy among preterm infants may reduce the risk of subseq...

Electrogastrography in Small for Gestational Age Preterm Infants

The purpose of this study is to determine whether small for gestational preterm infants, have delayed or decrease gastric motility compared to appropriate for gestational age preterm infan...

Palivizumab for Prevention of Severe Respiratory Syncytial Virus Infection in Russian Children

100 Russian children of 2 years of age and less with risk factors (preterm, and/or with heart and lung problems) will receive palivizumab (Synagis) 15 mg/kg intramuscularly as a prophylaxi...

A Study to Assess the Safety and Effectiveness of Palivizumab Administered to Children at High Risk of Severe Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) Infection in the Russian Federation and the Republic of Belarus

This is a Phase 3b, prospective, multicenter, open-label, non-controlled study to assess the safety and effectiveness of immunoprophylaxis with the intramuscular (IM) administration of the...

"Palivizumab Therapy for RSV-bronchiolitis"

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A severe, sometimes fatal, disorder of adipose tissue occurring chiefly in preterm or debilitated infants suffering from an underlying illness and manifested by a diffuse, nonpitting induration of the affected tissue. The skin becomes cold, yellowish, mottled, and inflexible.

Trophoblastic growth, which may be gestational or nongestational in origin. Trophoblastic neoplasia resulting from pregnancy is often described as gestational trophoblastic disease to distinguish it from germ cell tumors which frequently show trophoblastic elements, and from the trophoblastic differentiation which sometimes occurs in a wide variety of epithelial cancers. Gestational trophoblastic growth has several forms, including HYDATIDIFORM MOLE and CHORIOCARCINOMA. (From Holland et al., Cancer Medicine, 3d ed, p1691)

An infant having a birth weight lower than expected for its gestational age.

The age of the conceptus, beginning from the time of FERTILIZATION. In clinical obstetrics, the gestational age is often estimated as the time from the last day of the last MENSTRUATION which is about 2 weeks before OVULATION and fertilization.

An anticoagulant that acts by inhibiting the synthesis of vitamin K-dependent coagulation factors.
