Efficacy of palivizumab prophylaxis on the frequency of RSV-associated lower respiratory tract infections in preterm infants: determination of the ideal target population for prophylaxis.

Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) prophylaxis in high-risk infants is an effective intervention for the prevention of severe disease. The aim of this study was to determine the ideal target preterm po...

Respiratory syncytial virus-neutralizing serum antibody titers in infants following palivizumab prophylaxis with an abbreviated dosing regimen.

Monthly injections of palivizumab during the respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) season in at-risk infants reduces RSV-associated hospitalizations. However, the additive effect of naturally acquired imm...

Product review on the monoclonal antibody palivizumab for prevention of respiratory syncytial virus infection.

Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) accounts for about 20% of all respiratory infections in children below the age of 5 years. It is associated with up to 63% of all acute respiratory infections and up...

Systematic review of the safety and efficacy of palivizumab among infants and young children with cystic fibrosis.

Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is a common pathogen in infants with cystic fibrosis (CF). The use of palivizumab prophylaxis for RSV infection as the standard of care for infants with CF remains co...

Efficacy of pharmacologic closure of patent ductus arteriosus in small-for-gestational-age extremely preterm infants.

Optimal management of the patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) in preterm infants remains controversial. Therefore, studies identifying infants who are most likely to benefit from PDA treatment are needed.

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.
