Human parechovirus particularly genotype 3 (HPeV3), is an emerging infection affecting predominantly young infants. The potential for neurological sequelae in a vulnerable subset is increasingly appar...
The human parechovirus (HPeV) has emerged as a pathogen causing sepsis-like presentations in young infants, but there is a lack of data on HPeV presentations requiring intensive care support. We aimed...
Preterm infants and critically ill neonates are predisposed to nosocomial infections as sepsis. Moreover, these infants acquire commensal bacteria, which might become potentially harming. On-ward tran...
There is paucity of normative data on serum C-reactive protein (CRP) in neonates. In Part I of study, we compared CRP in healthy neonates (from 28°/7 weeks to 416/7 weeks of gestation) between va...
Background Almost 30% of the premature infants have low body weight and bone mineral density due to prematurity. There is no consensus of screening premature neonates for metabolic bone disease; there...
From last decades, because of lacking the powerful quantitative methods, such as real-time qPCR, there is no environmental monitoring data about enterovirus transmission. If the major tra...
It shall be investigated whether ventilated neonates and infants with a remifentanyl based analgesia and sedation can be extubated faster after discontinuation of the opioid infusion compa...

The goal of this project is to identify neonates who are predisposed to Necrotizing Enterocolitis (NEC). We will determine the effectiveness of non-invasive measures as well as biochemical...
A genus in the family PICORNAVIRIDAE infecting humans and rodents. The type species is Human parechovirus.
Procedures and programs that facilitate the development or skill acquisition in infants and young children who have disabilities, who are at risk for developing disabilities, or who are gifted. It includes programs that are designed to prevent handicapping conditions in infants and young children and family-centered programs designed to affect the functioning of infants and children with special needs.

A form of gram-negative meningitis that tends to occur in neonates, in association with anatomical abnormalities (which feature communication between the meninges and cutaneous structures) or as OPPORTUNISTIC INFECTIONS in association with IMMUNOLOGIC DEFICIENCY SYNDROMES. In premature neonates the clinical presentation may be limited to ANOREXIA; VOMITING; lethargy; or respiratory distress. Full-term infants may have as additional features FEVER; SEIZURES; and bulging of the anterior fontanelle. (From Menkes, Textbook of Child Neurology, 5th ed, pp398-400)
