Intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH) remains a major complication of prematurity, affecting 20-25% of premature infants of very low birth weight. Preterm infants with IVH are at risk for developing significant complications, including posthemorrhagic hydrocephalus and seizures. Multiple studies have reported an association between the neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) in peripheral blood and outcomes after acute intracranial hemorrhage in adults. However, the prognostic value of the NLR in preterm infants, particularly those with IVH, has not been investigated previously.

One of the inflammatory factors affecting the prognosis of myocardial infarction is the high level of neutrophil count in blood. In this study, we investigated the relationship of neutrophil-to-lympho...
We conducted a meta-analysis to review the available evidence regarding the associations between peripheral blood neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) and platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio (PLR) and the pr...
Studies have indicated neutrophil/lymphocyte ratio (NLR), Platelet/Lymphocyte ratio (PLR), and platelet/neutrophils ratio (PNR) to be inflammatory markers. The correlation of these values in infants o...
Recent adult etiologic studies indicated evidence linking increased inflammatory parameters with psychiatric disorders. The neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio and platelet-lymphocyte ratio are easily obtaina...

The ratio of two odds. The exposure-odds ratio for case control data is the ratio of the odds in favor of exposure among cases to the odds in favor of exposure among noncases. The disease-odds ratio for a cohort or cross section is the ratio of the odds in favor of disease among the exposed to the odds in favor of disease among the unexposed. The prevalence-odds ratio refers to an odds ratio derived cross-sectionally from studies of prevalent cases.
The process in which the neutrophil is stimulated by diverse substances, resulting in degranulation and/or generation of reactive oxygen products, and culminating in the destruction of invading pathogens. The stimulatory substances, including opsonized particles, immune complexes, and chemotactic factors, bind to specific cell-surface receptors on the neutrophil.
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.
The ratio of alveolar ventilation to simultaneous alveolar capillary blood flow in any part of the lung. (Stedman, 25th ed)
Transplantation of stem cells collected from the peripheral blood. It is a less invasive alternative to direct marrow harvesting of hematopoietic stem cells. Enrichment of stem cells in peripheral blood can be achieved by inducing mobilization of stem cells from the BONE MARROW.
