The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of oropharyngeal colostrum administration in the incidence of late-onset clinical and proven sepsis and in concentrations of immunoglobulin A (IgA) in very-low-birth-weight (VLBW) infants.

Low coverage of Skilled Birth Attendance (SBA) is one of the major drivers of maternal mortality in many low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) including Ethiopia. We conducted a cluster-randomized ...
Recent investigations noted noninferiority in short-course antimicrobial treatments following source control in abdominal infections. We set out to investigate noninferiority of a short and fixed (24-...
Randomized, double blind, parallel groups, sham-controlled trial.
Prospective, randomized controlled trial.
Infections are the main causes of morbidity and mortality in very low birth weight infants. Use of mother's own breast milk in feeding these babies is associated with a decreased risk of a...
The purpose of this project is to increase the serum immunological defenses of premature infants less then 32 weeks of gestation by administrating colostrum in the oropharyngeal mucosa ver...
Colostrum is the first milk secreted by the mother when the tight junctions of mammary epithelium open, allowing the cellular transport of a multitude of components and immunological prote...
Enteral administration of immune-modulating nutrients such as glutamine, omega-3 fatty acids, selenium, and antioxidants has been suggested to reduce infections and improve recovery from c...
The aim was to assess the ability of bovine colostrum concentrate to reduce the incidence of late-onset sepsis episodes and necrotizing enterocolitis in artificially fed preterm neonates a...
Work consisting of a clinical trial involving one or more test treatments, at least one control treatment, specified outcome measures for evaluating the studied intervention, and a bias-free method for assigning patients to the test treatment. The treatment may be drugs, devices, or procedures studied for diagnostic, therapeutic, or prophylactic effectiveness. Control measures include placebos, active medicine, no-treatment, dosage forms and regimens, historical comparisons, etc. When randomization using mathematical techniques, such as the use of a random numbers table, is employed to assign patients to test or control treatments, the trial is characterized as a RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED TRIAL.
Work consisting of a clinical trial that involves at least one test treatment and one control treatment, concurrent enrollment and follow-up of the test- and control-treated groups, and in which the treatments to be administered are selected by a random process, such as the use of a random-numbers table.
Works about a study where participants are assigned to a treatment, procedure, or intervention by methods that are not random. Non-randomized clinical trials are sometimes referred to as quasi-experimental clinical trials or non-equivalent control group designs.
Works about randomized clinical trials that compare interventions in clinical settings and which look at a range of effectiveness outcomes and impacts.
Strategy for the analysis of RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED TRIALS AS TOPIC that compares patients in the groups to which they were originally randomly assigned.
