Postnatal growth in preterm infants during the first year of life: A population-based cohort study in China.

In preterm infants (i.e. the gestational age less than 37 weeks), postnatal growth remains a concern. This study used multicenter longitudinal data from China's Under 5 Child Nutrition and Health Surv...

Neurodevelopmental outcome of late-preterm infants: A pragmatic review

The number of late-preterm births (34^{0/7} to 36^{6/7} weeks of gestation at birth) has steadily increased over recent years. Recent reports suggest that late-preterm infants are at an increased risk...

Psychomotor development in late preterms at two years of age: a comparison with full-term newborn infants using two different instruments.

Late preterm infants currently constitute 70% of preterm infant births. They present greater comorbidity, including neurodevelopment disorders, which may not manifest until the school age.

Immature megalin expression in the preterm neonatal kidney is associated with urinary loss of vitamin carrier proteins.

Vitamin A and D deficiencies are common in preterm infants. Megalin is an endocytic receptor in the proximal tubule, which reabsorbs retinol-binding protein (RBP) and vitamin D-binding protein (VDBP)....

Comparative study of neupsychological functions in preterm and term childrens at eight years old.

Monitoring of extremely preterm infants of school age reveals poor development of neuropsychological functions, compared to their full term peers.

Gut Microbiota of Preterm Infants and Full-term Infants at Early Life

The aim of this study is to obtain a longitudinal view of the gut microbial establishment of a cohort of 51 preterm (PT) infants compared to 50 full-term (FT) infants from birth to 90 days...

Predictors of Sepsis in Ex-Preterm Infants

The aims of this study are to: - Assess whether ex-preterm infants have a persistently immature immune system, which may decrease their ability to respond to infections, when they...

Bovine Colostrum for Preterm Newborns

Feeding intolerance is a common problem in very preterm infants due to their immature digestive system. This intolerance extends the time to full enteral feeding and thereby also prolongs ...

Probiotics and Intestinal Microbiome in Preterm Infants

The gut microbiome plays a significant role in balancing the inflammatory system in the immature gut. A breakdown in this balance with altered colonization of the microbiota in very low bi...

Cerebral Blood Flow Parameters and Neurobehavioral Development in Infants at Term Age

Although several studies have contrasted the hemodynamics of cerebral arteries using cranial Doppler ultrasound between full-term and preterm infants, the assessments were mostly conducted...

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.

Persons who have experienced prolonged survival of HIV infection. This includes the full spectrum of untreated, HIV-infected long-term asymptomatics to those with AIDS who have survived due to successful treatment.

Surface glycoproteins on platelets which have a key role in hemostasis and thrombosis such as platelet adhesion and aggregation. Many of these are receptors.

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)

Drugs that prevent preterm labor and immature birth by suppressing uterine contractions (TOCOLYSIS). Agents used to delay premature uterine activity include magnesium sulfate, beta-mimetics, oxytocin antagonists, calcium channel inhibitors, and adrenergic beta-receptor agonists. The use of intravenous alcohol as a tocolytic is now obsolete.
