Hypoxemia and bradycardia occur frequently in preterm infants, but are incompletely understood. They are more prevalent during infections and following immunization. Data on adults suggested an increa...
Thyroid hormones are critical for growth and brain development during the newborn period and infancy. Because of delayed maturation of the hypothalamic-pituitary-thyroid axis in preterm infants, thyro...
Late-onset sepsis (LOS) in preterm infants is a leading cause of mortality and morbidity. Timely recognition and initiation of antibiotics are important factors for improved outcomes. Identification o...
Traditional measurements of vaccine coverage at specific ages can mask poor vaccine timeliness. However, optimal measurement of timing is unclear due to variations in countries' recommended vaccinatio...
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...
Neonatal Sepsis is one of the most common causes of death in preterm infants. Therefore, up to 80% of very low birth weight infants receive antibiotic therapy in their first week of life. ...
Hypoxia/bradycardia are common symptoms after vaccination of preterm infants. Adults show diurnal variations in vaccination response, due to circadian regulation of the immune system. The ...
Prospective controlled study evaluating cryocontact therapy of infantile hemangiomas of preterm infants Principal investigator: Rangmar Goelz, MD Coworkers: M Möhrle, M Moll, HM Häfner,...
The timeliness of routine childhood immunization should be an important component in measuring vaccination coverage rates especially in LMIC countries like Nigeria, yet this is overlooked....
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...
Group activities directed against VACCINATION.
Rate of VACCINATION as defined by GEOGRAPHY and or DEMOGRAPHY.
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.
