Epidemiology of Persistent Pulmonary Hypertension of the Newborn - SCOR in Lung Biology and Diseases in Infants and Children

2014-07-23 21:56:37 | BioPortfolio

Summary

To conduct an epidemiologic study of persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn ( PPHN) infant.

Description

BACKGROUND:

The study on the epidemiology of persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn (PPHN) was a subproject within a Specialized Center of Research (SCOR) in Lung Biology and Diseases in Infants and Children. The SCOR and its subproject were awarded in December, 1991. Dollars were estimated at 20 percent of total center dollars.

DESIGN NARRATIVE:

Data from a previous study of PPHN were analyzed. The objectives were to: identify the effects of a variety of potentially adverse prenatal exposures from interview data; formulate multi-variate models of risk of PPHN to determine if smoking or use of prostaglandin inhibitors increased the risk of PPHN; explore associations of PPHN with history of illicit drug use and maternal hypoxia; examine the relationships of postnatal care and perinatal risk factors on the incidence and outcome of PPHN; test the relationships of PPHN to the biochemical presence of nicotine and drugs in neonatal urine.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A diverse group of lung diseases that affect the lung parenchyma. They are characterized by an initial inflammation of PULMONARY ALVEOLI that extends to the interstitium and beyond leading to diffuse PULMONARY FIBROSIS. Interstitial lung diseases are classified by their etiology (known or unknown causes), and radiological-pathological features.

Pathological processes involving any part of the LUNG.

Any disorder marked by obstruction of conducting airways of the lung. AIRWAY OBSTRUCTION may be acute, chronic, intermittent, or persistent.

A condition characterized by infiltration of the lung with EOSINOPHILS due to inflammation or other disease processes. Major eosinophilic lung diseases are the eosinophilic pneumonias caused by infections, allergens, or toxic agents.

Increased VASCULAR RESISTANCE in the PULMONARY CIRCULATION, usually secondary to HEART DISEASES or LUNG DISEASES.
