Erythropoietin in Premature Infants to Prevent Encephalopathy

The main goal of this trial is to investigate whether early administration of human erythropoietin(EPO) in preterm infants improves neurodevelopmental outcome at 18 months corrected age. T...

Erythropoietin Protects Very Preterm Infants Against Necrotizing Enterocolitis

This study evaluates the effect of repeated low-dose erythropoietin (EPO) treatment on necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) in very preterm infants. Half of participants will receive EPO, while...

Effect of Erythropoietin in Premature Infants on White Matter Lesions and Neurodevelopmental Outcome

Preterm and very preterm infants are at risk of developing encephalopathy of prematurity and long-term neurodevelopmental delay. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) allows the characterizatio...

High-Dose Erythropoietin in Extremely Premature Infants to Prevent/Attenuate Brain Injury: A Phase II Study

High-dose Erythropoietin for Asphyxia and Encephalopathy

Hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (HIE) occurs when a baby gets reduced blood flow and oxygen to the brain near the time of birth. This results in death or neurologic disabilities including ...

Factors in Premature Infants Associated With Low Risk of Developing Retinopathy of Prematurity.

Most premature infants will not develop retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) of clinical relevance, yet screening evaluations often continue beyond hospital discharge, even for those infants without ROP.


Ticarcillin-clavulanate covers a broad spectrum of pathogens that are common in premature infants. In infants

Prolonged duration of early antibiotic therapy in extremely premature infants.

Prolonged early antibiotics in extremely premature infants may have negative effects. We aimed to assess prevalence and outcomes of provision of prolonged early antibiotics to extremely premature infa...

Temporal Profile of Retinopathy of Prematurity in Extremely Premature Compared to Premature Infants.

To compare the time course of retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) in premature (≥ 28 to 34 weeks' gestational age) and extremely premature (< 28 weeks' gestational age) infants.

Temporal Trends and Center Variation in Early Antibiotic Use Among Premature Infants.

Premature infants are frequently administered empirical antibiotic therapy at birth. Early and prolonged antibiotic exposures among infants without culture-confirmed infection have been associated wit...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Onset of OBSTETRIC LABOR before term (TERM BIRTH) but usually after the FETUS has become viable. In humans, it occurs sometime during the 29th through 38th week of PREGNANCY. TOCOLYSIS inhibits premature labor and can prevent the BIRTH of premature infants (INFANT, PREMATURE).

A chronic lung disease developed after OXYGEN INHALATION THERAPY or mechanical ventilation (VENTILATION, MECHANICAL) usually occurring in certain premature infants (INFANT, PREMATURE) or newborn infants with respiratory distress syndrome (RESPIRATORY DISTRESS SYNDROME, NEWBORN). Histologically, it is characterized by the unusual abnormalities of the bronchioles, such as METAPLASIA, decrease in alveolar number, and formation of CYSTS.

Diseases that occur in PREMATURE INFANTS.

A type of cardiac arrhythmia with premature atrial contractions or beats caused by signals originating from ectopic atrial sites. The ectopic signals may or may not conduct to the HEART VENTRICLES. Atrial premature complexes are characterized by premature P waves on ECG which are different in configuration from the P waves generated by the normal pacemaker complex in the SINOATRIAL NODE.

Cell surface proteins that bind erythropoietin with high affinity and trigger intracellular changes influencing the behavior of cells.
