To assess whether an oral stimulation program, before the introduction of oral feeding, enhances the cardiorespiratory manifestations (episodes of oxygen désaturations, and/or apnea- bradycardia), and the oral feeding performance, in preterm infants born between 26 to 29 weeks of gestation age.
Preterm infant were randomized into an experimental or an control group. Infants in the experimental group receive an oral stimulation program consisting of stimulation of the oral structures during 10 consecutive days. Infant in the control group receive no stimulation only non nutritive sucking during feeding. Both were administered twice per day, during 20 minutes, 48 hours after discontinuation of nasal continuous positive air pressure. A long term evaluation of oral feeding difficulties and neuromotor development are organized.
Allocation: Randomized, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Prevention
no stimulation of the oral structure, stimulation of the oral structure

The purpose of the study is to determine the oral dosage of TR-701 to be used in Phase III studies in patients with complicated skin and skin structure infections.
This is a phase III, multi-center, randomized, active-comparator, study in subjects with ABSSSI. The study has two subgroups for assessment of efficacy and safety - oral subgroup 1 and IV ...
Background In preterm infants, oral stimulation enhances muscle tone and movement which facilitates normal oral motor developmental patterns improving oral feeding performance. Aim To study the effect...
Oral feeding skills of moderately preterm infants are not mature at birth.
The efficient and safe oral feeding of preterm infants, an essential criterion for hospital discharge, is affected by neurodevelopmental maturation. However, the timing of initiating oral feeding and ...
The aim of this study was to validate the ability of cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) to measure condylar internal trabecular bone structure and bone texture parameters accurately.
