The overall purpose of this research is to test whether adding a supplement to the feeding of extremely low birth weight infant (infants weighing less than 2 pound 2 oz at birth) will help him/her achieve full feeding faster and achieve better weight gain.
Twenty-seven hospitals in China will participate in the study, which aims to increase breastfeeding rate in the NICU and reduce the clinical complications in very low birth weight infants and extremely low birth weight infants.
To test the hypothesis that progressive feeding without minimal enteral feeding (MEF) compared to progressive feeding preceded by a 4-day course of MEF will result in an increased number of days alive on full enteral feeding in the first 28 days after birth in extremely preterm infants receiving human milk.
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 birth weight (VLBW) preterm infants is associated with increased feeding intolerance, necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) and sepsis. Probiotics are proposed to normalize microbial populations and decrease intestinal disease in preterm infants. There is limited data linking clinical outcomes with th...
Objective: To investigate whether recombinant EPO reduces the need for transfusion in extremely low birth weight (ELBW) infants and to determine the optimal time for treatment. The concentrations of trace elements and of antioxidant enzymes were investigated in all patients, too. Study population: 219 patient randomized into 3 groups
The adequacy of the quality of protein supply could influence the rate and the relative composition of weight gain in very low birth weight preterm infants. Aim of our study is to investigate protein balance according to feeding regimen and the association between human milk feeding and fat free mass content at term corrected age in a cohort of very low birth weight infants.
An observational study comparing outcomes of Extremely Low Birth Weight (ELBW) infants that were monitored with non-invasive Transcutaneous CO2 (TCCO2) monitor to infants that were not monitored by TCCO2 monitor.
The aim of this study is to evaluate the effect of increasing amino acid and energy intake during parenteral and enteral nutrition with and without the stimulation of the infant's physical activity, on growth of extremely low birth weight infants .
The purpose of this study is to apply a different incubator humidity strategy at birth to decrease morbidity and mortality in extremely low birth (1000 g or less) infants.
Newborn infants in the neonatal intensive care nursery experience multiple, painful tissue damaging procedures daily. Preterm especially extremely low birth weights and critically ill newborns admitted to a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) undergo repeated skin-breaking procedures that are necessary for their survival. Sucrose is the accepted clinical standard nonpharmacological intervention for managing acute procedural pain for these infants. However its role in ex...
We investigate the efficacy of probiotics in reducing the incidence and severity of necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) for very low birth weight (VLBW) infants.A prospective, masked, multi-center randomized control trial will be conducted level III neonatal center to evaluate the beneficial effects of probiotics for NEC among VLBW (
The management protocols, clinical practices, equipment, infrastructure, and key personnel in NICU are unchanged during the study period. The data collected by each center are transmitted to the office of the principal investigator (Dr Lin) at China Medical University Hospital. Primary outcome is death or attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and ASD.
To evaluate the efficacy of prophylactic glycerin suppositories will accelerate the elimination of meconium from the large intestine and thus reduce the incidence of feeding intolerance in very low birth weight (VLBW) infants
Human Milk Fortifier (HMF) is designed to supply additional calories, protein, vitamins and minerals to infants less than 37 weeks gestation or those less than 1500 g at birth. Liquid and powder types of HMF are available in the commercial market. Usually, one packet of powdered HMF is mixed to 25-50 cc expressed breast milk. Fortification of human milk is technically difficult in fully breastfed infants and artificial teats such as bottle feedings are common used. A study repo...
Definition of low birth weight: Low birth weight infants are those born weighing less than 2500 g. These are further subdivided into: - Very Low Birth Weight : Birth weight
The aim of this study is evaluates the effect of the use of bottle and cup in breast sucking patterns in preterm infants. It will be a randomized blind study. One group will be randomized to use bottle to feed and another one to use a cup to feed. As secondary endpoints, weight gain, days of life to begin full oral feeding, length of hospital stay and breast feeding rates will be observed.
In this study, we want to see how feeding affects breathing in small premature babies. Using a special feeding tube in the stomach, we can measure how the diaphragm (a large breathing muscle) might be affected by feeding. We also want to see if slowing down the feeding may lessen this effect.
Chronic Lung Disease (CLD) of Prematurity is a common yet challenging co-morbidity affecting extremely premature newborns. Multifactorial influences leading to this co-morbidity is known and targeted in various research studies. Gastroesophageal reflux (GER) is common among the same cohort of patients. The investigators hypothesize that recurrent milk reflux into the airways of the premature babies worsen the inflammation of premature lungs and is a major contributor of CLD. ...
Postnatal growth is a crucial in premature infants as it could be correlated with the long-term cognitive development. Optimal nutritional care is required to reduce the initial weight loss and further growth deficit. The quantitative objective is to achieve growth that is at least equivalent to that of the fetus (on average 15 g/kg.day (12-18 g/kg.day according to gestational age). Children often grow during difficult 10-15 first days of life, so they accumulate a delay that ...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the utility of using heliox gas in combination with nasal CPAP in extremely low birth weight infants. The investigators hypothesize that using heliox gas in combination with nasal CPAP will results in decreased early nasal CPAP failure requiring intubation and mechanical ventilation.
Feeding is one of the most common problems encountered by preterm infants. Besides, effective and safe feeding is one of the important discharge criteria. Feeding problems of premature infants lead to prolonged hospitalization and increased healthcare cost. SINC feeding protocol was developed based on evidence-based feeding protocol (such as cue-based, infant-driven feeding) and individualized developmental care. The aim of the study is to determine the effect of the SINC feed...
As extremely low birth weight infants are high-risk patients, the study aimed to compare neonatal care, nutritional strategy and postnatal growth of these infants in two European neonatal units. A retrospective study included extremely low birth weight infants born in Lyon, France or in Stockholm, Sweden. Data on morbidity, treatments, care practices, macro-nutrient intakes and postnatal growth were collected to determine risk factors of extra uterine growth restriction at disc...
The purpose of this two-arm investigation is to determine if growth patterns of very low birth weight infants (VLBW) (birth weight 750-1500 grams) fed human milk (maternal or donor) supplemented with a human milk-based fortifier grow according to established guidelines and maintain adequate micronutrient levels.
In the present trial, early, intravenous paracetamol is compared to placebo in extremely premature or low birth weight infants in order to evaluate the effect on ductal closure.
Globally, 15% of all babies, amounting to 20 million infants each year, are born low birthweight (LBW), defined less than 2500 grams (5.5 lbs). Compared to normal weight infants, LBW infants are at higher risk of morbidity, mortality, and poor growth (Risnes et al 2011; Larroque et al 2001; WHO 2006). The main causes of LBW are preterm birth, intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR), or their combination. Unfortunately, there is a paucity of information around feeding practices a...
