Darbepoetin administration to neonates undergoing cooling for encephalopathy: a safety and pharmacokinetic trial
Background:Despite therapeutic hypothermia, neonates with encephalopathy (NE) have high rates of death or disability. Darbepoetin alfa (Darbe) has comparable biological activity to erythropoietin,Expand
