Role of human milk in extremely low birth weight infants’ risk of necrotizing enterocolitis or death
Objective:To determine the association between human milk (HM) intake and risk of necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) or death among infants 401 to 1000 g birth weight.Study Design:Analysis of 1272Expand
Innate protection conferred by fucosylated oligosaccharides of human milk against diarrhea in breastfed infants.
To test the hypothesis that human milk fucosyloligosaccharides are part of an innate immune system, we addressed whether their expression (1) depends on maternal genotype and (2) protects breastfedExpand
The large vestibular aqueduct: A new definition based on audiologic and computed tomography correlation
Objective The study goal was to determine the prevalence and clinical significance of a large vestibular aqueduct (LVA) in children with sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL). Study Design and Setting WeExpand
Human milk oligosaccharides are associated with protection against diarrhea in breast-fed infants.
OBJECTIVE To determine the association between maternal milk levels of 2-linked fucosylated oligosaccharide and prevention of diarrhea as a result of Campylobacter, caliciviruses, and diarrhea of allExpand
When Is the Vestibular Aqueduct Enlarged? A Statistical Analysis of the Normative Distribution of Vestibular Aqueduct Size
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The size of vestibular aqueducts (VAs) seen on CT studies varies. The current practice of calling a VA enlarged when it exceeds a certain threshold (eg, 1.5 mm at theExpand
