We hypothesised that including CC measurements in routine HUS will be an additional tool for early identification of infants at risk of adverse short-term ND outcome, over(More)
We aimed 1) to define risk factors for adverse outcome in urban African American patients, 2) to determine whether clinical variables as risk factors are congruent with previously published data, and 3) to identify the proportion of infants with different outcomes.

Objective: To analyze starting time (early versus late) and duration of caffeine treatment and its possible influence on neurodevelopmental (ND) outcome in very preterm infants. Hypothesis: Early initiation of caffeine treatment with longer duration of treatment may significantly improve ND outcome in very preterm infants. Design: Retrospective cohort(More)
