BACKGROUND The electronic Schizophrenia Treatment Adherence Registry (e-STAR) is a prospective, observational study of patients with schizophrenia designed to evaluate long-term treatment outcomes in routine clinical practice. METHODS Parameters were assessed at baseline and at 3 month intervals for 2 years in patients initiated on risperidone long-acting(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyse the biological factors affecting birthweight and to derive customized birthweight standards for a Spanish population. METHODS A retrospective cohort was created with all the singleton pregnancies delivered at term and free of pathology in our Institution. Birthweight was modeled by multiple linear regression from maternal (ethnic(More)
OBJECTIVE Fetal growth restriction is associated with adverse perinatal outcome but is often not recognised antenatally, and low birthweight centiles based on population norms are used as a proxy instead. This study compared the association between neonatal morbidity and fetal growth status at birth as determined by customised birthweight centiles and(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the perinatal and neurodevelopmental outcome of small-for-gestational-age fetuses with normal umbilical artery Doppler managed expectantly during pregnancy and delivery. STUDY DESIGN Perinatal and neurodevelopmental outcome was assessed from a cohort of singleton small-for-gestational-age fetuses with normal umbilical artery Doppler(More)
OBJECTIVE To study metabolic and energy balances, growth and composition of increased body mass in healthy preterm infants fed control formula or control formula with three different nonprotein energy supplements. PATIENTS AND METHODS Growing preterm infants (birth weight < 1,500 g and gestational age < 31 weeks) were fed standard preterm formula (control(More)
Intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) is associated with a high risk of abnormal neurodevelopment. Underlying neuroanatomical substrates are partially documented. We hypothesized that at 12 months preterm infants would evidence specific white-matter microstructure alterations and gray-matter differences induced by severe IUGR. Twenty preterm infants with(More)
AIMS To assess the relationship between clinically maternal chorioamnionitis and outcome in preterm very-low-birth weight (VLBW) infants. METHODS An observational case-control study was conducted in the neonatology departments of 12 acute care teaching hospitals in Spain. Between January 2004 and December 2006, all consecutive VLBW (≤1500 g) infants who(More)
AIMS To assess the relationship between maternal clinical chorioamnionitis and neonatal outcome in preterm very-low birthweight (VLBW) infants. METHODS An observational case-control study was conducted in the Neonatology Services of 12 acute-care teaching hospitals in Spain. Between January 2004 and December 2006, all consecutive VLBW (< or =1500 g)(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the relationship between umbilical artery pulsatility index and the umbilical cord pH in small-for-gestational-age fetuses. METHODS Data were collected from all pregnancies seen in our Fetal Surveillance Unit that underwent antenatal monitoring for being small-for-gestational-age beyond 24 weeks of pregnancy. A linear regression was(More)
BACKGROUND Our aim was to determine the influence of breastfeeding and postnatal nutrition on cardiovascular remodeling induced by fetal growth restriction (FGR). METHODS A cohort study including 81 children with birthweight <10th centile (FGR) and 121 with adequate fetal growth for gestational age (AGA) was conducted. Cardiovascular endpoints were left(More)
