In a double-blind clinical trial the effects of a single dose of reconstituted bovine surfactant ('Surfactant TA') were assessed in 30 premature infants (birthweight 751-1750 g) with severe hyaline membrane disease. 17 infants had a sonicated saline suspension of 100 mg/kg surfactant phospholipid instilled into the trachea at 5.0 (SD 0.7) hours of age and(More)
BACKGROUND Wiping of the mouth and nose at birth is an alternative method to oronasopharyngeal suction in delivery-room management of neonates, but whether these methods have equivalent effectiveness is unclear. METHODS For this randomised equivalency trial, neonates delivered at 35 weeks' gestation or later at the University of Alabama at Birmingham(More)
Stress is the phenomenal; any stimulus which displaces the state of normal physiological function can cause stress and has its effect in various forms. Somatic growth and development are also affected by stress affecting growth releasing hormone. This study was conducted to observe growth pattern in normal and stressed condition in growing mice.

Multifocal and diffuse infantile hepatic hemangioendotheliomas commonly present with signs of high-output congestive heart failure. In addition, prolonged persistent pulmonary overcirculation eventually leads to the development of pulmonary hypertension at a later age. We report a 2-day old, full-term infant with multifocal, large infantile hepatic(More)
OBJECTIVE Prophylactic indomethacin reduces severe intraventricular hemorrhage but may increase spontaneous intestinal perforation (SIP) in extremely low birth weight (ELBW) infants. Early feedings improve nutritional outcomes but may increase the risk of SIP. Despite their benefits, use of these therapies varies largely by physician preferences in part(More)
The effects of methotrexate (MTX) and vitamin A on NOR expression and histopathology in liver of male Wistar rats were evaluated.
