Circulatory insulin-like growth factor-I and brain volumes in relation to neurodevelopmental outcome in very preterm infants

Background:To evaluate the relationships between postnatal change in circulatory insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) concentrations, brain volumes, and developmental outcome at 2 y of age in very preterm infants.Methods:IGF-I was measured weekly, and nutritional intake was calculated daily from birth until a postmenstrual age (PMA) of 35 wk.
