OBJECTIVE To prospectively investigate cord blood concentrations of intestinal fatty acid-binding protein-[I-FABP, a useful marker in the early detection of necrotizing enterocolitis-(NEC)] in full-term intrauterine-growth-restricted-(IUGR, associated with NEC, regardless of gestational age) and appropriate-for-gestational-age-(AGA) pregnancies. We also aimed to determine cord blood I-FABP concentrations in IUGR cases with abnormal versus normal antenatal Doppler results and investigate a… CONTINUE READING
