Creatine kinase isoenzyme BB was determined in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in 79 preterm neonates using an original enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. The criterion for inclusion was an Apgar score of 7 or less at 5 min of life. Neurological examination was performed on day 2 and day 5 of life. CSF was obtained on the same days. Lumbar puncture was performed on 41 of these babies on day 2 and in 39 on day 5 of life (one baby underwent lumbar puncture twice). All babies had clinical features of… CONTINUE READING
