Small-bowel overgrowth with aerobic gram-negative bacteria has previously been implicated in the development of NEC. This prospective study performed quantitative bacteriology on 422 duodenal aspirates collected from 122 very-low-birth-weight (<1,500-g) newborns, at the time of routine changing of nasogastric tubes. Isolates of Enterobacteriaceae were typed by repetitive extragenic, palindromic… CONTINUE READING
