BACKGROUND CF infants often do not grow as expected which adversely affects later clinical outcomes, thus sensitive early measures of growth deficiency are important. This study compared attained growth for age with velocity standards to determine which better predicts growth deficits at 24 months of age. METHODS Growth deficiency in infancy based on weight and length velocity, and attained growth was calculated for 1992 infants in the US CF Foundation National Registry using the World Health… CONTINUE READING
