OBJECTIVE Erythropoietin therapy is effective in decreasing transfusions to varying degrees in preterm infants. Recent animal studies using erythropoietin doses to achieve serum concentrations > 1000 mU/mL report neuroprotective effects. We evaluated the relationship between erythropoietin concentrations and neurodevelopmental outcome in extremely low birth weight infants. METHODS Preterm infants who weighed < or = 1000 g at birth were randomly assigned to erythropoietin (400 U/kg 3 times per… CONTINUE READING
