Objective:To replicate genetic associations with respiratory distress syndrome (RDS) and bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) in genes related to surfactant deficiency, inflammation and infection, and the renin–angiotensin system.Study Design:We examined eight candidate genes for associations with RDS and BPD in 433 preterm birth (PTB—<37 weeks) infants (251 with RDS and 134 with BPD). Both case–control and family-based analyses were performed in preterm (<37 weeks) and very preterm birth (VPTB—<32… CONTINUE READING
