In this observational prospective study we aimed to assess whether one or more bacterial taxa in the gut differ between infants who subsequently develop necrotising enterocolitis (cases) and those who do not (controls). METHODS We enrolled very low birthweight (1500 g and lower) infants in the primary cohort (St Louis Children's Hospital) between July 7, 2009, and… CONTINUE READING
