BACKGROUND Controversy exists regarding association of high levels of proinflammatory cytokines, neonatal morbidities and poor neurodevelopment outcome in very low birth weight infants. OBJECTIVE To determine association between severity of early inflammatory response and neurodevelopment outcome in high risk very low birth weight infants. METHODS Sixty-two very preterm infants with high risk for early-onset sepsis were followed up to 24 months corrected age. Blood sample was collected for… CONTINUE READING
