Lack of prognostic significance of early elevated serum uric acid levels in low birthweight infants.

Abstract

This study examined the utility of serum uric acid concentrations in the first day of life to identify infants with severe brain injury (grade III or IV intraventricular hemorrhage and/or periventricular leukomalacia).
