BACKGROUND Necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) is a major cause of death and morbidity in very low birth weight infants. OBJECTIVE To identify biomarker(s) that would predict NEC using buccal swab samples utilizing a proteomic approach. METHODS Cumulative buccal swab samples derived from very low birth weight preterm infants (<32 weeks' gestational age and <1,250 g) at 1, 2 and 3 weeks prior to the development of NEC and matched controls were subjected to two-dimensional difference gel… CONTINUE READING
