The relationship between early concentrations of 25 blood proteins and cerebral white matter injury in preterm newborns: the ELGAN study.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE To evaluate whether concentrations of inflammation-related proteins are elevated in the blood of preterm newborns who develop cerebral white matter damage. STUDY DESIGN We measured 25 proteins in blood collected on days 1, 7, and 14 from 939 infants born before the 28th week of gestation. Brain ultrasound scans were read by at least two… (More)
