The aim of this study was to define the predictive values of serum and cerebrospinal fluid concentrations of interleukin-6 and neuron-specific enolase and urinary uric acid/creatinine ratio for outcome in term infants with perinatal asphyxia. All biochemical markers were measured simultaneously within the 24-72 hours of life in 21 infants. The infants were monitored with a standardized neurologic and developmental evaluation protocol over the 2 years of life. The overall outcome at 2 years of… CONTINUE READING
