This study investigated the effects of intravenous AA administration on plasma AA profiles in premature baboons and infants. METHODS: Premature baboons were delivered by cesarean section at 125 days (67% gestation) and chronically ventilated. At 24 hours of life, a parenteral AA protocol comparable to the early and high AA regimens used in premature infants was initiated. Serial plasma AA concentrations were obtained on days of life (DOLs) 1, 3, and 7 and compared with concentrations at similar DOLs from preterm infants. Fetal baboon (165 ± 2 days; 89% gestation) and term baboon plasma AA concentrations were ob...

An infant is described as “preterm” if they are born before 37 weeks of gestation. As nephrogenesis does not complete until 36 weeks of gestation, premature infants are often born with underdeveloped kidneys. Current evidence strongly suggests that this leaves those born prematurely more susceptible to developing kidney -related conditions later in life. Although the incidence of premature birth steadily increases each year in the United Kingdom, reports of perinatal death following preterm labour are falling. This is mainly attributed to the development of antenatal drugs, such as tocolytics, corticostero...

Abstract INTRODUCTION: Influenza causes significant morbidity among young children, and vaccination remains the best strategy to prevent disease. Understanding factors influencing early influenza vaccination uptake are important to identify strategies to increase vaccination rates. OBJECTIVE: To assess maternal and neonatal factors associated with influenza vaccination among first-born children within the first two years of life. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective population-based cohort study linking Colorado Birth Registry data and state immunization data of all live births between 2008 and 2016. Th...

Infants born between 34 weeks 0 days and 36 weeks 6 days of gestation are termed late preterm. This group accounts for the majority of premature births in the United States, with rates increasing in each of the last 3 years. This increase is significant given their large number: nearly 280,000 in 2016 alone. Late preterm infants place a significant burden on the health care and education systems because of their increased risk of morbidities and mortality compared with more mature infants. This increased risk persists past the newborn period, leading to the need for continued health monitoring throughout life.
