Abstract RATIONALE: Bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) is a serious neonatal pulmonary condition associated with premature birth, but the underlying parenchymal disease and trajectory are poorly characterized. The current NICHD/NHLBI definition of BPD severity is based on degree of prematurity and extent of oxygen requirement. However, no clear link exists between initial diagnosis and clinical outcomes. OBJECTIVES: We hypothesized that magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of structural parenchymal abnormalities will correlate with NICHD-defined BPD disease severity and predict short-term respiratory outcomes. ...

In 2017, bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) marked its 50th year as a descriptor of lung disease following premature delivery. The NICU has changed in the years since 1967, as have the babies that leave the NICU with the diagnosis of BPD. Because of that, BPD itself has changed. It is thus necessary to return to the definition, and react to these changes in order to arm our clinicians and researchers with the best possible measure and predictor of lung injury and function following premature birth.

A Nationwide Children's Hospital spinoff that's developing a probiotic treatment for the leading cause of death from gastrointestinal disease in premature infants has raised $1.8 million from a group of funds including Rev1 Ventures. Indianapolis-based Scioto Biosciences Inc. raised the round with Indiana-based BioCrossroads and Elevate Ventures, along with Columbus-based Rev1. It previously had $380,000 in grants from the National Institutes of Health and the state of Indiana. The Columbus pediatric…

CONCLUSIONS: The most prevalent diagnosis in children with BD-resistant airflow limitation is asthma. Allergic rhinitis and premature birth are common co-morbidities. Children without a history of asthma, as well as those with asthma but no allergic rhinitis, had lower pulmonary function. Children with BD-resistant airflow limitation may represent a sub-group of children with persistent obstruction and high risk for life-long airway disease.

Thanks to the progress in neonatology, more than 85% of premature newborns survive  (Victora et al., 2016). However, premature birth remains a leading cause of morbidity and mortality. The brain develops rapidly during the third trimester of pregnancy and can be explored precisely by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in the prenatal and the postnatal periods (Parazzini et al., 2008; Tilea et al., 2009; Viola et al., 2011). Indeed, automated quantification of the cortical folding in a population of preterms, newborns and infants has been investigated in (Dubois et al., 2016), showing promising results.
