Airway Therapeutics, a Sharonville biotechnology company developing a way to prevent and treat lung disease in premature babies, has raised $11 million in Series B financing from new and existing investors. The firm is developing a protein replacement therapy called AT-100, which is based on research conducted by Dr. Jeffrey Whitset at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. Airway Therapeutics was created in 2011 as a spin-out of Cincinnati Children’s.  “Our hardworking team is…

Gonzalez Brain structural connectivity is known to be altered in cases of intrauterine growth restriction and premature birth, although the specific effect of maternal nutritional restriction, a common burden in human populations, has not been assessed yet. Here we analyze the effects of maternal undernutrition during pregnancy and lactation by establishing three experimental groups of female mice divided according to their diet: control (Co), mode...

There are more than 74 million women in today ’s workplace, according to the Department of Labor. Seventy percent of them are mothers with children under the age of 18 and 1.7 million have a baby each year.  It’s important to understand the financial impact of delivering healthy babies. According to the March of Dimes, a child needing neo natal or intensive care can represent the most expensive conditions billed to commercial insurers for hospital care. Employers could pay 12 times more in health…

Conclusion Keeping in mind the limitations of an uncontrolled prospective observational study, our results confirm the effectiveness and safety of palivizumab prophylaxis. The total number of patients with hsCHD is lower than expected. A better adjustment to the regional epidemiology would probably reduce the need for more than 5 injections.

In this study, we set out to explore whether systemic inflammatory stress affects the development of retinal ganglion cells (RGCs). Neonatal inflammation was induced by single and systemic injection of lipopolysaccharide (LPS, 1 mg/kg) at postnatal day 4 (P4). Morphological changes of RGCs were investigated by using 3D neuron reconstruction technique in Thy-1 YFPH transgenic mice at P21, of which a fraction of RGCs selectively expresses the yellow fluorescent protein (YFP). Three types (Type I, II, III) of RGCs were distinguished and classified according to the characteristic features in their dendritic field area and de...

Abstract It is now widely accepted that nutrition during critical periods in early development, both pre- and postnatal, may have lifetime consequences in determining health or onset of major diseases in the adult life. Dietary carotenoids have shown beneficial health effects throughout the life cycle due to their potential antioxidant properties, their ability to serves as precursors of vitamin A and to the emerging signaling functions of their metabolites. The non-provitamin A carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin are emerging as important modulators of infant and child visual and cognitive development, as well as c...

lal J Abstract INTRODUCTION: Growth restriction in preterm infants has been related to a poor neurodevelopment outcome. OBJECTIVES: To define the incidence of postnatal growth restriction in premature babies ≤1,500 grams and to detect related clinical or biochemical markers. METHODS: Retrospective longitudinal observational study. Multivariate linear regression models were used to determine variables that can predict the change in weight z-score during admission. RESULTS: The study included 130 patients with a mean birthweight of 1,161±251grams and a gestational age of 29.9±2.5 week...
