Comparative efficacy of anti-epileptic drugs for neonatal seizures: a network meta-analysis
Anti-epileptic drugs have different effects on neonatal seizures, and new agents have been widely used in recent years. We conducted a network meta-analysis and examined comparative efficacy of the first-line and second-line anti-epileptic drugs for neonatal seizures. First-line drugs are those that were used as the first anticonvulsant therapy in the trials; second-line drugs are those that were used as the second anticonvulsant therapy in the trials.

Clinical and pathophysiologic relevance of autoantibodies in neonatal myasthenia gravis
Between 10% and 20% of neonates born to mothers with myasthenia gravis (MG) develop neonatal MG due to the transfer of maternal autoantibodies across the placenta. Neonatal MG can occur in infants born not only from mothers with acetylcholine receptor (AChR) or muscle-specific tyrosine kinase (MuSK) antibodies but also from mothers without detectable muscle antibodies. The low incidence rate may be due to specific autoantibody characteristics that differ among individuals, but a genetic predisposition in some infants is possible.

Neuropsychiatric involvement following the prodromal stage can be lethal and requires intensive care. Prolonged neuropsychiatric symptoms including seizures, changes in personality, memory deficits, psychosis, and sleep disorders are relatively common; however, most patients make...

Microcephaly is defined by an occipital-frontal head circumference (OFD) 2 standard deviations (SD) smaller than the average expected for age, gender and population. Its incidence has been reported between 1.3 and 150 cases per 100,000 births. Currently, new clinical characteristics, causes and pathophysiological mechanisms related to microcephaly continue to be identified. Its etiology is varied and heterogeneous, with genetic and non-genetic factors that produce alterations in differentiation, proliferation, migration, repair of damage to deoxyribonucleic acid and neuronal apoptosis.

In Europe and America, there are marked declines in neonatal GBS-EOD through widespread implementation of guidelines for maternal GBS screening and subsequent intrapartum antibiotic prophylaxis (IAP). The key measures necessary for prevention of GBS-EOD include correct specimen collection and processing, nucleic acid amplification testing (NAAT) for GBS identification, regimens for ...
