Fetal and Neonatal Renal Failure and Renal Transplant
Major advances have been made over the past few decades in caring for neonates with chronic renal disease. Although dialysis registries report infants as a high-risk population for poor outcomes, these children can be effectively maintained on dialysis until they are ready for receiving a transplant.

Many comparative studies have failed to demonstrate ill effects related to the SFR NICU. Cumulative data indicate that the single room environment is safe and effective in providing care. It is important to emphasize that care in the SFR NICU should be enhanced with appropriate developmental and family-centered care. (Source: NeoReviews recent issues)

Windtree touts inhaled therapy for infants with respiratory distress syndrome
Windtree Therapeutics (NSDQ:WINT) today released data from a phase IIa trial evaluating its inhaled Aerosurf lucinactant designed for premature infants with respiratory distress syndrome.

HOW IT WORKS: Oxycodone is a semi-synthetic opioid with analgesic properties. Oxycodone binds to mu, kappa, and delta opio...

For me, it seemed like I was working toward an impossible goal. I knew I had to heal. I knew I had to “get over” my life-threatening pregnancy and my daughter’s premature birth and forgive myself. The truth is that you never really “get over” your baby’s premature birth ― you just learn to move on from it. This was a requirement; not just for me to move past it, but so that my family could move on despite our setbacks. The need to move on and enjoy life does not accurately explain what I really mean. What I really mean is that I needed to give myself permission to enjoy life again. For...
