    Very premature birth frequently results in chronic respiratory morbidity, particularly if complicated by the development of chronic lung disease, bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD). Affected infants may remain oxygen dependent for many months and require hospital readmission in the first two years...

    Nowadays we know a great deal about the lung. We understand its major functions, how it achieves most of these, how it looks microscopically, and other physiological attributes such as that adequate amounts of pulmonary surfactant in the prematurely born infant are essential for lung function...

    Term born infants are predisposed to human rhinovirus (HRV) lower respiratory tract infections (LRTI) by reduced neonatal lung function and genetic susceptibility. Our aim was to investigate whether prematurely born infants were similarly predisposed to HRV LRTIs or any other viral LRTIs....

    The article offers information on caring for premature infants. It explains that a baby is premature if he/she is born before 37 weeks of pregnancy or more than three weeks before he/she is due. It states that premature infants have more chance of getting certain illnesses and have growth...

    Our aim was to determine whether viral lower respiratory tract infections (LRTIs) adversely affect prematurely born infants' lung function at follow up. Seventy infants, median gestational age 34 (range, 24-35) weeks were prospectively followed; 32 had an RSV ( n = 14) or another respiratory...

    Objective: To test the hypothesis that male compared with female prematurely born infants would have worse lung function at follow up. Design: Prospective follow up study. Setting: Tertiary neonatal intensive care units Patients: Seventy six infants, mean (SD) gestational age 26.4 (1 .5) weeks,...

    Bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) is a common chronic lung disease and major risk factor for severe respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infection among preterm infants. The Toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4) is involved in oxidative injury responses in the lungs. Two non-synonymous single nucleotide...
