Activin A, Hyp, and Xan concentrations and NRBC counts were significantly higher in preterm newborns who developed IVH than in those who did not (Fig.
Of 53 newborns, 11 had IVH, giving an overall prevalence of 21% (95% CI, 10%-32%), which was the probability of IVH in preterm newborns before measurement of activin A, Hyp, Xan, and NRBC count (pretest probability).
In humans AM is involved in the regulation of fetal cerebral vascular hemodynamic mechanisms for adaptation to hypoxia (4) and participates in the ischemia-reperfusion mechanisms leading to intraventricular hemorrhage in preterm newborns (5).
Circulating adrenomedullin is increased in preterm newborns developing intraventricular hemorrhage.
Multivariable linear regression analysis revealed a significant inverse association between GA and MNMONO in the newborn population, with significantly lower MNMONO frequencies in preterm newborns (GA < 37 weeks) compared with term births at [greater than or equal to] 37 weeks.
Newborns were separated into two groups for estimating their likelihood of admission into L2/3 care: preterm newborns (less than 37 weeks gestational age) and full-term newborns (gestational age of37 weeks or more).
Duration of stay models are separately estimated for preterm newborns and full-term newborns.
16) compared the breastmilk of the mothers of preterm newborns with formula in terms of antioxidant capacity and found that the total antioxidant capacity of breastmilk was higher.
The results indicated that urine S100B concentrations at birth were significantly higher in preterm newborns (2.

The presence of increased S100B in the blood and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is a consolidated marker of brain damage in adults and children (4-8) and has been proposed recently for use in preterm newborns developing IVH (9).
When urine S100B concentrations in preterm newborns were subgrouped according to gestational age and weight at birth (6), they were significantly higher in the very low birth weight group compared with both the low birth weight and term groups (P <0.
