Predictive Value of Perinatal Biomarkers Following Very Preterm Birth for Cerebral Palsy and Developmental Delay at Age 24 Months

Principal Investigator:
Gwendolyn
Gerner

Neurologic injury identified in neonates soon after pre-term birth may either completely resolve or lead to life-long disabilities, including cerebral palsy (CP), that are a severe burden for these patients and their families. There is currently much focus on very early identification of neurologic injuries that are likely to result in neurodevelopmental disorders including cerebral palsy. The objective in this study is to identify perinatal risk factors for long-term neurologic injury in children.
