Predictors of Pulmonary Hypertension Risk in Premature Infants With Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia
A lung condition called bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) is a major cause of poor outcomes and death for premature infants. Infants with BPD are also at high risk for pulmonary hypertension (PH)—an important contributor to their condition. Previous research has suggested that a protein in the blood, endothelin-1 (ET-1), is associated with pulmonary disease.
This study aims to investigate the incidence of PH and levels of ET-1 among premature babies with BPD. It will also potentially allow us to focus further research efforts and treatment towards these infants, some of our sickest patients at LPCH.
