NEOCLEAR: Neonatal COVID-19 Literature Evaluated and Aggregated in Real-time

Recommended Posts

I just got this email from Dr's Meg Kirkley, Clyde Wright and @GauthamSuresh in the US - they are aggregating Neonatal Covid-19 literature to a spreadsheet. A fantastic initiative!

Find the continuously updated spreadsheet here:

Please find the full email below.

Big thanks to Meg, Clyde and @GauthamSuresh for this iniative!

We have a resource to share!!!

Meg Kirkley (Assistant Professor here in Colorado) and I have been developing a platform to help our Section stay familiar with the rapidly emerging evidence surrounding COVID-19 With that in mind, we created NeoCLEAR: Neonatal COVID-19 Literature Evaluated and Aggregated in Real-time

Topic champions within the section are committing to staying abreast in the following areas, to serve as a resource for you:

  • Transmission (with a focus on vertical / perinatal / neonatal transmission): Rob Dietz and Susan Niermeyer
  • Clinical Features of Neonatal Infection: Clyde Wright & Meg Kirkley
  • Diagnosis and Treatment: Laurie Sherlock & Steph Bourque
  • NICU-specific practices and policies: Steph Chassen & Sadie Houin
  • Consensus Statements (reviews & guidelines from medical governing bodies): Erica Mandell & Susan Hwang

The Topic Champions are continually updating this spreadsheet which can be sorted by topic, publication date, and publication type. Hyperlinks are provided and the workgroup has provided a brief “key points” column.

Gautham has worked hard to include the NeoCLEAR spreadsheet on the perinatalcovid19.org site and it can be found here: https://perinatalcovid19.org/neoclear/

We will do our best to keep it updated and our searches robust!

Thank you - Meg and Clyde and Gautham

Great!, Thanks to the Topic Champions.

Just a suggestion to be added: the first neonatal described in Spain:  postpartum  trasmission,  1st RT-PCR test negative  on day 7th in asymptomatic phase, turned positive on day 9th.  https://www.analesdepediatria.org/es-pdf-S1695403320301302.  So not rely on a single negative test in high-risk newborns under investigation!

Best wishes to everybody.  Keep safe and strong minded
