Hi everyone, recently I have noticed a practice that is creeping in when it come to the prevention and the management of BPD. It is the use of Azithromycin and Hydroxychloroquine in BPD. While there are three RCTs for the use of Azithromycin, two with positive outcome and one with negative outcome when it come to BPD, it is still an experimental drug. I can not find any articles or studies on the use Hydroxychloroquine in BPD. My concerns are these drugs are experimental at best and by trying them without proper parents counselling which can lead misleading hope for parents and increase risk of side effect and complication without tangible benefits. If any has any experience with these two drugs, please let me know. Yours
