  1. This September I had the opportunity to go to BAPM-EBNEO to kept Learning a out Neonatology and hopefully network with the EBNEO, so glad I see lots of you face to face. This kept motivated to finish my PhD as I re-embark in find a new supervisor _only 1.5 yrs to go. I was real hard to let of the clinician in me as , this is my comfort zone. As a budding academic learn I get explore ideas and ways to implement them as bioethicists , as well finding ways to humanize the NIcU via processes. Last year, I took a small detour as jr.posdoc and spent time studying system thinking, process and how t
  2. I have finally come across a probiotics product, produced in the UK (?), and classified as a dietary supplement in the UK. However, the regulatory aspects seem a bit complex. For example, it seems that we would need permission from the Swedish Medical Product Agency Authority before we could start to administer it to preterm infants in the NICU. It is possible that the authority would not approve it as a dietary supplement but consider it as a pharmaceutical, which means that a more complicated regulatory framework kicks in. My question to you - how are you able to use probiotics in
  3. We would like to invite all members to participate in a short survey on probiotics. As you know, probiotics are commonly given to preterm infants to reduce the risk of necrotizing enterocolitis. However, in many countries there is a lack of a product designed specifically for preterm infants. 99nicu was approached by an independent and non-profit project that aims to provide such a dedicated probiotics formulation for preterm infants. The survey takes about 5 minutes to complete. All information provided will be treated confidentially. Please use this URL to respond to the surve
  4. The awaited probiotics UK-trial is now published, and the results are showing that a single bacteria (Bifidobacterium breve BBG-001 in very preterm infants) does not reduce the risk of NEC, late-onset sepsis, or mortality. In short, a negative trial of good quality methodologically. However, the results contrasts against the ProPrems trial, similarly powered and well-designed, but the probiotics in that trial included a 3-strain preparation. Also, the Cochrane review from last year expressed strong recommendations that probiotics should be offered to preterm infants. We have started
  5. The updated Cochrane review comes with a clear recommendation - that preterm infants (defined as <37 weeks / BW <2500 g) should be given probiotics to reduce the risk of NEC. http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/14651858.CD005496.pub4/abstract When reading the full review (look at the tables), my impression is that the effect among infants <1000 grams is less well documented. And I came across this editorial: http://www.jpeds.com/article/S0022-3476%2814%2900431-4/abstract What is your opinion about and/or the interpretation of the Cochrane review? If you use probiotic
  6. We were in the works to get the Solgar probiotic product used in the ProPrems trial (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24249817) As far as we have understood - this is the product http://www.yourhealthfoodstore.co.uk/shop-by-department/supplements/pre-probiotics/pro/solgar-abc-dophilus-powder-children-and-infant-formula.html and we have been working to import it to Sweden. Now it seems that this specific product is recalled after a safety alert by the FDA http://www.fda.gov/Safety/MedWatch/SafetyInformation/SafetyAlertsforHumanMedicalProducts/ucm423277.htm Has anyone used this
  7. The ProPrems Trial investigated the use of probiotics in very preterm infants. The study has been reported at meetings, but the full article will be published in Pediatrics in December. The primary outcome was late onset sepsis, but the finding given most publicity was reduction of NEC. Keith Barrington, neonatologist in Canada and blogging at neonatalresearch.org, argued that probiotics should now be used as NEC prevention and that future research should focus on refining probiotic therapy, not comparing it with placebo.
