Candidate gene analysis: Severe intraventricular hemorrhage in inborn preterm neonates

Academic Article

Abstract

  • Intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH) is a disorder of complex etiology. We analyzed genotypes for 7 genes from 224 inborn preterm neonates treated with antenatal steroids and grade 3-4 IVH and 389 matched controls. Only methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase was more prevalent in cases of IVH, emphasizing the need for more comprehensive genetic strategies. © 2013 Mosby Inc. All rights reserved.
