Shankaran, S., Natarajan, G., Chalak, L., Pappas, A., McDonald, S. A., & Laptook, A. R. (2016). Hypothermia for neonatal hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy: NICHD Neonatal Research Network contribution to the field. Seminars in Perinatology, 40(6), 385-390. DOI: 10.1053/j.semperi.2016.05.009
In this article, we summarize the NICHD Neonatal Research Network (NRN) trial of whole body hypothermia for neonates with hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy in relation to other randomized controlled trials (RCTs) of hypothermia neuroprotection. We describe the NRN secondary studies that have been published in the past 10 years evaluating clinical, genetic, biochemical, and imaging biomarkers of outcome. (C) 2016 Elsevier Inc.
