Bifidobacterium and enteral feeding in preterm infants: cluster-randomized trial.

Totsu S, Yamasaki C, Terahara M, Uchiyama A, Kusuda S, Probiotics Study Group in Jap - Pediatr Int (2014)

Bottom Line: Overall, 283 VLBW infants were enrolled in the study: B group, n = 153; and P group, n = 130.Infant growth during the stay in the neonatal intensive care unit was not different between groups, but the incidence of late-onset sepsis among all enrolled infants was significantly lower in the B group (3.9%, 6/153) than in the P group (10.0%, 13/130; P < 0.05).No differences were observed in the incidence of other adverse outcomes including mortality.

Mentions: Figure 2 plots days at which infants in each group reached enteral feeding at a volume of 100 mL/(kg/day). The difference between the groups was significant (P < 0.05), most evident at approximately 10 days after birth.
